A good turn out tonight with yesterday’s Paisley 10k the talk of the run. More about that later.
I spent the evening chasing Donald and Derek and worked hard. My garmin wasn’t working too well tonight. The funny thing is I ordered a new 205 this morning and then tonight my 101 wouldn’t work so that was good timing! I’m looking forward to trying out the 205 – especially as you can download the information on the computer. I did look at the new 405 but a few of the reviews I read said the beval doesn’t work too well when it is wet or the runner gets sweaty and since we live in Scotland and I sweat a lot when I run I thought it was a good idea to give that a miss!
This week my focus is the Glasgow Half Marathon on Sunday so I’m planning to run after tonight, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and then give myself a couple of days off before Sunday.

Secondly congratulations to those who ran in the Paisley 10k yesterday. This is a race organised by Kilbarchan AAC and a number of friends ran. A special mention to my whw support runners …
Donald Petrie who won the M50 category (and 14th overall) in 34mins 46secs. We were chatting the other day about the age graded performances and this equates to 88.6% – very impressive!
… and Stevie Hards who finished 40th in 37mins 37secs
The feeling from a number of the runners was that the course may have been about 300m short so we’ll see.
