Strictly speaking week 2 of training but the first I've recorded. 68 days to go - leg strength, running efficiency and general suffering on the agenda for the next few weeks... Ultimate goal is a sub 15 hour for my first ultra with enough in my legs to feel like I've finished strong! Next week I'll go into a bit more detail on how I'm approaching things and why. Any questions etc just fire away below. GLHF
