Gloriously sunny, snowy, lunchtime bash up to the monument then into the woods and fields. Found rather too many frozen bits of cow churn coming down away from the Stane and then across to Landrick, which made for some testing conditions for the ankles, but no injuries to report. Much fun.

Doune Night O - "shadowing Jamie" around the Short course (4.1km).
Way too hard for him TBH, so we joined the group of Louise, Kirsten and Rachel who were doing a "talk-O" session. Jamie had forgotten his gloves so I gave him mine and at the end of the first loop in the Ponds left him with the ladies and ran off to the CP to collect my spares. Met them again most of the way round the second loop, then headed off across the road. Got down to the river but J was tiring, started moaning about torch & footwear, so we skipped the last loop in the woods and headed to the finish.
Lovely evening to be out, would have been nice to have been racing! TRIMP 49.4.
Revived Jamie with a steak pie at The Woodside.

Christening the new mountain bike. Bikes have got a lot better since I bought my last MTB, in 1997. Sadly, my legs have rather gone in the opposite direction. Toiled up the Jerah track but enjoyed the grassy track descent down to Lossburn reservoir. Had to hoik the bike over a couple of locked gates but it was worth the effort. Bumped into Jan and Gareth at Cocksburn reservoir and had a nice wee chat (aka rest!!!) TRIMP 112.6

A spot of O after helping at the Plean Park Run. Shockingly bad orienteering. Too concerned about my knee, I wasn't concentrating on navigation at all, and was all over the place. Must have dumped the best part of 10 minutes in two big misses and one vegetation blunder. That, coupled with a jogging pace - not my finest hour.
HR strap kaput again - in the bin. Unimpressed.

Collecting in a few controls for Chris. Knee very stiff until I got going.
