Hi,
Well done!

Running is very power sapping because you spend time air born, walking no.
So long runs tend to be brisk walks, especially if hills are involved.
Walked 46 miles in 16.5 hrs with camping kit etc, footpath mostly over the moors, coastal paths might be hard core, where I live there are many many steps as the terrain is so steep on the coast.

I thought my cycling events were extreme but I know a guy who has just done his 87th marathon of the year !!! including 10 in 10 days and in a couple of weeks doing a 100 mile run, that's extreme !!

There is a guy down by me like that, he has done 2 10 in 10s, winning races all over the place. I did a 24 hour race that he did earlier in the year and he looked as smooth in the last couple of hours as I could ever hope to. The man is a metronome.
