    After 2 years out with injury and some tragic family circumstances I’m back running from Monday. I know I need to start at the beginning again but my fitness does return quite quickly. Living in the Stourbridge area it is tough to get the 10,000 ft in a week. Any tips on some base mileage and getting the climbs in would be very welcome

    Spen, you're not far from where I live. There is plenty of good advice on this thread regarding specific strength training. Combine that a few runs on the Clent/Waseley Hills and you should be well on your way. I can easily get 500m ascent into a 10k run - 30-40 mins hill reps will yield about the same ascent. Nowhere near what you could do in the lakes etc but at least it is time out on your feet on testing terrain.

    Not sure if you are a cyclist but your local area is also a cycling dream in terms of plentiful, if short, hill climbs. 2 hours ride will get you 1000m ascent easily.

    I ripped out some old fitted wardrobes last weekend, and built this in anticipation of the cold dark winter months ahead: 62041194712__6627D401-D1F8-4CA7-A096-33E150093CA3.jpg — it’s been christened "yewbarrow".

    Excellent question.

    I “engineered” it with step-ups in mind (it is reinforced with 2x4 inside), but having given it a few ginger leaps, I’m hopeful I can use it for plyo jumps as well.

    I was planning on making something a bit more flash, but when fate hands you six identical square former-cupboard-doors…
