Sunday Nov 14 #

cycling 46:00 [2]

To/from Potties for club training. Legs tired so a bit of a grind back up the hill :-)

orienteering 22:00 [3]

Control collecting, gently round a few controls picking up markers and getting pine needles down my neck :-(
Pleasant day for coaching, not to cold and some good courses planned by SB. Lots of fun and learning.

Saturday Nov 13 #

steady run 2:30:00 [3]

Lochnagar, had expected a solo plod, but saw 2 runners ahead of me when going across the river. Realised they weren't getting away so gradually tried to push a little and eventually realised I was catching them. It was SP and ME, - caught them just at top of landcover track, so good social run/walk after that to top (saw a few on way up but suddenly at the summit there were about 15 others...
Back down Glas Alt and lochside- SP went ahead and did long way round the loch. I was glad to just plod home with ME. Resisted the temptation of a swim but it was easily warm enough. Had one face plant near waterfall - classic foot scuff and down. Missing a bit of skin on right hand but nothing major.
At end saw JE and one of the other runners who was with him when they passed my on Carn Ealar way back! Small place Deeside :-)
Pleased at how I held up over the distance and even the loch side track wasn't too bad - had couple of wee breaks to ease off leg muscles but nothing too bad. Maybe my big 6zero plan can work ;-)

west to DW and back. The section west of the Dess Road is being renovated :-) and the sets of gates are going :-) :-) :-)
Bye bye nettles and stop/starts!


4 hours later, legs still achey.
