Columba, I tried the standing on one leg cleaning my teeth business this morning, and apart from putting the other hand on the sink for balance occasionally, didn't find it too bad. I've also got an electric toothbrush, but don't think I cleaned my teeth quite as well as usual.
Matsmum, thanks. I will certainly a get a 68 year old pb tomorrow, as it will be my first parkrun at that age. Take care in those dangerous conditions, and don't go running unless you are sure it is absolutely safe to do so.
BIW, hope conditions don't deteriorate in the south.
A good session last night with the club. About an hour before meet up, the heavens opened and it belted down with rain. Luckily, it didn't last long, but it left the roads very wet. We did hilly circuits comprising 4 x 0.71 mile, with 2 minutes recoveries between circuits. Total mileage, 7.52.
Red, this weather doesn't help. The temperatures are around 7 or 8 degrees, yet there is a horrible chill in the air, which seems to get into the bones.
It was raining this morning, which wasn't forecast, so I got quite wet during my morning run. Just did a steady 5.25 miles.
Matsmum, I've never had a sports massage, and am not qualified to give advice. I have read, however, that by standing on a step, and letting the heels drop, and then raise can strengthen the Achilles. I usually do this exercise after club runs, and believe it does have benefits.
