Running (mostly off-road) (Easy) 1:49:08  16.26 km (6:43 / km) +1305m 4:47 / km
Around legs 1 and 4 with Chris and his mate, Hannah and Mark. An oddly still morning, ground conditions weren't nearly as bad as expected after the recent weather (although some lovely stream paths). Pretty straightforward up, around, and down routes. Legs were pretty decent, although a bit rusty on the descending, and felt good on the steep stuff. Nice morning out!
Running (mostly off-road) tempo 1:10:52  18.69 km (3:47 / km) +284m 3:31 / km
20' WU ; 30' tempo ; 20' WD
Wanted somewhere as flat as possible, so went to Thirlmere as suggested and met Chris for this tempo down the west side road. It's closed due to works = a personal track! One of the wettest days I can remember, but enjoyed it thoroughly!
Felt decent during the warm-up. Hopped over what we thought would be the only big wire fence until the other end of the lake before starting the tempo, but ended up coming across another one about 8mins into the tempo so had to do a couple of turns in total. Felt pretty good during the tempo, didn't feel like I was breathing fully until about 10-15mins to go, and managed a decent consistent pace throughout I think. Very good flat road, with just some big swimming pools added to the surface, was so fun! Really good to run with Chris too, hopefully can do it more often.
(Not sure re the elevation on this - the WU and WD routes to and from the lake road were undulating but not 284 metres worth I don't feel! My watch is a bit ill I think, the run came up with 1800m on Strava...)
