Camping at loch an eilan with dad for the weekend - Started at Glenmore, up past green loch and turned up to strath nethy just before ryvoan. Plan was to follow the trail up strath nethy to the bottom of loch avon but after 10 minutes running through deep heather in shorts i can conclude the trail doesn’t exist. New plan needed. Decided on bynack more, which is my new fave munro. Met another runner ryan just after strath nethy so ran with him most of the way. Good company and got a new follower on strava lol. Got the map and compass out and went off the track to get down quickly to lairig an Laoigh as the weather came in, cut through to loch avon then up and over cairngorm back to the ski centre.

4x scolty. I know I didn't do the classic route/order but hey ho. Only set out to do x3 but feeling fine and weather was lovely. Ran the whole way for the training benefit, even if power hiking would of been much quicker. Keen for the x5.
surfing day - 2h of coaching, half of which i was the only one in the water in charge of 15 kids (is that even legal lol) who kept floating away. None of them drowned so im calling that a win. Almost got kebabed by a surfboard multiple times though. Got a good 2h surf in after with kirsty which was lovely but pretty exhausted now.

(pennan-new deer-turriff-banff-pennan) Good fun, some big headwinds but didn’t really mind as i wasn’t bothered about how long i took. Lots of hills but equally a lot of downhills. Stopped for coffee and a much needed break at ethan’s (~45km in). Hit a fat bonk between macduff and gamrie.
