I had to google Beauceron dog as well. Ouch. The owner really should have better control over them, and at the very least she should be replacing your tops.
Bad luck with the ice Shades, we had a little bit of snow yesterday but much milder today but windy.
23:02 (unofficial) parkrun today, quite pleased with that. Didn't want it enough to hold the pace and eased off, bit nervous of calf etc, but all felt fine. Did 2 miles before and a mile after so 101 for the month
sk - Thanks for the info re the Rides v Guides. I know I shouldn't worry about the 100 mile/month thing but it bugs me that i'm so close for Jan ,but 11/12 is better than 6/12 if I damage it further so trying to think about the big picture.
Iain - Presume you can't use a bike at work ? ,sounds as if it could have got much more serious & you can now start on making it right again. Good luck.
Good news on the calf Jugula , go easy. I've had trouble in the past with my right calf where it tricked me into thinking it was ok until I ran on it. It's why i'm vary wary of my left one this time around.
I prefer Calfs but it still doesn't look quite right to me . Must be a January thing.
