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.

OH's oh here. Hi Mark, so sorry to hear about LMH's bad accident. Glad she's getting good attention and hopefully good pain relief. Best wishes from us both.

Take care of yourself too (and maybe smuggle her in your ipad!).

TP - enjoy the tapering!

57.5 - hope you have a good day at the Devil!

Still fairly dry here, treated myself to a day out on Westray with the bike yesterday, like a mini holiday, dry and not too windy until the last few miles back to the ferry, puffins, cliffs and grobust beach, lovely! A few short runs going on but not too confident about the injury yet.

Enjoying the athletics on telly, only bad thing about yesterday was folk watching boxing on the ferry on way home when I wanted to see the athletics! Would be great to be there in person I imagine!

BM - enjoy!

TP - I'm really not THAT hairy but they do seem to go for me, even Peter got a dozen or so, they seem to be bad this summer but definitely worst round Glenelg, skye and further north were fine.

TP - was sunny and about 18C here today! Then the haar arrived about 6pm and it's gone cold again! Just in time for my swim on the beach, not quite warmed up again yet.

CC and FFb - great great glen reports! And well done on the 2nd place CC.

Mrs Mac - I bet you weren't slow.

Glad you enjoyed the relay FFB, we missed it coming here as were on hols at the time. A week on the west coast, Glenelg, Skye, Raasay and the Summer Isles. Mostly warm and sunny, mainly kayaking, swimming and cycling. A few tentative runs going on but not 100% sure the leg has healed yet.
The ticks in Glenelg were ferocious, normally get one or two bites when camping but it was probably nearer to 50, nasty little things! Raasay was stunning, never been there before.
