Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

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!!
