Justs tuck at the commutes. Feeling pretty good so no point pushing it too much with Borrowdale on the horizon and a bit of sharper racing planned this weekend.

Sheffield Beer Mile.

Drinking out of a bottle never easy but paced it OK. 5th to start running, into 2nd after the second bottle then on my own, a way behind Andy Norman (5:37) but comfortably first local.

Running bit was very comfy (never really dipped below 3:30min/km) - save a few gassy moments on the first bend. Reckon I can try and push the pace next time - although practise at quick drinking from bottles would be required! Fancy a chunder mile at some point though, maybe a cheeky trip to the Beer Mile world champs in London on Sunday?

Good evening's entertainment though, and the alcohol soon hit. Glad of a lift home even if it did impact upon my mileage.

Lost Lad and Ladybower. Offered lifts out to make sure I went out so had Tamsin for (distant) company up to Lost Lad and Megan for the entirety. Feeling a bit heavy in the legs but put a bit of effort through them, although I thought not as much as my Hr suggests - I shall blame a headwind as well. Strava put Megan 6s ahead of me on a segment despite me leading all the way up it...

The main news is that, after a fairly strong start then a dip, my TdF fantasy team 'Edvald Boasson-Hardon' had a storming finish to Le Tour (mainly courtesy of Jarlinson Pantano) to narrowly overhaul Jones and Crickmore. Still a way off Nixon mind - backing Quintana over Froome no the best idea.
5 PM

Running - Road and Trail 20:35 3.94 km (5:14 / km) +81m 4:44 / km

Still a bit tired but had a power nap before heading out to do a pyramid around Grave park, trying out some new lighter shoes I found cheap in Decathlon.
1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 with 1/1.5min recs. Undulating. Ground it out. Home via a bit of exploring.

Just this as shattered from yesterday's day out, beers and lack of sleep

Holme Moss, 4th. Winner: Morgz (2:37)
Wasn't feeling good enough to go with the early pace of Morgz, Andy and Joe so sat comfortably with the second group. Cruised off the front down to Croden, lost the gap muffing up the Laddow rocks line, before opening it up larger up to Black Hill. Glad I had a good gap and no racing at the end as wasn't up for more than a cruise in. Was waiting for Joe or (more likely) Swifty to pop (MOrgz left them to it the 2nd time at Holme Moss but credit to Andy for attacking up to Laddow!) but it didn't happen. Nice day out and team prize also.

Shall need to feel fresher before Borrowdale or Gable and Dale Head will do for me. Basic strength and fitness fair though.
