I set up this blog (Oct 06) to record my training and thoughts in preparing for the 2007 WHW Race - a 95 mile ultra race from Milngavie to Fort William.
I have now run 39 ultras over the past ten years including the whw 6 times and you can read all about them, watch my race videos and lots more by using the tabs at the top of the blog.

At lunch time today I headed over to Bellahouston Park for a hill session. I had a school assembly after lunch so I was slightly short of time so ran 5.5miles which was about right anyway.
As I set off Andy Murray was 2-1 up and the fourth set had started. So I took my radio, tuned into to Five Live Extra and listened to the commentary. Andy won just a few minutes before I finished my run so thanks Andy for the perfect timing … and well done on reaching the final!
I was feeling a bit sluggish today so didn’t push too hard. Here is my route around Bellahouston Park …
I decided to do a slightly different route than last week. It involved two short up hills, two short down hills and a flat bit. The distance of each lap was 0.46miles and it took me around 3mins 57secs each lap.
I did four laps and then ran another couple of miles around the park. I had just enough time to shower, eat my sandwich and get to the school in time.
So rest day tomorrow and then our run on the whw. The final of the Australian Open starts at 8.30am just before we start running so if anyone is watching it and wouldn’t mind texting me the score after each set I’d be very grateful!
