Migraine cleared enough to go for run: 10.3 miles in the bag, but last mile a bit iffy due to residual migraine symptoms.Tried out my new icebreaker kit. They sent me a baselayer pace top and a mid layer vest (and some socks which I did not try today). I already had some baselayer tights. So it all went on and a I had a nice toasty run.

Ideal weather for Icebreaker kit FFB Hope thats the end of the migraine, well done for getting out.

We've still no snow BM!

Sounds good UTC, up the WHW?

Our club used to have blaes courts LB which meant they flooded if there was even a wee shower

Did a 16 mile run on the treadmill today I was only going to do a half marathon but Footloose started playing so it gave me a boost More a lesson in mind-training than anything else

just about thawed out after the coaching today. we had one court playable and kids only turned up for 2 of the 4 classes we run on a saturday but given the weather that was a bit of a result.

MrsMac, our carpet courts cope okay with the rain (unless its torrential) but the frost has been a real problem. the club got some new salt/sand mix to use on the carpet and it has worked a treat on the court we tested it on.

need to get out for a run tomorrow as i'm way behind my half marathon training for Katrine. 50 days to go.

i still wear icebreaker clothes i bought in new zealand when we were there 9 years ago!! its brilliant. especially when free!!!

Pleased the swimming is going well UTC. Hope the migraine has cleared ffb.

Quite a good turn out at our parkrun this morning, considering snowy conditions. I strained left hamstring near the end and had to walk a bit. Doesn't seem too bad now; hope to run tomorrow.

Well done on all the runs, 16 miles on treadmill Mrs Mac - ugh! Maybe I should try it sometime!

You would need the icebreaker stuff today FFB - suspect you'll need more layers than that for antartic though!

Chilly run for us out with some of the group but then we split off and went along the coast from just south of Marwick Bay to Birsay, really lovely though very cold and fell a few times on slippery frozen grass. Back into the wind on the roads which wasn't quite so nice and very cold. 18.3 miles. Not planning to leave the fireside tonight!

yep through Mugdock MrsMac, some along theWHW... very nice. Very toasty in my new xmas thermal top and newly acquired (from a running friend, they didnt fit her) cycle leggings which kept me warm on the cycle up and back. Ran also with new shoes.. heels a bit sore now due to minor rubbing but nothing serious. A glorious day in Glasgow for a run.

Off to celtic connections tonight, Kila (an Irish band bf knows) are playing and a few from the running club are going so should be a nice night.

Long cycle, short run/swim tomorrow before returning to work Monday.

Nice miles Elspeth.

Respect to you MrsMac... I could never do that distance on a dreadmill....

FFB glad the migraine settled enough for a run and the coaching went well LB.

Hope the hamstring is ok Alison.

I need to go get ready now... have a good night people.

Hope the hamstring ok Alison.

Good session UTC, and it was a lovely day for training in Glasgow.

Well done on the treadmill Mrs Mac, I remember the days when I used to do that.

Elspeth that sounds like a good session too.

Longbow coaching in this weather must have been freezing. Well done. I am sure you will be fine for Loch Katrine.

up late FFB?

20/01/2013 at 10:14


Just discovered I have no clean kit  No recovert run, will have to go on spin bike instead

20/01/2013 at 14:28
Good 9 miler this morning. Longest run for a while but it was so cold. Or rather the wind was so cold. When I out of the wind it was a great day for running. Not too slippy either after the light dusting of snow overnight.
21/01/2013 at 06:58


yep  that wind was sooooo cold...  nice run in those conditions.

Hope your insomnia doesn't last FFB, I haven't been sleeping great of late either, keep waking through the night for what seems like forever, then am knackered when I need to get up.

Back to work today

Light snow fallen over night, roads look clear though so hoping I can still cycle to work. Might just go to gym tonight for classes and a swim if the weather is still so cold...

21/01/2013 at 07:44

Morning UTC, another sleepless night, and like you knackered and wanting to sleep when it is time to get up  I suffer from insomnia periodically. Last time it a magnesium deficiency and I know that it is not that this time, so I am thinking stress. My brain just won't switch off: work is busy and I am not sure if my contract will get extended beyond march, sponsors for Antarctica, website for antarctica, antarctica what ifs, am I doing enough training, being fit for D33 is going to be a close thing, Loch Katrine organisation, avalanches and which hills is baby FFB in, other baby FFB getting portfolio together for art school entry submission .......

Anywa, a good weights and abs session yesterday and 25k on the spin bike. probably a rest day today with a few abs and some focused strethcing/yoga.

21/01/2013 at 09:31

Morning all.

Managed a 10 mile run yesterday. Chilly but great conditions.

2.5 miles to work whilst snowing this morning, not so pleasant.

Hope the bout of insomnia disappears FFB, it is not much fun

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Good running Grant. Pretty wild here - biting wind, and snowing as I walked home from work.

Off to Pilates soon.

22/01/2013 at 06:41

Morning, snowing lightly outside,

Morning Tri

An active rest this week as we are dog sitting a neighbours black Labrador ! Same age as Geordie so plenty of walks this week !!

22/01/2013 at 06:48


nice running Grant. I did end up going to the gym last night instead of club run, it was just tooooo cold!!

Turbo this morning and run and swim tonight hopefully.

Hope you enjoyed Pilates Alison.

FFB, sounds like you have a lot on your mind... I dont actually know why I haven't been sleeping too well... although I do appear to have a bit of a cold this morning (despite a relatively good sleep last night!).

Hope everyone has a  good day

Where's BM by the way???

22/01/2013 at 06:50

ooops there he is!!

22/01/2013 at 07:53

Morning all. Better sleep last night. Run for me tonight after work.

22/01/2013 at 09:09

morning. wasn;t planning on running this morning but woke up early enough to go. was fooled into thinking that it was mild outside by the lack of wind but as soon as i stepped outside i realised my mistake. blowing a bloody gale but persevered anyways and actually quite enjoyed the run. wasn't too much slower than usual.

22/01/2013 at 09:49

No running for me today Weather is ok but tendon at the back of the knee is sore so a couple of days rest to be on the safe side
