Ha 57.5! I did my marathon PB at Loch Ness with toothache! Not that it was a very impressive time.

Tricia - hope Clydestride goes well for you despite the jet lag!

Glad I'm not likely to meet Mr Moose on the trail no matter how tame he is, I'm not very brave on my own!

Lots of can you just bring my....from daughter in Zurich, will be taking more things for her than for myself at this rate!

You're making the route sound quite appealing 57.5, esp the caf?? since I shan't be in any rush. But I'm not so sure about meeting Hercules! Anyone want to come and keep me company?!

Very windy here, guess the boat tomorrow wont' be the most fun!

Won't be back on for a while, going to visit off spring in Switzerland after LN.

TP - Happy belated birthday!

57.5 - thanks for that, tossing up between that and getting bus to Drumnadrochit and running back along GGW. But then I might get lost/injured etc so not sure. Funny how wouldn't worry if I was at home or in company.

Mrs Mac, I'm still hoping too though I don't know why bearing in mind that my longest run since Feb is 15 miles. You still doing it?

Enjoy Nessie and Clydestride all who are doing them!

Hi everyone, home though not for long this time. Sounds like all have been busy.

Those drop bags sound very pernickety.!

Two half maras in 2 weekends with visiting and so on in between. First Crathes which I wouldn't rush back to, bit busy (700 folk) for me and first 1.5 miles spent trying to pass all the folk walking 4 abreast or otherwise dawdling. Otherwise nice enough but quite flat.
Second was Langdale where I've done the full before and knew what awaited me, couple of big hills but easier only having to go round the once and a much friendlier race. Just scraped under 2 hours but with those hills happy enough. Good weather all week.

57.5 wonder if I could bother you for advice on a run, ideally 12-15m for next Sun around Inverness while peter is doing the marathon. Wondered about part of Great Glen Way but no idea how to get onto it or how well signed it is. Thanks.

Off to visit daughter in Zurich after that, seem to have all our hols crowded together this time but otherwise couldn't get off together. Ah well.

Well done on the 90s improvement TP - that's a lot over 10k!

FFB - anyone would think you liked cold inhospitable places!

TP - sounds like that might be a bit crowded for you these days! I still remember the end of my first ultra getting to a single flag at the end, no one much around thinking "is this it?" or a trick and another 2 miles left!

Off south for a bit of family visiting/running. Apparently am doing Crathes half tomorrow after a night on the boat, hmm, could be a PW!

Since were away have already used my postal vote, still not sure if I voted the right way!

Last I heard Mrs mac was first lady at 22 hours in but can't find final results! Well done to her. No word on FFB.

Nice running TP! Glad you can now have a shower too!

Glad I ran yesterday not today, it's pouring. As it was had a couple of light showers but otherwise a lovely day along the west coast, skaill to Birsay and back. 15m longest yet for me in a while!

When is Yorks mara then?

Hope you've got some hot water now TP!

Adbru, getting back is hard isn't it!

Speaking of which a tough wee run on Westray at the weekend, 12 mile, up and down and up and down and up to the finish! Lovely day for it with very light winds and brilliant sunshine afterwards. Great westray hospitality as always, barbecue after, walk, swim, buffet, dance, one of our group was first lady.

Next day a 10ish mile walk round the coast, lots of nettles and a beautiful beach I hadn't been to before (another short swim) and fish and chips in Pierowall before the ferry home.

Back to the grindstone Mon morning though!

tTwirly - hope you continue to feel good!

Mrs mac - very kind of you but only because the fast ladies were awol!

Don't get too attached to Dave though!

TP - I'm impressed by all your long ultras anyhow.

Another fine day here and another nice run though daughter did accuse me of self harming when came back covered in scratches, thistles and barbed wire induced!

Off to Westray for Bis Geos 12 on Sat, don't suppose the nice weather can last!

Adbru - won't take you too long to read back!!
