Cycling 1:30:00 [4]

Bishopbriggs, Torrance and through the backroads to Baldernock before heading up to Mugdock Visitor Centre (still closed, though the car park was pretty busy). Had a brief wander around before heading home via Milngavie and Maryhill Road. Quite amazing numbers of bikes out, from families with young kids through to serious-looking types with the full kit. Hope this lasts beyond the end of the travel restrictions.

Avoiding the showers.

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

Auchinloch loop on a gloriously sunny morning. Headwind on the way out, which made for a speedy cruise home. Chain still jumping around despite my best efforts at fiddling with it.

Running 20:00 [1]

Abortive attempt at a run up the as far as the Botanics and decided to turn round. Legs still in pieces after Sunday's efforts, and the muscles round my R hip are also pretty stiff. More stretching required.

Cycling 35:00 [3]

Spin around north Glasgow on a very warm and sticky afternoon. Sweated a fair bit.

Stiff and achey in places, but no worse than expected. Definitely time for an easy week.

Running 1:50:00 [3]

Decided I should do something a bit special to mark Jukola weekend so had a go at Malcolm's 12 Hills of North Glasgow route (see here for details). Basically it's a hilly half marathon, mostly on tarmac but with some off-road bits - and a spooky tunnel! I ran it all on map memory, starting and finishing at the Roberts statue, and took a few different route choices from those shown (Malcolm's challenge encouraged this), though I'm not sure any were significantly quicker. I did manage to lose time in Sighthill cemetery due to not knowing the path layout (running straight across the graves didn't seem a good idea), as well as a couple of micro-route errors.

Pleased to survive it (just) despite tired legs from Friday, and happy with the time which was around what I was aiming for. I reckon it would be faster on a less humid day, and without summer veg. Might have a go in winter to look for an improved time.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [1]

Warm down was a shuffle - really very tired by the end!
