...but I've signed up to do some ultra running in Feb 2019. Basic gist is I've got to get through 150 miles of Costa Rican jungle/river/beach/mountains in 6 days. Not sure how prepared I am for it, but I'm sure it'll be reet.
Just about recovered from this now - though my knees probably disagree with you. It was fucking ridiculously hard. I had done fuck all training, forgot to pack a sleeping bag, or a sleeping mat. Temps and humidity were unrelenting. Managed a long standing knee tendon issue ok for the first two days, but then the rest I couldn't do downhills at all. Got the shits at the end of day three. At least being in a jungle I had loads of leaves to help me out. But still had to make at least 15 pit stops a day so my arse could vomit. Some of the monkeys didn't like me doing that. I left my only pair of running shorts at the first camp, so did the rest in boxer shorts. But I finished it, and it was absolutely amazing and I reckon I'll probably end up doing another ultra event in a few years time!
Can still donate if you like, and get me that little bit closer to my target.
