Lakeland 50 is fast creeping up on me!
I can’t believe I only have 6 weeks left to go, information and emails are coming thick and fast from the organisers now and it’s becoming to feel a bit more real.
I think I have now decided on kit , the last thing i was dithering about was shoes and i think that my recent purchase of some Adidas Terrex trail shoes fit the bill perfectly! I also have some Inov8 roclite 305 that i have worn for the three peaks race in April but try as i might i just can’t fall in love with them!
The next five weeks training will be focusing on as much decent hill climbing as I can get in ( I have a camping trip in the Lakes friday so thats training sorted for this week).
I also want to get at least a 50k long run in as well,i feel it really helped me in the run up for the Chester Ultra.
Most important of all we have just received the menus for the onsite caterers ,look at this for a menu!!
If you haven’t heard of the Lakeland 50 before have a watch of this and if it doesn’t make you feel a bit tingly you may be unwell 😉
