Today is the 22nd December - less than 6 months to the 2008 West Highland Way race. And today the training for the 2008 race started in earnest. 22 of us met at Milngavie Station earlier this morning for the traditional pre Christmas run to Drymen and back (with of course a stop in Drymen for a coffee and scone). It was a great day out - fantastic to meet up with so many old faces, plus quite a few new ones. On the way out the conditions were really icy, which made running very difficult in quite a few place, and caused quite a few potentially nasty falls -thankfully no-one was badly hurt, apart from a bit of bruised pride.
We reached the cafe in Drymen in a fast 1.59, then came back in an even faster 1.52. 25 and a half miles in total. All in all a great session.
John K has already posted an excellent report and video clips:
and I'm sure Marco and Debbie will have something to say in due course:
and maybe even Tim, but he hasn't blogged for ages :)
