He has a training blog and some of his sessions are mad! He runs across the Purbeck hills at the same pace I doa parkrun but also thinks nothing of doing 26 times 1 mile reps of a field for pacing practice! Very pleased for the guy and hope there is even more to come.
Having to double post due to Android/Firefox writing everything backwards if I press a return! Coledale results out tonight. I was 69th overall, which means I lost at least 50 places from the top of Grisedale Pike. FFS! Underlines just what a shit descender I am!!! Hey ho, need to move somewhere I can train on the righ terrain I guess!
Almost as enjoyable as the race was the drive back on a fast windy road with no kids in the back, a couple of stops to watch the sunset across Windermere and the Langdale Pikes then a delicious meal of pie and chips, with the pie from a fantastic pie shop in Grange over sands, washed down with a two pint takeaway fresh from the Cartmel brewery, followed by the world famous Cartmel sticky toffee pudding! Knackered and stuffed, but sometimes life is sweet!
