Missed all the "this year's running goals chat" but since we're talking ultras... My 2018 goal was to run an ultra, with my furthest run so far being London marathon, so I've entered Thames Trot (50 miles, Feb 3) and Endure 24 (24hr, June 9) with the idea that 100 miles would be nice.
Went to recce the first 25 miles of the TT course on Friday and couldn't resist continuing to Goring making it just over 30 miles. So that's my 2018 running goal achieved*, I've run an ultra! About 6:20 and managed to spend 20 mins stood still (peeing and map reading I guess) so there's time to save on the day. Hoping for a dry spell, in January, in England (I know), because the first 10 miles is very slippery with lots of unrunnable sections.
Actually felt mostly ok when I finished, got a bit overwhelmed by the choice in the newsagents for my post run refuel though...
* I do have a separate goal for E24 but I haven't told anyone that yet, it might be complete pie in the sky.
