I like streaks...but am very sensible these days and would miss a day if absolutely necessary. Wasn't so sensible in the past and ran for over 11 years with all sorts of problems like a broken bone in a foot, broken ribs etc. I do factor in a lot of easy days now: the "active rest/recovery" does seem to help more than not running. I would say that though!
OL: Showaddywaddy...my home town band. It could have all been quite different: Romeo Challenger, one of the drummers, was a very good footballer and played for Leicester City Reserves at the same time as Peter Shilton. He was a speedy winger but got hacked down and broke a leg so badly he never played again. His son Ben was a high jumper and got a medal in the Commonwealths a few years back. Today's bit of trivia!
Re the Stockport 10 course it looks as if it goes along the bridle path from Chadkirk to Bredbury Hall. Often run that and it is often very wet!
What: 20 minutes done and dusted
Why: stretch the legs out. An early run so I can now have 24 hours off without having a rest day!
Indeed, OH, re CDs. Friend bought a new car the other day. No CD player! What do you get for £40k+ these days? "Everything's on USB these days". I'll stick to my radio, thanks. And my 78s. Daughter has acquired a music centre (not sure why!) but has no idea what an LP, single or 78 is, and can only vaguely recall what a cassette is. Have you checked out the Stockport 10 course?
