Smiry paints a picture, birkmyre - Ryder Cup approaching: are you going to be there?
Delighted that Nessie & her forests are becoming reacquainted - as all have said: steady does it.
Seafront has a way of lifting any runner, Dank-art. And N.B., JT, they only shout because you've made an impression! A big lift, washwood - tell us how you get on in the event itself.
DunkyD - that gets me back for my pun! tbh, it's not the worst tip up I've had cosmetically but the aches & stiffness seem to be lasting longer. So, of course, the Streak goes on with a 5k double last Thur. and a cracking 5.2 miles on the beach y'day.
carterusm - Terrific progress on the beverage front. I've never really set a Streaky target: I suppose getting out and adding another day are incentive enough!
Well, DunkyD, this morning's 5.2 miler round Rimrose Valley was paused after 10 minutes as I became unexpectedly closely acquainted with an innocent-looking trail..... Stopped my watch as I crashed down; couldn't even muster a choice expletive. Right elbow, hip & knee took the brunt but completed run, as I had to get to work!
Aches & pains? Cuts & bruises? Me? Will be out for a couple of miles tomorrow morning! Streak = 1325 days; mileage for year: just shy of 1600. Not too bad.
SB, a lucky escape: no chance of getting 'board' on your runs! Thank you, carterusm - all the kind comments have been much appreciated. Always wise to move across distances if you're unsure.
Great description of your coastal session, Lilytoo - I try to take best advantage of prevailing winds but they have to be faced!
SB - you've set up sound measures for dealing with a little-known illness and the quality of your running shows it can be mastered.
Coming together well, DunkyD - best wishes from me ...and a lively 10.1 miler, JT - truly 'on manoeuvres'. Sub-2 is yours next race, Dankart.
For me, 14.1 miles, mainly trail, with some private roads and an unintended tour of farm fields. U-turn back to Hightown, along the Alt estuary & Hightown coast before a stretch down the beach. Met a woman running the Polar Circle Marathon series next month!
