    Last Place & Proud of it: Lakes Traverse 100k - great views, climbs, generous cut offs & soggy feet

    Last Place & Proud of it: Lakes Traverse 100k - great views, climbs, generous cut offs & soggy feet

    Last Place & Proud of it: Lakes Traverse 100k - this chat with the super inspirational Caroline Johnson really made me fall in love with ultra running again! She describes a super friendly, supportive race through stunning Lake District scenery with generous cut offs (just the way I like it!) which has really reminded me how much I miss that place! Off camera at the end Caroline said she would also like to do the Northern Traverse (the whole 190 mile coast to coast route at the same time as the Lakes Traverse event) so we will watch her progress!

    How to go from 50 mile ultras to the 103km Race to the King (64 mile) ultra with coach Tim Pigott

    How to go from 50 mile ultras to the 103km Race to the King (64 mile) ultra with coach Tim Pigott

    Upping the distance, gradually - the jump from 50 mile ultras straight to 100 miles sounds a bit much so I’ve booked the Race to the King 100k (65 mile) ultra in June 2024. Does the training differ at all? What should I be doing? And as usual for this exhausted mum, what’s the minimum I can get away with? Coach and Physio Tim Pigott from HP3 Coaching is here again to share his advice, ahead of his Chianti Ultra Trail this weekend - good luck Tim!
    How to go from 50 mile ultras to 100km (65 mile) ultras with coach Tim Pigott was originally on YouTube here https://youtube.com/live/7HxwV9Onefo

    Tim has made some Wild Ginger Running training plans including drills and skills, take a look here https://www.trainingpeaks.com/my-training-plans/WildGingerRunning
    In 2000 a car on the wrong side of the road, overtaking on a blind summit, crashed into coach Tim's car leaving him in a coma for two weeks and life-threatening injuries that took him years of surgeries and rehab to recover from. He is now mostly held together by metal. Find out more about the accident and his road to recovery here https://www.youtube.com/live/dRzi1AvUNOA
    Coming up next time with Tim:
    I feel tired and exhausted a lot of the time - maybe the next episode could be about that! Is it over training, under fuelling? Or just a byproduct of having an energy-absorbing toddler and full-time job?

    Last place & proud of it: puking & blisters on the Ring of Fire 135 mile, 3-day ultra round Anglesea

    Last place & proud of it: puking & blisters on the Ring of Fire 135 mile, 3-day ultra round Anglesea

    Today we chat to the amazing last placed runner of the 3-day, 135 mile Ring of Fire 2023, Terry McCormick. Terry suffered from a bad stomach on the first day, then a horrendous blister on the second day (turn away during the photos if you're squeamish!), and continued on with the third day! He's an absolute machine. Enjoy all his tips in this episode of Last Place & Proud of it where we celebrate the achievements of those at the back of the pack on Britain's most famous and brutal trail and ultra races.
