BIW - How do you get a dog to run safely beside a bike? We would like to go on bike rides but haven't done so because it means leaving Denz-boy at home.
13 miles, 2hrs33mins, in beautiful sunshine. Then walked half a mile home.
I wonder how TE has got on. I bet he does brilliantly. I thought about him at exactly 10.30, so I shall take some of the credit!
Exhausted, I do feel for you having that sore knee so close to VLM. But you are one fit lady, and any time off is unlikely to detract from your performance. Just take JJ's advice and work at getting better.
Diana - Wow, what an amazing holiday. I have never been to India. Isn't Tamil Nadu where that catastrophic tsunami occurred some years back? Did you swim in the Indian Ocean? I can't say I would fancy a 12 hour train journey. What is a homestay? Did you learn Tamil before you went!!!
BIW - Well done, Charlie ( or rather well done you for training him so well!) It makes me laugh when they are saying "silly old fool" in dog language under their breath! My last dog, Chase, was a past master at it, whenever she had to obey a command that she felt unreasonable.
Exhausted - you made me laugh with your comment about the 2 men and concerts.
JJ - Where are you? I hope Mrs JJ is on the mend and that you are feeling more energised.
TE - All set for tomorrow? We will think of you at 10.30.
No running for me today, (but 13 miles tomorrow.) I went to my granddaughter's 3rd birthday party instead!
Hello Diana, nice to have you back. Tell us about your exotic holiday - it looks amazing. Is it somewhere you have been before?
No running for me today, but I went swimming. 300mtrs done this time (18 lengths). It will be 20 next time. How did you get on,Columba? I found the 4 strokes a bit too hard because I ran out of breath and then didn't position my head properly to breathe, taking in water as well as air. But I was a lot less panicky.
Yes, who does need Crufts. Outmoded and not necessary. Will you have one of the pups, BIW? Bet you won't be able to resist.
TE - glad you are being measured about Sunday. It is going to be lovely weather I have heard, so I bet you will do really well.
I did 6 miles this morning. A warm up mile, then 4 completed in 39:14, then a cool down mile. Of the 4 two had the wind behind me - and when I turned round to retrace my steps it was quite a battle. I felt a bit sick before I started. And decidedly sick when I finished
