Deeside Runners Virtual Race #6: Ben Newe recce
With T
All new to me.
Lovely morning. First half on a mix of grassy paths and half on Land Rover tracks but interest ramped up markedly for second half. Lovely mtb single tracks up to and down from Ben Newe summit. Great 360 deg views. WB overtook us on the way down.
Very stop start for route finding, waiting for T, and admiring the views.

Trail / Terrain Run 1:35:25 [3] 16.17 km (5:54 / km) +408m 5:14 / km
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

Birkenhill Farm, DW, new forest road back across below Tom's Cairn before cutting up through the wood to the top. There are some really nice bits in that plantation but it probably won’t be long before it’s chopped. Down via Balnahard, then then long straight to Finzean House, up to the edge of the caper enclosure and home round Antilly and down to Starrypool.
No hamstring issues other than a very slight ache at times.

Felt pretty good today and had intended exploring that forest road for a while. Gives another Tom’s Cairn option....just need one from the SE now, not that I’d use it that often.

Hamstring more of an ache than anything. Doesnt appear to be much...fingers crossed. Will go carefully for a day or two and see if it turns into anything.


Directing digger driver.

Trail / Terrain Run 33:08 [3] 3.48 km (9:31 / km) +147m 7:52 / km
shoes: Mudclaws bluebackred

Dess DNC - Short
First night race of the winter. Thoroughly enjoyable after stress of a rapid drive home and back again to get a replacement headtorch for T.

Found terrain a little tough after a long absence and walked a lot of the hills in felled terrain. Clean apart from too high at 7. Lack of concentration. In some ways regretted not having done the long.

(Slight (hopefully) hamstring tweek right at the end was the only downer.

Trail 45:00 [3] 5.5 km (8:11 / km) +185m 7:00 / km
shoes: Mudclaws RED

Looked at the plan for DR session at GT tonight and didn't fancy the long hill efforts planned or the overall length of effort required so...

Nice warm day. a tour of Craigmore instead in gathering gloom of late afternoon. Up the south side, down the north, up the east, down the west ..and back across the stubble fields from Torqu. Nice.

Monday Nov 16 #

Road Bike 1:10:00 [3] 27.9 km (2:31 / km) +345m 2:22 / km

Too nice out not to go out.
Round "the fish" clockwise. Worked harder than intended in places. Quite a headwind in towards Finzean.
Brief chat with L&C at the end.

Trail 30:00 [3] 4.5 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Mudclaw 300 Yellow

Academy Run Club with WB and JM:
23 (+3) go to the Castle grounds.
A few drills, a few sprints and most importantly 3 x Manhunt. Hard work that bit.

Sunday Nov 15 #

Trail 58:57 [3] 9.23 km (6:23 / km) +136m 5:57 / km
shoes: Pegasus 35

Intended something longer but nothing there. Just felt heavy and very lethargic so restricted it to a standard loop of Potties and Birkenhill.
