Cheers baz. Not sure how many laps they do. From what I know they ride for 50 mins then they get a last 5 laps signal. The leaders in both races broke away well before the 5 laps though. Nice parkrun. I always find that point when you have to decide to push on and gamble on your time or stay as you are (knowing you will get a decent time) interesting. I call it the deal or no deal moment.
Carter cycling wil help your firness a lot (if not your bank balance).
Not ran all weekend as I have felt shocking, managed to finsih my weekend of nights but did see if there were any beds on HDU as I am sure I had man flu. Kept getting hot flushes etc
Going to try and get out thie evening as I feel a lot better today
Didn't do parkrun on Saturday, felt tired after work so went to acclerete and bought some new fell/off roaders. Sunday was a slow run after work.
Last night was a lovely run in the peaks to try the new trainers out. Set off from Curber Cap up onto white edge then down onto white edge moor. From there to the lodge and then onto Grouse Inn. Through the woods at the back of the pub and up onto Froggatt and Curber Edges back to the car park. Nice run that can be extended to include padley gorge etc.
No running today but into town for the cycling. Wanting to get some photography practice ready for the tour next year. (Voluntering as a marshall for one of the two days and got an email on Monday saying details will be sent soon - excited about it even now with just under a year to go)
Managed to get out for a very hot and sweaty 4 miles nearly all off road, legs ached a little at first probally from tuesdays run. Got into a rythm of steadily faster miles until just over 3.5 miles when the path I was following along side a field of rape seed became unrunable due to the height of the rape seed. Legs a bit scratched but can't complain as it is not a reconigsed path but one that most of the year is used by dog walkers etc.
Still deciding about parkrun in morning as I don't want to over do it at this stage.
Now trying to follow the ashes and the tour at the same time but everytime flick over to the tour the aussies loose another wicket. Good times to be a British Sports fan (apart from footie)
Some good training going on making me feel rather lazy as I havn't ran since Tuesday, was planning on running yesterday but getting up later than planned after nights, going to watch the youngest in a play at school and then having to much to eat when we got back stopped that. Hopefully get out for a run this afternoon after taking the middle child back to leeds.
Giro might be at parkrun in the morning depending on how I feel after work.
ET I am planning on going to the cycle racing in town on wednesday with the camera to get some practice in before Le Tour next year. I was always told that when doing hills reps to keep going for a bit over the top of the hill so that you don't get into a mindset of stopping/slowing at the top of the hill.
Enjoy your run Carter sounds like a great route.
Crowden Horseshoe fell race on Saturday a great race that I would be going to if I wasn't on nights (11am start for race is to late especially after first night shift) but a really good route, challanging and tecnicall in places with a mad descent near the end http://fellrunner.org.uk/races.php?id=2727
