    Re: Today's Training

    I did the Screel Hill race yesterday; a SHR championship race it was great conditions to run in the race was only 6.4km and 400m of climbing. Instead of my conservative climbing technique and then look to maximise the flatter and downhill bits, I went for it on the climb knowing it was only a short race and my fitness is improving. Seemed to pay off as I just made it into the top 3rd finishers, instead of my normal target of getting into the top half. The race was won in a new course record time.
    I then got back home and did a steady 5 miles with my dogs on the quite back lanes.

    Quick 6 mile run with the dog down the River Kent. Third day's running in a row and legs felt a bit tight so no hills today.

    Ran up the Beacon on Thursday and Saturday looking for best route off for race, getting stronger as I still had a spring in my step over the last two Km, that was not there last week

    Re: Today's Training

    Just wondering if there are any training plans on this forum, specifically for fell running. The only guidance I can find online tells you the basics but just wondered if there are any weekly training plans that are proven. I know hills + speed work +mileage + core training = good training, but just after some sort of calendar plan. I've been putting in the miles and hills but would like to mix the training up with a training plan. Plus if I follow a plan I can look back to see what has worked in the past, and help to improve going forward, instead of just plodding on aimlessly.

    I don't really follow a proper training plan, but do two club nights a week with efforts (road running club) and try and do my other runs on the moors wherever possible including a long run with a lot of hill climbing in. I would suggest following a road training plan if you feel you need one but just do it predominately off road adjusting pace accordingly. It's all running and is surprisingly similar with the exception of getting climbs in your legs.

    Re: Today's Training

    Just found a new quickie route from my house straight up to Beacon Hill. 2.5m/610ft. Right on my doorstep and never done it before, sort of thing you could do first thing in a morning and last thing at night as a dog outing. First one to the top gets to sit on a pile of stones, it wasn't me
    Views up towards the M62 between Scammonden Bridge and Windy Hill and Great Manshead End, Lancashire just over the hill.

    My plan is to have no plan .......... other than to run in the hills each and every day and to then run up each and every hill if humanly possible (no walking). My 'no plan' plan seems to be working believe it or not

    a bit of swimming - man the harpoons time in the pool!
    Then a road run with the club, the highlight of which was a youth acting the big-man trying to block our path. He got knocked over by me and another bloke (well if he does stand in our way...), street cred ruined as his mates laughed at him, he tried to chase after us but was too chubby to keep up our sedate pace.
