SK well done on doing tailrunner at Parkrun, I've done a couple, it's so hard to do slow walk/run, you can't get into any rhythm!

Keith, root canal work sounds horrendous...hope the pain is under control now.

Big G that was a great Parkrun time, you must be pleased with your fitness levels now.

i also did local is reasonably flat but I faded a bit in the last lap...28:29 which is 2 mins off the PB, so got some work to do! Still, got 1st VW60, so def worth going!!! 

Good luck to anyone racingthis wk/end.

Aaarrgh- just lost long post

Hi everyone...its great to be finally back on here! Have really enjoyed reading back about all your running/fantastic racing...well done, I'm sorry I've not you mentioned individually- hope a collective 'pat on the back' will be acceptable!

My mum has FINALLY moved...phew, it's been an exhausting few weeks boxing her up and settling her into sheltered accommodation, but she seems to be doing great, which is  brilliant.

Am slowly getting back into the running-Paris seems so long ago now- have booked up several 10ks for over the summer, and couple of halfs for thinking that another marathon next year might be a race too far, which is sad, but in order to run 'forever', I need to listen to the body and be sensible- the groin niggle has gone, but the hip is still an embarking on mega strength/Pilates work in the hope that by next spring....well, you never know

Mower, congrats on your sub 4 - loved reading your report, felt I was there with you!

Keith, has the cold gone? New car sounds posh....I've got MX5

KK, congrats on your huge Parkrun PB, great running. I recall climbing Cadair as a teenager....before Hawks/ jets were invented I think!

Big G, glad Brecon went well, and sounds like you're making good progress with the  running.

MF, glad the car's mended, hope Charlie has been forgiven re choc!!! When's your next mara?

SK, masses of luck for Sunday...I've never run the day before a race, feel I need to be as fresh as poss, but everyones different.

Shades, so glad you enjoyed your race, sounds like you were really pleased with your pacing, and love the bling!

Ive not run for 10days...partly to give body plenty of recovery time, but also I've been up and down to my mums in Lpool - still no moving date, but hoping it'll be in next couple of weeks. So, went for gentle 2.5m trot today.....right knee managed 1.5m, then had to run/walk the last mile....gutted to say the least Hoping it'll help if I do some strength/ Pilates type work over the next few weeks with some little runs every now and then to see how it is.....or dyou reckon it'd help to rest it more?? Big G, I'm in awe of your patience...I haven't got any

(Have got photo ready to post but it's too still work in progress!)

Hope Emmys ok

Mowzer  - great running in nasty winds, well done! I've always worn Asics too, but last couple pairs had to go up a size....thought it was an age thing

MF - sounds like your daughter is doing her own marathon on that trip, hope she survives! How about balance a beanbag on your head race (French equiv?) or 3 legged race, but might need to fill in risk assessment! Hope hay fever season is a light touch this year.

Big G enjoy Brecon Beacons, weather looks good. My sons took me up pen y fan last summer and produced champagne picnic on the top to celebrate my 60th, complete with tablecloth, banner, balloons, cake/ some great comments from other ramblers!

Shades glad your back is ok...are you racing this weekend? My injury was fine during whole of mara, but was going was the knee that become a prob for last few miles....seems ok now but won't run til next week so it gets good rest. 

Sadly have utterly failed with photo upload, despite Big Gs help - but have not given up........yet
