William goes past 400 mile mark

Alan writes –

400 miles down - 600 miles to go

“Early this sunny morning William passed 400 miles”

Alan tells me –

“The 5 hour session from 1:30am proved particularly hard, but with a very short break and then a large bowl of porridge, he was off with continued vigour.”

Oh the wonders of porridge! But seriously, this isn’t just an Orcadian / Scottish thing, oats are a really good source of nutrition and William uses them a lot as part of both his training and in-race diet.

Alan persuaded William to pause for a photo –

William is now pushing on for the 500 mile mark…
