Went for my run as promised. Thought I was going for a flat 3ish miles but ended up going trail running, through the park, up a good set of steps then a 350 metres quite steep climb, got to the top, legs like jelly, glad I went. Then back along the top and back down, ended up being a 40 minute run!! Quite pleased with that and have now set myself up for a fairly tough one on Wednesday. Need to punish myself as I have not been able to run for 3+ weeks, so will probably be aching after this week.
SS - Sounds like a good little outing!
Thanks for all the welcome backs, but these really are just experimental steps at present. Boring gym session afterwork, with more interesting interlude of -

Scobos, do you do lots of exercises balancing on one leg, eg with your eyes closed, going up onto your toes, and doing little one leg squats, and writing your name in the air with one arm, while balancing, and then all the last 3 with your eyes closed ? - preferably on soft sand in Cyprus; have a great time
40mins, good to see you back, even if it is only 1ml

TmR: Don't worry, these Help desk people are also 100 miles from their nearest computer.
SSing and NZC: Isn't it about time you made me jealous again by talking about the glorious runs along sandy bush tracks with the lorikeets and galahs chattering in the gum trees?
NZC - I'm sure you will do well in the marathon. Remember the body can function on ''memory''.
Blisters - lol, I have had a few bush track runs, but I can't say there were any lorikeets etc, I'll have to go to the south island for that.
What: 12 miles at a good effort along the waterfront at 5:30am
