14.1 miles this morning.  Lovely run from wifes work back home via Stirling uni.  Really enjoyable.

Was away hillwalking at the weekend, just managed the one Munro due to awful weather but had a good weekend away. 

Lyrics, nope!

Morning all.

Off to Aviemore after work this evening for 2 or 3 nights of walking and drinking, but not necessarily in that order!  Got a few munros planned but it will be very snowy on the hills so have planned long runs on the flat if the weather doesn't suit.  Meeting up with loads of folk from a hillwalking website, should be fun! 

LLyrics, yes indeed!

wabo, see that thing you said about the flashing in your eyes.  I get that a fair bit.  i get this flashing sensation, start to feel lit headed and get significant blind spots which have affected my runs once or twice.  Only lasts up to 15 mins. I was diagnosed with non-painful migraines.  Doesn't make any sense to me but that's what the doc said.

7 miles tonight, 52:30.  Felt good.

Lyrics, yes.

LMH, she runs once in a blue moon, so not really.  She just knows what's good for me! 

Club night tonight, likely to be 800m reps.  

Lyrics, nope.

lol there is always hope as long as there is Frazzles!

Forced myself out for 4 miles, just back in.  Well, to be honest, my wife I mean inspired me to get out!  Not as breezy as earlier.

Glad I did it.

AOH - definitely horrid Henry today - the winds are getting worse here and are going to peak later today/tonight and last well into tomorrow.  All the kids here are running around screeching every time they get caught by a strong gust or a sudden downpour!

LMH, as I sat chomping through a packet of Frazzles last night, I thought the same! lol.

Meant to go out this morning but storm Henry sounded bad so I had an extra half hour in bed.  Still on call tonight but I'll get out at some point.

Lyrics, yes indeed!

Alehouse, nothing at all planned as my current level of fitness is poor.  I'm aiming to do the 4 Polaroid 10K races again in May/June so trying really hard to be fit for them.  I'm really frustrated by my weight - over 50 miles done this week and not an ounce off.    I'll just keep plodding away!

Some running OL.  Over 4 hrs worth - what an effort.  My standard parkrun time last summer was about 18:30 or so (I dipped down to 18:02 but that was a one off) and I did 2 10K races in precisely 38 mins so I think you'll be able to give it a good go and you'll smash your PB no matter what!

165 for January, a bit disappointing but did take 8 days off.
