Run (Specific endurance ) 2:01:00  20.0 km (6:03 / km) +850m 4:59 / km
As the wind and stormy weather is still quite bad I planned a relatively low level run whilst still getting in the vert. Drove to Ilkley Moor (30 min drive). Ilkley Moor is 400m high.
I wasn’t sure i’d quite get enough vert but it worked out just below the prescribed 900-1000m.
The weather is still pretty wild and it snowed on and off for most of the run and quite a bit of snow and ice on the ground (this made the descending slower than normal)
I generally felt ok, the first climb was pretty hard as it was straight into the wind but after that I felt better. I didn’t feel particularly strong on the climbs but I think that could be a lot to do with the difficult underfoot conditions. 2hours flew by, I was sad to have to stop!
