Yesterday Katrina & I had a walk up Ben Lomond. A friend in our church was doing a sponsored walk asked us to join her and her Mum. We don’t need asking twice to get out and have a walk. Th weather forecast until the morning was for a clear day but alas the forecast we saw before leaving was for a low cloud base and some rain and that’s waht we got.
We set off from Rowardennnan at 10.20am in clear weather …
|Me, Kayleigh, Katrina and Lorraine|
Kayleigh had never climbed a Munro before so was quite excited and a little apprehensice about how hard it might be. In the end she lead the whole way and was fine. The cloud base was about 1,000t ft and it was pretty cold and wet for most of the way.
We took about 2hrs 20mins to reach the top ….
So a good day out and hopefully Kayleigh raised some money. They are certainly keen to do it again when the weather is better so they can see the views I tried to explain to them!
Back at work today and the sun was shining. At least I was able to go for a run at lunch time. For the first time this year I was able to walk back to work in shirt sleeves still feeling hot.
I ran a steady 5miles today making sure my breathing was well under control. I ended up at 7.48 pace with an average heart rate of 134 which feels good. Movescount have revamped their web site so here’s a look at the new heart rate graph …
Tomorrow I’m looking forward to running from Drymen to Balmaha and back with Katrina, Jonny and Steve. I hope the weather is as good as today but the forecast is for rain!
