Will add Yorkshireman and Dalesman later.
First post edited with all updates!
Would it be possible to put an asterisk next to those requiring support eg buddy runner - hope not taking the piss too much.
eg the Manx Xtreme, Tri Extreme, Celtman to name but a few
Whilst I understand the concept of requiring assistance, apart from attempting Extreme (again), I would much rather be trusted to be solo ala many of the ultra endurance running races.
np If people let me know I’ll add it
@gingerbongo this one? Some races have gone now though
The UK ultimate one looks good from a date and logistics perspective. But it’s multi lapped (don’t mind that too much) and a tiny field. So would probably just be a personal tt.
Would’ve liked Outlaw to be a month earlier, and that would’ve been ideal.
I like the look of Lakesman. But it’s a trek and a half. 6-7hrs away.
Has that gone?
@gingerbongo - Lakesman has only been correct distance once, in all of the years it’s been running.
Imagine going sub-10 and having that asterisk next to your name.
Nope. Not for me.
I clocked it pretty close for the bike and run. Is there zero buffer under distance?
You are correct!!! Sorry. Edited original post
Another Thread in need of updating…
He hasn’t even broken the magical 10:10 barrier.
Oh, 3 times since you asked
In all of those lovely roads we have in the UK, which are known for their buttery smooth surfaces.
And, at the time I was trying, with those huge packs of FUCKING ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NO FUCKING PERSON IN A FUCKING TEN MILE FUCKING RADIUS of me?
Yeah, easy to see why I never did it
I’ll add it to my 5:00.1 mile, 17:07 5km, 35:01 10km, 1:20:41 HM times, yeah?
So you didn’t go Sub 5:00, 17:00, 35:00 or 80? Either…
You must be RAGING!
ha ha ha!!!
I wasn’t “trying” for anything at any of them, though!!!
the mile was at 7pm, as a warm up for the 7:20pm 5km. Everything just “clicked” that night.
Following Team GB womens team obviously helped my performance that night
the 10km time was a bolt from the blue, just tucked in with some guys and hung on.
HM was 2019, first race after 5 years, hoping for 1:25-1:30, again, ended up seeing an old Derby XC “nemesis”, chatting to him and just had a really relaxing run
Thoroughly enjoyed that one.
So, I guess here, the moral of the story is the best performances come when there is zero pressure to perform.
Yes, time goals can really take the ‘fun’ out it in my experience!
Or your PBs are weak for a man of your potential.
