Tim Tett's tourist-friendly Malham fell race, alarming everyone out for an easy walk at malham cove and gordale scar. Ran with Alistair P. but he was much better over anything technical and i never quite closed the gap after climbing the waterfall. We dropped Tim though and thats what matters :-D felt like a nice easy cruise for the first half with the wind behind us, then a long grind homewards. So much fun.

From Malham Tarn, recce of tomorrow's race route with Richard and Simon M. really nice tourist-friendly route, testing my nerve/ fear of heights a bit dropping down through the limestone into malham cove and climbing up the waterfall at goredale scar.

had some quiz answers to get in malham village so ran back down there, stopped for coffee then back up via malham cove and a few faffy detours. no map and lost confidence in my route choice near the end, turned and came back a way id been before to be safe. tourist pace all the way.

Guisborough Woods race. Ive not run when its been this course, the somewhat brutal 3 laps up, along, down, getting muddier each time. Made life interesting by being part of the train who ran the wrong way on lap 1 (the marker had been moved, i thought id not known the course well enough...) and we took some extra distance and climb. Actually made it more fun having to do some overtaking instead of just being in the same long string of people and i still won the max amount of wine possible. So thats okay :-) feeling a bit lazy, only really did what i needed to, but still working to carry speed off the top of all the hills.
