I think I have got your drift about running, but not absolutely sure! I am just running for enjoyment and fitness and if anything else turns up along the way then it does, but anything else is not my priority. You haven't run properly for a number of years and therefore at our age it is going to take you a good while to get properly fit again. I can really recommend run/walk but done as a properly structured plan. Not random. It doesn't mean that one is never able to run continually again, it just means that one can recover more safely quicker than continual running. It also means that one just isn't dragging ones feet along for the distance ran.
You didn't give your thoughts on the dire Rugby result on Saturday!!!
I well remember you taking part in the Huntington Chase race last year and getting a bit lost! The course sounds rather tough but very pretty and interesting. I see you kept visiting us in England, but not for long! I was amused at the prize for the first horse and ruder.
Beautiful day today, possible the last one of autumn if the weather forecast is to go by! Some of my trail has been re-surfaced and is divine to run on. But there is still a lot of it to finish as yet. It is open at the weekends so I took the opportunity to run on the new packed very fine gravel surface. I am sure that when we get heavy rain that the surface will break up again.
I ran/walked 7.3 miles, av pace 10.56 mm, av HR 124.
Yesterday we spent the day trying to clear our garage which is full of Stewart's hoarded goodies, or in my eyes non goodies we have a hippo bag to fill and indeed we shall fill it, I am sure.
The reason for the clearing is that we are having a Garden Office built with a shed at the back in its place. The work should start a week tomorrow but I guess that will depend on the weather conditions.
I am really sorry to hear about your wife's recent diagnosis. My Mum had osteperosis too and she most certainly shrank over the years! I live in East Grinstead so not so far away from your territory.
