A *lot* of this on our recce today. 2,300m of #upness over 6km, in 34 degrees celsius. Not too shabby.

The good, the bad, the downright ugly, and everything in between. Race season starts at the end of this month, and I’m stoked!

Head in the clouds.

This weekend saw the last of my heavy training for the 100km UTMB CCC in a couple of weeks time. Overall I’m feeling good about what I managed to get done over the summer, focusing on quality, not quantity, and trying not to get sucked into running too many junk miles. I think I timed my peak just right and strangely enough, am looking forward to the taper for once!

Heading to Chamonix at the end of this week and looking forward to some recces and acclimatisation time in the mountains with friends before the race. It’s been a long, hot summer!

Amazing day back up on Tai To Yan and Tai Mo Shan with Tilly and Paul for a last big run before the taper tantrums begin. Best run of the summer and a real confidence boost to be wanting more and still full of beans after 25k and some serious #upness. #trailrunning #hongkong  (at 萬德苑)

Where #trail and #city meet in #hongkong. Today’s 35km grind in a heat index of 43 degrees centigrade was brutal. Late morning, hungover start didn’t help. Reduced to a shuffle for the last 10km and took it all out of me. No more alcohol or meat until after the #utmb14 #CCC! (at Violet Hill, Hong Kong Trail)

Admittedly, #summer in #hongkong can be brutally hot, but goddam it’s #beautiful.
