    Afraid not.

    The only food to be seen was the landlady's fry up. It was so large the most portly lorry driver would have struggled to devour it!

    In the Lakes for a few days with the family so mainly walking. Weather was pretty foul today but managed to grab a couple of hours out in Newlands. Barrow, Outerside, Sail, Scar Crags and Causey Pike. Bailed out of Eel Crag as the wind was so bad I was having trouble standing up. 14km/1250m.

    Beacon Hill, via Buck Hill; felt quite good, but it was still a bit slow. The new trods around the two fallen trees on one of the steeper parts of the permissive path up Beacon Hill are now sufficiently well trodden that I can keep running up them.

    Back in the Outwoods, I encountered a newly fallen tree, a big birch lying across a path. Last Winter they cleared an area of conifers to replant with native trees; the Westerly gales in February felled several trees on the east side of the clearing, and now last Friday's southerly gale did for this birch on the north side. Trees that have grown surrounded by other trees don't have the strength to resist when suddenly exposed to wind.

    Out the back door (Teesdale) - 7.27 miles, 1197 feet, 1 hr 16 mins. Sunny up here all day, but the midges at the trig were the worse this summer so far.

    Back home, 10K indoor row. 43 mins.

    Thanks. Even in my dotage I try and give it a go! But it doesn't even put me into the top 300 for my age group on the Concept 2 international league.I clearly need to try harder

    The actual figures yesterday were 10K in 43.21 mins, 840 cals/hr, average 23 spm, average 2:10.6/500m split, 607 cals burned in total.

    No running today, nothing to do with the downpours, honest! This morning's row (in the dry garage!) was a more modest 650 cal row-down, which clocked up 109997 meters with an average 2:17 min/500 split at 761 cals/hr, averaging 24 spm.

    I really enjoy the rower and find it complements my (modest) running well.

    10mins warm up, 30mins hill reps, 3km hilly run, 1km cool down. Storm Francis made it a bit tougher than expected.

    For some reason I cannot post on here from any device other than my home laptop.
    So Sundays training was a lovely loop of 10 miles and 1,300ft in 1hr 26 from the Rhyd-y-Benwch car park in the Hafren Forest up to the source of the River Severn. Warm and sunny but breezy on the top.

    A wonderful part of the world and very uncrowded other than one weekend a year when the RAC/WalesRallyGB is in town. Worth a watch too.

    In the last few years, thousands of tons of timber has been felled which in turn has opened up some wonderful views only spoiled by distant wind turbines.

    To loosen the legs this evening, after the drive home, a 3 miles and 250 feet run around local fields whilst being battered by Francis.

    A welcome return to club training last night, despite the at times heavy rain and wind.

    8 x 500m on the road... 4 of them into the weather and the other 4 (unsurprisingly) with the wind behind us.

    First rep into the wind was at 6min/mile pace, and gradually turned on the pace, getting them down to around 5:40/mile pace.

    The reps with the wind behind were much quicker, starting at 5:45/mile, and getting down to around 5:15/mile pace.

    Despite some stiffness from sunday's efforts at Llangollen, i felt very strong tonight, and i was told it was noticeable that i've been working hard... which is nice to hear... i was certainly a few places further forward in our group compared to before the lockdown.

    Need to keep it up now though!
