Tracey, I booked to run that, but cancelled later as I didn't think I could manage another half so soon after the Bath one. Do you recommend it? The medal sounds grand, but I don't like the sound of the gravel.
Ceal - well, I suppose if the baby's not ill that is one good thing. I hope this is a virus you're already immune to.
Hello and welcome 330 or Bust (we may not be giving you your full name, 330 may have to do).
BIW - evidently Charlie is both beautiful and clever.
Exhausted - so where is that quote from? Not King Lear, unless I've completely forgotten it. Is it Comedy of Errors, as suggested by Red? I too was in church for Palm Sunday, the wind buffeting its way around the building.
Weather not much better today. Been swimming. Children are now on holiday, so us Over-60s had to make do with half the pool, the other half being reserved for the General Public i.e. parents and children, so we were playing dodgems again.
Joining in with the "well done Red!" shouts. Will we be getting a detailed report? I should think there must have been a number of DNFs in those conditions, to say nothing of the DNSs.
10 km at "easy" pace, defined for me by PT son as 9 minute-kilometring, or about 14:30mm. Extremely windy, with occasional bursts of rain. I wasn't looking forward to it at all but once out in it, it wasn't too bad. Avoided running under trees as far as possible, as there are lumps of twig blowing about all over the place.
Aws - beautiful white iris. I've always liked irises but not sure that I've ever seen a pure white one. Mostly they seem to be shades of blue and purple; or yellow, if they're flags. Very impressed by the woodpecker photos, too. I've never heard them from my garden, but often do in nearby patches of woodland.
TS - I thought you would like that word! Best of luck with the MRI. I understand the worst thing about it is keeping still for the required amount of time.
Not pleasant conditions at all, but not as bad (once I'd got going) as expected. Extremely windy, with occasional added showers. 10 km at "easy" pace which my PT has defined for me as approx 9mk. As well as having the strong wind to contend with, I had a few hills, so pace varied from 8:22 mk (13:29mm) to 10:22 mk (16:41mm). Much the same distance as Ceal, but took a lot longer!
Red - enjoy it, and don't get blown into the sea, - or anywhere else, for that matter.
No running today, but planning 90 minutes at the "easy" pace of 14mm tomorrow, so expect to get very wet.
WtnMel, I found things quietened down considerably in the last month before I retired, as I couldn't start any new item which I couldn't be sure of finishing before I left. You may find that you've no sooner retired than people start asking you to do things. And you may feel tempted to volunteer for things, - resist that temptation until you've counted the cost!
