Running 1:18:00 [3] 11.0 km (7:05 / km) +240m 6:24 / km

Tight for time, so set off on my own to head up Mortlich, but at Boddomend heard E call behind, so stopped to let him catch. All good until the traverse / climb below Mortlich to the gate. This had been getting progressively overtaken by broom and bracken, but has now disappeared completely into a nightmare jungle. 10' of fight later and we got to the gate at the bottom of the steep climb, but too tight for time to head for the top and no way I was going back the same way. Dropped by the path towards the main Coull plantation to find this not much better at the moment, and a fair bit of gorse thrown in for good measure too. Grim. Eventually down to Aboyne Loch and back along the DW. Shan't be heading back up there before a good dump of snow and only then by the route from Aboyne Loch :-(

Roller skiing 20:00 [2]

Helping at kids club with 3 v novice roller skiiers. Couple of laps at the end on my own.

Running 1:25:00 [3] 8.8 km (9:40 / km) +650m 7:03 / km

KH birthday run up Morven. V relaxed pace and really enjoyed it. Got a bit chilly at the top but soon warmed up on the way back down. Great plan.

Road cycling 50:00 [2] 14.0 km (3:34 / km)

Then over to KH on bikes for bbq and wobble back again in the dusk. Just remembered in time that we didn't have any lights! Managed to avoid the rain showers.

Running 55:00 [3] 7.8 km (7:03 / km) +230m 6:09 / km

With E from Corsedarder memorial. W to caper enclosure then down into the forest to south. Didn't end up doing quite what I planned but it worked out ok. Still think this is top of the "unmapped areas with potential" list.

Mountain biking 1:05:00 [3]

Glen Tanar up to 1/2 way hut, then back round 2 bridges with J and E. Legs feeling shafted at the start.

Running warm up/down 12:00 [2] 2.0 km (6:00 / km)

Jog up track from NW end of Loch Davan rd junction. V short w-d.

Running intervals 36:00 [4] 5.0 km (7:12 / km) +60m 6:48 / km

12x2'+1' reps with E through Redburn. Started on rough path, but diverted into terrain for several of them after E painfully discovered the first set of beehives. Not max effort, but good to do some faster efforts in rough stuff. Mix of flat, ups and downs.

OWS 4:00 [2]

Loch Davan from the N side. Shallow and weedy. Felt cold too. Shame, as the setting is amazing. Maybe try the S side sometime.
