Bradgate and Swithland long training. Ran a course that I missed in 2015 and took it as a proper race. Orienteering and running really well today, can't wait for next weekend now. Garmin didn't start but the climb and distance and roughly accurate. Unfortunately no trace.

Cool training out on Burbage with daneo. Both taking it fairly easy but the map was dodgy in places making it tricky along with the scale. One or two small misses in the circle but generally interpreting and executing well. Terrain was sapping!

Masson Hill Fell Race- 3rd.
Looking forward to this and good to have Matt out as a bit of a target to see how close I could get to him. After a race sunday and raz yesterday thought I'd feel a bit crap but other than slightly tight calves and some filthy blisters from sunday I was feeling good. Set off quite quick on the road to avoid the box and then settled on the first climb tucking in behind Matt, Harry Holmes (who won sunday) and a Keswick guy. Felt good and moved past the Keswick guy to sit on Harry's shoulder until the slightly flatter bit. Rolling section was fun and was gaining ground on the front 2, maybe 10m off Matt at the closest, then with them working up the hill together on the second climb and me solo in 3rd by then they pulled away a bit but was still in contact at the trig at the top. Didn't see anyone on the descent, quite a lot was wooded but the other 2 put a lot of time in to me, I suppose that's my lack of fell experience and I'm sure it'll improve. Kept pushing myself though and came in 3rd, still beat the previous record but ended up about 1min down to Matt and 30s to Harry. Pretty pleased with that and the prosecco won't go amiss. Looking forward to a few more of these this season.
