I went to Barcelona a few years ago for a music festival. Lovely place. Always intended to go back regularly, but haven't quite got round to it yet.
Sounds like everyone is taking it fairly easy at the moment.
As part of my endeavour to improve my running technique, I bought a metronome. Set it to 165: I thought the increase from my normal ~160 cadence would be barely noticeable, but it was awful. I'm not much of a dancer and my timing is terrible, so it required all my concentration to try to keep in time. Absolutely exhausting and my hip started playing up so I sacked it off after about 3 miles and headed home at my 160 lope.
Anyway, my left hip is still not quite right (but the right one is completely fine ), so I've got the bike out and made the most of the sunshine over the last couple of days. Even tried a few hill reps this morning. Went at them flat out and managed 4*90s until the legs said no more. Perhaps a different pacing strategy (or a shallower hill) will be required next time.
Thanks for all the race suggestions - I've still not got my diary out to make a plan. first proper effort will be cotswold Hilly 100 relay on 18th May. Just scraped into the clubs a-team, though I think I'm probably the weakest in there.
Kenilworth May Day 10k is a very hill cross country type race that will make ideal prep for hilly, provided I'm fit by then. It's not a particularly competitive event (it's where my sole team prize was gained) but good fun for a bank holiday.
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, but don't forget your sun cream.
