Like campervans / motorhomes; downside is having to run another vehicle... tax, MOT insurance etc, upside is the freedom and convenience - bit of a downer when you have to take your entire camp with you if you want to eat out at a pub or whatever, small price to pay. Sadly, as you say Seren, they are far from cheap - good luck with that
Good to hear you had a great holiday Kev, that sounds like the kind of adventure that will stay with your kids for life
No worries Jones, life has a habit of trundling on, with stuff popping up all the time! Good to know you are running well - even if that does mean you ignoring our Nutty!
Boff Jnr and I are planning on running the Cross Hands Park Run this Saturday if you are around Nutty - well that is the plan, but it is two days away yet and a lot can happen in two days! We started pack training last week, and running in our new fell shoes - so it is planned to be the same again this week; bit more weight in the packs, but running at constant pace at the back aiming to do 6 min Km. Easy pace for running so allows for acclimatisation to running with a pack - has the added advantage to Park Run of acting as a slow pacer... last week we ran with a 30min target sign on a stick stuck in the pack! Rubbish pacing though as we came in at 29:30 - despite keeping a close eye on garmin and our pace... thoughts abound that the course is a bit short - but then we all know how inaccurate GPS can be on short bendy courses?
Should have turned out to be a better week than forecast for you Seren?
Quiet on here of late - everyone rushing to the shops to buy arm bands? Had a busy week with my sister and nephews on the farm; great opportunity to catch up on some long overdue gardening and enjoy the odd G&T admiring newly re-found garden!
No exercise, you must be going bonkers Nutty! Difficult to think of exercise you can sensibly do without involving your legs... did think of table tennis, but you could do with standing for that - unless the table was really low to the ground...
Obviously lots of sport achievable without use of legs; wheelchair basketball etc, but for the short term convalescence it is a tadge more tricky? Hope you recover in speedy fashion.
