Morning all

MrsMac - hope you feel a bit better today.

UTC - when is your triathlon?

Cragchick - saw some pictures of your dust-storm on the news ! That will be no topsoil left anywhere in Forres then!

Heavy rain here, might have to go on the cross-trainer if it doesnt stop, don't fancy a soaking today.

Does anyone know the dates for races in Orkney this year? I will be in Orkney from 28th April till about 10th August. Also are they just turn up sort of races or do you need to book in advance. I really want to try the Stromness 10k This year as I missed it last year. Is it at the start or end of the shopping week?

Robert, I am in Clynder. Work in Erksine.

Thanks Elspeth,  Will definitely do Stromness will have to look at ferries for Flotta if I decide to do it. Hoy I will do probably next year. Hopefully Kirkwall 10k will be early part of August. Will probably be back dowm in Aberdeenshire before Kirkwall and Rousay half's

Intrigued as to how they manage a 10k around Flotta .

One year I might just be up for the Hoy Half .

DMax - Robbie checked out about 5 years ago....but welcome to the thread .

Hideous weather here too, so no run today.

17/04/2013 at 17:27

George - the Kirkwall 10k is only a maybe at present.

They put a free ferry on to Flotta on 10k day and the spread of cakes afterwards is impressive! There is a good 10k route without any laps TP and it is far from Flot!! Quite a tough one.

Hoy half is a good one but fills up fast usually.

Still raining... we had a few hours sunshine Monday night and I thought summer might have come

Oh bother, using OH's login again!

TP, Tri is start of May and physios are saying a month before I should swim... we'll see.. but its tight. They also think I may need an MRI as my rotator cuff may be torn... I'm waiting to see if I can defer for their later race.. I have loads more races and I'd rather do well than plod round injured and end up out of action longer. Definte improvement again today but it's frustatingly slow...

Northern races sound lovely

17/04/2013 at 21:41

Oh UTC I hope you are recovered soon.

The Northern Isles races do sound great.

I had a very wet run tonight. Did 10k at a good steady pace (too embarrassed to write it heere as I know to most of you it would be pathetic!) and managed to more or less stay on my feet in the mud.

I seem to have missed a lot of posts in the last few days. Not much running for me given the conditions detailed by cragchick (the neighbouring field is now covering my garden and with a dose of rain I expect a fine crop of something to start sprouting). Still trying to get the dirt out of the house too. Plus the dust is not doing my pre-Fling cold and cough any good. Ahh, must be taper time.

Well done to birkmyre's son and commiserations to UTC.

You can get a late entry to the Hoy Half if you have accomodation on the island, 3 guys even camped at the island's theatre last year which was keen! The main limitation is ferry space for the day trippers. Never got around to taking a run on Flotta so I'll have to do the 10k one year.

There's really nothing more I can add to what you've all said about Boston. I suspect I might don my Boston marathon shirt for the Fling though as a small gesture of solidarity. The spectators at that race really are tremendous.

Morning you lot

Weird I couldn't post on RW yesterday.

4M Steady run today in wind and pouring rain.

Lots to catch up on.

18/04/2013 at 14:13

Wow, a bit of a blustery one today

18/04/2013 at 14:54

But at least it has stopped raining , yesterday was unbelievable!

Ouch UTC, hope your shoulder recovers soon.

Just been looking at the RAW site - they are talking about doing the route in reverse this year, so Ayr out to Glenbuck , but don't say anything about return transport from the middle of nowhere . At least it means there should be toilets at the start this year (hopefully) ! Hmmmmm, trying to visualise whether this actually makes the course harder / more uphill !

18/04/2013 at 20:02


Lee-Anne, never think what you do is pathetic. You did it

57.5, hope the lurgy goes soon and you're fighting fit for the Fling.

Finally shifted the head yesterday so had a bouncy 8 miles in the monsoon. Knackered tonight but forced myself to do 5 on the tready and feel much better for it

18/04/2013 at 22:28

Just a short run this evening. A bit less windy.

Good running Lee-Anne.

Nice morning today. What a contrast to last 2 days.


19/04/2013 at 11:55

So beautiful out today.

I am due a rest day today and my knee needs it. It was quite sore last night so I ran the first half of the route and walked the rest.

Glad you feel better Mrs Mac.

20/04/2013 at 07:06

In for a nosey.

20/04/2013 at 10:17

Hope your knee is improving Lee-Anne.

Lovely day here today. Hoping for similar for Angus half marathon tomorrow. 

20/04/2013 at 15:13

Fingers crossed for you Alison 

Decided against the half though and opted for 20 miles along the cliffs today
