    Had a club 8 mile trail race, had myself 3rd place secured when in the last mile I was caught by the lad in 4th, we had a epic battle swapping places 4 times in the last mile, running at 6 min mile pace before I pulled away in the last 800m. The last mile was the quickest one on my run.

    After some food and drink, I ran the course again at a very steady pace, I felt the last 4 mile on the second lap.

    Virtually the same but bluer skies no wind. Added a few ascents up the cliffs to get some climbing in.
    Shorts and single ss base layer......it is December yes?

    Less and less the further west you go. Ben Vorlich, Stuch, Chonzie all with just a few small pockets to nothing at all. More snow lying around the East, Cairnwell area. But not full coverage by any stretch.

    Iain I saw a photo of you (presumably on your blog?) and it looked like you'd lost weight in the last year or so. If so, how much?

    Steady 6 and a bit miles yesterday. Had Sunday lunch at the Strines inn, ran home from Moscar via redmires conduit. Necessarily slow due to the giant chillie filled Yorkshire pudding and apple pie...
    Strava claimed 1000 calories burned, I think that covers about half of lunch!

    Lost probably around a stone... but tend to put it back in easily, which doesn't bother me when I'm just training, I find that for a key race if I just eat carefully, cut drink, on 90+ miles a week weight comes off pretty quick.. especially with hard morning runs. Even a conservative estimate is around 9000 cals a week extraurnt, which is about 1/2 a weeks calories.. so it does come off quick

    I've a friend in Texas, former two time olympian, and she always thought the secret to high mileage for her was being slightly heavy, live life normally, no focus on weight, during training, then dropping for key races so I've done that this year.
