Its now five weeks to the HF and trainings going well. The last 2wesks having seen high mileage and very hilly courses. This week seen a crazy training run from Balmaha to Rowardennan a climb up Ben Lomond and return trip to Balmaha 23miles and 5500ft of climbing..legs sore today. I had arranged to climb Ben Lomond with two friends Mahria and Assunta and as I was late they set off before me so had some catching up to do, great day out on the hill.

Trainings now in full swing for the Highland Fling with The West Highland Way Race to follow.
Recent weeks have seen training runs from Milngavie to Drymen and back with the ladies from the running club who are taken part in the Highland Fling Relay Race. Last week seen my long run cut short due to snow on Conic Hill, I intended to start Drymen to Rowardennan and back but moved to Balmaha to Rowardennan and back with some extra miles gained by running round some of the forestry tracks at the bottom of Ben Lomond. The route from Drymen to Rowardennan is a real roller-coaster section on the WHW. I now need to arrange three more training day for the Relay Team as I still think there is a good chance they will get lost. Ive now printed off each section of maps for them so hopefully they should be Ok....
