Sunday Feb 4 #

Fell running race 1:43:46 [5] 18.1 km (5:44 / km) +1370m 4:10 / km
shoes: Innov8 212 2017 #3

Long Mynd Valleys Fell Race 2nd
Set off very hard and found Si Bailey and another guy for company on the first part of the climb. By the descent I was solo with Si running off. Followed his line to #2 and despite Abi and Duncan's encouragement he was gone. Made it to #2 not too far ahead of Tom and much to my surprise Si!
Got to #3 fine before making a mistake to #4 with Si and sneaking in with Tom close again behind.
Got a scare on and ran hard to #5 and #6. Got a bit of a gap over the group behind with Si and took my preferred line to #7. Took a fall on the contour and gashed my leg. Just kept plugging away up the hill but Si put a dog in and got a gap again. Dropped down and tried to keep him in sight, the slogged my way up Yearlet again, it doesn't get easier! Saw Jack, Abi and Duncan again whilst I was in pain before hobbling off the top and tried to descend as best as I could.

Pretty pleased! 3/4mins pb over last year in similar conditions even with a nav mistake. Strava is saying 30s on the long track leg to #2 and 30s up Yearlet as the main gains.

Jog about beforehand with Tom. Not much.

Full length of the prom. Battling a headwind the entire way. Continued on to the Titanic dock before heading back in to town. Somehow there were bits with a headwind the other way?!

Two easier days now I think before Sunday.

Hot date with Pete Bray.
Ran from Salford Quays out to Stretford Meadows on the canal then on to Urmston. Got there a while before the train so ran on towards the next station which thoroughly disorientated me.
Feeling pretty decent and it went pretty quick having a good chat. Got slowed down in slippy mud. Enjoyed.
