Running 6:30:00  53.1 km (7:21 / km) +750m 6:52 / km
Route 52 - a km for every week of the year or something like that. From home by the river bank to Aboyne, cross to S side and along to Glen Tanar, over to Deecastle on SDRd, a few km on the road then river bank to near Ballater, through Pannanich, into village and a stop at the Bothy. Then back along the DW to Tullich, path up the other side to Cambus, over to BoV, round LK, and back to Aboyne along the DW from Dinnet. Sunny day but an icy wind and some slippery bits of track early on. Feeling pretty tired by Ballater, but rest, soup and dry socks helped a lot and picked up well through Cambus and BoV. V tired by Dinnet but it was easy to shuffle back along the DW to Aboyne from there. All in all a grand day out!
