Wondering how Red got on.
JJ - I hadn't realised you've been running alternate days. That's quite a lot of running.
Matsmum - and Exhausted - our wind-up gramophone had that same dog, Nipper, on it. We had a lot of classical music, some dance music (parents favoured Latin American) and Peter and the Wolf, which I loved. The gramophone needed winding between every record. And there were lots of records to a single piece of music (e.g. a symphony, or "Peter...") so that was a lot of winding. If the record did slow down, and the music went all woozy, I hated it! I'm surprised Jailhouse Rock was on 78s, as by the time Elvis came along there were 33s and 45s, and I wouldn't have thought 78s were still being made.
Ran for exactly an hour and a half today. Without Garmin (now in the post) I'm not sure of the distance, but will have been close to 7 miles.
TE - British Masters, no less, - very impressed.
