Running 1:45:00 [2] 9.54 km (11:00 / km) +592m 8:24 / km
ahr:117 max:163

Really feeling it this morning! Heading over to Dunkeld, so stopped at Spttal of Glenshee and headed up Ben Earb with N for company. Walked the climb as leisurely as possible, but still feeling the effort on some stupidly steep slopes. Had originally planned a longer loop out along the ridge but no energy for that, so dropped fairly rapidly to the track leading back through the forest. Jogged a few bits, but generally a tired shuffle.
9 PM


Not too surprising I’m feeling it, given weekly distance and climb. Bit of recovery needed during this week.

Dubh Gleann horseshoe with KH - Beinn a Bhuird, Beinn a Chaorainn and Beinn Bhreac. Steady up the main climb, neither of us feeling too perky, but passed a few folk - more than I’ve ever seen up there before I think. Off the North Top to the west with nice running initially, but soon turned very rocky. Bit of bog land then a steady climb up onto BaC. Even more surprised to meet another 3 folk on this summit and a further 2 approaching! Feet complaining quite a lot by this stage and regretting the Xtalons with so much rocky ground. Seemed a long trudge across to Bhreac though moderately runnable terrain with occasional bits of trod. Descended fairly steeply off the top down to the river and then had a real slog through deep heather and along the river bed back to the bikes. Disappointed that foot nerve pain had returned seemingly as badly as ever, but otherwise a great circuit and grand outing.

Couple of barefoot laps of the Green. Feet starting to feel better from recent tlc, and think this is good for them now too. Love the tingles after :-)

ahr:111 max:145

Return to Glen Muick by straight(ish) line route. Directly up the steep climb towards Loch Brandy feeling particularly unlively, but at least there was no need to attempt to run. Dip in LB woke me up for sure…. hands started to go numb the instant they hit the water. Warmed up again on the climb up from the corrie, starting to feel a bit more alive. From there we were expecting a long off piste slog, but in practice there was mostly good running on shortish grass - first across to Wolf Hill, then following along the headwaters of the Mark. Lovely bit of flat meandering stream with grassy banks, only slightly squelchy and plenty of bits of deer trod. Made a small diversion to check out the Shielin o’ Mark, then just a short trudge over the hill to join the path back down to Glen Muick.
Good couple of days out and not feeling too trashed at the end. Glad we did it this way round for various reasons tho!

ahr:126 max:173

Glen Muick - Glenclova via Jocks Rd with J. Along Loch Muick side and up the lightening strike then over to Bachnagairn. Then took the high path over to Jocks Rd - a section new to me. Made a short detour to the top of Cairn Lunkard before dropping to the wee bourach shelter and a lunch stop. Nice run down to the forest but then encountered the aftermath of storm Corrie across the paths on both sides of the glen. Faffed a bit before climbing above the carnage on the north side and picked up a ride which gave ok running. Eventually escaped back to the path and made a comment about successful navigation of the mess shortly before hitting another patch! Then just a bit of a tedious slow plod down the road to the hotel. Showery and breezy at times but bits of sunshine in between too. Good day out and nice to reach some comfort at the end. Legs holding up ok.

ahr:136 max:189

Easy paced CoM with KH as we were both feeling the w/e in our legs. Got really quite grim on top and was wearing all the (somewhat minimal) kit that I took. Wind was particularly brutal! Nicer jog back through the forest with the wind behind us.
