Road Running race (10k) 41:15 [5] 10.0 km (4:08 / km)
slept:6.5 shoes: Gym Trainers

Newham Classic 10k. A local race for me, this started in Stratford and then headed onto the Greenway - then back into Stratford, along to West Ham Park and back around. I knew that the ramp up to the Greenway at 2.5km would be thin, so got off to a quick start and there were no queues. On coming back down, there was quite a big queue going up which I was glad to have missed. I think if the course had been run in reverse this would have been avoided. A great race overall though and I hope that future years will get more access to the Olympic Park area.

36 seconds off my PB and 75s off my 40-minute season target.
(N.B. My official chip time was 41:41 and my race time was 41:21 - not sure why the chip time is higher than the race time or higher than my GPS time.)

Cycling long 5:02:00 [3] 75.5 km (4:00 / km) +530m 3:52 / km
shoes: New Brown Leisure Shoes

Cycle from London (Hackney) to Cuckfield (near Haywards Heath) with Anna. Followed the London-Brighton route from Clapham to Turner's Hill, deviating to go through Tooting Common and Outwood. Six hills, the one at the very end was the most painful! I did struggle a little bit on my mountain bike. Time includes stops, and a 25 minute break at the half-way point. Moving time was 3h 37.

Cycling warm up/down 11:00 [1] 4.5 km (2:27 / km)

Cuckfield to Haywards Heath. Downhill the entire way - lovely.

Cycling warm up/down 23:10 [4] 5.9 km (3:56 / km) +100m 3:37 / km

From East Croydon to Gipsy Hill - via Crystal Palace - a real killer climb! Time includes various pauses for breath.

Cycling 55:30 [3] 16.6 km (3:21 / km)

Gipsy Hill to Hackney, via Dulwich, Denmark Hill, Elephant & Castle and London Bridge. Mainly following the well-waymarked London Cycle Route 23, as far as Elephant & Castle.

Cycling 2:51:00 [2] 29.3 km (5:50 / km) +270m 5:35 / km

On a steel bike with two working gears! From Lasswade, up the steep hill to Bonnyrigg, then along the Penicuik to Dalkeith cycle path, as far as Penicuik, then back along to Roslin Glen, where I turned off and into the glen, walked the bike up to the castle, and then cycled across the Bilston Glen Viaduct and back to Lasswade. Numerous short stops to write down various notes for OSM mapping, moving time was nearly an hour less.
