Well it had to happen sooner or later? After 3 out of 4 days running off-road courses I got a bit of a sore toe/blister. I think more from the trail shoes rubbing than the course in fact [as I swapped back to normal road shoes on Sunday and was fine].
The day was rather warm when I decided to run at 3pm rather than noon as originally planned, so as to let my running partner in the mixed pairs break up her weekend mileage more comfortably. It was great to be back at the Spitfire Scramble 24 hour relay event for the 3rd year as part of an even bigger viewtube team.
It being that each lap was 6 miles, I had to run on some more miles after getting to marathon distance, so in fact ran a 30 mile ultra today. nice little ‘bump’ in the middle of the course kept things interesting as well as sections through the woods etc.
Had to work a little to get 3:58.35 then slowed down for the rest of the miles.
