Kirkwall Training Camp today

Off on the ferry to the Orkney capital, Kirkwall, this morning for my ‘race specific’ Training Camp – basically a couple of days of just running long hours with brief rest pauses just like a race.  I have a great 896 metre path loop near the Peedie Sea which is ideal.

This time there will be a lot of track running too as the British UltraFest 6 Day race is a track event.

Luckily the Pickaquoy Centre has a great all-weather track so I will spend many hours on there.

Weather forecast looks promising although a bit cooler than of late.
