    It seemed a bit like sour grapes to me, Noel. I was talking about it to a couple of Smoggie lads after and their take on it was "three checkpoints, a start and a finish...what's the problem".

    Blackstone Edge last night, 3.5m/1200'. I did a set of practice starts in my warmup to get my start speed right up to the bridle track. as well as getting my breathing going a bit, it made sure i didn't run myself into o2 debt too early. I was behind a guy on the 200m run in down the road and went very early on the sprint, basically as soon as i hit the road after the houses. He couldn't live with it and i romped it; i put it down to all the flatish speed training i do, a relatively insignificant situation in terms of my result, but a big bonus to know i can go deep very late in a race.

    5k fartlek in the woods last night. Really quite muddy and verging on unrunnable at speed.

    5.9m/1640' today, at West Nab. I was thinking about Shepherds Crook tommorrow, but my old right hip fasciitis was niggling slightly towards the end of the race, so i've got a nice flow session arranged first thing and will probably go for a walk to a tea room somewhere.

    50m on the bike today, Craven Arms and back, 2h54m. I look quite well cooked, the sun is strong.

    Carr Bridge Drive reps tonight, 0.25m/ 110', 7 reps. Recovery times are quite good, but i think my legs tire quickly after rep 5.



    I've ordered some of this Chinese kung fu rubbing ointment for my old bones. It comes highly recommended in kung fu mastery books and will sort you out after a hard session punching tree trunks.

    I intend to be disrespectful to Chi blockages and stagnation, and apply the Shaolin special sauce liberally with utmost honour to the ancient wisdom. I will banish my stiffness and shame to the land of wind and ghosts.

    Interesting that the first two ingredients are frankincense and myrrh (but no gold); so the "Wise men from the East" had come from China?

    I wonder if this stuff would deal with my tennis elbow; it would be a lot cheaper than physiotherapy.

    Yesterday, 24m bike ride to my gran's house and back, she's dying of heart failure and hasn't got long left. I gave her some quads recruitment exercises to do so she can walk a bit easier.

    Today, return of the 9m speed endurance session which hasn't taken place for a while now. I think i held off a bit really, just concentrated on quick leg speed and good posture. I've got nothing to do until the Thurlstone Chase now, there's not a great deal in the calendar that i like the look of, i should be able to get a top ten at Thurlstone looking at past results. My right kneecap is maltracking a bit so i'm going to have to watch that.
