Post training at low winskill farm, fancied loop to feizor from Stainforth, through oxenber woods and over smearsett scar. Felt quite bonky after long day in the cold wind, tried to go really easy, felt better on the leg back but right achilles/ankle giving some jip, bit sore when it bends in certain way. Hmm!

7 PM

Strength & Conditioning 20:00 [3]

Resistance band exercises, usual stuff kickbacks and kicks, then some calf raises as well to try strengthening achilles. Whether that's wise when bit sore we shall see

After a long day in Swaledale yomping around a farm in wellies, 20k steps on rough hilly ground, was thinking a session up there somehow but just wanted to get out the valley.
Thought about reps on pen y ghent climb but instead just did a tempo effort up to the summit to keep it simple. Was very still conditions, nice temp but went taps aff for most of it for fun. Really pleased actually, first time going sub 30 (previous best was 30:14 ish, though don't recall doing a full gas effort on it over the last 6 years but must have done, defo been puffed out on it and all the 3 peaks efforts felt similar. Had I done today's effort at the start of a peaks race, would have set off too hard but not absolutely outrageous, felt weird sustainable idk) and first time running the whole climb without breaking stride, have always ended up hiking much of the track from the steep bit to the summit. Went 28:08 on the segment, and my watch split was 29:33 which I split from the very start of the left turn in Horton, to touch the trig. Good stuff, really think the kickbacks have helped in strengthening the glutes and hams, seemed strong on the steep bits and able to run. Think it could have gone quicker as well, seeing as had a long day on my feet hiking about, and not fresh from yesterday's run too, plus the weekend wedding sesh, perhaps even a minute quicker? Not sure. Great signs anyway. Had some tunes on which is nice for a hard effort. Only felt mega puffed on the final steps really, though probably was a tempo-hard really

Running 1:24:48 [3] 14.61 km (5:48 / km) +468m 5:00 / km

Wanted to go easy but classically with the dogs trying to keep them under control around stock you end up running a wee bit harder as to walk at heel their trot is quite quick, haha. To Malham then a lap of gordale gremlin when the heavens opened, up Weets then had to get a fair scamper on down to Calton as was being chased by thunder and lightning. Nice outing but would ideally have slowed up slightly

Running 41:49 [3] 7.86 km (5:19 / km) +97m 5:01 / km

Stinking hangover but legs felt indescribably better than yesterday for whatever reason, maybe cutting shapes loosened them out, pleasant romble to bell busk and back on the shorter loop, no haw crag.
