Cycle (Madeley to Birmingham) 3:30:00 [3] 35.0 mi (6:00 / mi)

10 miles of nice Shropshire and not so nice Staffordshire roads to Bilbrook. Then we got onto the Shropshire Union Canal (at the second attempt) and followed it, then the Staffordshire & Worcester, then the Birmingham Canal to the very end which is 20 miles of towpath in total. Good to ride all the places you see from the train, surface was poor at times needing a detour to Halfords to fix two punctures. Really good quiet and green ride. Back from Telford station at the end.

Running (Halesfield Ind. Estate) 55:00 [3]

Was a nice night for an Ironbridge run but wanted to locate some dirt jumps I'd (finally) discovered in Halesfield on YouTube. So a bit of a grim run trying to find them. Jumps were in the 3rd of 5 possible spots I'd identified. These are proper trails which people have put a lot of effort into but thankfully there's an easy line. Feel like I'm almost ready to start training properly again.

Running (Shifnal to home) 1:00:00 [3]

Over Lodge Hill, Evelith valley, and Kemberton. A mix of tracks, very nice footpaths, and non-existant footpaths. Not sure why it hasn't dawned on me before to do the drive-run-ride-drive technique to work and back before.

Orienteering (WCH Satnall Hills) 24:00 [3]

Been wanting to orienteer here since missing an event here earlier in the year. And it is a little jewel of an area. Got classic Cannock heathland, paths, rolling woods and contours tucked away. And some very decent climbs. Was good to run somewhere new though surprised I've never run on it before.

Running (Satnall Hills) 30:00 [3]

Just around afterwards with a short excursion across the road. Nice views.

Running (Coalbrookdale run) 1:15:00 [3]

Heading on some new paths in the evening sun. Went down a valley with footpath and railway and no cars which was bliss. Then discovered a cool path up a valley though it fizzled out heading up east. Another cool path and some houses with great views along the top. Back across the railway and through the holly woods and Rough Park. Required a lot of effort at the start.
