For those that do like fruit in their flapjack, this has become a staple with my running group, not exactly healthy or indeed cheap but very delicious and quite squidgy

Hello all just popping in for the first time in ages - been oldie-sitting then working so this will be my first proper weekend at home for 5 weeks. Have kept up with what everyone's been doing, intermittently . Good luck to all who are racing or long-running at the weekend.
I have an entry for Wolves half but may bin it in favour of a LDWA event on Saturday which I think I would enjoy more as the scenery would be better and there is cake - would 22 miles of hilly run-walk would an adequate substitute for 13 miles on the flat do you think?
VR - only you can decide but I know I regret doing one too many maras to fulfil a self-imposed obligation when I was a little bit injured and then I ended up really badly injured...
Sorry to her of son's worries BBS, hope he's back to his confident self soon, not a parent myself, full of admiration for those who are!
Seem to be assuming reverse-role parenting for my two oldies...hope Mum will come home next week to intermediate care, trying to get everything sorted at their home, big thing will be getting them to accept carers coming in...think first few days will be tricky as they adjust ,poor things. Still, Mum appears to be very lucky to making a slow but steady recovery - looking around the orthopaedic ward it is all to evident that many old ladies with hip fracture don't go back home to semi-independent life (or don't go home full stop).
Still managing to get some running in, keeping it slow and enjoyable Have a good weekend all
Glad Millie is OK, pets can be such a worry! I am missing our 18-year-old moggy while I'm away but reports say he is quite happy with the cleaning lady and intermittent presence of Mr Sluggie. Hope to pop back and see him this week.
Well done to you and your son Elspeth, fab times especially in the wind
Sorry about the bunny Mrs M, your reaction shows you really want one again!
Still stranded in sunny Telford, no news on Mum coming out of hozzie; she is waiting for a rehab bed but that may never become available, in which case she will be discharged to transitional care at home...I need to make some contingency plans for my Dad as I will really have to get back to work by the end of the month. Have to grit teeth in conversations with Mum as although she has all her marbles and insists on being kept in the loop she's liable to get fixated on stuff like whether I've returned her library books, instead of bigger stuff like whether I am going get a stair lift installed or arrange carers!
14 miles (ish) done this morning so at least marathon plans are progressing
