Running 44:00  6.4 km (6:52 / km) +200m 5:57 / km
Stopped off in Rothes for an easy run on the way home. Found a nice wee route out round some woodland and back the other side. Nothing in my legs and in need of lunch, but good to get out.
Running warm up/down 35:00  6.4 km (5:28 / km) +30m 5:21 / km
Jog to start of intervals and back from top of the hill
Running hills 30:00  3.0 km (10:00 / km) +250m 7:04 / km
Glen Tanar with DR. 15x1'+1' hill reps. Up the east end track. Felt like I had nothing in my legs from the start and wasn't really able to reach max effort. Hopefully still a worthwhile effort though. Good turnout.
Running 20:00 
Short jog round the woods to test the knee. Much improved.
Knee much improved today, but still some inflammation. Slept better last night too :-)
Running 3:30:00  24.0 km (8:45 / km) +1000m 7:14 / km
Long run with J from Pass of Ballater up Tullich mast track, over to Morven lodge, loop up and round hill to north then back over to Pass of Ballater.
Some days you just don't have it, and this was one of them for me. Feeling pretty ropey from the start (2 consecutive nights of poor sleep) and considered turning straight for home once we got to ML. Sadly, I talked myself into doing the extra loop. The climb was fine (some good pole practice) but at the top my left knee started hurting quite badly (inflammation from yesterday's bruising). It only got worse from then and ended up a very slow painful hobble down the last hill. J kindly went ahead to bring the car to the track end for me.
Don't think it is going to be a long term problem with the knee, just need to get the inflammation down and rest it for a couple of days. Sleep-wise maybe need to avoid alcohol, and get to bed at a sensible time without work on my mind.
Running 35:00  5.0 km (7:00 / km) +100m 6:22 / km
Easy trot checking MapRun course. Managed to trip on a tree root and do a full-length splatter. Thankfully just superficial knee damage to show for it.
