Ceal - the Carole King concert should be good. Think my whole body has gone to pot, not just the leg muscles!
Torque Steer - that was a good result for England beating the Aussies 3 nil.
Hope you didn't use the f word when you slid on the gravel path - was going to put a smiley in there, but then thought you probably would be a bit sore after that! So hope you are o'kay.
Only ran for about 20 minutes today, that was enough. Tomorrow I am going to an activate exercise class - I've been to 3 classes so far on a Thursday - supposed to activate some of your muscles - you use a ball for some of the exercises, and a stretchy rope thing for some of the others - it's a bit like jazzercise or something like that. You know - they go one way and I go the other - not really my thing.
Thanks Welshpoppy - but my excitement about running again has taken another turn, I haven't run since Saturday - pain in my other knee - will try another little run today.
The Welsh have been here too, playing the All Blacks.
Ceal - you are one talented family! Our littlest grand daughter has taken to the water too and I am so happy for her.
Columba - looks like we are two of a kind, and I think Welshpoppy has been having trouble with her knees too. People always used to ask me about my knees and I'd look at them as if they were crazy - I never had anything wrong with my legs or knees!
Felt sorry for England against Iceland - you'll be back!
john - Leo did do you proud - he hams it up a bit, but his voice is still great and the two of them together - just took me back to younger times!
Torque Steer - you don't like Adele? She has a great voice - haven't heard her saying anything awful, she just seems very down to earth, maybe she didn't like the mud!
My surgery was keyhole and done by a woman who I used to run against years ago - she is a great age-group triathlete now, she said I will have to run smarter now - oh dear! She didn't see any marathons in the near future!
Hi everyone - hope you guys can all still love each other. Must be tough with the country split and Scotland wanting to stay with the EU.
Anyway - I've got something to report too! I ran 12.41 km this morning!! A red letter day. I haven't been able to run for so long. I have only been able to run 3 or 4 kms lately so I am very happy - will take it very easy for a couple of days.
I have done quite a bit of walking and have just started an exercise class once a week, so maybe that is helping.
Empty - sounds like you have been having fun - one of my friends did the dopey challenge. Good luck with the training for New York - it is a great marathon - the best I have done!
Mick - good to see you still hard at it!
Torque Steer - looks like you have some beautiful places to run in.
Well done on the half Columba - that is quite a bit of time you took off your best.
I have to wait for about 4 weeks before anything starts to happen re my knee as the injury which started as a hamstring pull was on ACC - which is free, but if they decide it is "wear and tear" it will not be covered and then I will have to use my medical insurance, but they have to go down the ACC road first.
Torque Steer -The surgery will be on the meniscus tear - hope you feel better soon.
Ceal you fit in a lot in your day!
Back home from our trip away, it was very hot, but grand daughter loved it - she was in the water most of the time.
The boys are off doing a very hilly off-road half marathon today- hope they enjoy it.
