This was certainly an interesting race. I thought having a few half and full distance marathons would help me fly through this, boy was i wrong.
I experienced the most agonizing calf cramps from 16k's on, meaning i could only hobble along for the rest of it. The spasms were so bad that it looked like there was some creature moving around in my calf muscles
I guess i didn't stretch enough or lacked sufficient hill training. Advice on this would be most welcome ( Kate, TT, Peter ?)
The weather was perfect, the organization was excellent and it was extremely satisfying arriving at the top after 4 hours of mostly feeling like crap !
