    Smaller and local is the way forward. The bigger the event, the bigger the cost to set up - and the increased likelihood that it's being run for profit. Also, say goodbye to t-shirts and medals if you want cheap.

    Parkrun is an anomaly in that it's aimed at getting people exercising and building a community (as I understand it).

    These also turn up in Aldi/Lidl every now and again for cheap. Mate has one and rates it.

    Think I've finally diagnosed the problem with my OM4, problem with mirror alignment is throwing the focus off. Which is fucking annoying when you get back from a holiday and you've shot shit loads on it. It's been so demotivating that I've still not gone through the photos properly.

    Does anyone use Training Peaks? I've just signed up with a coach (lol, getting desperate, fatboy?), and use that to schedule training etc. Can't really be fucked dropping £90 for the year if it isn't worth it.

    In other news, plodded round the Yorkshire 3 Peaks route the other day. Ended up doing a full marathon distance as you have to take the long way up Whernside when it's not race day.
    I can't say I was inspired by the course, but I'll withhold judgement until I've actually raced it.
    I've also entered some silly races (which is the cause of getting a coach, sheer desperation), with Y3P on the 27th, Kintyre Ultra 2 weeks after that (32 miles and 3300ft I think), and then The Old Counties Tops (37 miles, 10,000ft) a week after that. It's pretty fucking stupid really, but if I take everything as easily as possible, I might just make it round TOCT. If I don't survive, all my running gear goes to whoever gets first dibs on here.

    Little club TT/handicap race tonight.
    Ran better than I did at Nationals or at Ilkley 🙈
    Absolutely buzzing, feels great to be firing on all cylinders - hopefully means my form is improving, rather than just a midweek fluke.

    On a semi-related note, I found it slightly amusing that in the acceptance speech, Alex's partner was thanked by the director before he was.
