Changed the route while out running and headed for Fa and the plateau rather than over to Crux. Not the best day, misty, windy and cool, still in short and a T though. Feeling good after a few days off but the nerves in the ankle still complained on the downhills.

IW. Tyre flat so pumped it up, lasted a mile, pumped it up again and hoped for the best. It worked, got the rest of the way in to work without drama.

HFW. Looked wet out when leaving but thankfully the rain had stopped. Tyre flat again so pumped it up and hoped for the best, got nearly half way before having to start over. Then only made a mile, then another mile, and another, the gave up and changed the tube. Turned out to be a dodgy patch from a previous puncture that was leaking. Hopefully the new tube will stay up.
Too late to make the MDC run but an easy few days are no bad thing as the past few weeks have been quite hard.

IW. Not a good start to find out I had a puncture. Pumped it up and hoped for the best. So annoyed about the wheel that I forgot to be concerned about not having enough layers on, turned out really warm and a t-shirt and jacket was plenty. Taking it very easy as right calf a little tight - maybe connected to the ankle nerve pain?

HFW. Not in a good mood, cold, wet, hungry, tyre had gone down and late. Felt better by the time I got home (no longer cold or wet but more hungry and late).

Round the Black Mountains with MarkP, Lucy and Nicky doing some MM type training. Really enjoyable day out, felt more like a fun social run than anything else - even stopped for a picnic. Glad of the slow pace as the past few days have been hard on my legs. Nerves in my ankle were grand for about 2.5 hours but then were really painful towards the end.
