Cycle 50:00 [3] 18.4 km (2:43 / km) +200m 2:35 / km

Wanted an exploratory north Bristol ride so went to Brentry via Southmead Road/Pen Park Rd. Quite nice actually! Found some nice green spaces on the ridge :-) Back to the roundabout and over the and round the traffic lights up past Westbury, extended it round the Downs for a little more.

Hadn't planned on going out due to being a bit soft and trying to shift this cough but couldn't resist.

Running (Ashton Court Parkrun) 17:20 [4] 5.0 km (3:28 / km) +90m 3:11 / km

Rolled down with Abi. Did a bit of warm up and had some drink. Set off medium-fast but just wanted a bit of clear space before settling into a little pack of those Clevedon (or GWR) runners. Up the hill though they never came and I pushed on along the top. Pushed on on the way back too getting further ahead. Think I did well downhill but hard to tell. Tried not to loose pace on the final bit.

Was definitely the hardest I've pushed during it and finished a decent amount ahead of 2nd place. I forgot my barcode though so 1720 (PB) was our guesstimate.

Did feel fast though.

Maybe could have pushed just slightly harder on the way up to the top but was definitely scared of overdoing it. And a bit harder on the final bit too.

Commute (To/from Parkrun) 25:00 [3]

8 PM

Running (Evening run) 35:00 [3] 6.5 km (5:23 / km) +60m 5:09 / km

Down Jacob's Wells Road, round the harbourside, back over the M-Shed bridge, past Watershed and up Park Street, then MVB steps to Woodland Road and over Tyndall Avenue to home. Nice and steady but did speed up a little along the south side of the river.

Running (Leigh Woods run) 45:00 [3] 5.0 km (9:00 / km)

From the gate, up and back. Not been running in Leigh Woods for a while. Was nice. Took a few attempts to find the top of the ridge of death descended and came up the norther rocky gully. Didn't feel that great, possibly due to the cough. Classically got dis-orientated on the way back out but made it!

Commute (To/from Leigh Woods) 15:00 [3]

Running (Bristol & West) 19:30 [4]

Round the back. Nice session 6min, 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 45s, 45s. Not ever so fast but good. Really consistant. Was a bit ahead of Will Russell all night, Owain could just about be seen in the distance. Wet underfoot!

Commute (To/from Coombe Dingle) 19:00 [3]

Wednesday Apr 2, 2014 #

Running (Tempo) 20:00 [4] 5.45 km (3:40 / km) +60m 3:29 / km

I needed a run and John had had a very slow one earlier with Jinji so pinned it round the Downs triangle together to get ourselves moving. Decent pace, didn't feel ever so fast at the start but lightened up.

Running (UBOC Monday Night Run) 50:00 [3] 9.8 km (5:06 / km) +160m 4:43 / km

A proper run with Matt, Mark and Tim. Round the wiggly perimeter of the Downs then down the goat gully (raining) popping out on the Portway opposite Chris Palmer and whoever he was running with. Along the Portway and up the Bridge Valley road steps towards Clifton. Mark was being a bit soft so we didn't go directly up to the observatory. Checked out the new climbing frames then through Cliftonwood to Brandon Hill and eventually the Green Man.
