    A good week. 73 miles, mostly whilst sweating profusely.

    Weight reached down to 77.7kg this week, which is well below my maximum allowance i'm permitting myself of 80kg, and even a touch below my old fight-weight 78kg.

    Club night down in Coventry, and 5 x 1km on grass with 90secs rest.

    A real struggle in the heat.

    3:39
    3:36
    3:40
    3:43
    3:46

    But a solid 7.5 miles, and 11.5 miles total for the day.

    3 x reps up Hallin Fell from the church. About half mile and 500ft.

    7:01 for starters
    6:51 feeling warmed up
    6:40 valiant final effort

    4.5 miles total run.

    Set a marker now for those reps of what time i can do when fresh and feeling fit. Be interesting to revisit in a couple of weeks with a few races under the belt, see if it sharpens me up a bit further.

    Set out today with the aim of reccying part of the Old Crown Round Route, specifically the Blencathra - Skiddaw House - Skiddaw section.

    The MWIS forecast, whilst vastly improved on earlier forecasts, didn't inspire great confidence, so set out in a baselayer, but it turned out to be much warmer and sunnier than expected, and i ended up topless after about 1000ft climbing, until reaching Keswick.

    From Scales, up Scales Fell to the top of Blencathra. From there i took a route which for now i'll keep undisclosed, but safe to say it's not on the race map nor the choice of options on the race description.

    The jury is still out on it, ideally i'd like to try the "standard" route down Mungrisedale Common, but don't think i'll get a chance before the race, so will have to spend some time thinking and studying the map.

    From Skiddaw House i took the track behind it up onto Skiddaw main path, but instead turned left and up Skiddaw Little Man, then straight down the tourist path and into Keswick, where i was relieved to get some more water inside me.

    11.5 miles, 4080ft. That leaves me on a reasonable 65.5 miles for the week. I'd like to think that i'll nip out tonight and round that up to 70, but that may be wishful thinking!

    First session of Outwoods hill reps for about 4 months. Times varying from 2:32 to 2:45, which is faster than I have done them in the past. I'm not sure if the following wind was a factor; being in the woods, the wind is somewhat attenuated. More likely that it is just the seasonal variation in fitness, i.e. the tendency to feel fitter in Summer.
