Running (Staveley) 44:00 [3] 9.1 km (4:50 / km) +30m 4:45 / km

River run with Jack and Matt.
4 PM

Running warm up/down 15:00 [3]

Slight right knee pain warming-up. Felt it a bit yesterday. Was fine in the race.

Fell Race race (Grasmere Guides) 15:33 [3] 2.0 km (7:47 / km) +280m 4:34 / km

Field was annoyingly still strong despite the rain. Got in a good position out of the field and just tried to find a sustainable pace. Most of the climb behind Tom Simpson (getting away) until JW came past going fast on the last part of the path. A few more seconds lost up the craggy steep bit at the end. 10th at the top. The descent was not good. Tom and Jack were away. Lots of falling over and had to look after my foot a bit. John Helm got close at the bridge but I stayed ahead in the fields and went for a strong run-in. 10th at the finish.

Running warm up/down 7:00 [3]

4 PM

Running warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Fell Race (Malham Show) 17:30 [3] 3.7 km (4:44 / km) +190m 3:46 / km

Weaker field than last year; no Jack Wood, James Hall or Ted Mason. There was a fairly fast guy from Leeds on the way up though he disappeared on the way down. I pushed pretty well across the fields to the finish. 20s down on Jack's time from last year.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3]

5 PM


Beautiful drive over from Malham to Settle.

Somehow sprained the inside of my left foot. Not sure how but traversing to the left makes it hurt.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [3]

Fell Race (Ragleth) 26:37 [3] 4.5 km (5:55 / km) +460m 3:55 / km

Dan Connelly showed up for the first time since Rodney's Pillar. Nice steady start, quite a few new faces around, Dan, me and Matt Yapp over the top.

Overtook Dan for a bit on the descent to the col and followed up the track. Closed in on the 'dogboard shin descent' then tried an overtake just after the stream, got shutdown but we went down at a good pace.

Found things slow up Callow Hollow. Went for numerous moves but he was up for a proper man-on-man battle and none came off. Slightly dubious lines over the top of the hill. My legs couldn't handle the down and he got 20s on me. Jack Agnew was never far behind and got close on the path but I had enough to stay ahead.

Running warm up/down 8:00 [3]

Bouldering 50:00 [3]

Running (Ragleth race recce) 40:00 [3] 6.4 km (6:15 / km) +475m 4:34 / km

Had a bit of novelty rain. In Shropshire so went for a gentle run round Wednesday's route pausing on the climbs. Had a rest in a nice wild col looking out across the Mynd with low cloud above, atmospheric. Some sprints at the end and got spotted by Colin Lancaster.
