Hi all, *waves* - sorry I've been absent for a while. Sounds like you've all been busy. Sorry for your sad news VT - I work at a vets so I know just how much pets can mean to people. Big hugs to you.
BeDe - hope you enjoyed your run back! It must feel strange after all this time. Well done on your patience and I hope the recovery continues to go well.
I've been a bit rubbish (as per my name!) recently. Was finding it hard to keep HR under control with my low iron then had a holiday which definitely didn't help! Trying to get back to it now but still much slower than I was. I'm not at all sure about my GSR goal of sub 2h now but I'll see how things go over the next couple of weeks then decide if I'm going to try or not.
Sounds like some good training being done by everyone in spite of the heat. I know I shouldn't, but I'm really looking forward to the winter - bring on dark mornings and a cool breeze! So much easier to keep HR down and I love running with my headtorch on - makes me feel hardcore
