Morning all. Hopefully a shoret recovery run for me and some strength work today.
Some good runs yesterday and sounds like agood day for all those at the arena.
Wet and windy since about 6pm last night !
Wow its was windy. I now remember why I usually do my recovery session the bike. That was a pathetic and slow run run which I turned into a fartlek and drills session in order to save some dignity.
Saw TP battling her way up Fenwick Rd in a headwind with the sun in her eyes.
Just back from my run. About 7 and a half miles. Very wet and windy. How is it than when you run a circular route, the wind is against you all the way - is it peculiar to Scotland?
Ha ha, funny that isn't it Alison?
Well done guys for braving the wind & rain. I opted for a recovery run on the treadmill I'm afraid
Yes, Alison, that always seems to be the way of it.
Morning all. Managed a 3 mile run to work after a week off. Had a terrible allergic rash covered in spots from head to toe. Not nice, but now disappearing and feeling quite a lot better,
Hope everyone had a great weekend
Day off meaning 10 blustery miles, going to be a windy week up here!
Enjoyed marshalling at the cross country yesterday, have talked myself into running it next season, windy but sunny, lots of mud and a bun fight afterward (end of season presentation).
Looking forward to meeting everyone at Loch katrine now
Where's 57.5 gone to???
Out of curiosity, does everyone else on here understand Els's use of "bun fight" above?
I used that term in the office this morning and no one understood me - they took it literally to mean throwing buns at each other
Gentler week coming up for me (work imposed)
sorry have been a bit awol the last week... had a lot on with training and work and a few other things. good mileage going on here. I've been continuing with the swim progress and have had a few good cycles and runs. Work has been a bit mental too.
Welcome back to IanJames... it wasn't me you saw at Parkrun though... I haven't done a Parkrun in months. Need to rectify that situation but my weekends have become a bit precious and the idea of trapesing over to the other side of the city is a bit annnoying especially with the recent weather.
FFB hope your stress levels come down soon!!
Swim tonight, good session, seeing real results with speed Run tomorrow and another swim
Turbo this morning... Verrrrrry hot......
swim and run still planned for tonight.
hope everyone is well.
Good training UTC.
Windy here again. Did 5 miles, very slowly.
Opted for the bike tonight, which was a pain as I had wanted to run. No run tomorrow as I am going to the hairdresser.
Wet and WINDY here (50kts gust well over 60kts)
Quiet on here...
Wild and windy here too. Wimped out and did 10 x 400m on the treadmill
3 odd miles was enough in the wind and rain for me!
lots of work on this week so no training last night, didnt get home from uni til 9.30pm... and looks like the same tonight... well done to those running in this weather!!
well at least there was no wind this morning. torrential rain more than made up for it though. sometimes think we all need our heads read for going out in weather like we've been having lately. got thoroughly soaked through this morning but managed my 6 miles.
by my reckoning its 38 days till loch katrine. got quite a bit of training to fit in before then....
is TP ultra-ing this weekend? Sorry, been busy and distracted here so missed lots I am sure!!
bun fight - free-for-all, bit of a bundle? That's my understanding anyway
Ankle niggling still so have been mbking a fair bit and not a lot of running, clip-ins for the first time for me this week ... all going fine until today, small mishap and I stacked it and managed to smack my chest bone against the end of the handlebar - don't recommend that one for sure.
XC Master championship in Forres this Saturday, am meant to be running but was going to hold off due to ankle, am thinking I may just strap it up and go for it anyway!!! Some big names like Angela Mudge so will be a good spectate anyway I am sure.
No wind here today, strange dead calm after the last 48 hours of howling gales.
