Aqua jogging 45:00 
Knee made painful by impact so no impact, no problems right? Wrong. Warm up was pain free, tried doing a session and knee gradually got more painful, although no way near the pain of running on it yesterday, so only did half a session and then warm down.

Turns out running wasn't a good idea, felt fine for the first 15 minutes or so but then I started feeling my right knee on the impact of every step and it slowly got worse, cut the run short but shouldn't have gone at all.
Strength and conditioning 35:00 
Core and glutes
Knee really bad post-run so couldn't do most of the leg exercises I usually do, or anything that involves bending the knee too much, however it settled down by evening and now I can single leg squat with no problems.
May have had a minor fall on the descent from Ben Nevis, I've done worse descents but must have just stopped paying attention for a moment. Nothing serious but knees are a bit scraped up and swollen still. The impact from Thursday's descent was quite painful so held back a bit and knees were worse afterwards. Also stiffened up massively after spending most of Friday sat on a train. Had 3 rest days in a row now which feels completely wrong when on the whole my body feels fine and wants to run, but I wanted to give my knees the chance to settle down. Still a bit sore but will run tomorrow anyway.
Full day of travelling home.

Stob Ban and Mulloch nan Coirean with Beth. Nice route but would have been nicer if we could actually have seen anything rather than being stuck in cloud the whole time.
