Shame for CC - such appalling weather to be out in though,hope she manages
to get home without too much hassle in these conditions. Well done on getting so far.

Only managed 8.3 miles myself, it's been worse than previous days, reduced to a standstill at points and then when I gave up and cut through town a horrible hail
and lightning storm, so glad to get home!

In the spirit of supporting CC I have just been out in gales, sleet, hail and lightning, but only for 12.5 miles. Was enough, fun but going into the wind was
slow stuff!

Hope she keeps warm and safe!

TP - relaxing gardening - is that possible!

CC - all the very best with the Spine and hope for decent weather for you. Is there any way of following the race? I hope to do Dirty 30 again just so long as I can avoid injury but so far dont' want to be too optimistic.

A poor year mileage wise for me, I stopped counting when I got injured in Feb, lots of bike miles though which I guess was something and even a few swim ones!

Yet again entered Loch katrine, would be nice to actually end up running it for a change, if not I may be marshalling again too! Where is your 72 hour event Mrs Mac?

Not too bad a start to the year here running wise.

Oh no TP, my oven keeps switching itself off at the minute so can sympathise but behaved itself yesterday and had a pretty good day albeit minus half the family!

Just in from a slippery slidey 8 miles, had to change route umpteen times in the hope of finding less icy ground but it was all bad so just glad to get home in one piece! Roads and pavements icy as anything and ungritted. Stay safe everyone!

Happy Christmas to all even TP who is not in the mood for it!

Just glad to be off work for a day or two after a busy week and hope Tricia isn't too busy!

Finally got a short run last night, lots of cooking and food today and hope for a Boxing Day run tomorrow.

TP - out in it too, and in running clothes, but more layers of them than you can imagine and I was quite fine. Not making much headway when into the wind though!
Worse was driving to the airport last night in a really heavy hail shower, couldn't see a thing and was crawling along!

Don't blow away everyone!

Been awol a week or two, trip to Manchester to see Peter's Dad in hospital combined with ferry trip from hell last weekend! Glad to hear that you are feeling better TP and hope everyone else is fine. Not much on the horizon for me until next year. Would potentially be interested in DOTH too if fit, prev need for support was keeping me away from it. But need to be free from injury.

Hoping to hear more about your volcano experience FFB but you did really well!

Running ticking over, routes a bit limited with no daylight and having to work more to make up for a wee bit of time off to go south.

Speaking of choc just won two boxes in a guess no of marbles in a jar thing at weekend!

TP - sounds nasty and you've been ill for quite a while. Hope it is just a bug, worth getting a doc to take a look at you?

Nice day here, legs still tired from GO though. 9 miles with the gang and then an hour on the bike to give my stumpy legs a rest! Followed by coffee and scones with running friends. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday!

A bit tired after GO33 this week and the travelling back. Made it out for a 5 miles in a slightly breezy Orkney gale last night! Fun in a sort of way!

Hope everyone's niggles settle down and that Audrey has a great time with her volcano!
