Matsmum, hope the bursitis isn't too painful, although it does sound bad, and doesn't hinder your running too much.
Columba, yes it was terrible the way they treated my Daughter, and also at WtnMels Club. Clubs do indeed have a responsibility for ensuring the safety etc of all their runners. My club even caters for the "Lone Wolfs," and endeavours to help them integrate and become one of the team. We also encourage running at weekends and I am active in this.
Exhausted, I entirely understand your preference to run and train alone, as many people aren't club people. I enjoy long runs on my own, but seem to have voluntarily undertaken the role of doing long runs with those that have entered marathons.
Exhausted, the club probably miss me in that I always run to and from training with the new or slower runners, to ensure that nobody gets left behind. I like to encourage runners and try to set an example. I may have mentioned this before, but several years ago, my daughter went to a running club and they all set off leaving her way behind. She never went back, and I don't want to lose any runners from our club in this way. Well done with your second sprint, you must be a speedy lady.
Columba, good news that your eye is getter better. Has your cold cleared up now? I'm on Fetch, but mainly use it for recording training and race details.
Bright and sunny this morning, and today is a rest day.
Columba, glad to hear that you are re-joining "the land of the living."
JJ, don't overdo the manual work whilst you have a cold. Hope it doesn't linger.
Red, I appreciate the hokey kokey rendition whilst you were delivering leaflets. It could catch on when the politicians come knocking on our doors, begging for our votes. I am taking it steady, and ran 6 miles yesterday at an easy pace. I had no problems until I finished, when I had a brief coughing spell. I had a cough free night, so hopefully am now well on the mend.
I won't be going to club tonight, as it is another 5k time trial, and would be stupid for me to partake. I will be going for another easy run later this morning.
Red, you seem to be getting on well with your new Hokas. I wonder why they are named that. Perhaps for doing the Hokey Kokey
WtnMel, thanks for the birthday wishes, I had a great time at the Xmas/birthday party. That's probably where I picked up the cold bug though. Hope Mrs Wm's cold soon gets better, and that you don't catch it.
I'm feeling much better this morning, except for a stuffy nose, that no amount of blowing seems to clear for more than a short while. I'm contemplating a short run this morning when I return from the shops.
