Had a few more reps in mind because legs were feeling much better than expected after yesterday, but soon died off and chilled for a few miles instead. Chucked in 4 x 60s, 30s hills at the end for the hell of it. Core followed, then up and down the seat scrambling on the way up with Jacob and Greg, before jogging back to the flat.

With Oleg for a very chilled skyline, starting off with a scramble up Caerketton crags. A bit worried about incoming rain and tired legs to begin with. The rain hit hard and it was a fairly grim first two hours, with some death-hail rain equivalent on the kips ft. the strongest wind I've experienced. Things were much better on the way back, just fading a bit towards the end as is the norm. Legs pretty much indifferent at the finish to when starting though.

On Kincorth and Tullos Hills in Aberdeen. Wet but warm weather. Legs still not budging from the effect of doing maintenance exercises on top of DOMS. Loosened off eventually to do 16 x 30s strides with 60s recoveries, going down by 15s every 5 because it was taking too long. Stride pace hardly faster than tempo pace today. Ah well, legs turned a bit faster and hopefully do some good. Interesting trails but the various smells from the nearby factories meant I might not be returning there anytime soon.
