Re: Teravail Ehline 27.5 x 2.3 tyres

Very nice tyres, run them in 29 on my Spearfish. Like a slightly faster more grippy Nano.

Feet, miles, pints. Anything else and you can go live in France ;-)
How's that blue passport going for you Dave? :wink:

Euro in blood and bone - even if our daughter was born in Halifax...she's only getting a burgundy passport. One of the perks of being blow in i guess ;)

Re: Family Size Inflatable Tent Recommendations.

Decathlon one here - used it a lot in the past 2 years. Has stood up to some big wind while other tents were flattened around it.
The new ones with the dark lining are great if you want to sleep in late and miss the nice part of the day ;)

Re: Today's Run

I like that you use feet for height to make it bigger ;) It's not possible for me to do a run that flat from where I live. Even running to the canal to run I'll do 35m of descent/ascent! Let alone counting the lock gates and their "massive" altitude gain.

Re: Today's Run

Well needed recovery week. While distance per week has only been 70km or so, the vertical and nature of only training on fell over winter is quite debilitating! Last three weeks really ramped up.

40mins on easy trails (pretty buff singletrack), 5km and 250m of vert.

Re: Today's Run

Similar here Dave. I held off until much later in the day than normal and went round a route that you're only going to find locals on. Was blissfully empty until I ran back through town. Massive groups wandering around together. The line of cars to drive into town was absurd.

Re: Today's Run

Agreed, today has been beautiful. Shorts, t-shirt, socks shoes and a cap. Nothing else required, nothing else brought. 40mins uphill to the highest point. Stood there for 5 mins in the sun and silence. 5km winding descent back to town.

1h 10m, 11km, 450m of up and a lot of time spent smiling.

Re: Today's Run

Great run today, nearly foiled by lack of sleep - damn you full moon and clear sky making the room too bright! Woke up to the valley in an inversion, 5 degrees, but no wind. Brew, second brew, opt for shorts despite the temp, get dropped off at next town down the road while wife and daughter go off ...

Re: TPT Bivvy Spots Between Glossop & Barnsley

There are a few (wife used to live in Barnsley *shudder*). It's a pretty busy trail over a lot of it, so you'll not necessarily get a properly quiet night.

Re: Today's Run

Well that was brutal. 47mins 39seconds (club virtual champs so that matters!) with 7.8km and 381m of up. No top end speed any more after all this ultra training, I can run fast on the flat and motor along on the up. But running fast on the up....no, this is not a thing. 4hour run tomorrow, then 90mi...

Re: Today's Run

Lovely run last night. FInished my last lesson of the day and got out the door straight away. Sunshine, first real sunshine of the year. Shorts, light T-shirt and a windproof. Gloves on for the first 15 minutes until my hands warmed up. Up into the sunshine, along with a tail wind, stop to stare at ...

Re: Today's Run

Very personally dependant. My legs and head run hot, my hands and torso cold. Always awkward.

I tend to dress inappropriately and change as I go along. But as a fell runner I tend to have a bag of some form 90% of the time.

Re: Today's Run

Opted to ride yesterday, so a slow run today. Took in one of the closer hills 380m in one quick (steep) burst. The rest was nice and flat. Easy hour.

Yes, it's why the images that have survived are such an important source. This image bar none shows the scope of the expedition before they even went there. The size of the boat in comparison to nature is excellent. Even better when you think about how heavy the camera was he used to take it (20kg i...

Re: The worst journey in the world

Re-read this over Chirstmas break, it is a very good (if harrowing) historical account.

Currently reading The Endurance by Caroline Alexander, has some amazing photography by the expedition photographer Frank Hurley during Shackleton's "adventure".

Re: Today's Run

75 mins before food, I do like fasted runs, should do them more. Went out at a reasonable pace enjoying the first real Spring morning we've had. No wind. Just birds. Was wonderful.

11km, 300m of vert.

Re: Today's Run

21.6 reasonably brutal kilometers today. Windy, wet, and sodden ground. Add in an overly active brain, a wife with a cold and serious dream twitching last night, and 3 hours "sleep". I was not looking forward to a run today. Managed to drag myself out of the house eventually, canal to start to avoid...
