J8 - I haven't entered Lakeland 50 - too "runnable" for my liking

my Lakes-focus for next year is to train over the winter to be "BG-fit" by about April/May, then wait for a decent weather-window and attempt on short notice with skeleton/no support - whatever happens I will use my fitness to have a decent stab at the Lakeland Classic series (and maybe OCT again)

mort/CC - Good Luck getting your car over Edale Cross and down Jacob's Ladder!

if this forecast transpires, I will be one happy bunny:


Variable, often large amounts of cloud, but mostly dry. Some patchy drizzle/hill fog possible at first, especially over eastern areas, but bright or sunny intervals likely to develop through the day. Winds moderate easterly."

got up early - looked at rain - extra couple hours sleep, then listened to Danny Baker on radio...
rain stopped! off out to Lyme Park - 3 hours of hilly fun - even saw motorbikes trialling on side of Sponds Hill - usual amazing views from Dale Top and Black Rocks

somebody's had a bet on me on Fetch to do sub-14:30 on BS - it's a lock!

I'm now tapering down to BS, so about 3 hours pottering around Lyme Park area on Saturday, then maybe a bit on the Sandstone Trail next midweek...

ditto - that stony track is horrible, especially in the dark, so worth it to go other way

Nick - I also have tried that moortop route and I reckon it loses me about 5 mins - for those better at runnable stuff (i.e. almost everybody) it'd probably only be 2-3mins slower and you save putting the early damage into your legs from the steep down/up - it would confuse the CP marshals though!

my run went really well on Sunday - perfect weather, and I covered about 26M in under 6 hours, so about 13min-miling which bodes very well for my assault on a sub-14:30

I'll be back off hols tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday out-n-backing a stretch of BS from Blinder House (where the route crosses the A515 nr Chelmorton) probably get as far as Brand Top one way, and past Miller's Dale as far as Wheston t'other - looking at 7-8hrs out

thinking I might turn out, as not many opportunities left for summer evening races

The only Floyd album I still listen to is Wish You Were Here, although I do have Relics and listen to a lot of their very early stuff on youtube

Sabs' Paranoid album has become my fave of theirs over the years, but if you'd asked me 30 years ago I'd've said it was one of their weaker ones
