Mountain biking 1:20:00  21.35 km (3:45 / km) +58m 3:42 / km
Dinnet - Ballater on the DW and back the same way. Achilles still niggling, although better than yesterday. Nice easy recovery.
V tender left achilles this morning. Wasn’t aware of it at all over the weekend so hopefully will settle down quickly with a bit of RICE. All good otherwise.
Running 7:58:21  32.35 km (14:47 / km) +617m 13:30 / km
Glenmore - Linn of Dee by the Lairig Ghru with SR and RB. After persistent snow yesterday the chances of getting back to LoD on foot weren’t looking good for today. We put a contingency plan in place for alternative means of getting home, but had time to go and see what it looked like with an option to carry on if conditions were better than anticipated. Heading up from Glenmore there was a fair bit of brightness and we seemed to be gaining quite good height without the snow getting horrendous. I knew it would be worse further up, but assuming conditions on the south side were similar it should be a relatively short (10km ish) section of heavy slog. And we had a tail wind. So we decided to commit and carry on. In short it was the longest snow wade I’ve ever had to do, with soft snow which saw us sinking thigh deep at regular intervals and we soon perfected an alternative snow crawl to make faster progress through the worst bits. And it carried on like that pretty much all the way to the Luibeg (more like 20km). There’s not many people I would feel comfortable with on a day like that, but thankfully we were all able to dig deep and see it through - good humour and good company all the way. Think I’ll remember this one for a long while!
Great weekend all round and happy to have felt physically strong enough for it.
Running 3:00:00  25.41 km (7:05 / km) +330m 6:39 / km
Insh - Glenmore through the forest with RB and SR. Snowing steadily all the way but felt much easier than yesterday without the wind. Good feed at Cobbs cafe at the end. Not looking too promising for getting back to LoD tomorrow....
Running 5:20:00  41.57 km (7:42 / km) +414m 7:20 / km
Linn of Dee to Insh by the Feshie with RB and SR. Pretty testing conditions at times; into a strong headwind pretty much all day and blatters of snow coming through at intervals. Thankfully some sunshine in between too. Last 10km on road and big tracks was tough - legs just felt really sore. All good (type 2) fun :-)
Recovery ahead of some potentially big miles, all going to plan
Running 10:00 
Hanging for ASC in Aboyne
Orienteering 45:00  4.55 km (9:53 / km) +184m 8:14 / km
WeTT Dinnet Muir shadowing EB. Felt awful on jog up to start but enjoyed going round slowly and carefully doing talk-O for much of it. Such great terrain but some tough heather / rock in places.
