Ultrarunning in a nutshell

Na. You don't have to be fast to run 520 miles in 7 days. It's 3mph. Walking pace.
She has a small bag, must pack light. But she's not retracing her routes so must be taking everything. Clothes must be sweaty.

I can't see her carrying all of her kit for her 2 week "Holiday" on her "40 mile" run today. She must have loads of stuff, not just running clothes.

Looks like she will collapse soon. If you are in the area please call an ambulance for Amy.

I WANT that shirt!
Even better, other idiots are paying for it.

Happy for her. She's staying fit, running around lovely islands.
The splits on Strava are meaningless because they exclude stationary time. Elapsed time for those uphill miles would have been much longer because she showed no sign of having sweated in the photographs. This isn't a criticism, just an observation.
Especially impressive when you look at the elevation profile. Really dropped the hammer pushing it uphill on miles 8 & 9. Was essentially falling off a cliff at mile 30 but didn't bother trying to impress anyone and instead ran her slowest mile of the entire run.

Even more reason to stay and keep posting on here, because the control freak scamming boyfriend can't stop you.

I've enjoyed this thread but I'm leaving now and won't be back. Amy Hughes is not a very good runner, which is fine, but she claims to be a world class runner and doesn't even train, which isn't fine.
I'm leaving because debate outside this thread is impossible. Dave Keighley is aggressively removing comments from her Facebook in order to conceal the fact that his vacuous girlfriend is full of shit. Anyone who still believes Amy's claims has got a serious problem and there's nothing left to say.
Have fun guys, see you around.
There are many miles of fantastic mountain trails in the north of Mallorca, it's a really beautiful place and a trail running paradise. Amy chose to run along the main road from one side of the island to other. 9 miles round Palma on Thursday, 37 miles across the island yesterday. I can't see her doing 200 miles for the 14 days.
Look like a shorter run today due to travelling to a different Island.
How far did she run around Palma? There is a cycle route circuit 70+ miles, her runs totalled much less than this.
Can't see 300 miles being covered at this rate never mind 400.
