Trad rock climbing at Stanage all day with Liz, led 4 routes & soloed one VDiff at end.

Routes up to VS 4c, all classics, and all pretty serious if you're not used to gritstone ! Character building stuff. Hip sore - harness clearly aggravates it.

Perfect w/e, weather amazing. At no point did i think "I wish I was in Scotland". My interests come & go, & that's absolutely fine.

Lovely hot sunny day - 10 mile walk (all day) based around Dovedale but starting in the idyllic village of Alstonefield

Calf a bit iffy, back / hips less so.

Off to Bakewell for a climbing / walking w/e. Forecast still good.

Two routes in Dovedale before the gates locked. Nice/ limestone trad a bit scary! LH hip/SI agony afterwards - long walk out with heavy harness on. Shit.

Orienteering race 38:59 [4] 8.19 km (4:46 / km) +156m 4:21 / km
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

BOK Urban, Dursley/Cam, Blue 6km-ish

Had agreed to shadow Jim Bailey as he's too fast for Scott now.

But i was beaten up from yesterday's run ; and Jim started very fast.

Hanging on for grim death (kilometre no 3 was a ludicrous 4:12), until about 30 mins in when sadly my LH calf (the one I tore 2 months ago) started complaining, and I got stabbing pains. every minute or so.

So I had to back off (I did NOT do all the course!), which was disappointing, and Jim & I were reduced to little more than a jog up the final hill

Morale: stop overdoing it on every run and take it easy! Listen to Kimb.

Results: Owain & Adam incredible.

A very very good event - put on by two of the most organised & competent people in BOK - Paul & Alan. I had nothing to do really, at all! Top night.

Running 58:01 [4] 12.01 km (4:50 / km) +179m 4:30 / km
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

Hot. Hadn't run for 3 days, oh dear. PLan was steady 12km in 60 mins, so 58 was good, two meaty hills, coping better with them now. So hot afterwards! Feet sore too (hard ground)

Stoke Park/ Pur Down. Stunning spring day.

(rest day)

Was going to go for a 45-60 minute run - but lovely weather, so headed into the grounds of my building with tea & stuff mid afternoon & spent 2 hours getting very sleepy. No chance.
