Chris - totally agree with JJ - glad you saved yourself for New Plymouth
18 miles is not to be sniffed at - a great long run - now you just have to shake that cold!
Ceal - exciting stuff being asked to be part of an indoor athletics meet. I haven't run indoors - should be fun!
JJ - glad you are feeling better and good to get some nice fast young blood into th club.
Columba - best bits about summer - clothes dry easily on the line, no mud on the bush tracks umm, able to leave the windows open at night and have the sea breeze blow through from one side to the other.
We are lucky our winters are not that cold, and it is pleasant to run in the rain. We don't get snow in Auckland, and we can breathe easier and don't get too hot when we run.
Having a rest day today after our long walk yesterday. The plumber came this morning and fixed so many things that haven't been working properly for a long time - very happy.
Went to the chiro this morning too, so hope that sorts me out a bit too.
Think the Seagull is slightly ahead of you after that John
5km walk to the cafe for me, husband and dog yesterday, then did some weeding.
Wednesday I attempted my 9km run with my friend. Should have just run 5km, because after about that distance got into a coughing fit and told my friend to go on. Got going again, with the enticement of the tap at the end of the pipeline - where I could wet my head and have a few mouthfuls.
Still not 100% will try a little run today. Foot is still a little unhappy too.
Chris - another hot day here today! We are hoping for a bit of rain. Just hope for your sake it doesn't come when you arrive.
Chris - I have Runners' world messaged you about your Cornwall Parkrun. Temp forecast for 14th February in Auckland - 21 degrees - 16 degress low - mostly sunny.
It will be good to see you.
I ran/walked about 4 km with son last night when it got cooler. Had been busy most of the day, so not really feeling like running this morning, but I meet up with friends on a Wednesday - so I'd better get myself organized!
