LeeAnne, Loch Morlich sounds amazing!! My kind of thing totally! A week off running wont have done you any harm with all that activity.
I am shattered today so taking a rest day, other than cycling to/from work. Enjoy your rest as well TP.
Bf did Jura last year and weather was very warm. I on the other hand went for a cycle, a sea swim, a run... and another sea swim. It was amazing.... we also did some lovely hikes. Really looking forward to going again!! Last year we stayed in Tayvallich for a night but wont need to do that this year as we know the guy who takes you over on a rib for £20.
Ooh and our mortgage was approved... so we move end of June!! Exciting times!!
Thanks TP, I know I would have enjoyed it more if the weather had been better. However, it also reaffirmed that if I can't run the whole way I just don't like it. To me it feels like I might as well go for a hike.
Don't get me wrong, I am glad I did it, the whole week was an amazing experience. And I did kind of treat it like an ultra in a way because of the course.
On our way back now, through the Western highlands, stopped for a cuppa in ullapool. beautiful town.
Looking forward to a good slouch on the couch when we get back!!
The course for me was just too unchanging. I also don't like the rocky paths where I feel you are constantly looking at your feet. What did go well was nutrition, and despite having a few blisters from the week, Vaseline seemed to keep the discomfort almost entirely at bay.
The good thing is though, because I was soooo slow, my legs feel ok which is great and means I can continue training to get fit again.
