I avoid the "Senior Moments" thread on Fetch, - bit too near the bone!
WtnMel, what is your race number? I have 2390. It is a white number but I shall certainly not be running with the white group. I have to go to the information tent and be re-assigned to the orange (slowest) group. Hope to see you.
Good to "see" you, TS! I echo others' comments on the MRI.
Ceal, I can't believe the speeds you get up!
Half-hour's swimming yesterday, half-hour's gentle running today. The weather, however, was not gentle.
Some people (not me!) really do seem to rejoice in mud. Some of the people on the Fetcheveryone website, for example. A group of them were doing a race called "Hell up North" last year, it was near Chester which is fairly accessible to me, and I went to watch. At the "Bog of Doom" they were literally breast deep in stinking muddy water - indeed, many of them had to swim bits of it - yet all (well, most) raring to do it again. To add to the fun, they were all dressed as Elvis.
I do find that on X-C runs with the running club, after about 50 minutes if we happen to be going through a muddy patch or splashing through a stream, I have reached the "past caring" stage; but that's different from seeking it out.
