Enjoy Mrs Mac - I can't imagine doing ultras 2 weekends running, makes me feel inadequate!

Tricia, I hope so, I held onto my place in the hope that I'd be a bit fitter but am going to give it a go anyhow. Back of the field is where I'll be too. I can manage 15-16 miles no great problem I think but haven't really gone over that, apart from my great glen day out so the second half could be slow and painful!

Just going to look into accommodation and travel today, didn't want to book anything in case I got injured again!

Pleasant ten miles with some friends today, weather cheered up though it's windier than has been for a while, sunny and mild. Hope the calf clears up tricia.

Turned rather wintry overnight here, so going to be a blowy run this morning!

Continue to struggle with learning front crawl, I'm so slow at it that I get out of the pool shivering. Guess I should finish off with a few lengths faster breast stroke!

Have a nice weekend all!

Good to see you two too FFB, no one else I knew there, but shame you weren't so well on the run.

I'd be interested in the ultra recce if I'm fit (so much less stress than the real events though I guess not for the organiser!).

Lovely still autumn day here and after a late call in to work last night got myself going for a 16m predominately trail run from Stromness to Yesnaby. A little soggy but lovely, tired last few miles, really don't know if I'll handle an ultra in 2 weeks!

Back from hols, GGW 19 miles longest run in months survived while Peter did Loch NessMara, thoroughly enjoyed the day despite a couple of detours and getting serious chaffing on my collarbones from using Peter's ultrapac, wanted to try it, not for me! Thanks 57.5 for rote advice!

Nice mara work TP, now have a rest!

Few shorter but interesting runs while on Switzerland hols, up Utliberg the hill in Zurich and 10k at 1500m elevation which was hard and hilly but lovely.

Now what, I have an entry for Glen Ogle but my longest run is 19 miles, can I make it?

Good to see Mr and Mrs FFB at Loch Ness!

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!
