Jason - good luck for the Chester marathon, should be quite a scenic one if I remember the area correctly, although I haven't been there for some while. Not running around the walls I hope
Teknik - nice run, 10 miles followed by a harder, hilly 6 sounds like a tough workout in my book
Mace - enjoy the Folkestone half and hope you have a great race.
Stuart - what race are you doing? As I type this I'm thinking "he must have already mentioned it so I really should go back and look"
HM4 - nice to see that you still have the avatar of your cat. We (family and I) stayed at "Sandy Balls" (yes, it's a real place) in the New Forest and a ginger cat adopted us for the four days we were there. We named him 'Roger' and spoilt him enormously. BTW, what are "Insanity Workouts"?
Thanks. I don't do photos usually so it's handy having a cat like Millie to use as my avatar ! But when I got married in January I had a whale of a time being photoed and when it comes to running I'm fair game. Insanity Workout is scary there is a thread on here (which is very easy to find if you just search on Insanity Workout) & Insanity Workout. It seems expensive to me however when you take into account how much gym membership would cost I guess it's not too bad.
4 mile plod last night and achilles is still niggling,sorta cleared up but it seems to be back causing me mild discomfort.
Made a decision in that im starting the marathon and see how it goes,am sensible enough to know where my pain /discomfort threshold is and then act accordingly but am sure it wont come to that on the day
Well done on the NFM jayc, goodchoice of place to stay too, I'm local to the New Forest and visited there a lot.
Good luck for the weekend Mace and any other weekend runners.
Anyone here London Marathon applicants? Out of 3 applicants I know only 1 got in (not me)
Jayc- did Chester last year- nice course, bit of a hill in last few miles, but preetty good
Got my GFA confirmation today- so mags are coming out- good luck to all in the lottery
Good luck to all weekend racers, I hope the weather is good for all marathoners! A bit breezy here but in the right direction for Loch Ness runners. Fingers crossed that the achilles behaves YC.
No time for a run last night as at work til late (month end) but should be ok for tonight.
Got my GFA yesterday too. I can feel a plan coming on!
Good luck to all the loch ness runners
Tek - Yes I am now thanx. Concussion now better, and back out today for my last LSR......It felt really good knowing that. 20 miles with 8@mp. Overall average pace 8.41mm, given that I had strong head wind and some very heavy rain showers for the last 6 miles I am happy!
Good luck to all doing Loch Ness this weekend, I hope the weather is kind to you!
HM hope the shoulder's a little better today
mace hope you're resting
YC I'm sure the niggle will disappear as soon as you pull on the race vest
Els welcome back

Going to feel a bit left out spectating not racing this weekend but planning a run on my own somewhere in inverness before getting down to the finsih line and some pre race socialising with friends.
Should be lots of news come Monday!
The weather has been a bit kinder so yes.
Well done on everyone's training.
"The difference between the mile and the marathon is the difference between burning your fingers with a match and being slowly roasted over hot coals."
Is that supposed to be inspirationa???
Nope, just an observation
YC thanks. Good luck, relax, and have a great day at Nessie. Remember to start chanting "I... AM... A... MACHINE" from about mile 22
YC and all the other racers on a busy weekend- Have a Great Race, guys
Looking forward to all the reports
Good luck to everyone this weekend! Hope the weather is good to you all.
