Wet out a heavy drizzle when out. 4M Steadily done.
Alison: Enjoy your conference.
TP: Hope you'd a good birthday.
Got the book ;The Dirtiest Race Ever' The story of Olympic mens 100m from 1988.
easy run and track intervals tonight. swim after, technique session.
looking forward to it, as long as work isnt too stressful...
off in early to sort out some audit figures...
Yep a decent birthday swag haul, new shorts, socks. After my morning cycle I almost fell asleep in the afternoon , must be old age !
Various birthday texts from friends throughout the day, but none from my parents , despite them sending me two cards (as one went missing presumed lost in the post) and making a massive fuss last week when I said don't worry about getting another card, its just more expense etc, then them sending another anyway. So I was starting to get quite annoyed as the evening went on...then about 8pm I get a text from my mother just saying 'I will text you tommorrow on your Birthday' .....you would think having given birth to someone you would at least remember what date it was (albeit a long time ago!!!!) . She had convinced herself it was today and no-one was going to tell her differently!!!
Entry now in for Kirkintilloch on the 7th .
UTC - I was actually thinking anyone wearing road shoes at RAW on Saturday would probably be putting them in the bin by now - talk about stinky-farm quaqmire !
climbing tonight... thank heavens its Friday, been a tough week!!
Ordered new Asics,although different model than normal... hopefully will be ok!!
Need to enter Kirki, hopefully wont be booked out by tonight.
Great weekend of training ahead... just glad that miserable rain has stopped!!
OH, hope your sister is ok!!!
Good luck Elspeth and OH tommorrow. Looks like a good forecast.
Frosty this morning, gloves out for my run. Legs okay but I'm sticking with short runs this week.
Happy training UTC and good weekends to everyone.
Happy B'day TP. And fwiw, my road shoes (Pegasus) were fine for RAW, and after a hose down are good as new. Well, if I'm honest, they were pretty filthy already so I'm not too bothered.
57 - no, had to work. Hope you enjoyed it. Played ok, but without much bite upfront. Not the worst result in the world. It would have been worse had we been playing Queen of the South
Slightly belated happy returns TP!
Bl**dy cold run this morning! Hands just wouldn't warm up. Checked the weather site when I got back and found it was only about +1 deg!!
Quiet on here the last few days!!
Just back from a 10 miler, gorgeous day for it. Cold but lovely early on. Got some new Asics as the others are binned. Slightly different to my norm, they are Asics Gel Hyper-33 (Last few pairs have been Nimbus 11-13!). They feel nice and whats more they are purple (I also have a purple pair of Asics Tarthers (wee "flats" types)... I have a bit of a purple obsession to be honest
Popping into town soon, will walk in once bf back from his run. Out tonight with a friend for a few birthday drinks and hard sessions planned for tomorrow. Going to train with old gym buddies from before I moved
Hope Elspeth and OH are getting/got on ok!
RB - for the QoS comment. I had a great time at the game, last European night I was at was a defeat in about 2000!
Stunning run in Kinlochleven today. Last time I remember this place was my first WHW walk in 1982, it was pissing down with rain and the most miserable place imaginable. Today the sun was shining, the place is reborn due to the popularity of the WHW and the scenery is great. Off to run in Glencoe tomorrow, which will always be up at the top of my favourite places in Scotland no matter what the weather throws at me there.
welcome back IJ!
You did better than me, I didnt manage any of the ToC, totally forgot despite writing them in my diary!! Saw that 5x50 thing but doubt I could motivate myself to run every day. Train yes (in some form) but always run? probably not. Hope your lurgy clears up!!
Ive done the LN Marathon but not the 10k etc... just stayed in a hostel at Fort Augustus, not sure if they'd have dorms spare at this stage but could be worth checking. Not doing Jedburgh either. Having a September free of racing to get some good training in before the XC season starts... Reps with club back on tomorrow.
Amsterdam Half and Kirki half October though then a few other bits and pieces towards Nov/Dec. Picking up the cycling over the winter as well as we've booked a training camp for April in Mallorca (Triathlon). So need to get the fitness up before then!!
Well done Elspeth and OH! Great times!!
Off out for dinner to our old haunt at the 78, seeing as we're off tomorrow!! Rain forecast so climbing it is through the day.
