Another crack at the HM55

So here we go again...3 weeks till my second attempt at the Hardmoors 55. Training has been going fine - milage actually less than last year, but more relaxed about training, and strangely my times are faster and I have more confidence in maintaining my overall pace. I put this all down to completing my first ultra on New Years Day (HM30) and being pushed on a 20 miler recce with my new training partner, Pat. I knocked a full hour off what I usually do a twenty miler in!

All this and running with a GPS has pushed me into a zone where I actually believe that it is possible for me to not only finish a 55 mile trail race, but maybe, possibly finish it on time! Just maybe, hey? Watch this space...
