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.
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.
Morning, snowing lightly outside,
An active rest this week as we are dog sitting a neighbours black Labrador ! Same age as Geordie so plenty of walks this week !!
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???
ooops there he is!!
Morning all. Better sleep last night. Run for me tonight after work.
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.
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
Well doen Longbow for persevering.
Jeezo, asked Asda to donate £98 worth of bottled water for Loch Katrine in return for branding on numbers and on my odyssey website and got a knock back. Seriously They probably get 10x that value shopfited from Toryglen every day.
How do people get free stuff?
Anyone from The North-East or up in Orkney as I was wondering what people favourite races in the NE and Orkney are?
I have done Lumphanan 10k detox twice and really enjoyed it and also balmoral 10k once and enjoyed it also. I plan to do the crathes half marathon this year in september but will be spending my summer in Orkney so was wondering what races are there that i could do that folk recommend
Short run this evening. Snow here is slushy now. Thigh a bit achey, but not too bad.
Very mean of Asda ffb.
That's terrible FFB A company that size?
Hiya George There is an Orkney bunch on here who'll be along soon no doubt to tempt you with races
Did 800 m reps on the treadmill tonight and actually ENJOYED it?!
Pretty grim run this evening. Only 4 miles and enegy low, bu then I have just fasted for 2 days
We have snow (eventually) - 11 mile slow plod today but including track over Wideford Hill

Evening. Busy times here. We have a little snow but nothing significant. Is pretty and not disrupting roads etc. Main benefit of the freezing temperatures is that the coastal path is all frozen so much easier to run / bike on!
No running here since orienteering on Saturday. Grumpy peroneal tendon (self-diagnosed!) which seems to be improving I hope. Have been on MBK yesterday and today about 10 miles each time. Perhaps another bike tomorrow ... maybe even see if I can keep away from trainers all week!!! Am falling back in love with my ancient, if knackered mountain bike though but very pished off with disruption to what was good training
Walking dogs in lightly falling snow.
Catch up time soon.
OH - you missed one in March
Cragchick, sorry to hear that.
Another run for me later, and hopefully better than last night as I am eating today
