Running in Inverness

We had a nice break in Inverness for a few days.  Jo & Jono are away so we stayed in their lovely cottage.  I went for a couple of runs and we climbed Ben Wyvis.

Monday 13th October – 6.35mile road run

I did an out and back route as it’s harder to get lost that way. I went early while it just dark and enjoyed the run. Just under 8min per mile pace.

Monday 13th October – walk up Ben Wyvis

We both really enjoyed the walk. The weather was excellent with blue skies and great views.

We went up and down the same route …wyvis route


Here are a few photos ….

Back at the car park …wyvis 6


There were a few others climbing the Ben including a couple who ran up and down.  We both agreed how much easier it was to walk up rather than run!

Tuesday 14th October – off road run 6.07miles

This morning I went for an other early morning run before we packed up and headed back to Paisley.  This time I explored the woods close to Jo & Jono’s house.  Again I went for an out and back.

After a couple of miles I felt a slight pain in my groin which stayed with me until the end. I’m hoping it’s nothing serious!

Tomorrow we fly to Amsterdam for a few days. My sister’s son Steve is getting married to Marlies on Friday in a place called Zutphen.  We are looking forward to our little holiday. We have booked a 3hr cycle tour of Amsterdam tomorrow and plan to hire biked on Saturday and go for a ride.

I’m also hoping to go on a couple of runs no doubt alongside a canal!
