Good week Ollie.  Nice running today.

Just 5.5 hilly miles for me today, from Blackford to Glendevon reservoir, on the hunt for Ospreys but no luck today.  Beautiful run though and took the dog.

Lyrics, don't think so.

Still Acting head poppy but hoping for the permanent post in the future.

3.3 miles in about 32 mins.  Nice and slow, everything good in the heart dept but still sore inner thigh.  Will start a new streak though and plod happily.

Well done Blisters, good going.

Well, Thursday night, went into AF.  Took my Flecainide but it never worked.  Had to go in and get cardioversion yesterday despite it being the biggest day of my working life in 23 years - last day of term and my 1st Grand Day as head teacher.  Terrible timing!

Anyway, all well now and health comes first. Will try to get out for a wee jog later.

Lyrics, yes!

After a 17 day streak, I am resting today as I think I have a groin strain from the football last week.  Struggling to run at any pace and always in pain for the last week, time to rest and see if it makes a difference.

Will def. start the streak thing again though, it works for sure!

Happy Birthday Pammie, hope you have a great day.

well done emzap, sounds really tough.

11.2 miles this morning, mixed terrain and tough going.  Left the house at 7 so probably too early as well, resulting in slow pace.  

Lyrics. Yes!

Hope it doesn't come to much alehouse.

Dustin, hope your club marathon goes well.

LMH, not this year - legs still too sore from Tues football.

7 miles this morning, easy running, nice and slow.

Just a wee 3 miler after school sports day, where 400m GB international Jamie Bowie presented the prizes.  Good to have a chat with him.

LMH, I think 3 miles is my absolute minimum - it kind of has to be that now because one day last week, I only managed 3 miles!  It's an interesting concept for me to never have a rest day but it suits me just now - I come back from work so tired that I know I wouldn't bother going out - the only thing that sends me out is to keep the streak going. I realise I'll get my proper motivation back when work 'equalises', as it always does.  Summer holiday starts next Friday so I hope that I'll get back into a good running routine and will be able to up the miles for the ultra.  When that happens, it might be more important to have a rest day each week but we'll see.  

I'll never catch alehouse and Ollie though - they are excellent streakers! 

Excellent reps Ollie, well done.

4 miles for day 13 of my streak.  Legs in utter agony after footie 48 hours ago, worse than marathon running!

Dustin, I wore my Garmin just for interest only!

5K charity run at school today. Went perfectly, a great event involving the whole school. I even danced! 21:20 or so, 8th place. Wish my students were fitter!!
