I like Strava for giving me a challenge to keeping me motivated when training on my own up in North Wales.
The latest challenge was to log some vertical ascent over 10 days.
I live in a hilly place so it felt like getting a few metres in would be possible.
After the OMM down in Brecon, I had a week off for half term and managed to get a run in most days. As the week went on the tiredness of a mild infection kicked in and I missed on large run which meant that I missed my target of 6000m.
I did get up and enjoy another stunning sunrise on Mynydd Moel which was probably my last hill run in shorts for a while to come.
Still good for 5th overall in the UK, which given the level of fatigue I’m happy with.
The 16th November is my first Ultra race back down in Brecon again. Not the best preparation leading in, but I’m still keen to see what I can do with the race. As usual, a race report straight afterwards.
