Darren, I gave Gary's standing on one ankle exercise ago when he suggested it before - I can see how it works! You think whats' this gonna do, then you close your eyes and practically fall over.
It's amazing how much your balance relies on sight. I do it most mornings now while I'm brushing my teeth.
My ankle was a bit iffy when I got up this morning - fine now.

You thinking about a spot of running then Mike?

I was intending to get out for a run this evening but it never happened as I've been busy getting ready for a trip up to Yorkshire for a job.

Got a social run with the Powy Canicross folk early on Sunday morning though. Always a very enjoyable affair. We'll be doing between 5 and 10 miles on whatever route I cobble together from all the trails around here.

Just got out for a run, bit too hot so more of a sweatfest. New loop, a bit of the 10k I did at the weekend minus the private land. 7.1 miles. I took a wrong turn it was supposed to be nearer 9 miles. Kinda glad I did, knackered now.

Good to get out there though. I love that knackered feeling after a run!

Had an early morning social run with three other canicrossers yesterday. Two of them were fellow Powys Canicross members and the third was Jane, a visitor up from Bridgend.

Jane has only recently done a Couch 2 5k course so not been running very long at all. Despite this she has already competed in several legs of the Furnations Cup canix competition. She has also only run a maximum distance of 10k - well until yesterday when she did a very hilly 8 miles with us! Very impressed actually. It was all at a gentle pace with plenty of stops for regrouping and photos.

Unfortunately I forgot to set my Garmin going. Fortunately one of our other runners, Karen, didn't forget.

All rounded off with tea and cake back in Dolanog.

Good job Karen remembered to record our Sunday morning run

I love your elevation gain. I feel the hills round here when plodding up.
I think yours might kill me.

He he, it's the hills that make it all so interesting. There is one short stretch on that route which is somewhere between a 1:4 - 1:5. It's only about 500yds but it's one of the short tarmac stretches so no give in it at all. Careful pacing is definitely needed on that bit!

Hoping to get out this evening, although the humidity is going to be a killer. Still if I get the chance I'm going.
