Forgot to say bon voyage to Lorenzo - I think you said you were jetting off today. All the best to you, Poacher, and Bike It for Sunday. Hope all the injuries/illnesses don't stop you all from having a very memorable and successful race. Leslie - have you started carb-loading yet?
Fishy- good progress there. Bike It - sorry to hear about the flu - hope your recovery picks up. Jools - sub 40 with man flu is still very respectable. MsE - or with an injury! Speedy - good to hear from you. Keep plugging away and you'll be back on form soon. SJ - more great training. Badbark - fantastic stuff - congratulations again. GM - No, I haven't bought a GPS watch yet. I'm very indecisive! Lorenzo - cotton wool! Poacher - really hoping it all works out for you. 10 slow miles this morning.
Lorenzo - that's a busy week to fit in before you jet off!!! Hope you get a chance to rest too. Leslie - not long to go for you either. Enjoy the last week of the taper. OO - great parkrun. MsE - hope you can find the right balance to recover from injury. Enjoy the Race for Life with MsEtte1. Birch - nice way to spend Bank Holiday weekend. Poacher - you are definitely a survivor. GM - well done on the 40 mile week. Your patience will pay off. JF2 - hope you find a new target soon. I'm currently trying to avoid tarmac and do more off-road! Hence today, I headed up the river and tried to find one of two entrances on my side of the woods. I haven't been that far along the river since I was a nipper and I'm sure there was clear access all the way along. So quite a bit of back tracking and nipping out onto other paths and finding another way round. Eventually I did make it into the woods; the entrance seemed to be deliberately hidden! After a couple of laps I thought it was time to head home and tried the other side of the river but without any joy. Still at least next time I can head straight there without wasting time going round the houses. So 75 mins with a few strides on the way home - no idea how far it was though.
