Dartmoor Discovery

paskha This is my best result in recent years, yet it was HOT and I remember drinking and dripping all the way round, but never losing my ooomph.  My training must have been QUALITY as it certainly wasn't QUANTITY.  I'd had a Run-Walk marathon at Tresco in April, due to stomach problems, then the usual An Resek Hellys (10 mile multi-terrain) a week later and I'd cycled there (Helston is 13 miles away, so total of 26 miles).  For some reason I then did nothing for 3 whole weeks!!  Realising that Dartmoor was now just 3 wks away - what could I do?  I decided I had to do a LONG run, but thought I couldn't or shouldn't just go off and do 20+ miles.  So I ran a very hilly 10 miles and repeated that on the next two days (fast walking most of the third day). All three days were HOT and I had gone out intentionally in the middle of the day.  I was aching and creaking and moaning at the end of the third day - but the training worked!! Mounts Bay Harriers 6:49:00 6:49:00 7:07:00 6:49:00 49.29
