Dam Hill 24 Hour Ultra - September 17, 2016

Did the Dam Hill 24 hour in London this past weekend.    Things were going fairly well and I got through the 50 mile marks in 10:16:53 with a 40 minute break after 50K.   Splits are ...

30K            3:14:46

Marathon    4:32:45

50K             6:12:54

50 Miles    10:16:56

 After 50 miles I took a long dinner break.  After running in the rain most of the day my feet were quite pruney.  Right foot has some nasty blisters ,  left foot none.  I attributed it the fact that the right foot was hitting the uneven curb all the time causing movement.     I was also getting some nasty chaffing on the inner legs in spite of body glide ...8+ hours of steady rain took its tool.   Tummy was great and I was well hydrated and more or less had enough calories ( you can never get enough ) but I was getting some pretty nasty indigestion.     Stretch goal was 160 km but after a 90 minute break heading out around 8pm I decided to just aim for mid 120s surpassing last years Dam Hill effort.    My right foot was very painful but it was typical popped blister pain that would subside.    Did a lap with a mix of run /walk and quickly heated up and was sweating.  Tech T with my Nathan Vest was too much.   After 2 laps I sat down ,  looked up at the stars ,  took a gel and some water then decided I really didn't want to go any further.  Headed to the timer , handed in my chip collected my medal and headed home making it to bed before 1am.
