...forgot to say GOOD LUCK tomorrow (and Sunday) Emmy @ the Enigma winter double - hope the lake isn't flooded...

04/01/2013 at 13:39

Yes, good luck Emmy.

Nice training all, i love reading what everyone's up to.

Tek - how's the knee doing ?

jason - medicine ball ?? i'm slowly coming to the conclusion you're a mentalist

Seen quite a few joggers out at lunchtime round here and even a couple on the way home from work in the dark. Haven't been seeing any at 5am though, bloody "new-years-res-lightweights"

Hello to everyone and a big thank you for the good wishes. The lake is 95% OK so at least I won't get too muddy. Am a little worried about it but here's hoping everything is OK and I can get some sleep tonight!

I'll report back with a full report later.

I'm a lightweight (in non mass terms)
I've never run before 7am and only then in races!
... but I haven't made any NY resolutions either!

Good luck Emmy

Strangely there were no new members at jog Scotland last night, I was expecting an influx of new members, most must still be in holiday mode

Another 5 miles easy this morning, 48.4 for the week, rest day tomorrow and longer run on Sunday.

Lots of great running going on  

First run of the year for me since the 9 miler on hogmanay.

Decided to run out to see my mate at his work, so ran out a steady 5.3 miles and had a natter for 20 minutes before an easy running back. The route has a few hills in the middle which i surprisingly enjoyed.

Leg 1: 5.3miles. Time: 41:08

Splits: 7:29,  7:58,  8:10,  8:02, 7:28, 1:58

Leg 2: 5.3miles. Time: 43:50

Splits: 8:24,  8:10,  8:14,  8:29,  8:06,  2:24

Emmy- Good luck Look forward to the report

Mace- mentalist, moi??

Spark- nice hilly run

Fiona- Nice double again and well done on keeping second- sounds like an umm interesting run

OH- Hope the milk supply is back Nice run

Tek- nice bimbling

12.01m for me today, followed by a warm down of just over a mile. Ran the 12 just a little faster than normal, but it all felt comfortable- must be progress! 12.01m in 1.22.51 Splits: 7:13 7:18 7:14 7:10 7:03 7:04 6:42 6:41 6:39 6:38 6:34 6:30. Happy days.....

Hahaha

Good luck Emmy!

Nice running spark and SC. Which jogscotland are you Stewart?

jason running up the side of a quarry in the sand was the hardest running I've done and in the dark I could not see the top so not sure if that was good or bad!!

Rest day here and long run planned for tomorrow.

Same here !! Jason happy days indeed you must be buzzing !

OH another lightweight here !!! don't run at silly times of the mornings either, I always pass runners while driving home from a night shift at 7.30 am and often wonder what time they started, guess I am just nocturnal after 20 years on nights

Stewart  nice mileage..and good for you leading a group at your club, did you have to do a coaching course ? our group leaders have to nowadays, insurance and all that. 

Just a nice easy 5.5 recovery for me today..I wont bother with the splits as it involves 9s yes Jason 9s , I dont think I have ever seen any of your splits under 7.30s

Should have been 12 mile MLR  today, but my club are running a marathon training group on Saturday mornings, so will go tomorrow just to be sociable as I wont be able to get to many of them due to shifts.

Good luck Emmy can't wait for the race reports.
Spark nice running well done,
SC nice running.
Teknik nice recovery.
Fiona snap apart from the swim rest day today first in a while

FionaC,NN, Inverness leisure, I had to do a one day leaders course, which I enjoyed and picked up a few useful tidbits. The group was in need for volunteers to help out so I thought it would be nice to give back, however we were not taught how to coach people how to run, focus was on how to manage a group, route planning etc

I'll say Hi on Tuesday Stewart!

A fellow jog Scottie, I'll see you on Tuesday what group do you normally run in?
04/01/2013 at 20:46

With Craig, so far most of the runs seem to be through mud and up hills!!

F

04/01/2013 at 20:56
I've only done hill reps with Craig's group, you guys are nuts doing the mast at night, it's hard enough through the day, managed to do vomit without stopping on Sunday, it extremely muddy up there
04/01/2013 at 20:56

3.6 miles to the gym (I actually thought the loop I took would be about a mile longer than it was) then lower body weights. Run was easy, weights not so easy...

If I can get out my bed tomorrow it'll be 7.5miles inc. parkrun, if not I might do some intervals. Gym tomorrow afternoon/evening too.

04/01/2013 at 20:59

So which one is that then? They were talking about that on Thursday. It that up by the Great Glen Way?

I must get back to the weights SM!
