Afternoon All

Nandy Sounds like you have been training well. Well done on the payrise.

Jo Well done on giving blood and our run. you are thinking of another mara...just take it easy young lady.well done on your runs so far.fantastic.

Lainey What AF says..sometimes runs don't go the way we want them too. Have had my fair share of that and in races too. You just try and pick the positive out of them and get back out there feeling stronger.

AF You are as speedy as ever I see...I will not be able to keep up with you when you come to Edinburgh.

Me and Chico made the most of the lovely sunny weather by taking him on my long slow run today along the canal into the water of leith and back home. A TOTAL OF 14.2 miles which is Chico's longest run to date. WHAT A WEE STAR we averaged just around 10 min miles and that was including pee and sniff stops  for him not me...ha ha.

Have a good day everyone

Well we went for our run in the hills and had sunshine,hail and very very strong winds which at some points we were barely moving. We did 8.7 miles but walked up the very steep muddy hills. Tired doggy and tired Franny  but we are HAPPYEEEEEEEEEEE

AF Wow well done on your 18.1 miles and very speedy too.   Think we must have crossed posts LOL See my explanation above BOSS looks like the same reason as the New Forest. Its not the Edinburgh Half in May AF but the Rock and Roll which was scheduled for June this year.

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
