A lovely day today and I had a risk assessment for a family ride to do. Sometimes things just work out right. It was so nice I even added some extra miles to my commute on the way home.

A couple of car loads headed down from Garage Bikes to race the winter event at Channock Chase. With someone in most races we had a fab day, not sure cake is the best pre-race prep but I did enjoy my race and I finished 11th. Was very odd racing for only 15km!
The day after I got to see more of Cannock, always nice to ride somewhere new.
Thanks to @Rocketdog for the photo.

Yesterday's audax made me feel very slow and I was sore at the end. It started seven miles from home so I rode to the start. Usually it had a rolling start and I left at about 9:15am. It felt like I was being constantly being overtaken and only for the last few miles did I ride with anyone. Still good miles in the legs and I rode 82miles with 2000m of climbing.
I haven't been doing much and the half marathon, which is actually 15. 5miles is only a couple of weeks away. So today I went for a longer run. It took me an hour and a half to cover 6.5 miles. All I can say it was muddy and hilly and my legs were tired.
I met Ali st Hassop station cafe for lunch and hot chocolates.

Been a while since I've been on my mountain bike with having a cold and then starting a new job so I headed out for a easy two hour bimble. I explored a new cheeky trail which was lovely although I had to scramble over some trees that had come down. I also did Baslow Edge, creeping past the horse riders in the riding school after coming down the footpath. Heading through Froggatt I saw I cool area where there had been sort of fire. After taking a photo a women coming out of adjacent house in her car asked if I wanted something, turns out it was her land. Oops.
