I ran every day in December. 31 days and altogether 320 miles. Averaging more than 10 miles a day. Some very tough sessions on ice and snow. It was certainly one of the hardest training months I have ever done.
2533 miles. About 7 miles per day on average. A PB if you like. Never did I ran more miles in a single year.
Loads of good race results.
1) Highlight was no question to finish the 95 miles WestHighlandWay Race for the first time! And in a very respectable 18:49. An epic race which I will never forget.
2) A new PB in the 53 mile Highland Fling. 8:09 and second place overall. On paper certainly my best Ultra race result ever.
3) A new PB in the 56 miles (or closer to 55?) Glasgow-Edinburgh Double Marathon by about 30 minutes. 6:55 and 4th place.
4) A new PB in the 43 miles Devil O' The Highlands. 6:22. I was not in my best shape but this was certainly a good race and I quite enjoyed it as always.
The four ultras above also resulted in a 5th place in the SUMS series.
Lowlight: Unfortunately I caught a chest infection just in time to spoil my Marathon PB attempt in Berlin, so that was slightly disappointing. Just two weeks before the race I felt strong enough to break 2:45 but it was not to be...
But looking back it was my fastest and strongest year of running ever. So I cannot complain.
Bring on 2011!!!
