East Kinder from Snake Inn with Dan and Tom. Feeling tired and a bit hungry despite sleeping and eating OK. Got up to seal stones OK, dan moving well on way back from Crookestone. Incorrect 3min crossing, drifted too far right, need to check from the north.

Hfw. Muggy and a bit dark under the trees. Feel like I've missed out on summer this year. Hopefully September will be nice.
Foolishly thought I'd be able to hit it harder this week, but will take a bit of build up.

'Woodhead closed' signs - pretty sure I could drive to Crowden but decided I might as well use the opportunity to run there to warm up, and then there'd be no excuse other than to run back.
Along the road for a bit, then onto the ressers and Pennine Way.

Crowden Horsehoe (3rd ) Derbyshire Champs (2nd).
Harry Holmes shot off from the start, I climbed OK to start with and moved OK on the runnable stuff to Soldier's Lump, but Jack Ross came past - I was moving OK but evidently not very quickly. Line off very boggy, saved a bit but not moving as well on the bog/rough/downhills as I can - was caught by a Buxton as I eased across the bog. Feeling a bit tired in the head and a bit lacking in the legs.
3mins down on Harry (who did some river wading before the slabs), 50s on Jack. Pretty slow but it'll do at the moment.

Back to the car over Lad's Leap and Gravy Pud routes, with some heather bashing in between. Pretty nacked (2x9:30 kms in there) but got it done. It begins...
One last day off - Ankle a little creaky after yesterday but recovering well, no biggy.
I was hoping to feel completely refreshed right now, but I'm not. I think my body is OK, but I still feel pretty tired. This has to be down to PhD anxiety (12 months to go, lots of negative results [not necessarily a bad thing] - and not much statistical significance [probably a bad thing]).
Need to be much more disciplined with sleep, especially screen-time/procrastination before bed. 2 weeks building up, then 7 weeks Pre-OMM block. Run, work, Run, eat, sleep, repeat.
