Hurricane running

It felt faster but timer said only 1 minute 8 seconds faster than last week. 3 miles 33.28 av speed 5.3 mph. Not the quickest but will get better. Plus it was dark, raining, windy, half cross country, 6 gates 2 cattle grids and a numpty in a 4x4 pulling a trailer slowed me down. Honest.

Yesterday I got back in the saddle in front of a fitness class so they sweated to my choice of music and were pushed to a 7.5 minute hill climb finale.

Today a bimble around on the ridge geocaching, found my first one. Nerd alert!

Gales meant no cycling.

Hill training

Very hard session 7.6 miles hill training. Thought I was going to die. More uphill than down, down was suicidal due to road conditions, hairpin bends and flail hedge trimmer. Will do again as its not far from home and only took 45 mins. Be a good building block for the 321 challenge next year.

Watch this space.

321 123

New challenge decided for 2015. Its a biggy, once the publicity pics are created then all will be revealed but it does involve a bike, a dog, a big bike ride and a long walk. Some mountains and very little sleep.

Good news is doc says I am not ill, just injured. Results of lots of tests show all negative, CT scan to go but confidence is high that I have "simply" hurt myself rather than anything sinister. Huge sigh of relief celebrated by huge breakfast.

Spinning class tonight, 50 mins av hr116 max 149 cals  400
