57.5 - Good luck and hope you enjoy the race. Loch Kinord is a favourite birdwatching spot of mine and should be a great place to run. I look forward to hearing how you get on. Not yet ready for a 10k, my plan is around the end of Jan.

Pouring down last night. There will surely be flooding in West and Cental Scotland today !

Good luck anyone racing this weekend and 57.5 with the 10k!!

Lol at the cat tales!! When I had my cats, I locked them in various cupboards/out of the house many times over the years!! Kind of miss having them around sometimes...

have a fantastic time in Amsertdam UTC. Weather can't be any worse than it is here.

Thought I was going to get away with a dry run this morning but the rain came around mile 4 and just got heavier and heavier so I was thoroughly soaked by the end.

Been lurking for a while! So hello all. After being soaked when running for the last couple of days in Edinburgh. A pleasant wee 2.5 mile run to work this morning. No rain and a rise in temperature. Bonus!

Good luck everyone with your races or training this weekend looking forward to hearing your tales. 

With all our talk of bad weather I almost feel embarrased to mention that in mid November I'm heading to the Algarve for a month. I wish I was enough of an athlete to say it was a warm weather Winter training camp. Really its an excuse to escape the British Winter and it will be good to not have to contend with ice and snow. 

Welcome Grant - like you I was pleased to have a dry run this morning and for it to be warmer than the last few days. It was 1pm before it got above zero here yesterday.

18/10/2012 at 14:50

alright you lot. anyone going to jedburgh?

18/10/2012 at 17:19

OH, while Culloden is on my doorstep a wedding the night before has put paid to any thoughts of racing on the 28th!

18/10/2012 at 18:44


Belated good luck to UTC in Amsterdam

I saw Culloden OH but am away on a girly weekend then. You thinking about it?

Same goes for Jedburgh dude. Looks like a good one though

Tried a wee 5 mile run tonight. Body seems almost repared but my achilles is still a bit 'shouty'.

18/10/2012 at 18:58

i think it'll be fun. beautiful countryside. have a good fun girly weekend.

Good luck in amsterdam UTC. Welcome HRHB and Grant, and welcome back dude - I think you've done the Dundee parkrun a copule of times - is that right?

Quite cold in Dundee, but not as cold as Glasgow it seems. Very drizzly last night, but really enjoyed my run.

Evening all

FFB - Nah, you should enjoy your new car and make the most of it . They are great......when they work .

Dude - I'll be at Jedburgh too. Take it you are doing the ultra?

Waves to the new people - hello Grant, hello HRHB - watch out, if you stick around here long enough you will be doing marathons before you know it.....and then ultras .

Mrs Mac - that is good recovery from your 30m (and falling over ).

A nice 10m again for me, weather much improved, Park completely flooded however ! There was a dog paddling in what is usually a grassy area . Wore new compression tights today, very strange feeling at first , but once I got used to the odd springy feeling, actually really really good .

I should be tapering but I cannot be a**ed, so Jedburgh is on schedule as a 'training run' rather than an out and out race for me. It will all be miles in the bag for next Spring .

Grant: Welcome to our madhouse.

Tri: All the best in Amsterdam

TP :I walked Geordie earlier. Soaked again !

18/10/2012 at 19:54

yep the ultra - it'll pretty much be a training run for me too see how I feel on the day. it's not a part of the country I know well so looking forward to it

thanks alison.'s a tough track at camperdown..but it always seems to be sunny!

18/10/2012 at 19:55

Evening dude.

18/10/2012 at 20:34

Culloden - Els and I just toying with the idea. Would be better if we could entice one or two others along to reduce the car transport costs.
Decided not to wear my white top with red cross if I do

18/10/2012 at 22:39

You'll have gone past my flat near enough, near the bridge you crossed. It is a great path to run (better once some of the foliage got cut back this spring) but I'd imagine it could be a bit hairy on a bike in places at any age, particularly on a muddy day. Towards Cawdor there are some narrow stretches but I'd imagine it would be quite easily biked.

OH - You don't think celebrating a famous 'away win' would go down well with the locals?

4.5M Easy/Steady. Dry, no wind and no rain

19/10/2012 at 07:44

Morning all. No training for me last night, well I did do a weights session. Late away from work, road work detours and hold up on way home and then 15 minutes driving around to try and get parked So, bu the time I got in whilst a run would have dealy with my anger and furstration, the rain was back on with a veageance. So, no Friday rest day for me.
