What a day the Gibbering Midget and I had on the Way on Saturday. Although it was close to freezing, the sun was shining and the views were spectacular.

We started at Croftamie and took the number seven cycle route (which I'm sure must circumnavigate the globe) on to the West Highland Way, two miles from Drymen. Over Conic hill and then back on the track by the road. A crackin' 15 mile circular route.

It's quite challenging on the ol' pins, as it's every so slightly undulating. Average 10.04 m/m which is not too shabby...considering.

Yesterday I went out for a four mile recovery and my legs felt great. Tonight I'm off to the new all-singing, all-dancing track to Scotstoun. Well, all going to plan I'll be going to the track.

Sounds like a cracking route. I will need to go on it one day. Well done, a hilly route especially after last weeks run.

Photos are fab, Debs. You are making me very jealous! It was an absolutely gorgeous day on Saturday and I was able to have my own adventure at our Hares and Tortoise race. I made Iain Beattie run for his life to try and catch up the other hares as I was the slowest Tortoise! Good speed work for him! Hee Hee.

Glad your training is going well. Your on darn good form so early in the year and after such a long run last weekend.

Debs, remember there is no Conic hill in London!
Do the Fling!
The Fling needs you. London doesn't.
