Run 1:07:46  5.89 km (11:30 / km) +371m 8:45 / km
Out on Birnam Hill checking out the first sections of the BUCS courses. Cold (1 degree) but sunny. Bracken down and heather not as deep as I feared. Snow will help, if it ever comes. The forest is really beautiful and feels really Scandinavian/natural. I hope we can have a successful event, www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10157014258011085&...
Run 35:56  4.8 km (7:29 / km) +173m 6:21 / km
Sore calf but too glorious a day to not get out (too cold/icy for a ride) so I nipped up Dumyat, quad track, from the shoulder. Climbing carefully but managed to run all the way (just!). Feeling the Christmas pub! Bumped into Dr Jim (neighbour) at the top - not bad for an Octagenarian!
Run 20:00 
Newton PS Running Club.
Jogging out the woods behind Menteith View. The kids ran one loop as warm up then raced a second loop. I then explained that they were to run it again and try to beat their time. What a rabble today - 31 kids non-stop scream and chatter - I lost my rag on a number of occasions - need to work on my attention control!
One last warm down loop before heading back.
As a session it worked well and most managed to up their ante and beat their previous time (about 4-6 minutes loop).
Mountain Bike 1:00:00 
Sore left calf so took the opportunity to do a night (headlamp) mtb ride of to the Gathering Stone on the new tracks. All rideable and much fun, but still a lung buster on all the climbs. So much fun I went back round from Dykedale. Not surprised to see that the legs were empty second time round :-P
Run 34:44  6.3 km (5:31 / km)
Down to the Tay. Body grumbling, especially my left calf/Achilles.
January is going to be an unhappy month :-(
Run 20:00 
Easy, at work. Feeling better for some resting at the weekend.
Pilates 30:00 
Circuits 30:00
