Hi everyone - hope you guys can all still love each other. Must be tough with the country split and Scotland wanting to stay with the EU.
Anyway - I've got something to report too! I ran 12.41 km this morning!! A red letter day. I haven't been able to run for so long. I have only been able to run 3 or 4 kms lately so I am very happy - will take it very easy for a couple of days.
I have done quite a bit of walking and have just started an exercise class once a week, so maybe that is helping.
Empty - sounds like you have been having fun - one of my friends did the dopey challenge. Good luck with the training for New York - it is a great marathon - the best I have done!
Mick - good to see you still hard at it!
Torque Steer - looks like you have some beautiful places to run in.
Well done on the half Columba - that is quite a bit of time you took off your best.
I have to wait for about 4 weeks before anything starts to happen re my knee as the injury which started as a hamstring pull was on ACC - which is free, but if they decide it is "wear and tear" it will not be covered and then I will have to use my medical insurance, but they have to go down the ACC road first.
Torque Steer -The surgery will be on the meniscus tear - hope you feel better soon.
Ceal you fit in a lot in your day!
Back home from our trip away, it was very hot, but grand daughter loved it - she was in the water most of the time.
The boys are off doing a very hilly off-road half marathon today- hope they enjoy it.
Hi guys - I'm up in the middle of the night as I can't sleep, had set my alarm for 3.30 am anyway as I am going to the Gold Coast, Australia this morning for a few days holiday with my 6 year old grand daughter and my daughter. Should be fun - first time on a plane for my gdaughter, so hope she was able to sleep.
I went to get the results from my MRI scan from the surgeon yesterday, and it seems I now have a meniscus tear in the same leg that I had the burst baker cyst and the honeycomb fracture of the tibia!
I ran for so many years without any injuries, but these last months have been a pain in the leg
It will be at least a month before I get any surgery done, then my surgeon said I will have to exercise smarter!
When I first saw her she said she didn't see me doing any more half marathons or marathons, but I guess we will wait and see. I certainly will be doing everything she asks of me.
Ceal - loved your report and now you have another event to train for. Exciting stuff!
Tracey - congrats on the half - well done!
Columba - you seem to be doing quite a bit of gadding about!
Welsh Poppy - 11 mile run sounds great to me!
Torque Steer - I'd be very happy with those stats!
Mick - still doing some great work in the gym!
Graham - 7.10 minute miles - you are doing it mate!
W60 - yes be happy you can still run.
Forgot to say I am still doing my swimming lessons, and it seems you can't teach an old dog new tricks
