Sunday May 23 #

steady run 1:31:00 [3]

Wanted to do a longer run but not inspired by most ideas, eventually decided to do a layoff Pannanich O-map-ish.
Parked at lay-by on south Deeside road above Torphantrick - more felling there...:-( and headed west along Ballater path - I'd forgotten how lovely parts of this are :-) then into Pannanich at wee car park and west then up alongside wall/fence at west end - a nice little path developing here. Really struggled up the hill with far more walking than I wanted. south edge of Pannanich forest was mostly OK, just a couple of heathery bits but a lovely run down the eastern edge and managed to cross the electric fences without shocks :-)
Into the woods just south of the and - loads of deer trods to follow here.
Felt decent on flat and downhill but very poor on ups. But glad to have done it.

Saturday May 22 #

With S, round the Redburn "feel good" lap. Didn't feel very good running-wise, but lovely woodland and views. Past the Moomin troll houses in hte forest.

Intervals intervals 20:00 [5]

Deeside Way, Dinnet intervals. Took advantage of the nice shiny new surface all the way from Aboyne - Ballater(?). Started at Boghead (edit - not BoddomEnd!) along to Dinnet, usual start at fence corner. 10 x 2+2. Felt pretty tough, so hope it did some good. Definitely the breathing that was limiting things, legs felt pretty decent throughout. Did 4 out and 6 back, got about 20+ seconds further on return 4 and then 2 "bonus" ones at end... struggling a bit on these. Might be able to push a bit harder if had company, but maybe that would just make me blow up earlier?
Warm day and wished I'd opted for t-shirt rather than thin thermal...

steady run warm up/down 34:00 [3]

Boghead to Dinnet and back. Dinnet Garage has extended its yard area and also removed fence at part of back of yard... hope they're not going to expand south across the track.

Tuesday May 18 #

Surveying 4:50:00 [1]

Some Dundee parks. Pleasant day - too hot in sun at lunchtime.
Pooped afterwards - lots of walking and not many details :-)

Monday May 17 #

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

A real in-person class at Banchory :-) Nice to be back and be able to speak to people.

steady run 35:00 [3]

School run-club. Tarland Way and a few sprints from bridge. 18 out with C, RC and L as company. Good session despite rain... most worked hard on it (esp the younger ones!).
