Bracing walk up Beacon Batch (Mendips) with Lynne - 2.5 hours. Nice.

then off to Reading for a night away, a gig (watching), 5 pints & a curry. had to go home at 12:30am as the others are hardcore & went on to an after hours drinking den.

woken by them about 3am as they crashed back into the house. typical.

Indoor climbing at TCA with Liz, Nellie, Lynne, & Jenny.

Properly bang on it today, was on cracking form. that's what 2 days off results in? One move I did today was definitely UK 6a - just latched it, no way is that 5c. This means that technically I am as good as ever (2012). But can I turn it into route climbing?

How good's that? This good (March 2012). https://youtu.be/h_hJKcXqmfE (nb. Adam Ondra does 9a on Yosemite twice in one day; this is only 7a) - the UK 6a crux move is at 1:35 - 1:50. Took me 3 visits & about 8 goes to nail it. . . . . this route remains my only 7a (E4 6a in English money) & probably my only 6a move mid route. (think it looks easy? it's overhanging the whole way - not vertical.....)

the past 3-5 weeks of regular bouldering is paying off. Now burning the ladies off. Normally, I'm the crappest. But I weigh seemingly nothing, and my fingers are now strong. and I'm cutting loose and core strength is being used & improving. Yay.

Walking 2:16:00 [2] 11.4 km (11:56 / km) +217m 10:54 / km
(injured)

Very cold clear morning - brisk walk from home to Maes Knoll, up & over, and back over again as dropped my hat on summit, amazing views, pics on FB soon.

Sadly , possibly cos of 20 miles bike ride yesterday, my injury hurt / was uncomfortable for a lot of this walk, esp on gradual downhills..... caved in & booked Osteo for next week - and GP also, as this is getting ridiculous.

But - lovely to be out on such a stunning winter morning - sub zero temps.

Cycling 49:00 [4] 15.6 km (3:08 / km) +180m 2:58 / km
(injured)

Cycled (lovely day - very cold - Lowe Alpine furry gloves useless) to Horfield common (meet people there in pub) (Meat people?)

A bit epic getting there - thought it would take 40 mins so instead of being 10 minutes late (standard Phil practice), I was 20 mins late. Oops.

10 miles tho! Blimey. Tired. Had sugar in my coffee there ..... absolutely had to!

Cycled over Clifton Suspension Bridge twice today- amazing view & sunny winter day. Stunning.
1 PM

Cycling 52:00 [4] 16.98 km (3:04 / km) +158m 2:56 / km
(injured)

Cycle back from Horfield. Felt a lot easier. Went via Ashton court - wonderful sunny crisp day; deer park all out (or should that be "Dear" park? ;)

Put in a pretty hard effort up Hartcliffe way near the end, grim. I'm no cyclist, but 20 miles and 340m climb today is no picnic, so I consider I've "trained" today, people.

Note: just googled the Skirrid fell race - insane! in snow you'd need an ice axe for the last descent?

But I also note: "Free bear and chips for all competitors" - So if they get 100 runners, how will they manage for 100 bears to get to the pub? And what sort of bears? Hopefully not polar or grizzlies.

OK OK. Sorry.
