Rest of 2013...perhaps an attempt at the Edale Skyline route: 34km/21.1m with 1373m/4505ft ascent. I've made progress towards this - have a read of my Incremental blog. Time seems to be running out now it's almost Christmas. Will I do it...or reset this into a 2014 this space! UPDATE: I ran out of time! Edale Skyline is still on my to do list and is scheduled for a nice fine day in spring or summer, once I've built up my distance again.

December 2012 - the knee issue is behind me now and I'm back on track, currently in another Build stage of training and getting out in the hills consistently.

November 2012 - starts with rehab for a slight knee injury that's been around for a few weeks.

October 2012- no events in the diary, just working towards a consistent month of running and my strength & conditioning training.

September 2012 - has been and gone!

June, July, August 2012
A new training programme was started for running (read a bit about that here) so there was no racing for me at all from June onwards. I was in London for a couple of weeks (working at the Olympics) at the end of July to mid  August.

  • 3rd - Wormstones Fell Race (6.4km/411m) - entry on the day
  • 24th - Kinder Trog? - a BL category race at 25.7km and with 1064m - my Dark&White partner has asked me to consider entering this one. I'm not sure so will decide nearer the time. It will depend on how much longer running I've fitted in and whether this distance/ascent is possible. Currently it seems just out of reach.
  • 27th - Hope Wakes Fell Race - We were there providing pre and post-race sports massages for the competitors - read the blog here.
  • 30th - Glossopdale Harriers 30th Anniversary Celebrations - fell race and party - done, loads of fun.

I now can't do the following races: Chunal Fell Race (4.8km/305m), Moorfield Road Race (5km), James Thorn Fell Race (8km/491m) - they were originally scheduled for the last weekend of April but for reasons I don't know they have moved the series to the following weekend. I'll be at a family wedding that weekend and am gutted to be missing out on the challenge of 3 races on consecutive days.
