Yes, UTC - awesome

TP - must be so gauling

Sorry to hear about your DNS TP, but it sounds like the safest decision. A friend I was running with this morning had to drive down near Cambridge afterwards, rather her than me!

That is some dedicated training MrsMac.

Skiing was a non starter at Cairngorm this weekend so running got it's usual priority. I got a prime marshalling spot at a hill race yesterday, at the top turnaround. Nice jog up there with the dog, got to see everyone stagger to the summit then start to fly down, and it was curiously sheltered while most of the marshalls looked frozen! Then I stopped for a 'character building' run up and over Slochd Summit from the Findhorn Bridge on the bike route. A wee bit nippy up top.

Today I fashioned a 20 miler by running to meet friends for a jog around the trails by the snow gates on the Cairngorm ski road (unsurprisingly they were closed) and back to Aviemore with the odd detour. Fortunately the Bridge Inn was lovely and warm. Now feel less intimidated if the Fling is cold and windy.

Only one more week to really light evenings...

that's a real shame TP but as others have said, you'll be in great shape for the Fling now

I really enjoyed my run today... cold but peaceful and felt good on return home. No shivers or feeling rubbish, and legs seem more or less ok. On course I think, and a bit more running confidence returned. Didn't actually feel it too cold, just very windy once I turned around to come back. Eye watering stuff!!

57.5, sounds like a cool weekend!

Easy run in the morning, and reps with club after work. Hoping for an ok day!

Wee break from job hunting...

An easy 30mins outing at 6am today.

Catch up soon.

57.5 - sounds like a good weekend. Didnt realise you were doing the Fling too .

They are now predicting this weather to last well into the end of April  so you may well be right about the cold forecast for the Fling 57 !

BM - still up at 6am? Good luck with the job hunting, it cannot be easy.

UTC - when is your next event planned? Tri or marathon?

Gentle 7.2m for me this morning, nice in one direction but ridiculously windy on the return. I had planned on a weeks recovery then some gentle running to get the legs back into things, but I guess now I dont have to factor in recovery I can do some shorter stuff and some hillwork.

TP: Yeah I'm up running or out with Geordie. I'm a mornnig person, so my body clock doesn't really change that much. Cheers applied for 2 today.

TP, was hoping to get a half or 10 miler in before Cape Wrath but there are only a couple and cant make them... so next biggie is the marathon but have a wee sprint tri 1st, a couple of weeks before it. Should be fun! Just need to keep up the long runs!

Sounds nice bm, as long as its falling straight down and not horizontally

Tready's are great for intervals UTC. I always push myself more I  think.

5 miles tonight. Taking it easy this week as I've got the Perth 50K on Sunday

27/03/2013 at 18:52

oooh good luck MrsMac on the 50k!!

Horrid day in work, lovely extended cycle home though. Off to buy a few sporty goodies to cheer myself up though and turbo when I get back. 

The thought of work tomorrow is making me feel sick.  New job applications it definitely is!

27/03/2013 at 18:57

Cragchick - OMG a triahtlon - comeback from the dark side whilst you still have the chance . Sounds like a nice run.

MrsMac - good luck with the 50k .

((UTC)) - hope work gets better soon. Good idea on the kit purchases .

No run for me today, work mental here too, everyone wants everything done right now when its almost end of financial year . Think its called 'panic' !

27/03/2013 at 19:20

Balloch to Clydebank race number arrived today.Rather looking forward to this one after a winter filled with hills. 

27/03/2013 at 20:12

MrsMac: All the best for Sunday.

Tri: Hope your work gets better soon.


27/03/2013 at 21:42

Good luck on Sunday Mrs Mac. Sorry work is so bad just now UTC.

Snowing a little when I ran this evening.

28/03/2013 at 06:24

4.5M fartlek Hard. Snow on ground and lightly falling. It cushioned my footsteps !

It is 28th March, not 28th Dec with this snow ?
