Gravel Bike 3:19:24 [3] 53.74 km (3:43 / km) +479m 3:33 / km

There's life beyond Deeside.
Went over the hill for a spin round Angus with T.
First a windy but very pleasant inland loop from Montrose including past hordes of small piglets at a pig farm then some real gravelly bits through a pheasant farm. Returned to the coast at Arbroath. Biked through the Abbey and then had a bit of a rest by the harbour for a takeaway coffee when it looked as though the heavens were about to open...they didn't. Don't think they eat anything but fish and chips in Arbroath though.
Back along the coast although to be fair didnt really go close enough to see much of it.

Saturday Jul 4 #

Walk 45:00 [3]

Memorial to Tom’s Cairn, down far side. Bacon roll and coffee at FFS. South drive to Finzean House and back to memorial.
Good stomp. With T.
Out for 2 hours.

Took gravel bike on the regular road loop for a change.

Friday Jul 3 #

Trail 30:00 [3] 5.0 km (6:00 / km) +43m 5:45 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

Bit of a fail and on reflection should have just rested. Especially since it was chucking it down. First real rain run for a good while.
Slowly round through Home Farm, down the main house drive and back over the hill through the plantation but sugar bonk after 20 mins - just drained - and walked up to the top. Disturbed a couple of red deer.

Should have been more sensible and stayed in.

Thursday Jul 2 #

Gravel Bike 1:18:00 [3] 22.19 km (3:31 / km) +176m 3:23 / km

Road to Dinnet and DW to Cambus.

Trail 1:20:00 [3] 6.43 km (12:27 / km) +375m 9:38 / km
shoes: Mudclaws RED

With T
From Cambus, having stashed the bikes, up the single track path to top of Culblean Hill. Rare visit to this hill for me. Nice temperatures, cracking path. Spent a while on top as almost windless. Light showers coming and going. Back down the same way.

Gravel Bike 1:08:00 [3] 21.15 km (3:13 / km) +112m 3:08 / km

Back on the bike and along DW to Aboyne then road home. Racing the heavier showers...didn’t quite make it home in time :-(


Successfully celebrating, and making the most of, and not abusing, the last day of the five mile rule. :-)

Wednesday Jul 1 #


Wandered through the woods up to the camera. Only deer on it.
Legs shot from the last two days. Definitely a day off.

Pre - virtual hill race attempt

Trail race 48:17 [5] 9.01 km (5:22 / km) +331m 4:32 / km
shoes: Mudclaws RED

Deeside Runners Virtual Hill Race #1 - Aboyne Games route
Wasn't going to do this but was talked into it in the middle of a table tennis match this afternoon (don't ask)...well just after it anyway.
Shouldnt have done the 1k intervals yesterday - not ideal prep but what the heck.

Took first 1k steady across the bridge not wishing to expire on the first hill. That went ok and the second hill was probably better then i remember it from the last time I raced it in 2016. Concentrated on keeping the cadence up on the hills and it seemed to work fine.

Only about 2.09 slower than 2016 in the I'll settle for that. Best I've felt a hill race go for a good while ironically.

DW had just finished when I started, BS started a minute or so in front of me, JW was crossing the bridge at the end as I set off, WB was heading out as I came back and then RS and GB set off as I cooled down. All intending a last day race efforet. :-)
