Chilli..........Rock and Roll say its because of lack of local support and from the council  probably means not enough entrants and that maybe Edinburgh Council were asking for more money for road closures etc than they were prepared to pay. They should never had advertised the event if they hadn't had it all secured. Its the folk that who were coming to visit here and run the race that I feel sorry for. At least I will get my money back but will make me really think before entering any other R&R events.. Money grabbing torags.  On the up side though it means we can go our Chico holiday a day early Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We are going to go to  a wee cottage up in the North of Scotland Not far from Wick in a place called Keiss.Its near the beach and harbour and has lots of lovely cliff walks. Of course I will take my running stuff too

Lainey well done on your run today with your friend. Nice to have company.Not tried the ice bath thingy as it would be toooooooooooooo cold for me.

Chilli....your cake sounds delish  I have made a chocolate cake

Oh and one of my events this year has been cancelled The Edinburgh Rock and Roll gutted as I loved this race the past twice I have done it. Feel sorry for the people who have paid for flights and accommodation as even though we get a refund on the race I am sure folk will be out of pocket for flights and accommodation booked.

They had better not cancel the Lisbon one in October or I will be really really angry

Chilli Pleased to hear you are on the mend and got out for a 5k run yesterday. Small steps and you will soon be back stronger than ever.

Managed 8.8 mile this morning  

Spartak The very best of luck for Sunday at the Inverness Half. Hope the weather is kind to you  Am so jealous of you doing the Highland Fling Relay. My running club tried to enter 2 relay teams but we didn't get in  It is a very popular event now.

Have a good day everyone

Hi everyone

Just a quick check in from me too

Jude Well done on your fastest 5k time of 24 mins.Impressive young lady. And Good luck with swimming comp.It will be a good prize to win.

MC Well done on your 15 miles and turbo session plus your 4 miler today. You are very busy with all your training.

AF I know what you mean hubby said the same and I don't think they even do a mens ONLY race.Enjoy your 18 miler.

Deejay Sorry to hear about the terrible time you have been having. I am so glad you did not get flooded. Hopefully once you finish up at work that things will get better for you and your family.

I have been very busy at work but did manage an interval session yesterday. Will hopefully get a longer one done in the next 2 days as on days off.

Will catch up soon folks Have a good evening

I did my ladies 10 mile road race yesterday but was 3 mins slower than last year  Felt terrible in the 1st half of the race but managed to turn it around in the 2nd half of the race and upped my pace otherwise it would have been a dreadful outcome for me Ha ha...1st half took me 50mins and 2nd half was 40 1.30.52 overall.Fairly happy but bit disappointed I didn't PB but all in all a brill race to do as the club is so friendly and you get a good food at the end with lots of sandwiches,sausage rolls and CAKES galore....Will be putting it in my diary again for next year. Don't think it was a great idea to be doing 2 races a week apart. Note to self NOT to do that again

HI Guys

Sound like everyone has been training well with lots of  long mileage being recorded. Well done everyone.

Nandy pleased the knee is better. Must be such a relief for you.

Chilli I echo MC thoughts. Please take it easy and don't push yourself to quickly.

My Trail race went well.It was knee deep in mud at parts and the weather was extremely horrible..horizontal rain and very windy.Very challenging conditions indeed.Ha ha. I also slipped so was covered in mud down my left hand side...hehee. Amazed I only slipped the once. One poor guy fell face forward into the loch...he was charging by fast and slipped going part one of the single track bits and kinda just fell right in.....oops he was alright and just got back up and carried on as you

The only downside of the race was that the distance was wrong..We only ran 13k instead of 15k due to a missing sign at one part of the course...The organizers think this had been removed by someone who has a grievance with the club..shocking really and we all felt a bit cheated at not having run the full 15k. My time for the race was 1.15.53 so not too bad and if I had done the 15k would probably had made it under the 1.30hrs.

Next race for me Sunday 10 mile road wont be any mud at that...ha ha
