shoes: Saucony Fastwitch 6

NWO Urban level C, Wootton Bassett

B course - vets & women.

good run - few errors, one route choice, one error down wrong close, only cost me about 20 seconds tho. Bit of a storm at that point - soaked!

left calf a bit crampy str8 after, need to get physio to work on the hip area I believe.

no results up as yet but think I was 1st; Alice Leake & Roger thetford being 90 secs & 2.5 mins down I believe; scrappy doo with a scrappy run on 42. Tommi 44.

Nice day. Pleasing run.

Cycling 33:03 [3] 5.8 mi (5:42 / mi) +104m 5:24 / mi

Quick cycle ride to new house, to suss the place out. all very positive , met landlord, who was cleaning it for me..

plenty of chippies, newsagents, takeaways, barbers etc close by.

very quiet well-kept part of town. Hmmm. Nothing like windmill hill, but miles nicer than Knowle west etc.

I lived in Clifton once, though......
Had to walk up hill in first mile - desperately steep.

Still tired.

Passed referencing, so will be moving a week Monday - good. Worry over.

new postcode is BS14 9AZ if anyone wants to look. / criticise / applaud / laugh / sigh in desperation.
4 PM

Running 30:00 [3] 6.0 km (5:00 / km) +90m 4:39 / km
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 5

forgot I'd logged a rest day, and felt like a spin later so bumbled around the park & totterdown for an easy relaxed & enjoyable 30 min trundle.

the hill I did 3 times in the race last Saturday is still nails, at any pace! don't believe me? come and do it. Liz agrees.

Walking for 2 hrs+ around Tyntesfield , checking control sites & map for 8th October Saturday series event. A few minor map changes.

Who's coming? Who's helping?

Very tired today. Need a rest, actually.

I've accepted his house to live in, from early October, subject to vetting (them vetting me)

It has parking, & is quiet, & close to things I do, so should be OK.

Shame about the failure of 56 Mendip road as a home, but there you go. at least I made a fat profit. . . . pre-Brexit..... (just!)

11 AM

Running 1:02:13 [4] 7.94 mi (7:50 / mi) +86m 7:35 / mi
shoes: Saucony Guide 7

Midweek beasting. Took an urban O map to get into looking at maps.

Quite hard up hills early on, paused at 6.5km & ran easily round Hengrove Mound nature reserve, that I'd not seen before.

More pain later - LH hip / buttock / hamstrings sore - grim. Dying in sun - hot.

800m slightly uphill road section at 50 mins in 3:01/2 - fastest ever is 2:57 so pretty good - felt rough tho, & very sweaty.

Good session, but not back to my best yet & some way to go - plus I feel recovery is taking a while. Hmmmm.

indoor bouldering at Bloc climbing centre.

Really good. A lot better than 2 weeks ago.

Found myself flashing loads of Orange problems onsite, and crushing a Black that had totally repelled me 2 weeks ago.

IN fact, started repeating all the hard ones just to prove I could really do them, no fluke! All fine.

Climbing is on the up, it helps that I still weigh about 66% of what I'm supposed to - I feel very thin & weightless. Spiderman!

Monday Sep 19 #

(rest day)

Quite knackered, but not ill, & not as knackered or stiff / sore as I'd feared I'd be. Liz gave my hips & hamstrings a 30 minute once over last night post hot bath, which probably helped.
