steady run 3:00:00 [3]

Lochnagar with RC, KC, ME, PH, KH. Not sure of weather but wore dobbs - good choice, lots of icy patches from quite low down on main path. Ladder was hard packed snow and ice so a bit exciting at times. Wind was also a major issue. Assumed we wouldn't get any further bu PH headed off the recce it and came back to tell us it was fine. He was right - The Lochnagar massif provided a lot of shelter - even parts of totally still air until on final plateau, but even here wind wasn't too bad. Down Glas Alt with a little bit of ice in places but nothing too bad.
Stopped for quick dip in Loch Muick with KC - didn't feel too bad 'cos warm from flogging along loch side track!
Great to make it - feel we really stole the hill today from the weather :-)

steady run 45:00 [3]

With RC into Potarch, up to trig pint then west along small path to fields, steading (great views... what a potential house) across road to west, loop through home farm and back. Very pleasant run, good mix of surfaces (mostly soft) and good chat.

Good to get it done. Calf totally fine - just the breathing that limited me!
