I am so pleased your leg is improving Nutty - such a pain having to hold back due to injury.
Sweetie has managed two short treadmill runs now without issue, so all good She is a bit aching now due to turning over half the sheep flock and trimming hooves / worming etc! This is the time of year we get to play matchmaker and determine which girls go to which boy - we have two rams in the running all eager to go!
The weather is dreadful at times - seems to have been particularly bad on the drives home for some reason? Standing water on the M4 is never nice - at least there are few vehicles on the road making spray at that time in the morning.
I am not in your insomnia league Nutty, but I used to find it hard to get to sleep - that is until I started working 10.5 hr night shifts; these days I am asleep within a few minutes
It is true; The Sun has gone off on it's hols... seems we are in for some rain now for the winter! Seems to have been well chucking it down around half five each morning just as I am walking back to the car!
Hope the leg is still holding up Nutty. Sweetie's foot seems to have stagnated over the last couple of weeks -still sore but neither getting better or worse, so she tried a short treadmill run and it felt much better - go figure!
If these mornings keep up as they have been Seren, might be good for a swim, but having a running rest day might be a good option?
What level of madness would see you put yourself in a room full of toddlers Seren! Did you do this to yourself voluntarily or were you locked in with them as a punishment
Swiss Valley Reservoir sounds scenic Kev; a quick jump over to Switzerland? Sweetie opted not to run the Swansea 10k to rest the foot - good move as the foot is recovering far quicker for not being stressed further. She is going slightly potty with the enforced break from running though!
Keep taking it easy Nutty sounds a good plan; far better to be doing a few helpful miles as opposed to doing too many damaging miles. I am not doing so bad; working nights is quite a routine change for me - fitting other things in is a little complicated. I haven't run since I started the job - seems to be too little time available? I am certain there is time, I just need to organise myself better. Boff Jnr and myself have been able to get out for training on the Black Mountains the past few Saturdays, so far from being a hard life
