Running - Offroad long (Shining Tor) 2:10:09 [3] 18.25 km (7:08 / km) +739m 5:56 / km
ahr:122 max:149 shoes: Inov-8 Roclite 290

Wanted to see how long it would take to run to the highest point in Cheshire, turns out quite a while! Pleased that I managed to run the whole way. Started raining as I got to the top which meant the view was of nothing unfortunately; I'll have to go again...
Totally soaked by the time I got home. Too hot to contemplate wearing a coat.

Got a bit lost on the way there - I blame the OS.

Running - Road/Track race (Lincoln Urban) 49:44 [5] 10.67 km (4:40 / km) +95m 4:28 / km
ahr:143 max:165 shoes: Brooks Ravenna 9

Good first 8. Slight error 9, seeing the first trap in the leg but not the second.this has happened before - on a longleg need to expect more than one.
Map folding error on 13 lost 30s, biggest error of the day, expecting angled road for ages which I was already past. Luckily turned off by feel before total off-map disaster.

One controversy, we were told that there was a level crossing but it wasn't the best route and we shouldn't go that way if there was a train. However - it WAS the best route and there WAS a train, so I lost time. I complained about this very politely at the end.

Rest of course fine. 1st; just.

Running - Offroad race (Pendle 3 Peaks) 1:39:50 [5] 15.06 km (6:38 / km) +891m 5:07 / km
ahr:137 max:163 shoes: X-talon 212 (blk/flro) - Nov17


Back to winter conditions - cloud, rain, wind - although still very mild. Enjoyed the downhills when they were grassy and not too steep; didn't like the rockier and steeper one down to the stream, lost a few places there. Similar route to the second half of the tour of Pendle including the three hard climbs; they're all quite short though. Struggled up as usual. Just about close enough to those ahead so as to not need to get the map out, although the clag made it a close call on a couple of occasions.
Second half of the race spent in a tussle with the second lady (lol) she was quicker on both steep down and steep up, but I'd pass her on the flatter stuff. Got a bit of a gap along the top before the last downhill and managed to hold on until the end. 3 mins down on first lady.

Good race, perfect running conditions.

Running - Offroad race (Hob Hurst's FR) 35:06 [5] 7.88 km (4:27 / km) +237m 3:52 / km
ahr:130 max:152 shoes: X-talon 212 (blk/flro) - Nov17


Good race. Fairly gentle uphill along tracks then good path through woods, then onto the moor. Out and back section was impossible to overtake on due to the runners coming toward you; I'd got past my 1st lady nemesis by that point but there was one tedious guy just ahead, so lost a bit of time. Burnt him off once we got to a wider bit and then the rest of the more technical downhill and the fields at the bottom to myself - perfect. Couldn't have done it any faster; definitely enjoyed it. One to repeat next year.

Still feeling my calf all the time but doesn't seem to change whether I run or not.

(rest day)

Mainly eating donuts. Also started painting my fence but it took ages; had to stop when it got too dark to see the fence.

Wednesday Aug 15 #

Running - Offroad (MH Fell Training) 1:35:23 [3] 14.45 km (6:36 / km) +452m 5:42 / km
ahr:125 max:147 shoes: Inov-8 Roclite 290

Mostly a jog, conditions looked like they are going to be a bit grim at the start but as usual once the rain had eased and we were of the ridge it was nice.
Picked up the pace from shining tor to cats tor at the end.

Still feeling my calf/achilles issue, I think it's improving but just very very slowly.
