I am now in week 8 of my plan to become an ultra runner. Apart from week 2 it has been fairly ok. Week 2 was a bit if a disaster. A light cold, bruised hurting hip and all sort of things dampened my spirit. I wrote an endless blog post about it, but it remained unpublished. Not sure if anybody would had been interested in so much moaning. I still managed to do my 60k that week though. Now I am the third week of doing 66k and no real problems so far – apart from today: a simple 30 minutes lunch break run turned out to be one of the hardest I have done for a while. No clue why, no clue what I was doing different, it was just pretty hard and definitely no fun. I still have 24k to cover till Saturday and hope this was a one off.
