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 49 ultras over the past twelve 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.

I’m still off work for the rest of this week so it was good to be able to go out for a run this morning.
I did three laps of Brodie Park running nice and comfortably. I feel as ready for the Devils race on Saturday as I can but I’m not really sure how I’ll run. Out of all the ultra races I’ve done over the last five years I feel the most under prepared for this one.
I’m also still committed to running without any watch. In fact I’m going to leave my garmin at home so I’m not tempted to make a last minute decision!!
I’ve asked Hollie to use my stop watch and write down my times as I go through each checkpoint as I’d like to have a look at them afterwards.
I was looking at my 2009 splits today. Here they are ….
I wonder if I’ll be any where near these times this year? It will be interesting to see.
I’ve also asked Hollie to send some updates along the way using my twitter account (which will also update my facebook and this blog) so if you want to follow my progress on Saturday you can. In fact you will probably know my split times before I do!!
My voucher for my new bike with the cyclescheme arrived the other day and my bike is now ready so this afternoon I’m off to pick it up. Expect some photos on facebook this afternoon!!
