Sunday Jan 21 #

10 AM

Hill Running 1:33:51 [4] 7.56 mi (12:25 / mi) +750m 9:29 / mi

Late decision to bin the o-ing plans to get out earlier before the snow hit. Headed up Ben Clench via Ben Ever from Alva. What a difference being able to follow the trail from yesterday - 70mins climb yesterday, 53mins today. Headed out to Ben Buck just to make it a bit harder on the way back. No sign of any trail, a vast sea of untouched snow with not even a tussock poking through. Magic. Ran down Land Rover track which was relatively easy going. Shame most of the snow will disappear this week but there is an awful lot to melt. Started snowing just before we got home and within an hour cars were failing to get up the hill out our street so good call.

Saturday Jan 20 #

10 AM

Hill Running 1:40:17 [4] 6.03 mi (16:38 / mi) +750m 12:00 / mi

Run from Alva Glen up to Ben Cleuch and back via Ben Ever with Dave and Andrea. Expected the conditions to be tough so planned route accordingly. Turned out to be as epic as expected. Passed the last hill walkers ahead just above the Nebit col then had to break the trail. Snow was almost waist deep at times but generally knee deep. Very tough work but great training. Absolutely stunning day too. Been a great winter for fantastic snowy runs.
2 PM

Walking 1:30:00 [1] +200m

Went a bit of a walk at Beecraigs plus sledging on Cockleroi with Hanna. Loads of snow, around 10 inches on Cockleroi.

Run across to AS

Hill Running 31:57 [4] 3.32 mi (9:37 / mi) +320m 7:24 / mi
ahr:140 max:162

Run from the boulder round to the rock step climb up Hyman's Knoll, then over Whinny to Nether. Descended to the road then climbed back over Whinny, then back to the boulder. Soft snow covered semi frozen grass best describes it. Impressed by the odd knee deep drift here and there but snow cover generally not much more than an inch or two. Very tricky on descents so stuck to the rough grass rather than paths as much as possible. Put in some effort on the climbs. Dave going well not far behind.

Road Running 16:58 [3] 2.23 mi (7:36 / mi) +40m 7:12 / mi
ahr:132

Run back to work Not liking the uphill warm downs!

ahr:122 max:132

Out & back on the cycle path with Dave. Felt easy enough. Knee feeling a lot better. Gritted cycle path spot on though enjoyed snowy walk to the station first thing.

8 AM

Road Running 35:50 [3] 5.32 mi (6:44 / mi) +30m 6:37 / mi

Pre-work out & back on cycle path. Ran it as a progression with fastest mile 6.11, so not that hard. Cycle path gritted which was good given the snow.
