Cycling (Norfolk Coast cycling) 4:30:00 [2] 53.0 mi (5:06 / mi) +540m 4:56 / mi

Parked at Great Bircham, then cycled via Anmer, West Newton, Roydon and Ashwicken to Kings Lynn. After a look around found the Norfolk Coast Cycleway and rode it through the Woottons, Castle Rising, Sandringham, Sedgeford and Ringstead, before a detour to Hunstanton. After an ice cream resumed NCC to Choseley before returning to start point via Docking. Route was much better in every way than I’d imagined and really looking forward to the rest of it now.

Trail race race (Chichester parkrun) 21:36 [5] 5.0 km (4:19 / km) +40m 4:09 / km
shoes: saucony swerve

Noticed my left shoe was grazing my right calf at the end of the Beach Run on Wednesday, just like it used to do back in the good old days when my posture was better. This was to see whether I noticed a difference again. Well, I didn't feel much better - possibly slightly more 'leggy' on hills - but after a steady start I felt alright and was able to power up from halfway round third lap to finish. Probably accounts for slightly quicker time. First hot parkrun of the year.

Trail race (Littlehampton Beach Run) 35:09 [3] 5.0 mi (7:02 / mi)
ahr:147 max:164

Really meant to start steady, but was driven mad by all the slow people down the front in the way and wasted tons of energy getting past them. Once we hit the sand I found myself passing Kav and catching Sean and thought pace may be too quick. Tried to get a gap but couldn't. After the turn the sun both low in the sky and reflecting off the wet sand made me glad I'd worn glasses. I was gradually slowing and being passed a bit, but so was Sean. Managed a strong-ish finish but had nothing left. Avg cadence 174 spm; avg stride length 130cm. Slower than last year but it may have been a bit further. Special unique race and a perfect evening for it. Great fun.
9 PM


According to strava data, last year's race was 300m shorter, which would have stopped my clock tonight at 33.50. Over 20 secs slower than last year's effort. Guess I'm just short of speedwork and HR in red zone post-marathon.
