nictinworth Great to be back out exploring old trails after a week of no running, but I'm definitely not recovered from the #hk100 yet. Heart rate felt maxed out the whole way and I hardly had any strength in my legs. A good showing at KOTH next weekend looking unlikely.

nictinworth Hoping this horrible pollution clears in time for everyone doing the Hong Kong Marathon tomorrow, but also hoping if it doesn't that it's another strong wake up call for our puppet government (to ignore again.) #hongkong #thisishongkong #discoverhongkong #pollution #hkmarathon 1d

nictinworth On the HK100 this weekend, the Kei Ling Ha to Gilwell Camp section was a deep, dark mental and physical struggle. A mix of lackadaisical walking and poor running attempts. There were however, some glorious views as the sun began to settle, that took the edge off an inglorious occasion.

nictinworth The full story deserves a blog post, but yesterday's HK100 ultra was nothing short of transcendental. Fell off my splits badly after spending 30 mins at CP5 managing cramps and a busted gut.
Pushed on through some of the deepest, darkest pain cave moments I've ever experienced, and then pulled it together to pass 85 runners in the last 17km, over two of the gnarliest climbs.
Two hours slower than my PR, but most content that I stuck through it for a finish. This one will stick with me for a while.

nictinworth Finally seem to have my #running mojo back, and just in time for the @hk100ultra. A sub-5hr on the Lantau King of The Hills 33km mountain marathon was more then enough to make up for a rotten DNF last year. You know it's been a great race when your legs are covered in dirt and the #beer tastes like unicorn tears.

nictinworth Pretty stoked to see the photo that I took on Ma On Shan at the 2013 @hk100ultra being used on all their posters for this year's race. That was rather a sublime moment for me and a capture that I treasure as I went on to run a strong race and finish in sub-15hrs. This year I am gunning for sub-14 and hope to repeat some of the same positive vibes and emotions that the course and race gave me last time.

nictinworth It will be dark, my legs will be battered, I will be 84km into the race and this 1,400 stair grind up to the top of Needle Hill will be the last true test before the summit of Tai Mo Shan. I will persevere!

nictinworth Sunset falls from the top of Tai Mo Shan on my first run of 2015, and last long run before the HK100 in two weeks. A fantastic day out with Dom and Tilly and a perfect reminder of why I run. The people, the places, the memories. Happy new year, and may it bring you peace, joy and happiness on the trails!

nictinworth As The clock passes midnight on Christmas Eve, so too my ten day annual social media cleanse approaches*. A Die Hard, Elf and Love Actually trilogy herald the approach of Christmas Day, and with it my very best wishes to you all for this Holiday and the New Year. May it bring you and your loved ones all your wishes, and the world a peace it so desperately needs. (*not applicable to strava)

nictinworth Deep fried beancurd is a top 5 dish for me on Po Toi. Cold sail over but the food was an immense payoff. Best seafood in Hong Kong. #hongkong #eating #food 1mon
