Cardiologist appointment. He was running late and I had time pressure, so only got 10 minutes, but it was worthwhile. He knows what the Dragon's Back is and asked 'do you have any targets' - so not a 'just don't run to be safe' type.

General heart state is due to it being trained. However there are a couple of things (that I don't understand) that aren't in line with a trained heart. As such we need to work out if this is due to the training, or something pathological.

To find this out I need to undergo a period of 6 months detraining, then re-test to see if my heart shows signs of reversion (so caused by training), or if it doesn't (pathological)
I knew this was coming but good to know. 6 months is a while but happy to invest it for (hopefully) n years of running in the future. It's also good to know that I'm not going to keel over and die and leave a family behind, something fairly close to home with DazH 10 years ago. If it is pathological and permanent reduced exertion is required then so be it - that beats karking it.

So the aim now is to keep busy and not waste 6 months watching Sopranos clips on youtube and putting on excess weight. Come January I want to be able to phase in training quite easily. I can still run 10ish miles a week at low intensity. I need to confirm exactly what I can do around biking/walking/strength work. I'm actually looking forward to stepping out of running for a bit for a refresh.

Ideas for things to work on/do (listing these for some accountability) so I can #BarberBackBetter (#BuildBackbarber?) are:

- Sort out knees/glutes and build my running strength.
- Sort out slight GI issues (nowhere near as bad as they were but still a bit unpredictable).
- Walking. Plenty of it to maintain some level of fitness. May be a good opportunity to work on an ML qualification.
- Try and dust of my trad climbing 'skills' from my teens, and improve my scrambling etc. Don't want to go into an indoor wall though really!
- Walk orienteering - technical training for a local JK23.
- Move house
- Race marshalling
- Resurrect Tebay fell race?
- Become next PM

Chapelfell Top race.
Great little race. To the summit and back, first 3rd of the acsent fast track, then into rough stuff with plenty of mystery lines to the summit. Then return.

I felt pretty tired and rubbish and finished nowhere but was loving it. If this is my last race for a while it was a good one to go out on

Running - Trail 24:51 intensity: (18:51 @2) + (6:00 @3) 4.53 km (5:29 / km) +181m 4:34 / km
