Family outing. Took the ferry from gourock over to Dunoon for a big fat loop of the cowall peninsula over to Loch fyne and then along the coast to Loch eck and back to the ferry.
One real steep climb after about 20km. Then there was a 3.6km monster with 310m of climb. Some nutty gradients and relentless climbing was pretty oof but did to the family what the leaders did to Bernal on the colombier.
Easy cruise up to Strachur before grace and I pushed on along Loch eck back to the ferry.
Great day out - no wind and blue skies all day.

Glentress mtb - great outing up to spooky wood. Shame that Loïc bruni here was getting held up on the descents by someone...

When doing a run on a route you’ve never done it is crucial to study a zoomed out strava map for approximately 8.7 seconds the night before. This is, simply, a must.
Under the A9 and winding along forest roads before a good hike up through terrain up to beinn guilbhinn. Nice views. Down through heather before wiggling along mtb tracks, rides and terrain back to aviemore.
A good laugh although it definitely had serious Hotonnes vibes from our run in France. However I have come to expect this ineptitude from Grace now

Cycled from Aviemore up to Loch an Eilen - was pretty chilly so got shifting to warm myself up a bit.
Then did a really nice loop partway round the loch and then up past Loch Gamhna before coming back to the main loop through the very far north of inshriach - beautiful mist on the loch and so still and quiet out, saw lots of red squirrels.
Then back on the bike up and over to loch morlich before back to Aviemore on the logging way.

Have to say that I am bit confused/worried with hr data over the last few days. Like yes obviously wrist HR is never the most accurate but it just seems that in all the activities I've done that it is consistently higher. I really can't envisage that a week's break would impact my fitness this bad and I certainly feel the same as I did before. Although I did feel a bit tired towards the end of the bike today. Maybe I'm just overthinking it?

The 3 Monadliath munros above Newtonmore with Grace.

Easy gentle up for the first 5k before a tough marshy slog to 8k before a push up to carn dearg. Very gentle 8k along the plateau with some undulations to the next one before a short up and over to the final munro. Descent was quick and short but I was feeling a bit tired by this point.
Sunny, not a breath of wind and clear views for miles - doesn’t get much better than that.

Although as we were driving back to Newtonmore we came across a herd of about 50 cows in and around the road. I tried to pull forward very very slowly without honking in case of one of them went psycho and we were making slow but steady progress till one absolute unit of a cow just starts walking right at us with a look of ‘you’re getting shanked’. I did some pretty Lewis hamilton reversing to get well clear and then we eventually inched our way through when there were only about 10 left. Exciting times

WU then into a 10k steady - felt really chill throughout apart from some rather severe toilet issues

Easy - not believing the heartrate.

Anyway, as promised: the break down of TDF.

Pretty much, Louis and Fin were way out in front after stage 20 whilst AT and myself were pretty close for third place. I already had Sagan and Van Aert in my team and had to choose one between Caleb Ewan and Sam Bennett to replace Roglic.
Spent a good half hour trawling through all the betting websites looking at odds for the sprint and reading through all available previews. I had had Ewan before so I decided to stay loyal and his odds were a bit better.
Then it was a devastating sprint as Ewan was nowhere to be seen and Bennett trashed everyone - nice. Yet I had still done enough to retain a podium place which was pretty beautiful considering how awful my fantasy record has been over the past few years.
Also mad scenes as Dad took 5th ahead of Grace thanks to my genius tip of Max Pedersen
