    Excellent Charlie - that is a massive run. I see from the pace profile that it got a little bit tough!

    Thanks everyone! Yes I estimated what I hoped was possible (7hr45) from extrapolating WAVA% from Wings for Life, more or less, but it was clearly too optimistic. Probably just aimed too fast, though maybe my gel-only nutrition strategy was a mistake, I don't know. Very cocky for first 42M, feeling fantastic, but then the wheels came off pretty fast and I quickly reverted to plan B (survive and finish with dignity!). Final insult was some ripples of cramp in my L calf, which could have brought me to a walk -- just avoided by running peg-leg style using mainly R leg for a bit! And maybe 3 big races in 4 weeks was a bit insane too of course... (VLM, WfL, today)

    Fantastic Charlie. I've been following you on the live update all day as I've passed in and out the house. Great pace. So two weeks rest and then off to circumnavigate Wales? ;-) I'll offer to be a support rider.

Kudos
