And then I saw this

Yes this little event this looks very interesting to this budding Ultra Runner, which is kind of odd as just a few months ago I would have laughed at the suggestion of running around a track for several hours, now I'm thinking maybe its not such a bad idea!

The only question is, do I target 12 hours (given that I now know I can "run" (term used fairly loosely there) for 14 hours plus, or to I front up for 24 hours of running and see just how far I can go???

Decisions decisions, I'll ponder that one on my long run tomorrow morning

You have to be joking!

No jokes my friend. A fire has been lit, permission from the boss has been sought and gained (with a bemused shake of the head, but I'll take it), planning is now underway for circulating around a 400 meter track 375 times. I feel a blog post coming on! You want to join me for a 100 odd laps? It'll be exciting!!! 3rd place getter last year only clocked up 144k, I'm sure I could beat that in 24 hours (hence the 375 lap target).

I thought I was mad entering for the full but crickey dickens you take the cake.

Looking forward to the training updates for this!

Life without a challenge is boring, and this is a challenge! Simply lowering a previous time, while challengng in a very real way, isn't quite what I'm looking for these days. At the moment I'm more interested in pushing my limits rather than pushing my times.

Bring it on!

How do you train for something like this?
