Thursday night- A nice trot up Alphin to watch sunset over Manchester. Fairly steady with a bit of route variation to add on distance but not anything all that interesting just mileage and ascent in the bank
Saturday- Early training in Mytholmroyd didnt go down too well after a hectic night down Leeds. Hill reps session. Unfortunately my quads were pretty much screwed yet again and this is causing me a real worry for the lakeland and welsh races although part of me thinks it is ascending without previous momentum that causes the pain so hopefully with a long warm up and road section I should have a flyer at Anni Wa.
Sunday-Chew Valley Skyline duties and a long run.
Ashton to Hartshead Pike then down through the brickworks in Grotton up over wharmton. Onto the canal and up Alphin. Ditched my rucksack at the top and went for a run out to Chew Reservior to see the front runners then back over the peat to Alphin before a jog back down to dovestones.
