We were told by the duty Dr on 111 that TW would be the best place to go. I guess if we had gone to EG, they would, perhaps, have sent Stewart in an ambulance somewhere! Apparently EG would not have had anyone on duty qualified to see to an eye on this particular weekend, it cost us ??80 in taxi rides.
I did run today, yes run with no walking for 3.54 miles, 30.04 mins, av pace 8.29 mm, av HR 136. Not as good as it looks because more downhill than uphill, but there was some uphill!
9.03 mm, av HR 124
8.56 mm, av HR 134
7.20 mm, av HR 144
.54 mile, 9.29 mm, av HR 153
The stats are incorrect for the last 1.54 miles. I didn't run as fast as 7.20 mm, nor did I run as slow as 9.29 mm. So an average of the two numbers would probably look more like 8.24 min milling. There must have been a signal not picked up somewhere.
Total mileage for the session 5.81 miles.
I took a couple of mins break then ran/ walked home. 2.27 miles, 25.94 mins. av pace 11.03 mm, av HR 131
We have had a big of a traumatic weekend. Stewart was in N. Ireland Thursday and Friday, during this time he developed a big issue with one of his eyes, as in suffering from an irritation from his contact lens of the offending eye. Not sure how he managed to drive home from the airport on Friday evening. After consulting with a Dr on 111 he advised a visit to A & E at Tunbdridge Wells. Neither of us could drive so we had two rather expensive taxi rides there and back. It is a 45 min journey. The outcome was a diagnosis of bacteria causing an ulcer on the cornea of his right eye. Drops prescribed with another visit recommended the following day. Luckily, my son, bless him, came over and took us to and from the hospital this time! Good news the antibiotic drops are working. Tomorrow we have to go to Maidstone Eye Clinic. We are hoping Stewart will be able to drive, 'cause it is quite a long way away from us! But of course the price of one's eyes is of no consequence,
