Macclesfield Forest Middle race.

Great day, good race. Really enjoyed it even if there was a ridiculous amount of climb! Made almost a minute mistake on the long leg at the end.. Went straight even though I knew round the path would probably be faster.

Order was - Kris (brilliant time), Jonny, Me, Jamie.

Running the final training course with Jamie. He was beasting it, and orienteering almost as good as I do.

Road Biking 34:00 [3] 10.5 km (18.5 kph)

On the new road bike ..bit of a beaut.

First time on a road bike as well. Bit wobbley and took a bit to get used to hand positions and braking.

Rode from home up Buxton road, down into higher hurdsfield, then through Rainow, down to Bollington, past the Viceroy and on to Gemma's.

Kept up with cars through Bollington!


New carbon fibre orthotics arrived today.
Walked home up the hill from Arighi's in them and they felt fine.

In comparing them with my old ones:
1/ They are a lot lighter
2/ The arch is much more pronounced which WILL solve my over-pronotion problems, destroying my shin splints and back problems in one awesome swoop (or step).

Running 30:00 [3] 2.0 km (15:00 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

Ran with Alex along the middlewood way from the Speak's to the Board Head.

Back again after the race.

Running race 54:00 [4] 12.5 km (4:19 / km) +366m 3:46 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

Boar's Head Hill race. Great race, good views, good terrain.

I strarted off a bit slow as it was a gradual climb up to the cage in Lyme Park.

Then for the choice of route near lantern wood I decided to go the long was round straight up the steep path and then along the path across the top of the moor to Bow Stones. Probably quicker going straight across the moor but a lot harder work.
I was about the same distance behind someone who went straight.

Then the best bit of the course - going round the top of the park and then down the long downhill section. Fantastic views and awesome descent.

Gained some places scrabbling up the almost vertical slope but then lost them again running towards the smaller cage.

Then coming out of the park was not great as it was hard ground and my spikes were digging into my feet.

Just about got up the last hill and then downhill to the finish!!

I assume I was along way behind the leader as the course record is 43mins!
I could have tried a lot harder on the hills but downhills I pushed it as hard as I could.


Calves are incredibly tight post race!!
- probably more from the downhills.
