Over 60s training.

TS - oh dear, hope you recover soon. Nevertheless, nothing stops you, does it?

Glad it was painless, TE. That's what I found when I had one of those: tedious, but painless.

NZC - "run smarter" is still "run"

Poppy - I haven't entered the Lake V, as I was supposedly training for a "fast 10k" this year until my knee put a stop to that. I'll see how it goes. One can enter on the day. Are you doing it?

TS - ouch as to the tumble, but very good news that in spite of the force with which you went down, your back did not react.

I steer clear of listening to people like Farage. I just catch up on brief news bulletins from time to time. I do hope TS is right about Cameron nudging the EU to lay down conditions which will be unacceptable to the Brexiters.

Poured with rain here nearly all day. Did clear up and the sun came out about a couple of hours ago, but clouded over again now and looks very threatening.

Red, I hadn't even realised you were on the Fetch website until I saw your "comment" on my blog. Glad you're updated now. However many marathons did you add? TE - yes, happy with the new website now it's overcome its teething problems (which may only have affected the phone version).

That's a wonderful picture, TE, you look really determined! Excellent result, impressive WAVA as usual.

"Welcome back to chaos" indeed. The whole thing is very disturbing.

Went swimming this afternoon, and my knee behaved considerably better than last time (it was the outward kick in the breastroke it didn't like; but seemed ok today).

BIW, you must be so pleased to be trotting around again even if you have got to take it very carefully.

LOL at Red's comment about the horse poo.

Ceal - your daughter is amazing. I think you've told us before about some of her swimming events, - really cold water, I seem to remember. 14 degrees, with a cold spring running into the lake in one place, is bad enough.

My knee does seem to be getting gradually better overall. Sauntering doesn't bother it, but a fast determined walk makes it twinge.

Went swimming this afternoon; some breast stroke, some backstroke; the sideways kick of the breaststroke doesn't seem to be bothering the knee now.

Loved John's post...
I'm surprised at the reports that the Young voted mainly to stay in, and the Older to come out. I voted in, for various reasons, one of them being that I remember all the fuss about whether or not we should join in the first place; and having finally decided to join, I felt we should stay.

Hello all, I got back from Norway a couple of days ago but have only just got round to catching up with this thread.

Delighted to see that MT has rejoined us! And that NZC is back!

I have yet to speak  to or hear from anyone who is happy with the referndum result. You all know there's a petition going, asking for a rerun?

I did the 10k "Midnight Sun" race; knee behaved all right for the early part, then started hurting (however, I did manage to finish) and flared up good and proper, though it's now calmed down considerably. I have made another physio appointment but not for a couple of weeks. Meanwhile I shall probably not run at all, unless it seems totally better. Writing a blog (for the Fetcheveryone website) about the Norway trip and the race; if anyone wants a lot of detail I'll post a link on here.

Hello all, I've been back for a few days but still catching up with  things. The Midnight Sun races were great; I did the 10k, all the rest of my "party" did the half marathon. Knee flared up again during and after the race, but is calming down again now. I have made another appointment to see the physio, but not for a couple of weeks as she's away (on holiday, I suppose). I am writing a longish blog which I shall put on the Fetcheveryone website and can put a link on here if anyone wants all the details.

I'm as devastated as the rest of you re the referendum result; and have signed the petition but don't suppose it will lead to anything.
