Chevin Fell race - 6th!
Hoping to run the Ogden midsummer madness race today, but car being in garage meant relying on public transport, so Otley was much easier. Big P&B turnout which was nice to see. Even this lunchtime I was thinking I wouldn't be able to race - postdrome phase of migraine combined with not having had lunch resulted in me wondering if I was even safe to cycle.
Set out quickly in this, its just up once and down once, I've done enough chevin reps to know what pace I should run at, especially with the steps getting so steep. I let people get ahead of me, but never went easy or too deep, reassuring to reovertake people near the end of the up, and then again on the flat immediately after. I was right behind Mitch here at the summit and near the start of the descent and managed to get ahead and get a nice gap on the rocky descent. Fully blazing it from here I was so concerned about the gap I had behind, it appeared that it was huge but on the last flat I saw Mitch wasn't far behind, and then on the final stretch he was getting closer and closer. I had to try to sprint to keep him at bay and managed to stay ahead by 3s, sneaking under 20 minutes. Strava reckoned I got my 1km pb (2:45) and 1 mile pb (4:46).
Really pleased to feel like I could actually race, and not as unfit as what parkrun indicated.

Taking this afternoon off work as the time swap from working v. late last wednesday. Lovely sunny and warm weather. After the steep climb out of Garsdale station, it was off road on the pennine bridleway until (imo) the best road to cycle on in Yorkshire (Cam High Road roman road south of dodd fell). Then a 50km easy way back to Ilkley through along the valley floor. 70km is quite big as I rediscovered, and I was quite tired by the end. R knee quite sore inside by the end, but has been okay since. Really nice to get out.
