Thanks for all the kind words from everyone following my last post. Even those from the opposition ...
My son (Keir) was well impressed by those. He said: "I don't think sprinters would congratulate other sprinters from other countries on their selection for the World Championships."
I couldn't possibly comment other than to say that the world of ultra running is a very friendly place to be. I'm pleased I live there.
Also ... I've added the James Jarvis video (Onwards) to this page.
There's a book edited by Kevin Beck called 'Run Strong' which I'm finding very useful at the moment. Lots of stuff about all aspects of running training. Much of the information can easily be adapted to ultra running. More details here.
