Mtn Bike 1:46:00 [3] 28.0 km (3:47 / km) +380m 3:33 / km

With T

Had to pick up a bottle of whisky for one of the prizes for Sunday’s TC 10k so seemed like a good opportunity to head out from near the distillery. No sign off Boris or his cronies outside Balmoral.

Lobbed the bikes over the locked deer gate and headed for Glen Muick. Stopped a short while at Inchnabobart then it was a case of trundle down the west side of Glen Muick avoiding all the hydro electric works....and the policeman with his armament at the gates of Birkhall.

Did intend taking in Glen Girnock from Littlemill on the way back but decided against it so it was back along the South Deeside road to the turnoff and up the distillery road from the east end to where we started.


Finished the scything today

Mtn Bike 1:11:03 [3] 19.71 km (3:36 / km) +385m 3:17 / km

Overdid the run and exercises yesterday I think so back to the bike for a bit. A good stint of scything warmed things up a bit then decided to make it a hard effort up Corybeg late on.

Love the lightness of the now 11 year old Helium and for once felt like giving it a bit of welly up the steep hill. As usual various gullied bits from rains, and gravel sections made things a little challenging in parts but it seemed to pass pretty well. Happy as ever to reach the top.

Down into Forest of Birse by the long diagonal track, back along the road to the South Gate of the estate. Back past Finzean House.

Pretty chilly at times. Need to dig out thicker gloves soon!

Tuesday Sep 3 #

Trail 37:43 [3] 5.48 km (6:53 / km) +133m 6:08 / km

Usual Potties tracks. Striding out a wee bit more - testing things a little. Generally good - longest run since the 6 Day - but achilles starting to complain a bit on downhills.

Starting additional strengthening exercises - mixture of hopping and skipping. No issues arising from large numbers of weighted heel drops.

Day off doing other stuff
Usual heel drops and good progress...

Sunday Sep 1 #

Trail 30:00 [3] 4.0 km (7:30 / km)
shoes: Pegasus 31 - blue/black

Backwards round the CC route at Cambus with T whilst K was running from Aboyne to Ballater on DW with SW.
Nice out.
Achilles still maintaining same state. Expecting to do 2-3 months of the heel drops. Alternating easy running with biking seems ok, and provides the active rehab whilst not overstressing the heel area too much. Good to get a decent cardio workout on the bike.

Mtn Bike 37:14 [3] 9.78 km (3:48 / km) +173m 3:30 / km

Potties main tracks. Late afternoon sun in the eyes on the way back.
