Laura - enjoyed the report. Never tried a fell run myself - at the moment, the hill outside West Kirby is enough to deal with (whichever side you approach it from). 1800 feet climbing is getting on for 3x the amount we did in our hill reps session a week last Tuesday and I thought that was bad enough.

The schools X-C at Arrowe Park was indeed pretty sodden. Was marshalling at one of the highest points on the course but press your foot into the ground and you brought up lots of water....

4.3K this evening - thought it would be asking a bit much to try to get a brisk run out of this but surprisingly there was a bit of bounce in the legs & without overexerting myself, still got round in 16:10 (about 6:05 per mile pace). Is it the extra mileage, or the Tuesday group quality sessions?
Intended 10 miler tomorrow morning - longest run I'll have done since 1989!

What: 13 miles long run, along a local canal path this afternoon/evening.

Why: 'cos I do 'em on Saturdays not Sundays. Plus it's my birthday today & I wanted to get my long run in, although I had to wait until after my youngest son's birthday party had finished!!!!!

Last hard day: Wednesday's hill reps with my Club.

Last rest day: Friday's day orffff.

Did first 40 min 10K in gym. Doesn't compare with you lot so will go back to the Darkside and hide. Not much good at blowing own trumpet, suggestions welcome ;-)

I always find it helps if you can find someone to blow your trumpet for you ;-)
