Fell Race race (Viking Chase) 1:07:28 [3] 12.62 km (5:21 / km) +375m 4:39 / km

Nice and fun. Four hills on the way out, traverse all the way back.

In the mix at the top of the first, had to hold back on the descent because of the back and a couple got ahead. A Knavesmire guy came up from behind and we were a group of four at the top of the second.

Got left by the two Knavesmire guys with topless-guy; him getting away on the descents and me catching up on the uphills. Quite a lot of flat though where we were even.

Got to the far end drinks point in fourth and allowed another Knavesmire to come past. Tough little hill before starting the traverse through the woods where I didn't have much to give. Glimpsed topless-guy ahead at one point but by the time we got to the open he was even further ahead.

It was doable though so I put some effort in and caught him with about 800m to go. Bit of racing and then put the boot in on the little incline into the finish.

Walking (Severn Trent Mtn Challeng) 5:00:00 [3] 25.0 mi (12:00 / mi)

Will log five hours not the ten we took as only walking.

Hope, Castleton, Cave Dale, Windy Knoll, Speedwell Cavern, Broken Road, Hollins Cross, Mam Tor, Rushup Edge, Chop Gate, Edale, Hollins Cross, Lose Hill, Killhorse Bridge, Hope Brink, Win Hill, Thornhill Carrs, Killhorse Bridge, Hope

Put a cheeky few efforts in here and there. Not too tired, a little knee pain on the sides towards the end, feet took a bit of a beating.

Back still dodgy. Slowly trying to become an athlete again. Scared of shin-splints if I ever do intervals on the road again, not sure if track/grass will be okay if I go back to Birchfield (not fit enough anyway right now).

Won't have much endurance for Dolomites but my legs are as strong as they have ever been. Followed by OO-Cup to remind me how to orienteer.

Will do some short fell races in August I think and try and do well.

If I had some injury-free time and consistent training Estonia and Latvia would have been good terrain for me but oh well.

Will just see how this summer goes.

Running (Broadway) 32:00 [3] 6.5 km (4:55 / km) +230m 4:11 / km

Legs a bit slow and lungs underpowered, seriously need some intervals.

Commute (Finham to STC) 20:00 [3]

6 PM

Cycle (Cov to home) 58:16 [3] 31.0 km (1:53 / km) +240m 1:49 / km

Monstered the first bit from Coventry to the edge of Birmingham. Was going to focus on posture for the bit through town to home but then I realised sub-60 absolute time might be possible so started pushing again. In the end was 30s late :-( should have realised sooner, but at least I cycled home faster than I drove in
