Hill run with Gregor above Crianlarich: Beinn Chabhair > Beinn a Chroin > An Caisteal.

Decided to go for a long hill run on Saturday to take advantage of the good weather. Beautiful, sunny day. Excellent views. Good running on ridges with the odd scrambly bit.

Left leg felt a bit tight on the way down so it was slow going on the descents. Had a long session on the foam roller this afternoon to help.

Another terrible night's sleep, felt knackered and creaky throughout the run. Managed to keep pace, but it felt like a challenge.

Didn't sleep well last night, sweating and slightly feverish. Feels like I'm coming down with a cold so decided to miss the cycle today.

Kaim Hill Race - beautiful spring evening with great views over to Arran.

Started out at what felt like 10k pace. Was in front of the pack for the initial 400m of road but lost places when the hill started but lost a few places once the hill started and settled in to the top-10 just behind Gwyn Bellamy.

The ascent was a lung and thigh-burster, I'd forgotten just how difficult hill-running is. Traded places with Gwyn on the way up, got to the cairn about the same time and managed to open up a lead on the descent. All went to shot when I had to stop and tie my shoe-laces half-way down, allowing Gwyn to shoot past me and open up a gap which, despite doing some of the best descending of my life, I couldn't quite close. By the time we crossed the burn and got back on to the track I knew I wouldn't catch him so lost heart a bit. Finished strongly on the road section. Finished in 8th place with a 15s PB.

Really enjoyed my first hill race in nearly 10 months. Stupidly forgot to stop my garmin so not sure at the moment what my time was. Felt strong throughout.

ahr:147 max:174 shoes: Adidas Supernova Sequence 8

Lunchtime trot along the Clyde. Stopped to do 10s hill sprints on a short slope by one of the boat houses.

Legs felt heavy and I felt tired; the effects of the weekend and a terrible night's sleep.

ahr:156 max:175 shoes: Salomon Fellraiser

Wasn't able to go for a cycle today - went for a brief trot around the Kilpatricks with Simon looking for a new race route.

Legs felt stiff after the weekend, was descending like a klutz.

Up Glas Tulaichean from Spittal of Glenshee with Rob Hamlin and David Fulton.

Did a loop taking in the tops on the west side of the glen, rough tussocky going on the way back down. Sunny for the most part but cold on top.
