ENDURANCELIFE COASTAL TRAIL SERIES 2014
We did not run on this beach, but over the hill next to it see picture at the top The next section had been described as fast, and it was the easiest of the day. The weather forecast said this type of weather was to be expected for the rest of the week, except on Saturday, during the race, when there was going to be even more rain and wind. Yes, I did give away a safe-ish win, but this race was not an A-race, not even a B-race, in my race calendar, merely sighseeing in Wales. Har brukt den ganger, og har allerede revet hull i den. My main annoyance during this section, apart from the persistent ache in my glutes, was my waterproof trousers becoming waterlogged and heavy, clinging to my legs and creating a slight resistance that had to be ovecome for each step. Progress was slow, and there were sudden gusts that brought us all to a halt.

Another couple of runners sped past, pausing only briefly to check that I was ok. However, climbing up a hill we could really feel the benefit of a 50 mph tailwind.

The trail turned inland, meaning we were more sheltered from the elements, and we were for the most part running up and down gentle hills, and across fields. The weather forecast said this type of weather was to be expected serie the rest of the week, except on Saturday, during the race, when there was going to be serise more rain and wind.
Medics were on their way out onto the course to attend to other hypothermic runners. Since then we have both run lots and lots of races, mostly ultra marathons, but the CTS series will always be extra dear to us.
They sold Kendal mint cakes, and we intended to serries up. Due to leaf fall you had no idea if there were rocks, roots, low branches, or other tripping hazards in front of you, and I therefore chose to progress at quite a cautious pace.

I figured I was more comfortable with them on than off,though. Some of them were casulaties of the weather and their own optimism regarding the ambient temperature. The next couple of weeks after the race I was regretting and second guessing my decision to DNF, but now, a couple of months later I think I emdurancelife the right desicion. The cut off at Rhosilli would be Participants, supporters and friends. We were to run the marathon course first, running the length of three beaches, then return to Rhosilli enduranccelife run the 10k loop, basically repeating the first few miles of the marathon loop, and then turning back to Rhosilli again.
Maybe they just had been more conscientious with their eating and drinking than I had been? Out in the open fields it was at times difficult to stay on your legs. As it turned out, dropping out of the ultra did not prevent a mudbath, as the finishing area had been churned up by hundreds of runners milling about before and after their race.
After the beach came a couple of miles through a wooded section, and what looked like quite a technical trail. After the scary hill we came to the first beach, and new challenges in the form of a strong side wind and soft sand. The Endurancelife Team will be there from to hear your stories from the day and to share a well deserved drink! After km we arrived at beach number two.
Most of my other justifications for not finishing the ultra also turned out to be wrong. However, I soon had other things to worry about, such as the descent on the other side of the hill. The marshall at the finish line probably thought I had completed the ultra in record time, as I was subjected to an extremely thorough kit check.
Most of the mud on my shoes was actually acquired post-race As it turned out, dropping out of the ultra did not prevent a mudbath, as the finishing area had been churned up by hundreds of runners milling about before and after their race. Friday evening we continuously checked the weather forecast and Endurancelife webpage for updates. After the attempt to repair my blood sugar levels I slogged on through tdail mud to the third and final beach, where events unfolded much like on the second beach.
Svein-Erik did really well in the ultra, finishing 4th overall. De har XS her, men skynd deg, kun en igjen: With CTS Gower, it turned out to be fifth time unlucky….
Oh well, at least that meant running with a lighter pack than usual, as I would be wearing most of the mandatory kit. Str XS unisex, jeg bruker vanligvis str S.
Participant email distributed all events. They were still doing their job of keeping the water out, and if removed the tights I had on underneath would let both rain and wind through.
We’re always looking to make the website easier to use and more informative, so we welcome any suggestions. The landscape during the next 10k was stunning, green fields, steep cliffs bordering the seafront, and lava fields extending out into the surf, but I was becoming too tired to enjoy it.

The perfect nutrition bars for any tough challenge. Hvilke regnbukser brukte du? Thus every time I saw a headland jutting out into the sea my hopes that I neared the end of the marathon course were raised, and then dashed.
The only linear 10K, half, marathon or ultra courses in the CTS series, sries here will nourish your soul like nowhere else on earth.
This blog post has been nearly ready to publish for ages, but has been delayed by computer problems. In the middle of a steep ascent I stopped again, stuffing half a mint cake into my mouth in yet another desperate attempt to get my energy levels up.

On the second beach I still had quite a few runners in sight, but the field had stretched out, and everyone had to battle the winds on their own. On the first beach I had been running alongside another female, but soon after she disappeared, and I was informed at the first couple of checkpoints that I was in the lead.
I topped up my water bottle, stupidly not taking the time to mix in a sachet of energy drink.
