Had an early morning practise round all 3 loops of Whinlatter today. Was a little wet and the trails showing a bit of wear but it was all good. Put a time in of 1hr 49mins for all three loops. Pretty pleased with that. South loop first in 35 mins, then north loop taking it up to 1hr 21 mins, then finished with the blue route. The Giant performed brilliantly, and the Maxxis Cross Mark tyres are grippy and roll really fast. Job done :)

3 weeks to go! My plan is to put 2 more hard weeks of training in, then taper right down on race week. Probably won't do anything for 4 days before other than put the odd mile in on the turbo with no resistance. Got 3-4 more lbs to shift too to hit the 11st mark.

Going to have a fortnight with no training after it!

Until last Sunday hadn't done more than 15miles in a single day since maybe New years hols. Did 1.5 laps of Gisburn last weekend as training though.

Still haven't got the Sintesi ready so may have to use the Kona hack instead!

I've had a pretty poor week training wise due to being busy at work. Got a session in on Monday but not much else. Hoping to get 15 miles in tomorrow and then just keep my legs turning through next week.

If anybody is game, doing an early morning lap of Gisburn tomorrow. Meeting 8am at an odd point on the lap as we start digging the new section tomorrow at 10am - so feel free to stay and dig afterwards.

Meeting where it says "Gate should be open" on this map
