It is very mild still.

Out in t-shirt and shorts today, 8m done, getting well into this taper mode now .

Well done OH at Loch Ness, and Elspeth for managing not to get gored !

Well done Tricia and Kennyyan .

Hope the injury doesn't cause too much bother.

Lots of construction work at the allotment today and I managed to skewer my arm on a hawthorn bush whilst I was clearing some rubbish . It bled for a while but I don't think there is anything still stuck in it, but it has made a massive lump and bruise . This gardening malarkey is worse than running for cuts and scrapes!!

Elspeth - don't worry about Mr. Moose - he is apparently quite tame and was hand-reared as a calf  (although that might not be much consolation if you bump into him on the track and he is feeling frisky )!

Have a good holiday .

I read about Hercules too - poor moosey, someone should find him a mate .

Nice long-ish run today if a bit windy. Got some heavy lifting to do on plot at weekend, and then it will be taper time.

Good Luck everyone at Loch Ness and Clyde Stride!

Thanks Elspeth . Its still way off my 10k pb, but that was over 7yrs ago  and with all the long stuff I've been doing I'm just glad to come in under 55mins these days . Going to do more though and try to improve .

Slight 20secs discrepancy between their 'chip' time and my watch time, I'm not sure how their chip worked as we didn't go over a mat at the start but we did at the finish  - I think their chip time was actually a 'gun' time, somehow.

Well done on the double Halfs Elspeth. hectic week for you!

By the way, anyone travelling south to north next weekend for Loch Ness - leave loads of travel time. The Ryder Cup is on, and boy did they have the roads all set out when I went up there on Sunday, road diversions and single lane barriers / golf only traffic lanes, covering a large area from south of Stirling to north of Perth on the A9.

Couple of hours tidying on the allotment this morning and I have found a resident frog in my pond (well, its more a sunken old sink), I had no idea he was there . He was very interested in what I was doing as I was clearing around the pond and kept nebbing out of the water to see what I was up to . I am going to build him a rockery and put some wetland plants in to make a habitat, although he seems quite happy enough amongst all the muck!!

How boring - drop bags that all look the same !

Good run at Pitlochry yesterday in perfect conditions, need to wait on the official results but think I was about 90secs faster than last year and felt great despite doing a 10mile training run on Saturday . I could get to like this 10k business .

Thanks all for the Birthday wishes.

Hope the wine went down well TT.

In the end I was quite restrained and only had two Orkney beers with a take-out curry and then a nice Jura whisky before bed. Too exhausted after all the emotional strain of the voting and uncertainty.

Off for a run to stretch out a bit before my 10k tomorrow.

Yay to the Peoples Republic of Glasgow, Dundee etc - but only if we don't have to vote again .

Well done on the 12m TT - are your injuries getting better now do you think?

One birthday beer down and I was about to ask what a 'trowel rail' was because it sounded like something that would be useful at the allotment . Oh dear...

I have a lot of respect for Nicola Sturgeon so I will still be voting for SNP even though the Independence thing didn't come through. I think they have done a lot of good for this country as part of the devolved parliament. Shame Cameron wouldn't allow the 'Devo-max' option on the ballot paper in the first place though .

So, An Un-united Kingdom Awaits
