Still smiling - and eating - after yesterday's Loch Leven half marathon. Settled quickly, nice pace and kept it going all the way. But still surprised when I clocked the time at the finish. New PB 1:33:20. 7 mins quicker than Alloa. Training starts again on Tuesday! #ukrunchat

I'd given myself until the end of the year to try and run a sub 20 minute 5k. This happened today at Edinburgh #parkrun. At 3k I was so tired and the boy in front had a t-shirt with #thismancan on the back. I focused on that for the last 2k and clung on. So chuffed. Now to do that on the courses with hill climbs....

No #parkrun at St Andrews this morning. So took myself along the #fifecoastalpath from #Sauchope to #Kingsbarns and back, 10 miles. Beautiful morning for it and an amazing place to run (wish I'd worn the trail shoes though). What started off as a means to an end is firmly an end in itself. Oh and if you are ever in Kingsbarns, head to the beach to visit @thecheesytoastshack, friendly welcome and great scran, Mac and cheese toastie highly recommended! #ukrunchat

Senga clearly not happy after George came off at the wrong junction. This nearly had me lying on a garage forecourt in tears of laughter.

Back again! Another braw walk through #Pittencrieff Park to clear out the cobwebs.

parkrun here at #Pittencrieff Park this morning, then back again this afternoon to feed the squirrels and get an ice cream (squirrels got rich teas!). I hope you are enjoying your Summer, Scotland!

Brilliant day yesterday at my 1st half marathon in Alloa. Thanks to a ton of people who made it a special day. 1hr40:23. Ready to go again! #alloahalfmarathon #alloahalf #ukrunchat

#parkrun 20 today and so close to a sub20 (the goal by end of 2017). But still so chuffed with this and have a few great pacers to thank for it. This would've seemed impossible back in August. Time for a beer (maybe two).

#Glasgow. Tonight's view from the #squintybridge

Rest day before Devilla 15k tomorrow. So me and @rooroo8925 volunteering at #Dunfermline #parkrun. Cowbells and clappers making plenty of noise to cheer on all the parkrunners. Next step is to get the trainers on Roo! #parkrunuk

The trail running adventure planning starts here....bring on the #bothy.

Knocked a big chunk off the 5k PB in Kirkcaldy yesterday. The 460 calories it told me I'd burned have been consumed 10 fold in celebration! 41 seconds to find by the end of 2017. #parkrun
