EDIT: I don't think Bob likes reporting his running to us unless we can go 'Ooooffft' after reading.
No running to report.
Not for 10 days now at least, and much reduced mileage before that. In one of my last posts I recklessly tempted fate by saying that training by HR had kept me largely injury free, and I hadn't had a completely blank week in all 3 years I'd been running...well I have now - donut!
Picked up a calf strain trying to squeeze a long run in the day after a relatively light 5k pace session and before I disappeared on the lash to Poland with the lads. To be honest I might have been able to run through it if it was later in the year, but as it wasn't disappearing in a hurry when I tried that initially, decided to give it and everything else some complete rest.
Feels ok now though, so will probably try to get back to it with a short 2 or 3 miler tonight or tomorrow. Will be interesting to see whether the fitness I've lost is as extensive as the weight I've gained.
Been browsing through occasionally whilst I've been sulking and was great to see McF and DT pull out a couple of big PBs. Looks like most are going fairly well, but hope that Lit (and me) can get back to it properly over Christmas.
And on that note...merry Christmas and a speedy New Year to all. Have a good 'un if I'm still too grumpy to post again beforehand.
