Saturday Oct 17 #

Walk 3:45:00 [3] 12.0 km (18:45 / km) +800m 14:04 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

Fionn Bheinn from Achnasheen with T and K on the way to Torridon.
Lots of bog and pretty uninteresting until up by the corrie rim. A bit of sun on top but not great views although quite atmospheric. Loads of deer about to complement the pine marten and red squirrels on the way over.
Just managed to sneak in a late coffee and cake in Achnasheen cafe late on.

Friday Oct 16 #

Trail 47:30 [3] 8.62 km (5:31 / km) +230m 4:52 / km
shoes: Pegasus 35

Back to Craig Leek again this time to help K have a bash at the virtual DR race.
Set off 10 mins before her and trotted up to the junction at 3.5k and waited. Ran up to the watershed with her and pretty much waited there until she came back off the hill (having lost a minute or so in deeper heather). Could barely keep up on the way down to the cp. Pretty weary from yesterdays effort but nice to be out in the fantastic colours.

Thursday Oct 15 #

Warm up/down 11:04 [3] 1.75 km (6:19 / km) +39m 5:41 / km
shoes: Pegasus 35

Just a warm up, no warm down. With SW from Keiloch.

Trail 56:27 [3] 10.71 km (5:16 / km) +358m 4:31 / km
shoes: Pegasus 35

DR Virtual Race #5: Craig Leek
Coordinated with SW doing a recce of the route. Worked well to have a "pacer" on the up.
Worked hard on the outward and was afraid had gone out too quickly but settled into the hill and it wasnt too bad. Think we got the best single tracks near the top at least on the up but missed a little coming down. Pretty much gave it everything on the way down full length tumble in the heather early on.

Tuesday Oct 13 #

Trail 30:00 [3] 6.7 km (4:29 / km) +70m 4:15 / km
shoes: Hoka Blue/Yellow

2 x 15 mins at DR Glen Tanar session
Uphill for first15 mins towards Mt Keen then after 1 mins, 15 mins downhill back the way. Left behind on the up but no one caught me on the way back.

Not a sociable DR night and certainly not a session I’ve done with DR on a Tuesday ever before. Maybe I enjoyed it in a weird sort of way. Not sure. Certainly feeling it now.

Warm up/down 13:00 [3] 2.1 km (6:11 / km)
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

Monday Oct 12 #

Nice to have company on a pretty dreich day. Also nice when an O beginner has already agreed to take in the TD5 tapes. Thanks GH. Didnt want to run any more today.

Sunday Oct 11 #

Trail 1:05:00 [3] 8.11 km (8:01 / km) +327m 6:40 / km

Tour of the Balmoral cairns with K
Just the ones on the eastern hills but very pleasant. Social run. Lovely colours.

Coffee and the obligatory extra in the Tarmachan after. Nice too.
