Day 22: An 11 km run around the local roads and up the forest track in Belladrum Estate. I ran the '100m in 1.5km' hill for the third time, but had to walk for four x 30 second periods! I don't know what was wrong as I've run the hill previously. Then to add insult to injury I got soaking wet in a downpour before I got home. I actually got cold as I was only wearing t-shirt and shorts
Day 23: A short walk at the harbour at Broadford on the Isle of Skye. I had planned a longer walk for the afternoon too, but high winds and stormy seas meant the Armadale ferry was cancelled so we changed our plans. Swiss Ball class in the evening.
Day 24 Walk to join other members of Boblainy Forest Group to participate in a few hours of footpath clearing. Full body workout - sawing and hauling wee birch, gorse and spruce trees from the path.
Day 25: Tough hill run in the local forest, with 150m ascent from my doorstep to the main forest track. I had to jump over puddles as they are heaving with wee critters, including pond skaters and frog spawn. I saw a roe deer run across the track about 5m in front of me.
Day 26: A slow cycle in the early evening
Day 27: Short (5km) tempo run around the village
