w/c 24 November - Still getting ready....

Ok, ok now i can start training.

Dates have now been sorted, and it's going to be May, not June. May 22/23 2009 to be precise. Also, a spate of three weekends in a row of being away and seeing friends (and not really training) has been and gone. Whilst that's been really nice, it really is time to start training for the PBR.

I;ve done a schedule which is pretty demanding. If i can get out and do this, it'll mean I'm physically ready. It'll also mean i'm in possession of route knowledge too, much of this time is going to spent out there in Snowdonia on that testing route.

The 10,000 feet per week maxim will be met and hugely exceeded too. This time, I'll be doing far less road running and will get onto the railway and Moel Famau, even in the dark. That way I climb more feet earlier and reduce the impact of road running and the chance of injury.

Here's the plan, sort of...

Next week's goal - 5000' feet of ascent, and a good run out at the Cardington Cracker on Sunday.
