Seem to have recovered OK after the weekend; still a bit sore in the quads, but injuries and niggles no worse and even a little better? Go figure.
Only two days until the Big Walk, which I am running with a couple of colleagues. It's a 50mile route around the Peak District, which will be a long tough day out (in the rain). We're raising money for the Sheffield Scanner - an MRI scanner that will be used for treatment and research and will be the only one in the region, so will make a big difference to lots of people. Please consider supporting us on this challenge - it will really help with motivation on the day! https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/three-o-wan...

V3K. Great to be back after two years and just such a good feeling to be able to run competitively on a route like this again.
A great route and pretty good conditions in spite of the thick mist that clung to the summits for most of the day. I had to work hard for the win, particularly as a rogue marshal sent the entire field behind me on a shortcut off Glyder Fach.
I struggled more on Crib Gogh than last time as it was a lot wetter and greasier, but I survived the third main climb up from Ogwyn better this time around and had plenty of run left in my legs once up on the Carneddau plateau. The descent to Hendre Hall went on forever and I was very glad not to be in a race for the line by then.
This is a fantastic event and the it must be the most improbable Skyrace in the calendar. A hippy party venue in an old stables for the race HQ and afterparty, organic quinoa in the race packs, a vegan banquet into the evening on race day and lots of vegan chocolate for the prizes. It manages to be low key, chilled out and slick at the same time, which is no mean feat. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!
