A few Photos from Ennerdale Ultra 50k Race 20/10/18
People ask me what I do preparing for a race esp the night before n just before the race.
I just do my own thing.
The night before this race, had a relaxing evening not doing much besides eating n smoking.
I went to bed just after 10pm, hoping to wake up at 6am, but I woke up just after 4am n got up at 4.30am.
Get very nervous before race's.
Never sleep much the night before a race.
Made myself a coffee n had a morning smoke.
Also had some left over Lasagne from the night before, then smoking more fags and a few cups of coffee.
By 7.30am I left my house n over to meet Paul to drive us down to Ennerdale.
Got there just over a hour, out the car had a smoke then over to pick my number up sort myself out then I just go for a walk chatting catching up with people while smoking a few fags, never once I warm up or stretch, mind you I do stretch my lungs in n out.
Once the race has started I'm fine, so relaxed. Enjoying what's all around me.
This time I ran with a few other runner's from the start and enjoyed a chin wag with them and having a laugh.
I always go out to enjoy n have fun while racing no matter how hard it is.
Once I finish the race, the first thing I will go for is my Fags n I'll smoke at least 3/6 within the first couple of hour's. Which I enjoy the most.
I don't warm down I'ver.
Get home have a big meal then relax for the evening.
Got to bed just before midnight n woke up at 4.30am, so I got up. I can't sleep long after a race due to my adrenaline going 100mph.
Not for everybody tho.
But one thing I do DO, is Train Bloody Hard, Push my Body Loads n put the Miles in n I enjoy it loads 😊
Flat, Hills, Fells, Hill Rep's, Speed Work n smash my legs.. so far this year I've ran over 2500 miles 😊💪🏃🌕⛅💧❄⛄🌙🌞⚡🌈☔☁⛅☀
