Friday 7th April

This week started with a short but hard outing to Coniston with Suzanne Budget & Colin Jones. Round the fell race round in a howling gale. Part way round I mentioned to Colin that I had wondered about cancelling the trip in the light of the weather forecast "you could get winds like these on your Bob Graham", he replied. Wrong place for sympathy, obviously. By course record standards it wasn't a fast round but by my own, more modest, standards it was uncomfortably fast - and just what I needed. On Sunday Pauline and I went over to Yorkshire to do the LDWA Blubberhouse Moor 25 and got round in 05:08 with which we were quite please especially given that most of the second half was done in pouring rain. Great route, good event but take your own food (unless you really, really like jam butties). Slow traffic and faulty central heating controller meant missing Thursday's hill session but I went on my own and did the 8 miles I needed for this week's 71. Finally, my weekly average weight is below my target of 154 lbs so I all have to do now is keep it there and so this will be the last appearance of weight and weight loss on the weekly updates.

Last Week
Miles: 71 Feet: 9236 Weight: 153.3 lbs Weight Loss: 1.2 lbs

Next Week
Unusual week because we are off to Galloway for the weekend to have another go at completing the Rhins of Kells, a 20 odd mile long ridge that we were blown and battered off a year ago. Unfortunately the weather forecast is even worse than it was then. We will walk again on Sunday so for the first time for awhile I'll have two consecutive rest days. The start of the week should be as usual but with the Caldervale 10 road race on Friday, Scalfell Pike on Saturday morning and Rivington Pike fell race in the afternoon my next rest day will be a week on Sunday.
