Ha ha TP, you're right, need to keep the Fling entries strictly hush hush
Saw the Goat Fell race too UTC, looks a toughie. Did you see the state of some of the folks that had fallen? Only did my first (and only) hill race this year - Conic Hill and thought that was hard enough!
Elspeth, did you get my text last night about eating times? The tables for 7pm if not
Packed for LN, now enjoying a glass of wine for my Birthday tomorrow as I'll have to be good before the race
Have a great weekend everyone
the falls and scapes on the Goat Fell race looked sore!!! think i'll just keep to the flat!
i can top the visitors duration as the outlaws, i mean inlaws are visiting for the whole of the october holidays. 16 days!!
unfortunately (!!) i have to go to bury st edmunds for work next week. poor wife will have to put up with them by herself. think she will be climbing the walls by the time i get back.
good luck to those running this weekend whatever the distance!
Poor Mrs Longbow!
Happy Birthday tomorrow Mrs Mac, didn't get the text but 7pm sounds fine, time for Peter to register and get to our B&B first.
Missed the Goat Fell race, would have like to see that - but not to do it!
OMG - 16 days ... my parents came for 12 last Christmas, I have a good relationship with them but I was ready to commit bad deeds, lord knows what my husband felt like! Kids loved it though of course!!!
The Fling ... whisper, whisper, lips are sealed. It'll be all over FB though won't it ... sigh!
6.5 miles of coastal path today dodging showers but not the wind of course. Legs felt tired, yesterdays bog yomp clearly took more out of me than I realised, but think I am getting a wee bit faster.
Orienteering with the kids in the morning so looking forward to that, not that I'll get any done, just a case of me shadowing them whilst trying to keep my mouth shut as they turn map the wrong way up etc etc ... competitive parent? ... moi? ... surely not!
Happy birthday MrsMac.
Just signed up for the Kirkie Half. Get to see the parents with built in escape excuse. I demand that the weather is better than last year!
Always liked Bury, longbow. I played hockey there for a few years when living nearby.
Agree Goat Fell looks hard core ... possibly not one to start with!!!
Happy Birthday Mrs M
Happy Birthday Mrs Mac.
Happy birthday Mrs Mac
Sorry, not been on for ages: was away on holiday. So, need to read back through a good few pages.
That can be my post long run activity. Need to get sorted and out, so will pop back on later.
MrsMac: Happy Birthday
I found out at 1:30pm ish yesterday that I've got a 6 month contract till 31 March 13and start in my 'old office' on Monday morning. I'll be working for an agency and 2 colleagues also got similar extensions.
Thing was I took in a big box of chocs and we'd a leaving lunch yesterday for a few of us !
All the best to those racing.
LN time target is about 4:15-4:30, I think, but taking it in a relaxed fashion- more as trainig for Glen Ogle, and a "fun" run, rather then killing myself for a good time. I think my competitive streak has faltered recently, and I'm no longer willing to push myself so hard in races that I feel ill, it's more about feeling that I have justified the time spent trainig, and that I am coping withthe race distance without it being too difficult.
I'm too old to go after PB's anymore, and Loch Ness is not the course for it anyway.
Happy Birthday Mrs Mac .
Oops. 17.5 miles instead of plannd 15. Upping distance that much from 13 perhaps not my best move. Feel OK though, but a bit pooped lol.
Good luck to everyone running tomorrow.
My marathon PB is from Loch Ness.....Just the 10k for me tomorrow. Only have a tailwind for a couple of miles unlike those doing the marathon who'll have it for 24 miles or so!!!
Scobos: All the best for tomorrow.
Thing is I can give a weeks notice if get a permanent job. Still waiting to hear from a couple I've applied for.
busy here the last few days
Happy Birthday MrsMac
Good luck Tricia and Scobos for tomorrow and anyone else running (TP? Elspeth? OH!)
BM hope the job turns out for the best either way!!
FFB, nice running... I had a lovely 13 miler along the canal this afternoon, up to Kirki and back. Really enjoyed it. Wind was behind me on the way out and it wasnt too warm. On the way back a bit breezy and sun was going down. The reflections on the river were gorgeous and it was really peaceful. Think I took about 1:50 without pushing too hard at all so feeling quite good about Amsterdam now!!
Then when I got back jumped straight into the shower to avoid cooling down too fast. Felt fine, then all of a sudden I felt really sick not good. Had a lie down for half an hour and was much better after. Fed and watered and warm now though... I hate that feeling you get sometimes after a long run
Circuit and aerobic training tomorrow and a reasonable wee cycle there and back. Should be good. Kirki half for me too
As "Ultra" TC I hope you are running to Kirky and back for the race next week . You'd have passed quite a few of the haunts of my mispent youth on that canal run!
Managed a win in the Inverness parkrun this morning. Because all the fast locals must be running in the 10k or marathon tomorrow. And the visitors were all there to stretch their legs before the 26.2.
Got in a bit of history running home from work today, taking in the paths over the Culloden Battlefield. Always seems to have a sombre atmosphere, despite some warm sun this afternoon.
haha 57.5, erm no I'm going to cycle up, probably take the MTB and go along the canal. Looked at the route, it seems ok... less hilly than 12.5k I think but that wouldnt be hard Your run today sounded rather interesting!!
well done on the Parkrun win too!!! erm I think regardless of the "fast locals'" abscence you are pretty quick, I seem to remember you doing very well in Lochaber!!!
