More 6 Day kit jiggery pokery in Ballater with AT. Looking better now than beforehand...but not done yet.
Mtn Bike 1:15:00  19.5 km (3:51 / km) +410m 3:29 / km
Road or Mtn bike? Mtn won.
Ground out the climb up Corybeg. Always tough this one. Instead of heading straight down the back headed right, round the back of Lamahip and took the long diagonal track into the Forest of Birse. Then back down the road as far as the main gate to Finzean House, up past the stables and over the top and down home. Very enjoyable.
Warm up/down 10:00 
Streets of Rhynie from the gala field.
Trail / Terrain Run race (Tap o'Noth race) 46:30  7.9 km (5:53 / km) +400m 4:42 / km
Always missed this one in the past so a new one for me. Never even been up the hill before.
Tight right calf for last couple of days but seems more like a bite/sting from when we are at Feardar. Anyway decided to take it easy for that reason. In practice that probably went out the window after 200m. Thought RuthM would be a good pace guide but she was about 50m behind me all the way up. Pretty muddy across the flat saddle with no decent places to run. Probably about 12th to the top, and caught two soon after started on the descent. Aberdeen AAC girl in front all the way down but couldn't catch her. Ended up 9th or 10th anyway and almost certainly1st v60 out of not very many...might even have been the only one. Nice course, fun race.
Trail 37:00  6.5 km (5:42 / km) +60m 5:26 / km
Rough old day.
Out the path, round via the Ballogie House drive; track through the fields past Bogieshiel Lodge drive end and back down the road. Didnt fancy wet vegetation today.
Trail 27:00 
shoes: Mudclaw 300 b/r
Post dismantling of three stiles with AT. Feardar at its finest in the sunshine. Land Rover track then largely elephant tracks via a couple of control sites. Difficult to believe 3000 running here two weeks ago. Glorious.
