Laste Rest: well, yesterday really

LMH no idea but SVT is not funny with three miles to go! Still, no harm done and next half is Bath Two Tunnels 20/9 where I'll take even more care

LMH, been the most frustrating 3 months I can remember as it's seemd two steps forward and one/two/three back at times but being sensible(ish) better than long term problems methinks. Slow and steady seems the way forward. Getting well into helping at Parkrun tho!

Wanders in again and waves to Dustin, thanking all others for felicitations as well.
What: Nowt
Why: Being sensible as Achilles is grumbling and have half on Sunday
Last Hard: Being sensible at dawn today
Last Rest: In progress
Lyrics: Yes today

Have plugged in a few races since last on, well runs really but just plodding round being sensible. Frank discussion with doc this week and he's agreed I can train a bit harder once leg is better but left me in no uncertain idea of upper limit on HR so "I have been told!". Given the options I don't mind the parameters. Might change nickname to HRM

Hello lovely people. MIA for too long I know. Came back from Spain and bumbled round Liverpool half in 2.17 and didn't aggravate my Achilles any more so it's progress. Now running with OH at a very sedentary pace as she gets back into running. Got her up to two miles so far Achilles is taking so long and very frustrating and this the major cause for absence: Running envy. Next up Dublin in August with my boys.
What: 2.5 slow
Why: See above
Last Hard: Liverpool 14th June
Last Rest: Yesterday
Will try and read back, as I haven't even been lurking!!
