8 AM

Cycling warm up/down (To Event) 54:00 [3] 17.2 km (3:08 / km)
shoes: Specalized MTB Cleats

To Gladstone Park. Unfortunately missed a turning near the end and so ended up cycling an extra kilometre (and climbing a 12% gradient).
9 AM

Road Running race (parkrun) 21:02 [3] 5.0 km (4:12 / km) +80m 3:54 / km
slept:5.5 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11 AW11

Gladstone parkrun. Arrived a bit late (see above) so started 80 seconds after everyone else, and with no time to switch from jogpants to shorts. Then had to stop for a further 30 seconds at the first corner to retie a lace. Very pleasant day, great views from the park, and a nice two-lap butterfly course with some not insignificant up-and-down. Never pushed myself - was trying to recover from the cycle to the event, and mindful of the day's long cycle afterwards.

Great organisation from the parkrun team - lots of signs, marshals, photography and encouragement. Felt a little bad tearing through the back of the field - it must be disconcerting to have someone do that to you long after you've settled into your pace.

Splits: 4:44, 4:02, 4:28, 4:08, 3:41 (Garmin says course was 80m short so final km is more like 3:58.)
10 AM

Cycling long (To Event) 5:24:25 [2] 92.8 km (3:30 / km) +650m 3:23 / km
shoes: Specalized MTB Cleats

From Gladstone Park (NW London) to Oxford, via Harrow, Pinner, Amersham, Great Missenden, Princes Risborough, Thame and Wheatley. A pretty efficient, straight route (the second half was generally on NCR57), with some nice sections along the Chilterns Cycleway in particular and going through Pinner in London. Phoenix Trail section (Princes Risborough to Thame) was duller than expected. Highest altitude was 260m. Time doesn't include an hour's break at a pub about half-way along. Moving time was 4:49:45, + 35 minutes of short breaks, + lunch. Amused to get a puncture on literally the final corner - about 50m from the planned end at St Aldates.
