really sorry to hear that, GD - hope you soon sorted  . . . 

hope the niggle short-lived, Gul  . . . .

not much to report here - continuing to tick over, but 2 weeks since 16 miler, 5 since 20 miler.   35 this week with longest 10.  Parkrun y'day - interesting results

welcome back, MsE ; nice return with the 22 

been poor here also with posting, but has been quiet period - last week was away for a few days, but managed to eke out a 40 mile week, this week old knee niggles have returned, so combined with a busy social period decided to have a "down" week - just one 7 mile fartlek completed. Even missed my Sat morn jaunt today . . . 

Back to it next week - I'm getting a bit flabby amidships

Leslie - admirable fortitude - hang in there  . . . .
Gul, VTr - good monthly miles - just 175 here, few days lost to caution re niggles, but 2 x 20's bagged.
Bit more encouraging today (yesterday)?  as I adopted my Feb/March modus operandi of 2 hours sleep preceding 10 mile warmup, then parkrun 21:08, 3 mile cooldown for 16 ---  compared to 4 weeks ago - 2 mile w'up & 21:58.
1st VoGit & 75.8% WAVA, so a bit more like it, although some way to go yet  . . .

good parkrunning by the Barks & OO's (as is now the norm)   . . . . . .

Nice faffing, Gul . . . . .
belated b'day greetings, VTr
great stuff from Badbark as usual - belter of a session with the parkrun . . . .

my "disjointed" 20 at the weekend has context now - slept until 10am Monday (usually up 7 latest), then by 11 felt so cr*p had to lay on sofa, and awoke at 2pm !!  Felt like bad hangover, but no alcohol taken over weekend - must have been fighting some lurgy or other. Bit better y'day - managed steady 7, this morn 6 mile with tentative "tempo" efforts. Hopefully back on track now . . . .

Impressive schedule there, Badbark . . . . . .
Fine racing MsE, Gerard . . .
Leslie - fingers x'd for your appontment  . . .
OO - every run is a hill session here . . . . .let me know next time you're around, if you desire a slow outing 
Gul - good idea to take a rest - or at least, I would have said so, having decided after Tuesday's 7 mile fartlek to have a mini-rest of 3 days ((knee & foot sore, plus felt very tired) - but today's 20, although accomplished, was a disjointed affair of heavy legged plodding, feeling ok and a bit more nimble, but then stopping to stretch out a couple of times as legs so stiff-feeling.  Odd.

not sure if this counts as late Saturday or early Sunday, but must be first time I've posted before Gul - 
just had to say big well done to junior Lorenzo - excellent miling  . . .
