No love for this?  Surely I won't be "running" on my own

Posting is a bit quiet on running matters. Please add how you are going. Some people almost treat like their own blog while they wait for others to join.
Perhaps helps keep them accountable.
Take it as an endeavour that not many do, which will make your accomplishment the more impressive, along of course with personal goals.
Oh, and DrinksRunner showed you some "like". :)

I'll be there, holding a stubby, and shouting abuse at the top of nellies.

Don't forget to say hi :)

CR has gotten a bit quiet over time. OP don't take the quiet as a lack of interest though!

Will this year be your first time doing a 100Km event?

I did the 50K up there last year and will be back again for the 50 this year, then crewing overnight for 2 friends who are doing their first 100K.

Make sure you check back in here and update us all how your plans are going.

The partner and myself are in for the 50k at this stage but maybe upgrade to the 100k again depending upon how we pull up from Old Ghost Ultra 85k in NZ in a few weeks.

Did the UTA100k last year in 23hrs with my partner (her first ever 100k) after a personal 100k DNF (at 66k with a stuffed knee) in 2016 and a 7hr 50k in 2017.

We were aiming for sub 20hrs last year and were well on target leaving the Aquatic Centre but I ate a Carmens bar there which made me sick and hence an extremely slow walk (think I have walked faster from the pub with the wobbly boot on actually) until I picked up approaching the Fairmont. We were behind schedule then and then my partner felt sick so I walked with her until approaching QVH where we picked up into a run. Way behind schedule by then so we just accepted it and ground our way to the finish. I would have liked to savour the beautiful sunrise a bit more that was behind us over the 3 Sisters but it was head down ass up to the top of Furber Steps and a very happy finish. So glad we toughed it out though.

Riffraff there was no mention of an offer of a beer at the top of Nellies :Praying:

Good luck everyone :)

Cheers,
Grahame

Yes most definitely, a nice drop.

Thanks, yes sounds like a good race from a few that have done it

I'm planning on it being my fist time finishing this 100km.

I've done two 100km events before, and UTA50 in 2015.

I made ithe Aqutic Centre in 2016 but DNF'd

My injury issue is quite significant, but I'm not yet prepared to give up and sell my entry.   Possibly to my detriment.

The MRI on my knee said Grade 4 chondromalacia in the femorotibial joint (more medial than lateral) and patellar surface.
Significant meniscus degeneration (more medial than lateral)
Medial femoral condyle oedema with insufficiency fractures.

I haven't run since January.  
Have had 1 PRP shot, which seems to be helping.
Over the weekend, whilst standing, Ii went to walk off and as i lifted my leg, something made a horrific crunch and a brand new pain started at the bottom of my kneecap.

On a positive note, it doesn't hurt to ride at all - which is good as I was helping at a 24 hr bike event, and using it as a session to test how my body reacts to going overnight.
Rode on and off for 28 hrs, from 9am to 1:30pm the next day.  

See my specialist on Thursday - and maybe another PRP shot after that.

Still hoping.

RSW how did you go?

2 shots done, and really feeling a lot better.
Sadly though, as I started to put in a few run:walks to remind my legs how to run, my other knee has given up taking the extra load and flared up with ITBS.

Hoping to get my specialist to hit me up with a cortisone shot next week.
In the meantime, no running, a little flat walking, some easy bike with the seat lowered.


Focussing on getting rid of the inflammation.  Nothing to be gained from pushing through now.

Still in denial, and still hoping to make the start (and finish) line!
