Ultras 22 and 23

Just a quick recap, I'm sorry I haven't been on top of this blog for awhile but I have just set up my new personal training  business (Steele's Inspirational Fitness) also being finishing off relevant qualifications and Hardmoors 60 prep plus the aftermath of the Hardmoors 110.

ULTRA NO 22 - Baslow Bootbash 27 miles in about 5hrs 15 (started run late)

ULTRA NO 23 - West Highland Way 95 miles in 24hrs 26 (WET WET WET WET)

Ultra 23 was originally going to be a 2 section BGR but due to weather conditions over the Helvelyn range we had to cut the first day short, ran  up Scafell Pike and surrounding areas on Sunday but didn't do the golden distance. I have entered a 24 hour track race (Tooting Bec) in September so will use this as one of my 100 finishes. I damaged my leg on the WHW so the plan of adding 5 miles to the race to make it  100 miles wasn't very practical with my leg .

I plan this week to write up reports for the WHW race and the BGR

This week I have a 10k race Tuesday night (will possibly scrap this) followed by running 8.5 miles from Barkston Ash to Boston Spa via Tadcaster for the 'Real Relay' at 23.15. A 5 mile Fell race over Carlton Bank on Wednesday night, this is all dependant on my bad leg. Saturday would possiblyly be a 32 mile recce of the Osmortherley Phoenix route with good mate Garry Scott and Sunday the Hamsterley Forest Marathon (North East Marathon Club)

Saturday 7th July will be the Osmotherley Phoenix
Sunday 14th July Marlborough Downs 33 (not an event)
Sat / Sun 21-22nd Weekends grace to rest before the Lakeland 100 (never happens though ;0) )
Fri - Sun 27-29th  Lakeland 100 (A race of the year)
