Hi all, sorry for being away for a few days. I'm staying with my Dad at the moment as he's had his hip replaced recently, and the person who was looking after him is away for a week. We haven't throttled each other yet, but there's still time But, yes I'm back home now. I happened to fly back to the UK on the day of the Tunisian troubles.
From a running point of view, I am getting thoroughly peed off with things at the moment. I've now got another back issue, which is further up my back and on the side. I have no idea what it is, but it feels like I've trapped a nerve or something. I did a lovely 7.5 miles on Friday, but Saturday I was in agony. I don't think it was from the running though; I think it may be the bed I'm sleeping in at Dad's. I'm not a happy bunny
It means I've taken the decision to pull out of the DD. I just don't think there will be a chance of me getting ready for it with all the running I've missed, so I am in the process of transferring the race number. I was hoping to do a marathon in April and one in May for prep for the DD, but I have to be realistic and say it's just not going to happen. So I've stuck my name down to help out again at the race, and I think I will be timekeeping again at the marathon point.
But, the 10K Claire's school is organising has been firmed up, with posters made available etc. It's the day after the DD so I hope I'll trot around that. A few of my club have said they will turn up too, so that will be good, but probably very emotional for me!
