Walking 2:58:00  7.65 mi (23:16 / mi) +760m 17:47 / mi
Walk up Geal Charn and A'Mharconaich from Balsporran Cottages. Mist was down to around 600m so saw little on the hill apart from one break in the clouds at the first summit. Very little wind though so conditions were pleasant. Tracey kept a solid pace on the uphill so good training with the rucksack! Hanna going very well on all the walks.
Walking 33:00  1.4 mi (23:34 / mi) +30m 22:06 / mi
Nice walk along the north side of Loch Vaa and back. Oh to have this on the doorstep!
Trail Running 10:21  1.17 mi (8:51 / mi) +30m 8:12 / mi
Travelled out to Drumguish for Manny's handicap. Jog warm up to the start.
Trail Running race 20:27  3.19 mi (6:25 / mi) +80m 5:57 / mi
First face to face race for 15 months, albeit a handicap. Set off around 20 seconds or so behind Cat which was good as could follow her and judge pace off her a bit. Despite wanting to take the first climb a bit steady, race head took over, and lungs/legs were fairly burning by the top. Passed Cat around halfway and pushed on to chase down another couple of people. Kept pace solid despite feeling a bit overcooked. Pleased with the run. Fastest Joe Mann in 18.54. Nice night for it since the rain held off.
Trail Running 10:38  1.16 mi (9:10 / mi)
Warm down jog.
Road Running 21:49  2.38 mi (9:10 / mi) +50m 8:36 / mi
Steady run with Hanna round local roads/trails followed by 6 x 80m strides.
Walking 1:50:00  4.66 mi (23:36 / mi) +330m 19:21 / mi
Walk at Kingussie round the side then up and down Creag Bheag. Planned descent off the west dude was aborted amongst the Heather. The path shown on the OS map definitely doesn't exist where it is shown. Very wet which made the stone step descent very hazerdous for Tracey with her poles.
Trail Running 37:38  4.65 mi (8:06 / mi) +70m 7:44 / mi
Steady run out the Speyside Way, cutting across to the ring cairn of Granish, then back.
Walking 50:00  2.5 mi (20:00 / mi) +150m 16:52 / mi
Walk with Hanna in the woods at the Slochd while Tracey walked over Burma Road and out to the Slochd.
Trail Running 2:13:38  14.12 mi (9:28 / mi) +540m 8:28 / mi
Ran from Coylumbridge up the Lairig Ghru, turning at the cairn below Lurchers Crag, then back again. Cracking run in bright, slightly warm, sunny conditions, though very breezy at times. Path seemed pretty rough in sections on the way up but felt much better running down it on the way back. Some cool snow fields and tunnels in the glen bottom. Felt fairly solid formwise. Had to remind myself to stop for a drink near the end since I'd carried it!
Walking 3:13:00  9.53 mi (20:15 / mi) +600m 16:56 / mi
Family hillwalk up Meall Chuaich via the usual route. Had been heading to a couple more of the Drumochter Munros but the forecast had got progressively worse, and was looking a bit grim, so changed plan to reduce time up high. Was wet on the walk in but we got lucky in the hill and it was just a bit breezy. Made good time up the hill, which was pretty boggy lower down. Top was mist free, just. Rain returned on the walk back out. Really enjoyed it.
Trail Running 49:20  6.23 mi (7:55 / mi) +100m 7:33 / mi
Run out via the Speyside Way and back, keeping it fairly easy. A few showers, but fairly mild. Felt OK.
Walking 2:03:00  6.53 mi (18:50 / mi) +560m 14:52 / mi
Family walk from Lynwilg to Geal-Charn Mor via the Burma Road. Wanted to do a straightforward hill. No issue with snow since it had melted back to damp patches. Misty and breezy on top, and another nice atmospheric day. No one else out early so had the hill to ourselves.
Orienteering 55:00  2.5 mi (22:00 / mi) +60m 20:29 / mi
Went to Loch Vaa for a stroll, and did some orienteering practice for Hanna. Downloaded an excerpt of the map onto the phone, with a bit of a Black course on it. Used a couple of controls and some other features to try and explain some techniques for Orange courses (mainly attackpoints). Will be good once she picks it up again after not much in past couple of years. Loch Vaa area superb for wondering off the paths.
