Well done to everyone who completed it today...good luck to everyone who has to complete it tomorrow!

My tips from today:

  • Blissford Hill gets steeper at the top - where a photographer will likely be waiting so remember to smile (the feed station is just after - Thank God!)!
  • Brockenhurst is a surprising big place one you see the sign welcoming you back...so keep going.
  • Watch out for Wildlife, ponies, sheep, pigs and cows - I imagine you'll come off a lot worse if you hit any of the giant cattle.
  • Try and keep your heart rate within it's max, according to garmin I hit 103%
  • And HAVE FUN!

2 NEW FOREST 100 SUNDAY on Wed 05 Oct 2011, 06:33

Did it Sunday with Carlos. Fantastic event.
I forgot to smile at the camera at the top of the hill but managed to spit some chosen expletives at him instead. Sharply followed by an apology.

Well to be honest there was only the one but 25% did take me by surprise. I have been to the forest countless times and never found that before.
And there was me hoping to get round in just the big ring.
