Good luck everyone for Loch Katrine tomorrow, runners, marshals and organisers .

Lovely day today, took the road bike out to shake the cobwebs off (been using my hybrid through the Winter), went over the moors and did some of the Strathaven 50 route. Lots of climbing to get there. Usually a wind tunnel but today was just a light breeze . Loads of people out doing stuff, cyclists, horses, walkers.

Hope this good weather lasts through Sunday .

It was light, then it got dark (ish), now its light again. About as interesting as watching paint dry .

Total eclipse, total eschmips !

Even the cat yawned...

Oooh jealous of Austria trips - lovely .

Off to Italy next week . No idea whether will run, looks like it might be too dodgy unless I can find some trails.

Run later...

Well done D33'ers .

Nice weekend here, dry, hardly any wind, chilly clear air. Did 6hrs building and digging up at the allotment on Sunday afternoon, cracking on getting the plot whipped into shape, took a massive nose bag of food with me ...for digging sustainance of course! Arms knackered from lifting rocks, but at least my back doesn't ache as much the next day so must be getting fitter? 

Stayed late to avoid the football traffic. Plots are at the top of a big hill and the air was so still I could here the Hampden roar and chants coming from 3miles away ! Bonkers...

10miles run done today, perfect conditions.

Good luck for the D33 MrsMac .

Think the forecast is meant to be better for this weekend, which means I can finally crack on with some Spring planting up at the allotment, last few weeks been a bit of a wash-out. Hopefully get some cycling in too.

Looking at getting my entry in for Balfron 10k fairly soon, and then maybe Loch Leven half in May, never done that one but it will fit nicely timing wise with my build up to Strathearn.

Hideous weather now, just back from 8m, being lashed by the wind and rain.

The Milngavie to Drymen stretch of WHW is nice, and often overlooked in favour of the more 'glamorous' Northern parts. I like the muddy Mugdock bit and out past the huts .

Always room for more on here .

Strathearn still open for entries as far as I'm aware.

Hellish wind down here too .

Stromness to Birsay is quite a long way, did you go across Yesnaby? That must have been very wild! Done Skaill to Birsay, very exposed in places even in the Summer .

Hilly long run yesterday, got stopped in tracks a few times. Building up the long runs gradually now, 12wks till Strathearn marathon. Need to get the drinks and nutrition sorted as my stomach has been dodgy on the last few toward the end.

Cycling today because I thought it looked a bit better, but still had a bit of a battle over the higher parts. At one point I got hit by a freak hail storm and a massive gust of wind pushed me completely across the road, so I had to stop and walk until I got to a more sheltered bit. Luckily it was out in the country so no cars about at the time .

At least it is milder now, if it was freezing cold combined with this bloody wind I wouldn't be out cycling .

Freezing cold wet 10miles for me today. Gloves got wet and then the cold seeped up my arms, hideous!!
