1 PM

Running warm up/down 20:00 [3] 2.3 mi (8:42 / mi)
shoes: Kalengi Eliofeel Trail

Good warm up before hill race.

Running race 41:20 [5] 5.7 mi (7:15 / mi)
shoes: Kalengi Eliofeel Trail

Jean Carr Hill Race, Fochabers. Pleased with my run as I was only 20 seconds slower than when I last ran this race two years ago. However the course is quite different now with much less running on forest roads and more on narrow, muddy, twisty paths through the forest.

Avoided getting dragged along by the mad dash through the town to the foot of the hill. Got in to a good steady pace going up the hills and overtook four other runners. Got to the top feeling I had put just the right amount of effort in to the climb and launched myself down the hill. Near the foot of the hill just before we got in to the town I was overtaken by a youngster I'd overtaken just before the summit. He was moving too fast for me to hang on to him so I had to let him go.

A great race and thoroughly recommended.

9 AM

Running warm up/down 8:00 [3] 1.0 mi (8:00 / mi)
shoes: Kalengi Eliofeel Trail

Warm up before Parkrun.

Running race 19:35 [5] 3.1 mi (6:19 / mi)
shoes: Kalengi Eliofeel Trail

Mrs P was keen to do the Alness Parkrun having heard good things about it from Marsela so we gave it a go. Really nice course but quite wet and muddy in places after the overnight rain. Good fun running out in to the Cromarty Firth on the old Yankee Pier.

Mad start across the grassy area with lots of people going way too fast as usual. I think they were trying to get to the narrow path after the wood in a good position. I was 15th at the start of the wood and passed 8 before the narrow path. Got held up behind another runner as far as the bridge under the A9 then went past him and another two (including Parkrun tourist Roger from TVOC) between there and the finish.

Reasonably happy with my run and feel okay for tomorrow's trail / hill race (I hope!).

Running warm up/down 5:00 [3] 0.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Kalengi Eliofeel Trail

Short cool down jog. Both my heels quite sore, no idea why.

Recovery run on the trails in Torrieston Forest. Breathing not good.

1 PM

Orienteering 47:00 [3] 4.8 mi (9:47 / mi)
shoes: VJ Supra

Ran round a Green Course in Roseisle which Mrs P ran three years ago. Decided to run all the legs straight to ensure as nuch time as possible in the terrain and to take my time to make sure I navigated properly. All okay except one of the bridges over the horrible ditch in the middle of the forest seems to have disappeared so I had to double back to another bridge.
Feeling a bit broken today with a few aches and pains so an easy day planned for tomorrow.
