Life on Arran


Trail running notes on Arran plus a few other things

Winter Running

It's now March. The birds are tweeting, there is life in the garden and the temperature is rising. I've stuck to the trails I know nearby - partly because many trails on the island are more suited to hill walking boats, waders and a Goretex suit in winter.

But I've still been running. Probably around 20 miles a week. Since the Marathon de Ben Nevis, I decided to run a bit less. Still a few times a week, but don't have plans for doing anything really long in 2019. My knees were a bit achy and I think they deserved a wee rest :)

So there hasn't been any routes or trails to write about, but I have taken some great photos, which is why I'm writing this post. The photos are taken with a Google Nexus 6 phone and no filters. Pretty stunning eh?! Enjoy these winter snaps.
