It has been sometime since my last post and that been mainly due to a very busy domestic schedule spending time with the family and slowly coming back from a suspected stress fracture in my left foot.
However I am now back in training and decided it was about time to book my first event for next year. So I decided to enter the Lakeland 50.
Having always wanted to go to the Lake District I thought why not see it the best way possible and throw in a challenge. There is a 100 race option as well however I thought that it would be a wiser decisiong to do the 50 mile race. It still has 10,000 feet of ascent / descent, involve map reading navigation and running into the night all of which I have never done.
Really looking forward to this event but I will need to up the mileage, plan in some more events before then as it is in July and purchase some some new additional kit (backpack, headtorch etc).
Until next time
