slept:4.0 shoes: inov8 Mudclaw300 Dayglo/Blk

Still not right - and now showing in poor running. At the back most of the time. Not collapsing probably should be classed as a success.

Hope to be feeling better soon - sufficiently drained between leaving work and getting home that could happily have gone straight to bed instead.

S&C 5:00 [3]

Still not good but have at least eaten a bit more today.

Running 59:36 [3] 10.13 km (5:53 / km) +140m 5:30 / km
slept:4.0 weight:71.8kg shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 19

Bad night rolled into a bad day, and feeling pretty miserable. In hindsight, getting hit by a car instead might not have been so bad.

Little incentive to go anywhere so just stuck on the roads in Gaer.

Running - off road race (Llanbedr-Blaenavon) 2:47:10 [5] 24.45 km (6:50 / km) +1370m 5:20 / km
slept:5.0 weight:73kg shoes: inov8 Mudclaw300 Blk/Gn1

Second go at this race. Weather nearly as goodbas last year - hot, dry, but more wind today and coming from the east.

Generally going better and over 12 mins quicker than last year but not totally pleased. Blew up further along Crug Mawr this time - i think due to fighting headwind and having low density makes me more affected by it than many? Remainder of race was a struggle.

Similar headwind problems going up Sugar Loaf and most of it was a walk. Hurting for road through Abergavenny and nearly got run over (less than 1 inch away...) because a total wanker of a driver in a queue of traffic did not bother to check if the road was clear in front of him before pulling away from a stand...

Blorenge was tough, but better progress on bottom half and steady on the fell. Wrecked for the top and only just about hanging on to fet to the finish. Well beaten by Ben which isn't where I wanted to be on a net uphill race.

At least ahead of Jules, John Aggleton, Gary and Martyn.

Had a fairly bad mood swing once home so tonight may not be much fun.

6 PM

Bouldering 45:00 [3]

Bouldering with Marcus, Ben and Enid. Taking it a bit easier as not wanting to cause damage before long race tomorrow.

Easy routes much harder, but hard routes easier and got further on several of the overhangs. Seem to be struggling to pull vertically up, but better at angle.

Thursday Mar 23 #

6 PM

Running - off road (MDC) 1:14:46 [3] 7.81 km (9:34 / km) +425m 7:32 / km
slept:5.5 shoes: inov8 Mudclaw300 Dayglo/Blk

MDC "fartlek" session in Gwaelod woods, taking it in turns to lead - but pace was generally pretty consistent just constant up/down. Not good for me as weak ankles wouldn't survive an awkward landing on root/stone so very steady watching very carefully. Except when I was leading where I picked routes around the rough and showed the others how to run up a hill.

Really steep and slippery climb that I could only just manage to get up at second attempt. Mentally still not recovered from last year yet and this didn't do me any good - gave a proper beasting straight up to gate twice as a punishment. Felt much better for it.

Probably worst for the ankle was getting down the wet rocky track to the road on way back. It's fine to run on most of the time just hard work when there are sprain hazards at almost every step.
8 PM

S&C 20 [3]

3 pull-ups, with witnesses this time. Goal reached - well ahead of the deadline.
