Saturday Jan 27 #

12 PM

Fell Race race 1:12:43 [4] 10.0 km (7:16 / km) +641m 5:30 / km

Tarren Hendre Fell race.

Yonks since I did my last fell race, and it felt like it.

Very wet and muddy. Got stuck behind some traffic on the first steep climb thru the woods. Then after descent from the main summit, just didn't see what I had been told was an obvious quad bike track round the side of Pant Gwyn. Alice on the other hand says she didn't see the straight ahead / over the top path that I ended up on, so I don't know what was going on there. Thick clag needless to say. Strava flyby suggests I lost perhaps 90s or so.

Nice muddy descent thru' the woods then delightful traversing path high above Nant Gwernol with waterfalls in full spate.

Wednesday Jan 24 #

12 PM

Orienteering race 1:00:44 [4] 8.0 km (7:36 / km) +175m 6:51 / km

Army race at Longmoor.

Enjoyed this despite being out in the downpour associated with storm Georgina. Bit of a long Orange for the first few controls but more interesting, and more terrain running for the latter 2/3rd of the course.

Fairly happy with how I was running and oreinteering . Bit of time loss on short leg to 9 - lost concentration after I ran thru army exercise on approach to 8 - breaking one of their warning trip wires whilst doing so.

Run 1:09:35 [3] 8.72 km (7:59 / km) +547m 6:04 / km

MDC run up Pen y Fan via Y Gyrn, Tommy's and Corn Du. Back via the toilet track.. Sociable grroup run, without too much hanging around - tho' it was too windy for much chat ! Cara has made great strides in her running over the last year.

Run 1:21:05 [3] 13.6 km (5:58 / km) +275m 5:25 / km

Monday Night run in Bristol with Ben, Keith, Jack and a special guest appearence from Richard - bumped into him when picking Ben up from Newport Station.

Sociable run as ever, with Keith on better form than last week. Still no expletives.....

Pretty wet and cold, so curtailed the training after most had done a couple of exercises, and were still happy.
