Good morning everyone!
I'm up very early today. No running as such but I intend to do some downhill jogging on a long hillwalk today. Aiming to cover 9 munros (mountains over 3000 feet high) in Glenshee today, hence the early start. I've done 10 in one day before and this set seems easier so fingers crossed it won't be too challenging.
Enjoy your run today - it's a cracking looking day here
Have a great day donaldo.
Alex - quite right to not feel guilty. Hope the walk with the dogs helped you to unwind.

Paddy have you been given the "pigeon" stretch for your sciatica? It hurts like hell, but really helped sort mine out.
Wabo hope the ankle heals quickly
Donaldo have fun on your day off
Stickless sorry can't answer that one!
I'm having a bit of a stress with the bathroom refit. They'd originally said they'd be finished tomorrow, but now are saying it won't be till Tues and that they'd never said tomorrow. Sigh. It's frustrating not having a bathroom, especially when the gym has no hot water!
Another interview this afternoon. I'm getting quite used to them now, which is proabably not a good thing!
Have a good day all.
Stickless - Sorry can't help but have you tried asking Ceal/Sharkie.
emzap - How annoying, but hope the interview goes well
Donaldo hope you are enjoyin your days in the hills
What: 4.17 miles with stridesWhy: i like themLast Hard: One day i'll answer this one Lyrics No
Managed my 9 munros near Glenshee - was a total of about 20 miles with many 1000's of feet of ascent. My friend couldnt manage the 9th so I managed to run up it, down it and back to the car, arriving at the same time as him! A really top day out and a great way to spend a day off from running lol lets hope I can move tomorrow.
Donaldo - great effort! Sounds pretty tough to me! Hope you enjoyed it!
Emzap - hope the interview went OK
Paddy - Hope the pins and swim help!!
LMUH - Thanks for helping me feel not guilty!!
Looks like a few rest days around today, some unplanned! Hope I didn't start a trend yesterday!
Was a naughty boy earlier...I'm supposed to be base building but went out for a run quite angry and frustrated. Had to shorten my planned run as it was getting late etc. So raced off, legged it up the hill (no warm up) and proceeded to peg it down the steady decline. I was running on adrenaline and going far too fast. By the time I turned around and ran back up the incline the adrenaline had worn off and it became hard. Got there in the end though! So, I beat my PB for that run by about 2 mins, but felt no satisfaction at all. Lesson learned...don't run angry!
What: 3.41 miles stupid - 28:28 @ 8:20 min/m
Why: Because I'm a plonker and won't be doing that again. Lucky I didn't get injured.
Last Hard: tonight
Last rest: yesterday
NZC: just watched our forecast and it should be a lovely winter's day here too...expected to go down to 1 degree overnight with possible ground frost, but bright and sunny tomorrow with a high of 17. Unfortunately this is summer!
What: 40 mins off road, and then a bit moreWhy: ran before marshalling at first of club's 5k series, but then did a few extra miles on the courseLast hard: parts of Tuesday's fartlek?Last rest: 09
Was due to go to Gateshead to English School T&F tomorrow as over 30 of our club members are involved: must be some sort of record! However daughter is coming back from Cadiz after 6 months away so off to Liverpool to pick her and friends up at lunchtime. Will squeeze a run in somehow. Or two.
