January has been pretty much about slowly rebuilding my fitness back up after my enforced lay off during December due to having a operation Sad

so sunday was Slaghterford 9miles ( actually 8.4miles by my Garmin ) of off road mud, hills and even a stream to run in. the race went Ok considering the lack of fitness I started at the back ( pretty much last over the start line ) the first mile is down hill as tried to take it easy but this didn't last long as I started catching and passing people pretty quickly, and continud passing people for the whole race my lack of fitness started to show at around 7 miles in which is just in time for a plod up a bloody freezing stream then some mincing as I got some feeling back in my feet then its pretty much all uphill to the finish.
Overall I enjoyed the race and a pb'ed by 6 mins, finished with a avg hr of 173

Next up is a 10 mile road race in 2 weeks time this will give me an idea of what time I will be going for at MK marathon.


Slacko - Cheers mate

The week started with a couple of missed sessions as I had to work late Mad Also moved my rest day to Tuesday due to parents evening which went very well with both Ethan and Evie getting glowing reports Cool

Saturdays ride was fun I rode with putt putt from Chippenham to Cheltenham and then turned around and rode back on my own while putt putt did some family stuff in Cheltenham, it was a good ride I seem to keep up with Putt putt when I used to struggle to stay with him, also seem to have got my nutrition alot better than last year.

Sundays ride was a lapped affair round a local route the first 3hrs went Ok but started to struggle towards the end of the first 3 hrs, so I went back home to refil the bottles and food and grab a bowl full of noodles and a cup of tea before going back out, went back out after the break and the wind had gotten up a bit and my speed dropped right off as I just seemed to grind out the last 3hrs, the worst part was my very sore undercarriage and I have never been so glad almost joyful to pull on my running shoes and head out for a run Shocked which was interesting but seemed to settle after 10mins and maintained a nice easy 10min/miling pace Cool
The legs took a couple days to recover from the weekend, it will be interesting to see how they hold up to doing another monster bike weekend this weekend
