12 PM

Ski Touring 1:00:00 [2] 5.11 km (11:45 / km) +267m 9:19 / km
ahr:89 max:118

Wee kit test for E’s new touring set up on Langgadlie. Up the long way by the track then straight down through the fields. Headed back up again through the fields but stopped for ~45’ to construct a ramp across the midway fence. Then on up to the top and back down. Deep soft snow - nice but found it difficult to get much beyond my racing snowplough again. Really do need some downhill lessons sometime.
Surprisingly weary after yesterday’s outing although it didn’t feel like an effort at the time.

Ski Touring 4:00:00 [2] 19.28 km (12:27 / km) +873m 10:09 / km
ahr:104 max:145

Tour de Feughside hills inc CPs 85, 88 and 90 with SS. From FoB Kirk A-c starting with Gannoch, Tampie then over the other side of the Fungle to Hill of Cammie and Cock Cairn. Started off lovely, but cloud clinging to the tops and got caught by a nasty squall coming through on the way to HoC. Had planned for Battock too but would have been pushing daylight and snow was tricky in the low vis stuff. Main descent back down the track from CC was on lovely soft snow and v pleasant. Good day out with lovely company.
6 PM


Right knee still a bit sore. Didn’t feel it at all out skiing but sore after.

7 AM

Running 1:00:00 [3] 10.1 km (5:57 / km) +220m 5:22 / km
ahr:155 max:183

53 4 53 Pt 1 with ME. Learney Hill. Just about light enough at 7:30 without the torches. Couple of cms snow on the tracks giving better grip than the underlying ice and nice running. Lovely start to the day.
10 AM

Running 1:38:03 [3] 14.21 km (6:54 / km) +227m 6:23 / km
ahr:139 max:161

53 4 53 Pt2 with J. Dinnet Muir and CD from Dinnet, taking in the cross slab and BoV CPs (#21,22). Lovely as always. Feet a tad sore by the end and hammie niggling a wee bit, but otherwise all good. Lovely as ever.
12 PM

Running 1:09:00 [3] 10.29 km (6:42 / km) +229m 6:02 / km
ahr:153 max:172

53 4 53 Pt 3 with RB. From her house along the river then up onto Breda Hill. Feeling ok once I got going, although hill was a bit of a struggle! More good company and chat making the kms fly by easily enough. No major aches or pains during this. Still in dobbs, but switched to a different pair.
4 PM

Running 1:09:00 [3] 10.82 km (6:22 / km) +181m 5:53 / km
ahr:136 max:155

53 4 53 Pt 4 with SR. From Aboyne out round the Loch then over into Coull and back by the TW. Stiff at the start, but felt pretty good later in the run! Decided to give the feet some more comfortable shoes and got away with it no bother - just one wee icy section on the TW. Lots of smiles.
5 PM

Running 1:03:00 [3] 7.81 km (8:04 / km) +211m 7:06 / km
ahr:127 max:159

53 4 53 Pt 5 with BS. Last but not least. From Potties up to Ordmore CP (#23) then back across to Potarch side. Endeed up doing just out and back on the big track to get the distance. Only run of the day where ice was an issue and it certainly dropped the pace wearing comfy shoes. Otherwise feeling really not bad for the end of a long run.
53.2km, ~1100m climb and ~6h run time on slightly snowy paths and tracks.
Fab day with great company :-)

5 PM

X-country skiing 1:25:00 [3] 10.11 km (8:25 / km) +228m 7:34 / km
ahr:106 max:151

From Suie out onto Mire of Midgates and Badingair Hill. Set off with J and E but the latter was faffing and whinging and I didn’t have the energy to deal with it, so carried on alone and never met up with them again! Bit slow heading out, but whizzed back in good time once I knew where I was going and started to get more relaxed with the skis.

X-country skiing 25:59 [3] 3.6 km (7:14 / km) +64m 6:38 / km
ahr:112 max:150

Back and forth to stay warm whilst waiting for the boyz - had thought I was going to be in trouble for holding them up !
