Thanks JR !!

But the road around here are very country like and although traffic is very light still would want to be on those roads in the dark. But looking forward to getting out at lunch along the banks of the Clyde. Saw lots of runners heading out so thought I would go and see where they were heading and its perfect - off the roads which is good

Feeling a bit down really as the beginning of the year saw a 100 mile January, I was full of enthusiasm and looking at marathons etc in the future. Be good to get back at it but need a push, as I say signed up for Great Scottish run next Septemeber so that's one goal, also hopefully our local Half will be back next year as well

One day maybe The Loch Ness Marathon - my ultimate goal

So pleased as at last I can get out at Lunchtimes - only draw back is I need to stay at work longer to justify it and wont be home till 6.30

However, this will only be in the winter as its to dark to run when I get home as there are not many paved areas where I live and cant chance just running on the roads as its pitch black with no street lights

Well all I have had some good news - I am now in the Glasgow Office. York Street to be precise and there are some great routes for running along the Clyde where the are proper paved boardwalk areas,Ssecondly there is a shower no more than 10 yards from my desk - so lunchtime running maybe on the cards !!!!

Woo hoooooooo !!!!!!!

Evening all thought I would stop by and say hello,not running at the moment due to a 6.30 start of a 1.5 hour commute to work, that's 3 hours a day out of my life and I am resenting it big time, hate it in fact

Am missing the running and stupid things like putting my miles in to RW V Fetch forum, filling in my running log etc but most of all miss you guys, Got day of tomorrow so should get out sometime I hope although 4 miles every now and then is not really worth it.

Gotta sort this out - signed up for Great Scottish run next year though.

Yours frustrated and a tad angry reporting Scotland

The guy actually rang today which gave me a chance to grill him with questions having studied the which reports and numerous sites.

Basically they are "Free" paid for by a loan the company get from Barclays, I get nothing from the feed in tariff (which does exists but is much less than years ago), they get that to pay off the loan so basically I save about £120 a year. I will get it after about 6 years when the loans paid off.

Reading about all the hassle of a 20 year guarantee where they basically own your roof space, wasn't worth the hassle to me. Interesting thing if my roof needed repairs and the panels had to be taken down I would owe them money for loss of income !!

Same approach to me then Grendel !!

Mummy - thing is I couldn't see how this guy was going to fit over 7k worth of panels FREE and I make money? Turns out that they get a loan from Barclays then I pay it back for them with the feed in tarrif of electricity that would be mine if I bought them. So in essence I get about £120 a year out of it and only get electricity when its light as the system doesn't store energy (in other words you generate electricity in daylight, if it isn't used as its generated it goes back as the feed in tarrif for them to profit from it so as most people are at work during most of daylight hours you don't use the energy you generate they get the profit). Also they own the roof space for 20 years and if the panels have to come down to repair roof you pay THEM for THEIR lost revenue. In other words a rip off - even if you pay for them yourself it would take nearly 10 years to re coup your outlay. Rant Over

Well 4.45 today in around 45 mins again. Sore left lower back going down through bum into hamstring and calf tight clicking feeling from inside left kness. Shoot me now !!

AG - you have lost me with the science, I just go out and run !!!

Good going B2B

JR sorry haven't read back but what prize did you win and go you !!!!!

Right day off today so going out for a run - will be just the usual slow not so far plod but hey it all counts to getting the weight off and one run nearer the Great Scottish half next year !!

Got some bloke coming round tonight thanks to the wife who wont say no to any salesman who knocks on our door. Wants me to have solar panels on the roof to save about 20p a year !! Says its all free we don't pay a penny yeah right. My first question : If it costs me nothing to have big panels on my roof and a team of men taking all day putting them up whats in it for you? How do you make money?

B2B fantastic effort - you never fail to amaze me.
