Ceal - I don't know what a jet wash is, maybe it is a water blaster It is a machine that you plug your hose into and has a lead to plug into the power and a long handle that you point at anything, like concrete, fence palings, decks etc Anything that you want to take the dirt or moss off.
Columba - no, my youngest grandchild is turning 6 in November, so she isn't starting early, but just thought it would be good for her with summer coming on.
WD 60 - Your walk sounded lovely.
No run or walk from me yesterday, went to look at stoves and fridges, but then thought I probably should look at a new kitchen first as mine has seen much better days.
Columba - lovely to have your brother to stay. Guess you are feeling it, if you are not used to drinking.
Mick - happy belated birthday.
JJ - well the weight doesn't seem to be slowing you down - congrats on the current PB!
Diana - hope your bones heal well.
I had a hard run yesterday - about 14km, my Garmin ran out of battery so wasn't able to see how I did. I only know I ran up one hell of a hill at the end of the run. I had forgotten about this hill on this circuit that we were doing, I thought we turned off somewhere on the route and ended up running along a flat track. I was offered an alternative of running up lots of stairs on an off-road track, but decided against that, and put my head down and sang Katy Perry's "Roar" in my head as I tackled the hill. I was just hoping that I wasn't going to pay for it last night. Glad to report, not too bad.
Awful weather here today, think it might be another day off.
Wow - that is great Columba - did you see Chris Hobbs in the race too? It will be good to see the final results to see where you got in your age-group.
I think I'm going to the gym today. We got a pass that will see us to the end of the month and then I will decide from there. I like the stretching exercises, whereas my daughter likes the treadmill, machines, weights etc. I might try yoga, but then again, the best part is going to the gym with my daughter and having fun together.
Welsh Poppy - that is a great run for a training run!
JJ - that is a big improvement - well done.
Ceal and Torque Steer - hope your niggles stay just that - niggles.
I still feel cr*p and my eyes are giving me bother as well, probably because it is spring here and maybe it is just an allergic reaction, or maybe it is an age-thing. Oh dear, as long as we can wake up, and put one foot in front of the other - must be a good thing;-)
Congratulations Columba - well deserved, and nice work by your son!
Ceal - you look like you are making a very solid come-back. Some decent runs there, plus cooking for 60 odd people!
Torque Steer - more good running from you too, hope that pain doesn't last long.
Mick - my daughter and I hit the gym last week, we enjoyed it, though did get a bit sore. First day we did a body balance session, which is a bit like yoga, which I did enjoy because it stretched all the bits that I need stretching, then we went and tried out the tread mill, that other strange walker thing that you use your arms for, and 5km on the cycle.
My daughter used to go to the gym, so on another day, she showed me how to use all the machines, and I found that my hamstrings are so weak!
Didn't do much running during the week, but this weekend ran 9km on the flat and walked for 2hrs on the hilly, muddy Hilary trail.
