Let’s go find some hills

This was actually Wednesday night but I never got around to posting, Dusk was well in effect and there’s something about an angry sea at dusk I love.  Only managed 3 miles but work finishes today for xmas and a new training cycle begins!

A training cycle I hear you cry? What is this?  Well I’ve had an off-season so I thought starting to ramp it all up again meant giving it a tres cool name other than just running a bit more.

But there are plans afoot for 2017.  Warming up in Feb with the trail half in Margam which was my first ever race last year. This should be easy enough and doesn’t require any particular training.

Then in May there is the Preseli Beast in West Wales, I ran the half version of this last year while injured and the beast name is well deserved. This is fell running territory and this year the 24 mile race is part of the Welsh Championships. So that’s what I’m hoping to enter (entries not open yet).  Going to need to train on some steep hills for this one so I’m looking at routes.

Then in August there’s the 32 mile Roseland Cornish coastal path ultra which will hopefully be my first ultra and will include more hills … yay!

It’s going to be an up and down year!
