Warm up/down 10:00 [3]
shoes: Mudclaw 300 b/r

In the fields by Pendleton.

Trail / Terrain Run 47:52 [3] 7.3 km (6:33 / km) +425m 5:05 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 b/r

Pendleton Fell Race after spending a good part of the morning tracking D, CH and MS in the Matterhorn Ultraks. Some race.
Rough and tussocky once out of the fields. Struggled up the first hill, but reeled in a lot of folk from then on.
Maybe 2nd V60, finished just behind 3rd lady.
Great setting for a fell race - picturesque village, great pub and a stream running down the main street for washing in. Lovely weather too. Glad to have not opted for the Pendle parkrun alternative.


In all the races this year I've been overtaking loads of folk on the downhills but it's always playing catch up after a poor ascent. Maybe that's just what ageing does for you. Somewhat frustrating but what the's still fun. Nice to be slotting in a lot of races that I've not done before too. That's at least four new ones since mid June.

Leg stretch with a loop along the Leeds & Liverpool canal. Nice amongst the narrow boats. Feeling pretty good.

Trail 50:00 [3] 8.0 km (6:15 / km)
shoes: Mudclaw 300 b/r

Local wanderings up the back. Noted the refurbished track in Potties. Not a very useful one. Felt knackered for some reason.


With AT. Again. 6 Day tentage. Ballater. Dried. Packed. Done. Good. Relief.

Orienteering 1:25:19 [3] 11.6 km (7:21 / km) +306m 6:30 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 b/r

Overthe hill to Home Farm then through past Achnafoy and onto Balfour map. Main track up to the 6 Day Blue start then S-1-2-3-4-5-6-10-9-8. Did them a lot better this time around not suprisingly. Lots of kudos to 3000 competitors and officials...just one piece of shoe tape and 1 x tag for control 145....and a whole heap of elephant tracks. Back from 8 via Home Farm again but then the road route.

Mtn Bike 1:15:00 [3] 19.5 km (3:51 / km) +410m 3:29 / km

Road or Mtn bike? Mtn won.
Ground out the climb up Corybeg. Always tough this one. Instead of heading straight down the back headed right, round the back of Lamahip and took the long diagonal track into the Forest of Birse. Then back down the road as far as the main gate to Finzean House, up past the stables and over the top and down home. Very enjoyable.
