I was invited by John Kynaston as a novice ultra-runner to participate as part of his regular podcast series following my 6 month training schedule in the build up to the West Highland Way race (a 95mile single stage footrace from Glasgow to Fort William).
Reflecting on my training and what I took away from the Highland Fling 53mile race the previous week. Thinking now about kit, times and addressing niggles. Last pre-race interview!
A review of training and racing so far including 34mile run on the course as part of the Highland Fling training camp.
My training so far, the highs and lows and beginning to build my support crew. I am at 1hr19 ish.
I introduce myself, my goals and motivation for the race and outline some training goals. 15min30.
