I don't get to the thread through General Running either. The thing is, other people won't join if it's not visible.
Hey Red - that must have been some evening if FOUR cups of coffee couldn't rouse you !
12 miles, Exhausted, well done. Because I am an absolute pedant I looked "nifty" up in the dictionary, and it is defined as "quick" and "agile" as expected, but also as "stylish". Hmm. Can we have a picture please?! Nobody could be less stylish as me, and that's after 4:5 miles
That's funny, Columba, because on the rare occasion that I have been on a bike ride I have had pain in my back where you describe, but on both sides. I only learned in my mid thirties, and have no confidence. So I suppose my muscles have never become accustomed to cycling.
It is my 3 daughters who are responsible for the grandchildren. My sons have not the slightest inclination to start a family. Could be an issue quite soon, since at least one son's partner is now in her thirties and very much wants children.
Well, I think it is established about the ibuprofen. It's what they told me in the hospital.
I did my usual run early this morning, but added a bit on to bring it up to 4:5. In 2010 when daughter H ran her first marathon I remember saying to her "Goodness, how could you run 26 miles? Amazing!" and she said "And point 2, Mum - you have no idea how important that point 2 is!" That's why I added that point 2 on to my run
How are you, Columba? Have your aches and pains dissipated? I wish there was a similar vibe cycle class round here, but I have not managed to track one down.
DBI - Enjoy your weekend in Bavaria. Denzel has developed a limp which is worrying. I have kept him off hard exercise for 3 weeks and it has improved, but is very noticeable when he gets up until he gets himself moving. A visit to the vet tomorrow. Oh dear.
HS - I have 11 grandchildren, 6 girls and 5 boys. They all live very close by and I see them all the time. Eldest grandson has just joined the police so hopefully he will be useful in keeping them all in order!
No running for me today, but I went to a zumba class and then went swimming.
