An altogether cooler day after some rain, but quite dry and very pleasant. 9 folk turned out; David, Lesley, Jack, Jan, Bill, Mark, Shirley, Dave I and Rick. Again we had takers for all three distances and we talked about the Ballater 10 mile on Sunday as well as the 5 mile run in Clatt.
26 degrees C in the shade seemed only to fuel the athlete in Jack, Dave D, Lesley, Irene, Morag, Shirley, Fiona, Bill and Mark. Some managed the 5km route with increasing ease; Mark managed a PB around the 8km route on his own while David whipped the rest of us half way up Scolty doing hill speed reps of 2 minutes on – 1 minute recovery. Apparently this is good, but it did leave some of us wondering what repercussions would manifest in the musculoskeletal make-up of those poor souls involved.
