A leisurely loop of Craigmore. One more tree down…at least…for next weeks night race to negotiate. Nic, but not particularly energetic.

ahr:102 max:151

Traipsing around the west end of Potties looking for a lost dibber from the Potties DNC a week ago. Knew it was a needle in a haystack job before we set out, but thought it an interesting exercise to upload the culprits .gpx track to my watch and try and follow it, given it was a lovely "spring" morning.

If the truth be told , unsurprisingly, the track was tough to follow in that sort of terrain and locating a red dibber was always an impossibility.

Nice walk mind.

Trail / Road Run 47:15 [3] 7.82 km (6:03 / km) +32m 5:55 / km
ahr:135 max:158 shoes: Hoka Blue/Yellow

DR 5x4mins/2 on the streets of Aboyne, just like the old days.and, suitably enough, several of the old crew out to “enjoy” them.
880m, 860..the most uphill of them…950, 940, 950. Strangely, found them easier as the session went on. Never enjoyable, but not too bad….which probably means, quite good.

Terrain 2:55:13 [3] 13.89 km (12:37 / km) +1287m 8:37 / km
ahr:115 max:153

Beinn a' Chochuill (980 m) and Beinn Eunaich (989 m) from Allt Mhoille bridge.

The hoped for inversion suggested in the forecast never materialised down Ben Cruachan way. A suggestion that the cloud might burn off on a’ Chochuill was there but it didn’t. Really wintry above about 750m but almost no snow on any of the usual, commonly used, paths. No real need for dobs either..but had worn them just in case. So no views, and no dilly dallying.

Very steep lower part of the path back down to the main track has to be one of the worst to run down. It’s just so steep and eroded.

Kept up a good pace on the up but was very glad of the extra clothing carried once on the ridge.

Just one ptarmigan. And no one.

Orienteering 46:05 [3] 5.66 km (8:09 / km) +231m 6:46 / km
ahr:156 max:180 shoes: Mudclaw 260 Green

Compassport Trophy Men Blue at Faskally
Nice to run against all 50+ for a change.
Pretty clean, losing most to #19 over some rough stuff...not sure why I lost so much. Toiled a bit on some of the surprises.
Pleased with overall 5th on course, and first 60+. Couldn't have shaved off much and certainly not the 1.41 to DR.
Getting back to running well post early Jan virus.
Not difficult but very enjoyable.
