In two days time I’m having me some more of this.
The Adidas Thunder Run is a 24-hour relay race (some people do it solo), covering as many 10km cross country loops as your team can muster. Last year we ran through intense heat, hailstorms, rain, mud, darkness and even, very aptly, thunder.
It’s a brilliant weekend. A festival for running and a serious challenge. Can’t wait to get back out there at 4am.Tweet Pin it
It’s been five days since I crossed the Race to the Stones 100km finish line and I’ve quite rightly been resting ahead of Saturday’s 24 hour relay the Adidas Thunder Run.
But about now I’m thinking I should venture out and see if I can still put one foot in front of the other.
There’s no muscles soreness anymore. Calves are a little tight but I’m rolling them to within an inch of their life.
Maybe just one tiny wafer thin mile…Tweet Pin it
Hmmm, when you say bubble guts are we talking windypops or Paula Radcliffe-ing?
I’ve never had big issues with either really. Well, I’ve certainly had wind but I figure it’s the runners behind who suffer that not me. There’s no room for politeness when you’re hard into mile seven as far as I’m concerned.
What are you eating before you head out as this will have a big effect too? As will your overall diet.
Also do you do your do before you start running? I tend to opt for some kind of coffee enema to try and clear the path before I run.
I’m not sure that really answers your question or helps. But I wish you (and your guts) all the best of luck.
You’ve probably heard of this but the geo-caching app is awesome for cities and towns. It turns a city or urban landscape into a treasure map. You have to use the app to find treasure all over the city! I love this app!
That’s a great shout. Thanks.Tweet Pin it
I’m on the hunt for the best active city apps in the US for a piece I’m writing.
I’m after apps that can turn the urban into adventure, inspire people to get out and make more of their city. Something like the Salomon City Trail apps
Anyone got any killer apps they use and would recommend?Tweet Pin it
100 degrees is crazy. Although Saturday was only 64 degrees the humidity makes it a whole lot worse. Your sweat doesn’t evaporate so your self cooling system malfunctions. But still, the temps you’re talking about are extreme. Best of luck with it!
We Brits love to moan about the weather! What kind of suffering does Texas throw at you? Does it make my 64F look like a jog in a supermarket chilled goods aisle? What race are you thinking of?
Well, right now I’m feeling a bit beaten up physically and, for the first time, mentally. There were times on Saturday that I seriously questioned my running. That said, I’ve got a thing called the Thunder Run this Saturday.
I did it last year, it’s a 24-hour relay race. So that’s next.
Then back to the Berlin Marathon in September and hopefully New York in November.Tweet Pin it
