After snow showers this am promising good conditions for the skiing and bright skies at time the weather was chill and crisp and so Liz and I wrapped up well for her post skiing run which the (now) obvious resuly that we were heavy around the waste with excess jackets by the time we reached the turn round point. A good fresh run to end the week....

A good if tiring run on Sunday pulled a,long by three men from the jogscotland group, not actually pulled along you understand but encouraged along kindly as they pretended to be tired to match my pace. Still, 1:33 so not too displeased with that. The last section goes on and on with undulating hills that challenge and tire the legs. the dogs faithlessly accompanied whoever was at the front and then went with Matt (training for a marathon) to do an extra bit along the way without even a backwards look. Lucy then sat by his car willing him to take her home with him. Home again to find the deerstalkers packed and ready to go having left a wee present on the step...one deer head complete with eyes ready for Garret to remove them for the High School science teacher.....I get the nicest gifts.

As far as the dogs are concerned 8.30pm is a very silly time to have a club (Toby) that means a run filled hour for the driver (me) as it means a fruitless couple of hours buffing my knee with their heads in an increasingly desperate effort to remind the hand that feeds that it in fact has not...No food before running is the rule but boy they were ready for it by the time we got back at 10. They are getting to know the highways and byways (along the canal for 1/2 a mile or so) of the local town and even tolerated a drag along the car park past the car to make the distance up to 4 miles...hmmmm in the words of the teens of Clunarie..."sad". just realised TWO posts in a day...wow I am keen!
