Managed a 20 today, and not feeling too bad with it. This is on top of 2 hours out in the monsoon on thurday - managed to navigate from yorkhill, up the kelvinwalkway ( via large parts of the path being under fairly deep water/ various diversions for subsidence)), to maryhill lochs, and onto the forth and clyde canal- bit dodgy in parts, that route, but perhaps I can do it again next weekend, and actually get onto the start of the Glasgow to Edinburgh route!.
Planning another 20 miler next weekend, if the oncall doesn't damage me too much, then the LK 1/2 and taper for the Glasgow to Edinburgh- still worried about mileage before the double, but not sufficiently worried to pull out- maybe I'm being stupid, we'll see!
Ski- ing as training? - not really the way we do it ( on the slopes by lunch time- 3 hrs sclepping around the blue runs, and off to the pub at 4pm!). OK . so we were at altitude, which might count for something, but we ate and drank like there's no tomorrow, so have 1/2 a stone extra, which is slowly coming off!
