Well, I've had my last day and I'm packing my bags ready to leave. This week has been a major deviation from my regular running. According to my marathon training plan, I should have done 52 miles on flat or slightly undulating roads around Hertfordshire. Instead, I've chosen to do 47 miles, mostly on mountain trails at altitude. My legs have been battered, pummeled and stretched to within an inch of their active existence, ...

One of the great things about mixing with other obsessive runners, whether at the club or on a specialist holiday like this, is the gems of knowledge you pick up. The sort of anecdotal tips from people who've experienced the latest running shoes, or tried the latest supplements or read a particularly good book or magazine.
