Running tempo (Wormald Green and back) 27:41 [3] 7.2 km (3:51 / km) +70m 3:40 / km

From home home to the top of Wormald Green and back.

Probably shouldn't have gone hard after doing a session and a race in the last two days but hadn't done this run in years and needed to make sure I beat my PB from 4+ years ago...

In my training diary in 2009 (after a 28.20 time) I wrote "sub-28 target by tour". The tour being Halden. Four and a bit years later I have finally hit that target! But still only equaled my pb for the way up (14.20) from later that year...

Fell Race (Crook Peak Cake Race) 20:17 [3] 4.8 km (4:14 / km) +200m 3:30 / km

Everyone bailed on me but there was good BOK crowd there as well as Ben G and lots of Bristol & West guys.

Really could do with some more organisation this race. I just managed to find the start but at least one guy didn't (which isn't surprising in the slightest).

Started off up the gentle hill, Ben and the fast looking guy in a hat were in a line with me but gradually pulled away to the top of the first. Neil M directed us down through the crag off the top. Steady down and along the ridge. The person coughing behind was getting further away so was fairly relaxed until the climb up Wavering Down when it turned out there was actually a guy between the coughing and me who'd sneaked up behind. Upped the pace to keep ahead but then started descending from one peak too soon, luckily got shouted back on course by Ben but had to cut through the long grass and overtook on a little descent.

Got to the final hill and managed to find the finish after being pointed back on course again. Was another one of those races where you had to shout your number out as you crossed the line which was written upside down on the back of your hand...

+2min on the record. Such a great course for smashing if you're fit. Bristol & West guy second.

Running (Bristol & West) 20:00 [3] 6.0 km (3:20 / km) +20m 3:17 / km

5*(800m [2mins jog] 400m [90s]) round the full field.

6k so quite a long session. Started of keeping it steady well then nicely ramped up to racing Torran at the end. Lacking a bit of speed for the finish.

Raced Steve Francis (on his bike) up Blackboy Hill street then bit of an effort across the Downs. Steady down and steady up the climb taking the woods route back.
