Quicker to Altnafeadh

Filed under: Running — admin @ 4:35 pm

After taking a few days off to go climbing with Jamie H and Angus, I’ve been running again since Monday and feeling stronger for the break. So this afternoon I ran over the Devil’s Staircase to Altnafeadh and back in good conditions (sunshine and light showers), and came home with my first ‘sub-2’ in a while (not in my top four or five at 1:58 or 59, but still my fastest since 2006). Also pleased to report that I ran absolutely every step of the way (not always the quickest thing on hill runs, but satisfying self-discipline for training) and turned straight round without stopping when I hit the roadside in Glen Coe.

There’s fresh snow on the hills, but not quite down to the top of the Devil’s, so I’d put the snowline at about 650 to 700m. And the walkers are starting to return in force, along with a few mountain bikers.
