School holidays start today for Miss and Mrs B, so it's raining. Warm rain mind you.
Peace has returned to my road - lots of police helicopters and cop waggons here last night - who would have thought RW fans would need all that? (although they would have made a fortune if they had ticketed everyone illegally parked!)
3m walk in that warm rain for me today.....its still soggy though . Resting my knee a bit more, but will try a run again tomorrow I think as it feels a lot better.
Well done 57.5 - I'd take the official time .
Harris sounds good Elspeth.
Oh no Cragchick that's a shame about your car . My mother is in a similar dilemma with hers, 15yr old VW, still runs just about, but considers it 'an old friend' and won't part with it . I told her one day that old friend is going to leave you on the motorway miles from anyway, but she wasn't having any of it !
Keep an eye on that weight loss FFB ! It could just be all this extra stress of travelling to Aberdeen every week, but worth taking note of in case you suddenly lose more.
Happy graduation dinner UTC.
yes, I am very glad this VW did the expiring BEFORE I started the drive South next Friday evening with the kids!
Another kind of muggy but not quite warm day here. 4.5 miles with my friend this morning, checking out potential course changes for one of the Forest Runs we do here every summer (4 different locations). Nice and slow, legs feel so sluggish though - thoughts of 26+ miles on Sunday feeling a little scary!
Which forest run cragchick?
Definitely take the official time 57.5 because lets face it, you'd have to take it if it was slower than the time you recorded so what's the difference? Well done
Harris sounds lovely Elspeth, hope you get good weather. Will there be midgies?
You'll be fine cragchick, just taper madness kicking in
5Kg is a lot FFB. Like TP says, keep an eye on it.
5 miles tonight with a glass of red wine as a recovery drink
Agree - definitely the official time 57.5. The Culbin one ... want to see if we can eliminate some of the straighter sections that are apparently 'flat and boring' ... having not actually done the forest run I can't really comment, but we shall see. Need to keep the distance the same and ensure the terrain is suitable for all, so who knows ...
Mrs Mac - that's what I keep saying but oh boy, I have just felt soooooo sluggish this week ... and daughter has just come out with wonderful snotty cold she is loving to share with me
hmmm, glass of wine ...
4M Easy/Steady on a warm dull, smiry rainy morning
TrI: Enjoy the dinner
We'd a very good dinner at Harvester in Hillington last night.
57.5: A belated well done on your 10k time.
Quiet on here today.
A slow 6.6m for me today, knee was generally a lot better, but its still a bit twangy on the downhills so I'm walking these where necessary. Unfortunately there is nothing totally flat around here, unless I just go round and round the block, so I have to go up and down a hill at some point if I want a more interesting run . I think I need to have more rest / x-training days in between running days whilst I am still in this recovery phase.
Wine sounds good MrsMac. I haven't had any wine for ages as the beer down South was too good to miss and also good for carbing I reckon .
Good luck all weekend racers, looking forward to CC's report on (that place I cannot spell) Gru . Happy training everyone else.
Grr! RW has B()&&£r'd up the "My Bookmarks" again Just getting ready for trip to Harris ...
Will there be midges, MrsMac? What, in the Western Isles? - NEVER!
Well if it's windy enough then that'll keep the midges away! Enjoy
I love Harris - even though the time we spent there it pished down for most of it.
Easy easy on that knee TP, plenty of time for a bit more recovery I'd say.
6km on treadmill today with a few speedy efforts to remind me how to run fast - will need to attempt this when I hit the tarmac section at Coylumbridge to make up for crawling up and into the main section of the Lairig Ghru (no idea how you pronounce it either - I am probably Anglicising it and saying it all wrong!!).
Sound like nice birthday celebrations Birkmyre - I will be celebrating mine by doing a race ... on Sunday
No better way to celebrate a Birthday cragchick Good luck in case I miss you
That was a bit of a silly question right enough OH Have a great trip
Ooh, I'm quite partial to a beer too TP Glad your out running again.
30 miles planned for tomorrow and 15 on Sunday, yikes! Have a great weekend everyone
Enjoy your birthday race cragchick.
That's a tough weekend Mrs Mac.
Short but tough run in Camperdown park this evening. Quite hot here, but nice and shady near the trees.
yes, we finally have sun too after a VERY blustery afternoon.
Weather looking interesting for the Braemar side of the race on Sunday, ach well, has 24 hours or so to improve!!
Happy Birthday for tomorrow cragchick
MrsMac: A right heavy training load this weekend for you.
Dry out here since about 3pm yesterday...
Yes- annoying about the my bookamrks- not sure how to get them back.
Struggling with lurgy- although I supose I was due to taper for CS anyway, and I should at least be over it by race day.................more lemsip annyone?
Get well soon Tricia.
Hope the weather holds out cragchick, have a great race & Birthday
Happy Hols Elspeth Itching at the thought of the midgies
Weather was quite nice this morning, bit breezy. 30 miles done, 20 on tarmac though, yuck! Hips were quite sore but I'm putting that down to mileage/surface. Feeling quite good though
Well done MrsMac, hectic training weekend for you. Yuk also to the tarmac!
Enjoy Harris Elspeth and OH.
7m for me tonight, late run as was down at Prestwick today looking at houses (again!), one of these days I might actually move!! Good run though, energy levels good and knee much better. I put this recovery down to Jura whisky .
Happy Birthday for tomorrow Cragchick - hope the race goes well.
Rest Day for me, out with Geordie for his first walkies.
