Ian Hodgson Relay 2011
I made a little video on my pocket camera
Fell off the face of the planet for the past three weeks, almost entirely due to work.
This weekend I managed to escape to the Lakes to run the Ian Hodgson Relay over leg 4 with Otley's resident fell goat. His relentless climbing put me to shame, but a hamstring problem meant that he was unable to enjoy the descents perhaps quite as much as I did. A tough course, but at 92 minutes it was manageable.
Well done Otley. 49th overall. The results are here. Personally I was pleased that we managed to put out a team and would encourage all of my club mates to think about giving this event a stab. It's like a Dunkirk running jamboree cum festival Sunday atmosphere kinda thingy. Quite emotional. Very unique.
Aside from a good rest, weeks 8 and 9 were virtual write offs training wise, but I managed to knock out 7219 feet of climb over 9:12 hours in the week just gone.
Itching to return and get some serious winter training under my belt.
Onwards and upwards.
PS in a moment of madness this week I entered the Paris Marathon - next 15th April. Bit of unfinished business to resolve.
