2014 DNS, but surely by mid-2016 you can put yourself back in working order?


It wasn't ME that needed to be in working order, it was my family. Specifically, my daughter.

I've entered; it looks like you can pay with plastic this year.

I'll post a race report a bit later tonight. Suffice to say the main cock-up was following the Bendy Ben Latent Fitness (tm ) training plan

There's your problem. An important part of the Bendy Ben Latent Fitness plan is to not enter races. Or at least not turn up.

It is vital to realise that in the Latent Fitness regime you are ALWAYS at your peak: aiming to peak for a race goes against the plan.

It is tough, but worthwhile.

There's an essential part of the plan that Ben is not letting on about: in race pacing.

The key to pacing, so you can finish, is always to focus on the on course photographs: you need to ensure that your kit is immaculate and that you look your very best - cool and collected.

Do this, and the correct pacing just falls into place.

you laugh

But.... What made me finish sierakow last year was the berrating you fuckers would have given me. The " I told you so mentality"

There was absolutely no way I wasnt going to finish on 16hrs training in the previous 12 months.

It's a mind game - you have to put everything else out of your mind. Time - don't care, what people think - don't care, where I place - don't care, it hurts - so what.

Finishing meant everything to me. On a tough course all I had to do was keep going.

I'll go back and beat my time. Then I'll worry about not being as quick as I could be. But that my friends is the story of my life :lol:
