Great challenge if you're off work. Sleep-ins and a nap or five will help.

Should have run 35 miles by tonight with 4 left!
Yep being off work sure helps :0]
This I'll try a full Lydiard 100 mile week when I'm on holiday next month.
With some double days it should be a walk in the park !!!

Why the increase in mileage Rick? Going to have another crack at the marathon?
