I used to read a lot and post a bit in here, and am hoping to learn more once again.
I ran a 100 I organised myself last year, managed 72 miles and couldn't get my hips to behave any longer. It was a challenge to run solo, no competitive element, no support stations. Luckily I have the river thames nearby and there are pubs and restaurants all along it that will fill water bottles and sell extra food.
Since then I fell out of running, lost my mojo! I realised I need a big challenge to aim at, so next year I'm running 180 miles over 4 days in northern spain. Again, solo, which I like, as I'm too slow for races! It's new for me to run 50+ mile distances back to back and I would be very grateful for advice from anyone with experience. I will have a basic hotel room each night, so a decent bed and a bath but no chance of ice baths (if still recommended). Plenty of beer on tap though! (must refuse this).
Thanks for any advice. I am excited about running once again!!!
