Torque Steer - I don't have a sprint finish, that is why I've always done the "catch me if you can" type of running. I very rarely go past anyone. These days everyone is in front of me including people running with prams!
JJ - think the dogs help us get out there!
I didn't run on Monday, but took Mae for 5km yesterday, though she hates the rain.
Tracey - my grand mother's eldest brother was born in Doverscourt in 1858, I have that place in Suffolk - is that right? My grandmother was born in 1876 in Elmstead Essex. I did go to Elmstead to have a look. A tiny little place. I have always wondered what would have made her make the journey to NZ. Guess I will never know.
Torque Steer - thanks for the kind words, I know that I am really unfit but just can't get on top of it. My left leg is still giving me grief, though not while running, just the rest of the time!
I don't know what I will do with myself now the athletic champs are over.
NZ didn't get a bean! We had our only hopes pinned on Nick Willis, but he would have had to be a bit closer to throw himself over the line like the third place finisher did.
It if a miserable wet day here today, so I'm not sure what I will do today, maybe go for a walk. I did run 14km yesterday.
Columba - your fall sounded very nasty! Be careful you don't get an infection in your knee!
Love the comment - "you look younger every time you go around"!
Welsh Poppy/Ceal, I like to wear a car to keep out rain and to protect from the sun, but do not like to race in a hat. I don't sweat very much, so you girls are lucky that your cooling systems work well. I just go red!
I had a good 6km run with my friend who had just returned from the World masters games in Lyon. She picked up the silver in the W70 marathon 4.48 so not too shabby! What I was most impressed with was that she had also run the 8km xcountry, and the 5km and 10k on the track.
If it had been me, it would have been enough to have competed in one event!
I ran 9km with Mae yesterday, and I'm having a rest day today.
