Happy Birthday JJ - apologies for the wishes being a day late but they are no less sincere for that. Anyway, at our age celebrations should continue for at least a week! And yes, ofcourse the comeback is going to happen.......it has started already.
No running for me today as I shall be running both Saturday and Sunday. But I have a dance class - and a 3 year old granddaughter to look after.
Columba, you are doing so well. I shall be thinking of you on Sunday. What time do you start? Ask HS for the wings - I think he was the last one in possession of them.
David actually strained the achilles tendon in his right leg way back in April. It was getting better when he did exactly the same to his left leg. Dispiriting for him.
WtnMel - Get better soon. Perhaps a little less of the honey and lemon and rather more of the whisky.......
Nobby hat, HS. Just the latest style tra -la.
3 miles slow for me today. I ran a mile to Bluebell Dip and then ran up and down the Dip for a mile (5 repeats) and then the mile home.
Hey, Columba - I bought a book called the Art of Swimming which is the Steven Shaw method based on the Alexander Technique. For the first time I felt really at home in the water, able to roll from floating on my back to my front and back again, just breathing normally when I needed to. Still can't do front crawl though! (yet)
IW - Did you survive your birthday? And can you remember any of it after all that wine flowing!
Yes, Many Happy Returns, IW - have a great birthday. The last one as a working woman! Hooray! xx
JJ - So happy for you about the good news for Mrs JJ. David also had good news. Six monthly reviews instead of three monthly.
Just a quick note from me today. The reason I have been off-line for some time is that David has had achilles tendonitis in both legs. He can hardly walk and his balance is very precarious. Therefore I have been doing a lot of the work that he would normally do, both in the woods and in the garden. He can drive the tractor, but that is about it. I am quite happy doing it, but running has had to take a back seat.
I have been doing 3 and 4 miles, but last week I did not get out at all. Today I did 4.4 miles and felt like a right heffalump. But at least it didn't finish me off, so there is still hope!
Congratulations all you speedy, dedicated runners - HS, Red, Columba, WtnMel, Everybody...I hope to be reporting some good runs too before long.
IW - How many candles do you have to blow out tonight???
