Walk with Liz in Long ashton woods - nice, but her knee still poor, 11 months nearly now....

My RH kneecap pain is weird, been there a few weeks, and bad pos-5 mile TT, but now easing.

Running 38:17 [3] 8.06 km (4:45 / km) +101m 4:28 / km
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 10

Steady grassy Stoke park run, after a big storm. One big hill. One reasonable effort on grass later, then a tempo last km on road mostly gradual downhill.

Felt v v fit, clearly not training hard enough! (Marten is right?)

Climbing (Sport) 1:00:00 [4]

indoor roped climbing at UCR with Lynne. Weather has now properly shat out, so outdoors no longer an option.

Not bad - many 6b's, and starting to train on the step, juggy stuff in prep for Greece. But also some vertical fingery routes. Yay.

Knee fine. Various crackling shoulder bits a "worry" - but nothing bad happened, so all good.

Lynne stopped early (tired), so I even did some bouldering at the end alone. Cranka Rooney. V enjoyable.

(rest day)

Hoped to get out easy trad climbing, but too damp / drizzly / greasy, so didn't.

Stiff.

Results are out from yesterday, & I'm only 10th on the segment! Damn these youngsters. I can't cut it anymore. First Vet50 by over a minute, from Paul (who ran 17:23 for 5km about 5 years ago, but has slowed since turning 50)

My lifetime best for 5miles is 25:33 (1991). Dream on, Phil.

Running race 30:42 [5] 8.05 km (3:49 / km) +14m 3:47 / km
shoes: adizero adios 4

Southville's "Not the Prom 5-miler", a 5 mile / 8.05km segment, to be run between noon today & noon tomorrow. Mostly flat with a slight slope 3 times, and a bit of a breeze into that slope. But fast for sure.

Went fine, intended to do 4min/kms for 3km then "let rip" if I felt up to it. Starting just ahead of 2 others, that backfired & I went off a bit fast - 3:45 pace. 2 miles came up in 12:11, which seemed a bit suicidal. I kept it going, sort of; 5km was a rather quick 2020 pb of 19:02, (I did 19:13 on these roads in a 5km challenge with Simon in May), and the last 3km weren't easy, in fact grim. Just held on. Strava segment says 30:35 so that's OK age 56 for 5 miles.

I got a good "flow" on the road that I think i was lacking in the spring. I certainly noticed it during my 10mile TT 3 weeks ago, where i smoothly cruised km 3 in 3:56. Nice! Legs dead now.

Over to Simon ....... :-)

Climbing (Bouldering) 1:00:00 [4]

Bloc indoor climbing - shoulder now better, & Greece tickets rebooked thru Aegean airlines (LHR) (since EasyJet cancelled our Bristol ones) ..... 7 - 22 November......

- so gloves off, & into hard training now for that trip. Totally beasted myself. Fingers wrecked. Yay. I'm sure I like painful sports. What's wrong with enjoyable ones? (like golf). Hmmm.

I've but mostly retired, am trustee for a charity Action for ME, do extra stuff on ME/CFS research. I'm generally fit these days, though suffer from variable health, I have Polands' Syndrome, and had M.E./CFS from age 33 - 40 (43 for purposes of sport). I also had major surgery on my upper intestines in 2017.
