Longer tempo run on the Deeside line. Plan was to run the first half slightly quicker than steady then pick it up on the way back. That plan went out the window early on as there was a strong tailwind on the way out and I was going a lot faster even though it was slightly uphill. Felt really comfortable so just went with it. After turning around at 11km it became a lot tougher so was struggling to maintain the pace even with downhill! Grabbed my bag and a much needed drink at 22km then turned back up the line for another 5km to finish off. Happy enough with the run, the average pace was fine although I wanted to start slower and finish quicker.

Death march back home up hillhead road and through Countesswells. Seemed a good idea to run back instead of getting the bus but it was grim. So thirsty and hungry and uphill all the way. The second half got better though.
