Down and flat along Edge lane, big drop and then climb to W end of Brown hill Lane ( this seemed to go on a bit). Flattish and down along lane and past New Delight. Steepish climb from Shaw bottom to road, then its down and down ( except I had to get back to the car of course!!! so didn't do the last big descent and turned back along the road through Blackshaw Head - this really did go on and on)
    I think last year and year before we did it in about 1.47
    Today took closer to 2 hours ( plus even more to get back to the car) but there was some ice, I did stop to chat a couple of times and I wasn't really racing.
    It will be fine. Just remember you're racing with an old lady - so even if I get rid of this cold by then you may have to wait! At least I know the way- so you'll have to wait!! haha
    Haha, dont worry i wont be jetting off into the distance - you shall have the honour of tour guide and pacemaker. I am mere company.

    There seems alot of 'downs' which sounds good.

    I shall look forward to it.

    24 mins on stationary bike varying intensity (undulating course) keeping cadence above 90

    9 mins uphill on treadmill gradient increasing every minute same pace as first run....HARD after bike
