Another glorious day on the Cleveland Way and a plan executed reasonably well all things considered.
After weeks of worry about even making the start line, I finished the Hardmoors 60.
This was the last full week before Hardmoors and wraps up a miserable month of non-training before the big race.
With only 2 weeks to Hardmoors, my knee diagnosis wasn’t terrible but getting to the start line without losing the summers fitness might be tricky.
After illness last week, my knee has decided it wants attention now.
Literally. Picked up some sort of stomach bug or food poisoning on Monday and couldn’t shake it until Friday.
Big challenge this week by racing on one evening then an ultra the next morning.
Getting back from holiday feeling sluggish and bloated meant an easy return to it.
Had grand plans of running a lot while away on holiday and keeping some stable mileage going. Didn’t happen.
A nice varied week with a Friday night trail race followed by parkrun then a 23 mile long run was a good mix up.
