Now it’s down to the day and who can ‘hold on’ for the longest.
In the last 40 days I have trained my butt off – literally – dropping 5kgs, I have gone through 3 pairs of shoes, I have clocked up over 60hrs of running and an extra 50hrs of cross training (weights, cycling, gym cardio and swimming) and chewed through an uncountable number of mule energy and protein bars.
And now I am heading to San Francisco to meet the rest of my Salomon family in preparation for The North Face 50mile Championships.
Thanks so much to all who have been part of this mission. My wonderful family and friends, my understanding and just as crazy running buddies, ABSolute Gym, Helen and team at Physio Performance, Mikki nutritionist and everyone else who has given me encouragement. Ill be drawing on your strength.
Keep an eye on Salomon Running or my Facebook page, irunfar or flightcrew twitter for race updates! We set off at 5am on Saturday 3rd Dec.
