Fell 51:32 [5] 9.82 km (5:15 / km) +686m 3:53 / km
shoes: VJ XTRM

Maddy Moss hill race, 51:32

First proper race in over 14 (??) months. Great to be back at it. Fairly strong field which made for a good one.
Straight into a steep climb from the off. Felt like a shock to the system initially but soon settled in and found a good rhythm. Worked through the field on the climb up to Ben Cleuch, summiting in 4th, right on the tail of Sam Tosh in 3rd.
Some fast undulating running from there before the real descending started. Ran most of this neck and neck with Sam before opening up a nice gap about halfway down. Feeling great on the descent; thought I had 3rd in the bag before Ali Macleod appeared out of nowhere which made for a good tussle to the line. 4th in the end, 3 seconds off Ali in 3rd.

Road/Trail mix 1:03:47 [1] 12.52 km (5:06 / km) +173m 4:46 / km
shoes: Hoka Carbon X 2

60' easy + hill sprints

A wet and wild day with the weather here. Easy trot from the house with hill sprints on the road at halfway. Less conscious of the knee today than I was at the start of the week, albeit still not 100%. Don't think it'll be a problem for tomorrow though. Don't know the course at all which isn't ideal but will be good to get a race under the belt all the same

Road/Trail mix 1:02:17 [3] 16.05 km (3:53 / km) +82m 3:47 / km
shoes: Hoka Carbon X 2

60' moderate

Back in Inverness. Was expecting the legs to legs to feel worse after all the running on Tuesday but not too bad really. Very windy out there which made it harder to get into a rhythm. Eased off the intensity when running into the strong headwinds and on a couple of small inclines. All nice and controlled

Wednesday May 19 #

Trail / Fell 1:13:00 [1] 9.49 km (7:42 / km) +598m 5:51 / km

Easy run. Continued heading back up north with a quick stop in Edinburgh to catch up with a pal for an easy run around the seat. Nice and undulating up and over the crags, avoiding the crowds on the seat itself. Knee no worse for a big day in the Lakes on Tuesday

Monday May 17 #


Spent most of the day driving north, arriving in the Lakes just before dark. Got a short walk along the east side of Derwentwater to stretch the legs, felt quite tired from the drive

Sunday May 16 #

Fell (Easy ) 3:43:00 [1] 30.53 km (7:18 / km) +683m 6:34 / km
shoes: VJ XTRM

Long-ish run on the Moor with Jo, Tim Lenton and a few other locals. Out for a bit longer than I needed to be really but all super easy going. Got to be one of the wettest runs i’ve done - A day for 2 waterproof jackets and still soaked right through. A lot of incredibly wet, rough, boggy terrain but that’s just Dartmoor for you.

Interesting chatting to Tim about all his Scottish hill racing exploits when he used to live up north. Never realised he
was a previous Jura winner.

Knee felt a lot better today, perhaps due to the softer terrain. Still a bit sore to touch but I wasn’t nearly so conscious of it whilst running
