Oof, what a tough day for running. Very windy and a bit damp, typical XC I suppose! Ran a decent leg but my time was surprisingly slower than last year which was disappointing. Mind you, I was in significant discomfort from knee pain and PF pain before the start so it took ages to warm up. Will see if everyone else is a bit slower too. I gave it my all which is what is important. ???

My 1st XC outing of the season today - the National XC relays in Cumbernauld - just a 2.5 mile blast around a hilly circuit.  Not running until after 3pm though so it's a long day of waiting!  Not expecting too much today, it's been an October holiday of excess food+drink and less running than usual so that will have an effect methinks.  Looking forward to it though!  Might be my last event with my current running club.

Went along to Central AC and joined them for training tonight. It was awesome! After a long warm up, we did some relay thing in pairs for half an hour. Great doing a session in company for a change. Must have covered a good 6 miles. Nice.

Lyrics, nope.

Back from my extended weekend break with the mrs - and lovely it was too!

Sunday: 6 miles from Kentallen to Ballachulish and back - flat course, along the coast, beautiful. 44 mins.

Monday: 6.5 miles from Kentallen to Duror and back - hilly route, undulating, beautiful! 48 mins.

Tuesday - arrived home late-ish, 4.1 miles inc 20 x 30s fast, 30s slow.

Today:  8 miles steady in 57:36.  Good to be home!

Lyrics, nope!

Resting today, did head out but knee very sore and tight so correct decision to give it a miss. Taking the mrs for a long weekend up North this afternoon. Luxury, loads of swims, saunas and seafood! Great!! Got my running gear packed too!

Lyrics, naw.

My wife drove me out to her work in Callendar and I ran home in a bit of a rainstorm and windy conditionss, which meant that I never really enjoyed it. 12.4 miles in the bag though, I will take that!

Lyrics, nope.

Happy anniversary birkmyre, good effort getting a run in on your wedding day!

6 miles this morning in 41:06. Increasing the pace of my training runs in an effort to increase race pace. I know it doesn't always work like that but worth a try!

Lyrics, not a hope in hell.

I was standing in the kitchen this morning in my running kit - did not want to go out at all.  Forced myself out the door, jogged for a few miles and thought I'd better make an effort to make something of the run.  I find the minute fast/slow session can lift me from any running boredom so started that after 3 miles and powered along quite nicely, doing 20 reps.  That was another 5 miles done so with 2 miles warm down, I did 10 in all.  Not bad for an unmotivated run!! 

Lyrics, nope.
