Thanks for the heads up TR. I hadn't bothered to look at the map in case it put me off starting! Glad we have shed that pesky .71 of a mile off the total distance! Personally I would have kept the road section and lost that bit round the woods at the end but there you go.
The numerous blank pages in this year's training diary are taking their toll and all my long runs (all 4 of them!!) have been a slog. Still undecided as to whether to stick to the full and accept a very painful, slow day or to bail out and follow the half instead. Think I will make my mind up on the day.
You got all your logistics sorted for next week TR? You still joining us Brer? Faya you ready for the half?
Brer I think you have definitely put the miles in! Amazing stuff as always. Not as busted as I was but not 100%.
Good luck to everyone heading up and down the mountain today.
Sorry you won't be joining us at the Trail on Sunday Brer. I will keep an eye out for you TR. I will be towards the back adopting a cautious get round before the cut off time approach.
Well done TR and Brer on completing the PLU. Kept an eye on your progress via the online tracker. Was that a sprint finish TR?? As for the Snowdonia Trail..... yes it was harder this year. They had replaced probably the fastest 3 miles with the Welsh bog snorkelling course! I fell 3 times and at one point was thigh deep in water (my fault for trying to find a faster route round some mud). 6.32 this year (new PW) and half an hour slower than last year which considering the lack of training I was more than happy with. Not sure I have any burning desire to have another go next year. You going back for the ultra in 2018 TR?
Welcome back JD2. Glad to hear you are back running - has it been 2 years?! Should be loads of places floating about over the next couple of months. Think Facebook is the place to keep an eye on.
Everytime I woke in the night I had a quick look at the tracker to see how you guys were fairing out there. Fair play to you both. Don't know how you keep going and navigating after running all day.
I thought the bog section was pretty awful and if there had been a few days of real Welsh weather the week before it could have been impassable. Glad I tied my laces tight! You fancy taking in the climb of Moel Heborg before Snowdon on next year's STM ultra?
Good luck this weekend Brer. You got your 250 vest yet?
