Quick resume: daughter home from Philippines after 6 months which is brilliant. We didn't run York 10k as I had to go and care for my sick mum. I managed two lovely runs in Dorset and was glad to be with my parents. My daughter and I have done a couple of park runs since she has come home which has been good. No races planned for the future, need to think about that when I return from France, off on my hols next week and will definitely take my running gear
Hi everyone! Hope everyone is well. I am trying to do different exercise to lesson strain on my Achilles. I have been swimming but after a few lengths on my last swim I hurt the side of my other foot! So had to cut my swim short. The last couple of weeks I have been to circuit training. I stupidly did skipping last night. The instructor said I shouldn't have done it! I fortunately seem to have escaped additional problems. I think I am going to stick with my running and Zumba On Sunday my younger daughter and I ran a hilly off road race for life. It was extremely moving with all the survival stories we heard before the race. A very different atmosphere than other races. My next race is York 10k that I will be running with my elder daughter who returns from the Philippines next week after 6 months volunteering
Can anyone recommend a spring marathon up north other than Windermere? I like the smaller ones with interesting scenery. I also wouldn't mind a bit of off road. This is presuming I don't get in to London....thank you.
Just popping in to say hi! Yeh! Congratulations Big G on your marathon, recover well
Busy couple of weeks for me as I have just had a significant birthday! I was born when England won the football world cup. I have been out with work colleagues, had a small party and just returned from a lovely weekend in London with my 3 sisters. I have a spa trip planned when my daughter returns from the Philippines, meal out and possibly a city break in the Autumn....I actually feel better than 10 years ago, the year I started running! My goals are to run another marathon, look into off road trail running and maybe even an ultra......
Hope everyone is ok. Will try to read back on the thread when I have a mo
Thank you Big G and Shades! Managed at last! Here is the view from just outside the cottage at Calgary Bay. It was great to run along the beach and out along the headland at the back of the photo. Also to paddle straight after my runs!
