Just shed a silent tear of sympathy, Rocky.

OH: hope your dad is better.

So glad Giselle is finally at home, Wabo.

Another crazy work week for me and sadly my cough had come back with a vengeance. Guess the stress at work hasn't done much for my recovery :-/

So, more resting required. Thinking of giving up this running lark and taking on knitting instead ...

Amazing, AA. Well done . Now rest up, you've earned it

Kiwi: Agree, those celebration were brilliant. Really loved the idea with those balloons. Re orthotics: go back to the place that made them and have them adjusted. I had mine done in London and they were bliddy expensive too. While they sorted my (then) foot pain, the aggravated my knees so I went back and had them corrected. Didn't cost me a penny. Then of course I lost them during our move ... but that's another story. I bet they'll turn up one fine day in a totally unexpected place

No running yesterday but 2 hours on the bike. Hope the breathing is easier when I try a run tonight ...

Ouch Dibs sounds painful.

Nice progress LMH

Did a 6 mile run yesterday but still struggling with my breathing so I worked way harder than I should. Resorted to the bike today. 2 hours done but I was frozen stiff by the end. Sunny but cold and breezy here today.

Nice xc-ing RFJ and Dustin

Btw, taking about Garmins being rubbish: has anyone tried this new TomTom GPS watch that measures HR without a breast strap? I wonder how accurate HR measured at the wrist might be...

Hi all. Good to see you have your legs back, Dr. D

Garmin trouble sounds frustrating. I had a time a few months ago when mine wouldn't upload. After a while it sorted itself. Hope this one is short lived.

Did my first run in nearly 2 weeks and it was shite. My lungs refuse to take in air which is kind of bad when you run. I reckon it's the aftermath of a bad cough. Hope it goes away over the next few days as I've really had enough now.

Best of luck, AA. Enjoy

Run was piss poor today. I still can't breathe properly. It's ok when I sit or walk but running is a different story. It feels like I can only get air into the upper part of my lungs no matter how hard I try . Anyways, 6 miles in brilliant sunshine made me feel better

Hey y'all - I think I've just done 50 hours of overtime this week, em. At least that's what it feels like. Suddenly work has gone crazy around me   And it's bound to stay like this until xmas. Gawd.

In other news: I've finally stopped coughing up stuff and hope to get back into running this weekend . I really need it for my sanity.

I'm hoping to catch up with the forum week tomorrow

Have a good weekend, all

OMG - the fred is back and right where it belongs: at the top of the page   I only found out now as I've been bogged down at work all week   bah.

AA: hope you recover in time. I've only stopped coughing up stuff yesterday. No running for almost 2 weeks . I will attempt something tomorrow. It will be horrendous after such a long lay off but I need it for my sanity!

Minni: somehow I thought your op was early November. Is it even later than that ?

Well run at the recent HM, Freemers   I wish I was in that shape ...

Welcome McHilly  I remember you from Malc's thread

And well done Bro going sub 3:20

It's great to see a bunch of familiar faces again. I was kind of missing this forum.

Happy racing, folks.

Well done to Other Half's other half

Enjoy the stream train, Gobi. I sound like one at the mo ...

just read on the NY marathon website that they will keep tents and other temporary structures to a minimum due to high winds. I guess my friend will have a rough time out there ....

What: half an hour on the bike
Why: better than nothing
Last hard: this cold
Last rest: since Tuesday
