Sunday Aug 18 #


rest day, tired. Gardening and berry picking :-)

Saturday Aug 17 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

Keiloch car park to Glen Slugain, mostly fine but a few walks near end on steeper/stonier sections.

steady run 2:15:00 [3]

Glen Slugain to Beinn a"Bhuird south top with S, JH, SR, RB & BS. Chilly wind and rain on ascent then a nasty hail storm on descent. Felt pretty strong on climb but starting to flag on return.
Only had t-shirt and waterproof top/trousers, could have done with a thermal...

cycling 33:00 [2]

Glen Slugain back to Keiloch. Mostly a lovely coast back down the hill, with tail wind :-). Hands a bit crampy from gripping brakes - need to tighten brakes to reduce play in levers.

Friday Aug 16 #

steady run 34:00 [3]

Steady lap of Dess Woods. Legs feeling tired from intervals but only a tiny niggle in lower left leg - inside of calf - possibly from intervals on slightly rough path yesterday.
Great views from top of felled area - such a superb place to live and train.

Thursday Aug 15 #

Intervals 18:00 [5]

Lap of Loch Kinord with S. 6x3+1. Felt really strong even if not very swift. No leg or back pains - I'll take that! Probably the best I've felt in an interval session for a long time (maybe not going hard enough...?).

steady run warm up/down 29:00 [3]

jog to start and back from end, plus a bit extra to catch S after picking red-currants.

Wednesday Aug 14 #


rest day, plenty of gardening and a bit of chainsawing.

Tuesday Aug 13 #

steady run 1:13:00 [3]

Deeside Runners Gle nTanar, round back of Baudy Meg. Took steady with S, legs tired but also back not happy (lower left) after chain sawing. Very tense early on trying to protect the back but it was fine and running quite smoothly by end.
Back fine overnight - in fact best its been for a while!

Monday Aug 12 #

cycling 50:00 [3]

Road biking (making sure E doesn't get too much hold of my old bike!), from Glen Dye to home via Corsedarder Hill and Potties. Hold up in Kinker as the coos were moved from fields to field across the road (though they were not moving very much when I managed to get past!).
Legs felt OK, but gears so high on a road bike = hills are hard!
