steady run 3:20:00 [3]

With E (well behind him for most of the run tbh) Glenshee, Glas Maol, Tolmount (E added Tom Buidhe), Fafernie, Carn a Claise, Broad Cairn, Glen Muick. Lots of other walkers out and about and Loch Muick track was busy... Got to car park earlier than expected so wandered along road a while waiting for S to pick us up.
Felt reasonable for much of the run, kept to my own pace and avoided trying to stay with E. Tough along Loch Muick at the end but track in good shape which made it more pleasant.
Last did this route in about 1988 or so - went over Lochnagar that time plus the Sagairts. Plus skied much of it in 2000/2001 on a glorious winter day.

cycling 20:00 [2]

Down to Kinker for a bramble picking session (4 litres), then most way back to home, but unusual tyre burst - rim of front wheel failed... luckily when going slowly up a hill. Only a short distance to wheel bike home. new wheels next week I think :-)


Blaeberry picking while E ran up Clachnaben 8L !

steady run 1:48:00 [3]

Davan - Culblean hill- Cambus.
Took it steady - a glorious day, sunny and hot. Legs feeling tired so just plodded up the hill with some stops to take in the view :-)
Breathing seemed much more relaxed today.

steady run 1:00:00 [3]

BCT car park, up big hill to Carn Ferg, a 5 minute break to enjoy the views - 360 degrees, then down to the Gamies track and back. A wonderful afternoon - low sun, warm air a breeze and superb views - can't be many places better than Deeside on a sunny September day :-)
On the down side my breathing was terrible - really struggled the whole way up the hill. Legs not 100% either - still struggling a bit from Tuesday.

orienteering 25:00 [4]

Half of coaching course at Dess Woods - struggling with tired legs from last night's session.

Tuesday Sep 15 #

Intervals 16:00 [5]

Deeside Runners 2x4mins then 8x1 up through the forest. V steep and rough - road shoes not the best!
Dark for return along Firmouth track.

steady run 1:00:00 [3]

Close to running out of energy by end...

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

A real-life class!! A matwork session and felt fairly easy. Nice to be back in the hall.

Surveying 1:30:00 [1]

Surveying school in Aberdeen. Pleasant late afternoon - and some luxuriant brambles so ate plenty :-)
