Show Notes

The Smurf & Smurfette podcast is back after a few weeks' hiatus while Cairns 50 and Dead Cow Gully Backyard Ultra were under way.

But we are back with a big one! This week we hear all about Dead Cow Gully Backyard Ultra and the journey to 36 yards, 241.2km's and "the assist" for Smurf and his crew of Smurfette and Kate. After hearing some snippets from throughout the event, Smurfette interviews Smurf and chat about;

* Training and tapering leading in to DCG
* Event week and pre-event nerves
* Nutrition - the things that went horribly wrong and the things that went well
* Planning milestones and persevering towards small goals along the way
* What it was like during the laps at DCG
* The inter-loopal times...the plan and executing this period in between laps
* As things wore on and in to the second day, how the final hours began to play out
* The massive highs and demoralising lows of a Backyard Ultra
* Reflections on things learnt from the experience
