Ben lomond was 4.5 miles up hill and 4.5 down....height is around 3200ft (8 degree incline) I did a long race report and posted it on General/Scottish Runners and also on Events/Ben Lomond Hill Race. Im ding it again soon with a colleague and pencilled it in for next year.

Injury.... I guess not doing too much too soon....gentle increases in miles only ...I have averaged only 27 miles a week since the New Year and Cycle 40-60 miles a week. and a half hour abbs class every Monday with about 20 svelt lycra clad ladies. Been lucky with colds this year also.

I really think most of what we do is in the mind. if you think you can do it you probably will.

have you been watching the football over the
last week,so sorry for the celtic home and abroad.
have just got a new pair of trainers but the
weather has been terrible was just about to
go out when the rain started.
will really have to brave the weather and get those miles in.
how is your training going.

was watching the football---very disappointed---would have wished Celtic to win the EUFA cup but not to be---still, both our teams in Europe next season---I
went to the sports injury clinic at local university and found out my problem---had shin splints after Barcelona which have now gone due to the forced rest---but while in Majorca in April I was talked into playing in a 5-a-side tournament on a tarmac pitch--- this has caused a fair amount of muscle tears etc mainly in my hips and knee areas---seems I will be out of action for a couple of months--physio was horrified to hear I had raced last week---said I had done more damage---definitely NO MORE FOOTBALL--- am stuck in the gym on the bike and ski machines---desperately boring---am really missing running especially as the weather is great--it just isnt fair when i think of all those grinding winter runs ----
what kind of trainers did you get
how is your training going----keep at it and definitely DO NOT play any football

my trainers were sauncony cushion grid havent got the name ,but was out running a 10miler this afternoon in bright sunshine.
shoes felt ok but due to the weather it had to be a run/walk effort but feel ok just now
working later tonight. have been trying to
put together a running schedule for the upcoming marathon,but the weather has not been very helpful. hope things get better
soon.

congrats on the good time for the ek half---what happened in the Blackpool race---were you injured?
i stupidly did the Lisburn half marathon on 18th june----very tough course so was pleased with 1.45---- but legs are wrecked--have not been able to run since---looks as if i will be out for months rather than weeks----am stuck with cycling and swimming but its not the same----what are you aiming for next?

BLACKPOOL MARATHON in july.

school and decorating the hallway.
Ive been wondering about the DUBLIN MARATHON
havent you run this race before?
hope things are well with you.
