Two Breweries

Easily my worst race of the year so far. Finished almost 35 minutes slower than last year in by far my slowest ever time with 3:43:26. I knew something was seriously wrong at Glenrath. After crossing Manor Water I realised that the wheels had fallen off, and braced myself for a long slow painful trudge to the end. Descending from Dead Wives Grave I was feeling so rubbish I was half thinking of packing it in at Stobo, but then again this wouldn't serve any useful purpose, and I wasn't keen to get into the habit of dropping out of races. So after a minute or so of quiet despair at Stobo I decided to continue at more or less walking pace from there to the end.

Strathclyde Loch 10k

17th September 2006
My first race and proper run since dropping out of the Mont Blanc Ultra three weeks ago. Not really race-fit at the moment, so found it harder than I was expecting. Ran most of the second half with Bellahouston's Andy Birnie, and finished 5 seconds behind Andy in 37:22. Robert Gilroy of Cambuslang won the race in 31:54, with City of Glasgow's Susan Finch finishing 1st lady in 37:47.

Loch Lomond

After Janice Mudge's funeral, I went for a quiet wander part way up Ben Lomond to watch the sunset.
