LMH, 6 dec is the east district champs and I would really like to run well in them. Looking increasingly unlikely now though, my whole foot is sore today, the pain has spread a fair bit.

Lyrics, yes!!

Results from Saturday make good reading for me. East of Scotland league, 62nd position, 12th guy over 40. Really pleased with that, considering i never made it into the top 100 last year! 4th counter for Lothian in ky final run in their colours- a good way to end a 19-year relationship!! Amazing what a month of training with real fast folk can do!!

6 miles tonight, 46 mins. Foot sore. Am going to tough it out till Dec 6th then take a break and heal the foot.

Lyrics, nope!

Tried to run but failed miserably on two counts.  PF is agony today so every step painful and secondly my back is sore and I can't even stand straight!  And I thought XC was good for me!! lol I am sure I'll be back to normal tomorrow.

lyrics, yes

Alehouse, that's good to hear some positive feedback about the school

East district XC league meeting today, had a real 'race within a race' which was great. Conditions underfoot were as bad as I have ever seen and we all finished like we had been wallowing in the mud, never mind running through it! 

I started at a sensible pace pace and within a mile, found myself in a group of 5 runners, me from Lothian (still not officially in Central AC yet), one from Central, Kinross, Dundee Hawkhill and Edinburgh AC.  We battled away constantly during the 3 lap race, each of us having different parts of the course on which to excel.  I was leading the group near the end of lap 2 but was last of the five on the stony path section of lap 3 - my spikes kept hitting stones!   Fought back on the hills though and made a massive effort up the final hill to lead the group but one guy went past me on the final 400 yds and I couldn't get him back.  Dont know my position but I think it was my best XC so far - the results will tell the truth of that, or not as the case may be! 

next race will be in new club colours.  Got a bit of stick from both clubs today so expecting more of the same - all in good fun, of course!

lyrics, nope.


PS can hardly move tonight!!
