    Awful parkrun this morning. Woke up knackered and raw with fatigue, didn't want to go but went anyway. Left lateral quads cramped at 3k leading to kneecap maltracking and lots of discomfort. I could easily have just quit and walked off.

    60m on the bike yesterday, up to the craven arms for a crumble and custard and some refreshment, then took the long way home out past linton, embsay, then over embsay fell. As i approached burnsall i could have sworn the village was on fire, but it was the tourist field with its countless barbecues; i was glad to get out of there. I passed a man throwing up in a layby and half way up embsay fell i passed a group of e-mtb'ers having a joint at the roadside. It was a better ride than some of the runs i've had recently.

    Wasn't it a bit hot for crumble and custard Luke?

    More of a lemon torte and ice cream day I would have thought!
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Calories, it's all about calories mainly, that and taste. I don't actually know what a lemon torte is.

    Starting to throw some miles in riding to work, 32/wk for 2wks now, on the old Alan with the downtube shifters.

    5x 1 mile on the track this evening. 6.45mmp off 90s rests. The fifth was a bit of a grind. I was blowing more than when I last did mile reps.

    Is use of the word "track" allowed?

    Well done mate - decent session.

    Nice one MrB.

    I've been missing the track lately.... as i'm only doing one club session a week, fortune has dictated i've been at the grass sessions rather than the track..... missed 8 x 400mtrs tonight which is a particular favourite of mine.

    20m on the bike this evening. It was pretty shitty, the gale coming down the wharfe valley was rich in dust and pollen, so as well as slowing me to a crawl it totally screwed my sinuses. I needed a steady session after the weekend, I'm going to have to taper back into running.

    A colleague suggested i start taking the Leeds-Liverpool canal home to get away from Kirkstall Road, i'm going to try it tonight. Riding speeds will probably be a lot lower. 17m for the day then.

    The most important part of your bike on a canal towpath is your bell!
