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!

I guess it means all the uphill bits are now in the second half tricia!

TBH a bit put off by the changes though I can see why, but I've booked accommodation in Callander and have no idea how to get to and from start and finish by public transport. Plus not really being fit. Should I just stay at home?

Oh and just to complicate things my running backpack has fallen apart!

TP - sounds awful, hope you're better soon.

work seems to be getting in the way of any running this week, guess should call it tapering!

Tricia/Mrs Mac - just heard that they are now starting the race in Killin as the campsite is underwater!

Yep tricia, glad it's not this weekend, blowing a gale here, worse today than yesterday.

The sofa is indeed the place to be today, two laps of scapa on the bike were a bit interesting!

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

Wet JS run tonight.

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!
