And some self indulgent Deca Race reports on here Wink

Thanks a million for posting a link to these reports (and thanks to Repoman for the initial link).

I've only read Davem's and Big Ted's 2011 epics so far.

So much motivation and great training suggestions.

This is now making me focus on what a massive challenge I have taken on.

Thinking of doing JOGLE starting out next week.

Would be good training. Plan to take it easy. Going solo.

Any tips

Dave, on new meds and new therapist treating me for borderline personality disorder with Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, 60lbs over weight, out of breath going up stairs, 14 months out from this event wondering if I can get my fitness up to Deca level Confused Confused Confused as it's on my bucket list.

Still it could be worse, I could have been ginger Wink

take a puncture repair kit with you, and unless you have a car following you, keep to the back roads

On a serious note, I know Arthur has finished a Deca abroad, has any one over 60 finished at the Enduroman Deca's ? I'll be 64 by the time the Brutal Deca comes around, and it might be the inspiration I need.


And everyone knows gingers don't have a soul Very Happy
