Slowly getting to grips with my new camera and my new photo host.
Need to do a lot of work on my workflow – too many steps at the moment.
Toying with the idea of doing a photo based treasure hunt – anyone up for that idea?
In light of the security news coming from Yahoo (500m passwords and security questions leaked, installing a rootkit allowing “anyone” to access all your mails) I’m doing all I can to cut my ties with them.
Flickr is the problem – I need to keep this active as this is the mechanism to publish photos to the parkrun website. However I will no longer be posting any “personal” photos to Flickr going forwards.
Please bear with me as I’m getting to grips with both a new photo site and a new camera.
Hectic weekend but that’s the first phase of the garden improvements almost done. Ten made to measure raised beds build.
Last few steps – build the flat packed wheelbarrow!
Who sells a flatpacked wheelbarrow – Argos of course – you have to carry it out of the shop! PS if you are buying a wheelbarrow from Homebase in Hamilton check them carefully – both that I looked at had bolts missing.
Once it’s built – the rhubarb and the compost bin needs moved then it’s time to get the beds filled.
After uploading the photos from Saturday’s parkrun I thought I would have a quick look at my Flickr stats to see what my most popular photos have been (not that I take photos for other people of for the stats but ….)
I have tried to be provocative with my titles – “Something Dirty”
which came in at number 10.
Found this as a “beginners” workout – killed me – never even got to the third round. Every muscle in my body is screaming !
Try a training plan, which will help you strengthen your whole body in many planes. And moreover, you will enjoy it.
Following my recent groin strain – stop sniggering at the back – that’s me back running again.
Slow and steady – but I never did run any other way !
It’s a cause close to my heart and I will be fundraising for MND Scotland in memory of my brother Derek and my daughter Emma.

Just like the true athlete that I am what else would I do the day before the loch ness marathon but run another parkrun?
The walk to the event gave me a good opportunity to walk the last mile of the marathon, I doubt it will be that quiet tomorrow!
Here’s to a nice gentle run today, ticking off another Scottish parkrun.
