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!!

Adhbru - Hi, how's things?

Mrs Mac - no sitting around for you! Well done in Donegal!!

11 miles for me this afternoon taking in Wideford hill, help it was hard. Not getting fit very fast!

TP - that's a shame about getting lost and timed out, but still an achievement!

57.5, well done in Nairn, may even have been watched by one of my daughters! Not as impressive as it sounds the shield as lots of folk away/injured/post wedding so there were only 2 vet women running. Still I was happy with a finish and will be even happier if my leg behaves after.

Windy? Here? Would you believe it? fortunately it wasn't so bad this morning!

My daughter was in Nairn yesterday and saw the half - one on my to do list some day - how did it go 57.5.

The forecast heavy wind and rain for Kirkwall half haven't arrived yet!

Good running FFB and Tricia, can't remember my last long run!

BM - you're busy at the minute!

Where's TP - hopefully on holiday, need to hear how her 100 went!

Sorry , have been neglecting the place too, due to my lack of any running of consequence. Have however been wondering how TP got on at the weekend - anyone know?

Altitude session sounds interesting FFB, how do they do that? Have only ever been to about 11-12000 feet but walking not running, seemed to be OK but I believe it's a very variable thing with no relationship to general fitness.

Finally seem to be making some progress but have reluctantly decided that local HM this weekend would be a bad idea, managed 10 m at the weekend with no ill effects but don't want to be back not running again for weeks. Hoping to do Bisgeos 12 m run in a fortnight instead.

Enjoyed watching them ride through familiar streets on my TV!!

Hard work BM but sure you enjoyed it too.

TP enjoy the tapering! We'll be hoping for a good race report come next week!

Rehab running continuing OK so far, round Mull Head on Sat, always a tough but short one and a few more miles today. Scared to increase it yet. Windy here.
