Oh dear, John, I hope you can replace the book without too much trouble and expense.
3.1 miles before breakfast this morning; 4mins run, 1min walk. A lot slower than John's parkrun; and now my knee is reproaching me, but just remembered I haven't done any post-run stretching, so I will do so and maybe the knee will be happier.
TE - no, not a bit like Yorkshire pudding. It's a very solid cake; I can't remember the exact recipe, but I know mine had oatmeal and black treacle in. Or molasses instead of the black treacle; but that was a bit too much of a good thing.
Waiting to hear from Red...
DBI - hope Nemo is bathed and you've all survived.

Chilly start to the day (especially as my boiler is refusing to run the central heating - though it's still heating the water); however, I had planned a before-breakfast run, and once I got out in it I found the sun was struggling through the mist, so I went as far as the lake which looks very pretty in those conditions. I met a contingent from the running club; they don't "officially" run at that time, so I think it was probably the more advanced people from the walk to run group, plus the people training them.
4 miles, at 9 mins run 1 min walk.
Glad you're still talking to yourself, John. Might have been a bit lonely otherwise.
TE - Huntington is not "my" village, it's about 15 miles away! One is invited to wear fancy dress for the race, but not many people do. I think the two men-in-drag were also in drag in a previous year, along with one in a more conventional skirt-and-blouse-and-hat. 2nd MV 60 when you're actually a MV70 is quite something! I would have hated all that mud and water, but it's whatever turns you on....
Brilliant achievement, Red; and good thing you took the walking poles. Don't they get in the way when you're running? Or are they telescopic?
I was out with the running club this evening, first time for months. I didn't do the full distance, but didn't take any walk breaks either. Knee doesn't seem to have suffered. Unfortunately Running Club evening is Tuesday, same as Vibe Cycle evening, so I have to make the choice.
