IW. Went for sleeveless today, nearly regretted it but was grand once warmed up.

HFW. Taking it nice and easy (on what may the last dry evening for a while) but don't know how I was quite so slow - though there was headwind and I stopped to read the sign on the hydro information board (before it gets vandalised).

Went back down the road we drove in to warm up but found myself in the competition area, just when I needed to pee. Ooops.

Kingswood, Welsh League.
Amazingly dry and dusty and just about the right balance as the vegetation wasn't too high but the bluebells were looking amazing. Parts of this were lovely and other bits were a bit too roady, but overall it was enjoyable. Feet (especially the ankle) didn't like the hard surfaces but was moving okay it not at race pace (that didn't appear to be showing up today). No major errors but a couple of stupid little bits, but probably less than 2 minutes all in. Ben was flying, don't think I could have got close to his time even if I was running hard.

O training on Canop Ponds courtesy of Mark2. Easy trot around a simple aiming off exercise and then slightly faster around an attackpoint one. Bottom of calfs tender from Thursday and generally not at all bouncy. The sun at last put an appearance in. Saw a mummy and a baby boar.

Collecting controls. Map really is very dodgy in places and already needs updating. Saw two more groups of boar. Sun still out.

Around the Red mountain biking route with MarkP and ClareD. Struggling on the climbs and getting shaken on the rutted and rooted descents. Extension bit to the north was the best bit.
IW. I like the lack of rain but a bit of warmth wouldn't go amiss either.

HFW. Gentle head wind all the way, had to work hard for this.
First time sport climbing, at the Pinnacle in TW (which is a left over crag from a quarry just down the road). The climbing bit was grand (think we did a 6A and a 6C) but only having two harnesses between four of us meant a lot of waiting (and for the first time this year the midges were out).
At Spot with a few of the gang. Lots of new routes, many of which I liked. Plenty to work on and was feeling pretty good considering the break.

IW. Doodling along, surprised that I was reasonably fast, must be the altitude training.

HFW. Numpty road biker - slowly caught him, got in front when he didn't take a shortcut, speeded up so he wasn't behind me, only for him to speed up, pass me, and then slow down again. Also some sort or RTA in Tong so had to take the back streets to avoid it.
