    Lovely stuff Travs.
    We probably passed each other on Blea Rigg. Me, Mrs S and the pooch had lovely afternoon (and surprisingly dry) up on Silver How, Blea Rigg and Sergeant Man. Dropped down into far Easedale and missed out Tarn Crag as Mrs has a dodgy knee that's not great on steeper descents.
    Tarn crag is a lovely fell and although I had ticked off practically every Wainwright in the central fells, this one had eluded me until a LDMT recce earlier this year, mores the pity. Weather not looking great for tomorrow but today exceeded expectations so let's hope tomorrow follows suit.

    Hi Pete, likely we bypassed on Blea Rigg, long stretches after the summit, heading back in the direction of Silver Howe/Ambleside, I was well over on the Langdale flank, having left the main path, did see people over to the left.

    Still have a few more Central Fells to tick off, although they are now randomly spaced and difficult to tie together in one run.... Pavey Ark, Gibson Knott, Armboth Fell, Eagle Crag, Sergeants Crag, Grange Fell.... would make an interesting LDMT style day out...!

    Well it's 6-20am, I've been awake an hour listening to the rain on the window here in Ambleside. Finally just dared to poke my head out the window and must admit I didn't like what I saw...!

    After 64 miles and 17000ft last week, it has been an easy start to the week with a couple of steady sessions. Managed to get back down the club tonight for a 6.5 mile road run, which I kept steady except for an 800mtr thrash in the middle. Including my own track warmup, a total of 9 steady miles.

    Possibly have a bash at a fast Parkrun on Saturday.

    Returned to my local Parkrun this morning, having got lost there 3 weeks ago. But having got round the LDMT last weekend I felt ready for the navigational challenge of a marked 5km...

    Managed 19:02 which whilst a pb by a long way, I wasn't incredibly happy with. I fell apart in the final mile, whether because of a very hard race last weekend, going out too fast, or perhaps I'm Just not as quick as I thought, I'm not sure. Certainly feel I've got another 30 seconds in me at least, in my current state.

    Came 3rd. A group of 5 of us went out hard from the start, but on hitting the first hill, a couple went straight off the back. The winner (a clubmate) pulled away and showed his superior ability, finishing sub-18, and I was overtaken in the final mile. Worst bit for me was this guy took 20 seconds out of me in the final mile, I really phoned the last few minutes in.

    Hopefully have another go in the coming weeks and hope to get significantly under 19mins.

    Club night tonight, Kenyan Hills 20 minute session. I'm not too sure exactly what is Kenyan about running up and down a shallow hill alongside the busy A45 in Coventry. I'm told Kenyan refers to constant effort, as opposed to uphill or downhill reps.

    The hill is about 600m long and never really gets above 8-9% gradient, so it's not exactly Gamlin End, but a hard session for me as it's basically a 20 minute speed session.

    Pushed it quite hard throughout, managed to drop everyone apart from the coach, who had about 60 yards on me by the end. We had a new guy who is obviously pretty handy... he came flying past me about 15 mins in, but I could see he was working hard and I took him again on the final uphill.... got to show these new guys who is the "king of the hill...!" No doubt when he gets his eye back in he'll be miles in front of me!

    7.5 miles including a good warmup and runout to the session.

    I think the hills are Kenyan when you do the 600m uphill in 1m50s and the 600m downhill in 1m30s.
