11 AM

Off-road running race 1:16:20 [4] 13.45 km (5:41 / km) +298m 5:07 / km
ahr:148 max:178 slept:8.5 (injured) shoes: Saucony Excursion

Lowther (Trail) Run - DNF. Really enjoyed the experience and getting back into a proper race situation (really can't remember the last time I did this - National XC in 2015??) and on a lovely mixed terrain course (in wind and rain too!). Felt relaxed and very much in control, but sadly the heel pain worsened, impacting also on the rest of the right leg. Abandoned at the Askham Common road (c. 8.5K) and loosened shoe which enabled me to jog easily back to the castle. Overall, more positives than not.

Note
rhr:34 slept:8.2 (rest day)

Had thought about cycling to Yewtree but wind and rain would have made it fairly treacherous. In the end, we had to drive Aunty P down to Manchester to be assured of a train back to London. Proper wind and rain day!

Cycling 2:01:16 [4] 43.8 km (2:46 / km) +558m 2:36 / km
ahr:139 max:170 slept:6.1

Awesome ride (in cracking weather) from home to Grasmere via Natland, Kendal, Rt 6 to Wind then from Ambleside to Skelwith and up and over Red Bank - tough first Lakeland proper climb: 1.14K at 9%. Descent was a bit hair-raising due to cars and water on my side of the road...
6 PM

Fitness training 50:18 [2] 2.62 km (19:12 / km) +2m 19:08 / km
ahr:116 max:149

Lawn-cutting - fascinated to see how far and intense it was. Garmin says 'some benefit' :). Jogging the longer strips and mower was struggling on some of the longer and mossier grass.

Lovely joggy walk from home to Kendal via Levens, old canal path and River Kent. Sarah bandaged my heel but it was still very sore by the end.

New loop - Hev Head, Hincaster Hall and back around over the Head... walked last bit through the village as heel sore descending on tarmac. Still painful and last bit seems to be taking an age to clear up - now a week old.
