Really cold and windy today. "Trouble is, we can't even blame anyone!" as someone commented to me.
Red - you'd think, with new hips and new knees being available for people, new hooves might be available for horses. But probably they're much too complicated on the inside (pedal bones? coffin bones?)
I don't run with an ipad, either. Largely because I haven't got one.
TS - thank you for the mountain running pix. I can't think progress would be very fast, even apart from the gradients, as the views would be so beguiling.
NRD. Have been walking around Ludlow in blustery winds while my car was being serviced. Took scarf and gloves with me, and needed them, though had to hang onto my scarf ends as it kept threatening to blow away.
Red - oh dear, oh dear, my thoughts are with you - and hubby - and Esther (what does a grazing muzzle do, BTW?)
Matsmum - you too, - what lesson do you think should be learned from it? "Don't walk backwards" or "put the stone bunny somewhere inaccessible and replace with a foam-rubber one"?
OO - hope that cold goes soon. Late spring seems to be a bad time for colds.
TE - yes thank you, Tuesday's X-C was much pleasanter than the previous week's, - much much pleasanter - sunshine, warm but not too warm, bluebells, wood anemones and lots of other spring wild flowers.
Yesterday evening I took two (home-made) cakes to the leisure centre to contribute to festivities following the 2nd of 3 5k races organised by the running club. I didn't race (still feeling the effects of 10 hilly miles on Sunday plus Tuesday's x-c). Might do the third one in a few weeks' time.
JJ - LOL at the "oldest teenager in the business". A friend of mine once described me as "the oldest hippie in town". Bit unfair, just because I was wearing something vaguely ethnic.
