4 PM

Warm up/down 23:00 [3] 3.25 km (7:05 / km)
shoes: Mudclaws RED

At Bogendreip

Trail 38:04 [3] 7.0 km (5:26 / km) +253m 4:36 / km
shoes: Mudclaws RED

Another bash at the Bogendreip virtual race.

Sore legs from yesterday but thought I’d give it another go. Or at least thought I’d warm up and see how I felt over the first couple of km.

Knew it was quicker by a distance to the top, and so it should have been, given that it was a recce yesterday with no warm up. Held a good pace through the second half but surprised to be 2 mins quicker.

Friday Sep 25 #

Trail 40:19 [3] 6.97 km (5:47 / km) +248m 4:55 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

With DW and SW - recce of DR virtual race #4 at Bogendreip
The plan was a recce (second one fo rme) but half way round by mutual decision it turned into a "go for it" for various reasons.
Struggled at the start with no warm-up then for the rest struggled as it was completely eyeballs out. Pleased with the speed of the second half anyway and just maybe I don't have to do it again :-)

Mtn Bike 5:05:00 [3] 59.81 km (5:06 / km) +1399m 4:34 / km

From Aboyne through Glen Tanar; over shoulder of Mt Keen and down into Glen Mark; diversion to Loch Lee; Glen Esk; Tarfside then back via The Fungle and Newmill track.

Pretty chilly out of the sun but smashing ride. Pleasant lunch spot beside Loch Lee. Some long tough climbs and pushed the bike up the Mt Keen track to the top of the shoulder, but managed to ride all the rest. Particularly tough climb from Tarfside to the watershed. Some nice long descents too.

Great day out. Slightly concerned about knee niggle but it didn't develop further so that's good.
