Garscube Harriers. 2 mile w/u 2 'mile 10k +30 1 mile +10, 1 mile 10k, rest w/d. Slower pack so held back for the first 2 mile rep, then smashed the other two (6'07,5'47- uphill). When I stopped leg major seized, need Stirling direction physio recommendations so I can cycle there post work. Hobbled back- kinda happy but annoyed with my leg!

Note

Started helping out at Mugdock cycles on Thursdays to learn more about bikes- the absolute nicest bunch of guys who know so much. My break pads had worn down to the metal lol (longgggg gone), chain is gone, and 4 years of DW40 'love and care' was scraped off. Couldn't recommend the place more. Also apparently I once turned up at work with a tyre pressure of 18... not 120

From David Marshall Lodge, Aberfoyle. Along the bike route (7), to 3 lochs car park etc- basically paralleling Dukes Pass, gained a lot and felt good. Stopped to tie shoe lace at 32 mins and my left calf/ around knee seized, progressing pain until I was limping back down!

Flat sections I was approx 7'23, hill (inc a 10% gradient) 9'40, then down hill with my limping 8'40...Basically was running quite quick until the way back. Hopefully just a spasm no lasting niggle.
