cycling 1:00:00 [2]

With E - parked at Boghead and cycled Deeside Way to Dinnet and along to Cambus station, turned off onto riverbank path (got quickly and severely dropped by E here on the single track...). Stopped at Sloe bush and picked 2 tubs, never seen such large and juicy sloes - looked almost good enough to try raw, but sense prevailed :-)
Back by riverbank track then Deeside Way. Lovely sunny day.

steady run 1:50:00 [3]

Dinnet - Loch Kinord, old drove road to Cambus, loop at western end, Deeside Way (met SA and then DA on his bike), riverbank path - Dinnet.
First time on that part of river Dee since the floods - utter devastation in places, whole new shingle banks, islands disappeared and new river course appearing. Incredible - need to go for a walk to appreciate it more closely.
Plus spotted some sloes the size of grapes - need to get some!

Intervals 16:00 [5]

4x4+2 on Deeside Way towards Aboyne. Feeling tightness in my chest - from last few days problems.
Legs fine and calfs no pain at all.

steady run warm up/down 32:00 [3]

Home to Deeside way and old start point to east of embankment. Reached Mr Grumpy's gate at 3-35 on 2nd interval so a bit down on distance but its good to start intervals again and even better not to get problems!

orienteering 48:00 [2]

Hanging (23) and collecting (25) controls in Bellwood for after-school club. Lovely wood and almost completely dry underfoot - even ditches are dry just now!

steady run 47:00 [3]

Glen Dye, car park near road junction then up track to SW onto moor turned south then cut back into forest after 10 minutes (not enough time). Back to end of track and down to car park. Feeling good on uphill and only a bit of ashiness in shins/calfs by end.
