Run no 91

Last of the long runs before Inverness. A nice leisurely 10 miler, nothing too strenuous, got a 5, a 4 and a 2 before the big day.

Run no 90

Did my 5 miler. Run itself was fine tho running along roads in the dark isn't something I'd really recommend, especially when a car full of youths think it'd be hilarious to scream at you as they drive past missing you by inches.

Run no 89

Down in Leeds yesterday and never got home till late. The fact that it was pitch dark put paid to any run. Got out tonight and did a 7.5m, first couple of miles were hard going probably down to the fact I was wearing a long sleeved top and it felt very close and sticky.

Run no 88

Cracked out a very enjoyable and quick 13 miler in the pissing rain this morning. Got around in 1.54.28 averaging 8.51 min/miles.

One more biggie next Sun then it's the real deal.

Run no 86

DIY put paid to my run on Sunday, T not getting in until late on Mon and Tues put paid to runs on these days. Got out tonight and did my 8 miler in reverse. Didnt bother timing it but it felt fairly quick and comfortable, I'll take that any day of the week.

Run no 85

Set out at 6am, it was pitch dark and pouring with rain, lovely!

Felt comfortable the whole way although I'll be glad to not have to run along that straight road to Bathgate, you put your life in your hands with the traffic.

Anyway, throughout the run I experienced torrential rain and lovely warm sun - can't beat Scotland for a variety in the weather. Got around the 20 miles in just over 3hrs 5 mins averaging 9.22 min.miles and an average heartbeat of 150 which I'm very happy with.

This is the last really long run now until Inverness. Glad to report the leg felt fine all the way round.

Out for some beer with a few Rodents tonight.

Reckon it'll taste like nectar.

Run no 84

Did a 5 miler, apart from having a numb face from the dentist earlier I felt very comfortable.

Kinda odd, I feel over the past few weeks I've hardly ran much although apart from a couple of missed days I've always met my quota distance wise.

Got my last big run before Inverness with a 20 miler on Sat.


Run no 83 - Wed 08/09/10

Did a 6 miler with Tommy, nice and relaxed and enjoyable.

What running is all about.

Run no 82

Set out at 7am this morning and evne then I could feel it warming up. Run fel harder than normal, not quite sure why but I did run it almost 4 minutes quicker than Fri so I shouldn't be surprised it felt harder. Completed it just over 1hr 29m averaging 9.01 min / mile.

Run no 81

Had a terrible sleep last night and woke up feeling like I was comimg down with a flu bug. Felt pretty crap most of the morning although started to feel better in the afternoon. Managed to get myself out for a 10 miler and had a surprisingly good run. Got around in 1hr 32mins.

Quite looking forward to my day off tomorrow.

Run no 80

7.46 miler tonight. went out before tea and felt a bit 'weak' for the first 2 miles, settled in and ran a steady 1hr 8mins, second quickest on that run so quite happy.
