Kendal Mint Cake isn't available in supermarkets, mostly. It's widely available in the Lake District! Otherwise, it's available at Lakeland stores - the ones that sell kitchen stuff etc. And some online stores - I see Blacks has it, for example, and they seem to be offering collect-from-store.
The ankle (left!) is improving. I ran nine miles last Sunday (not the one just gone). This Sunday I was going to aim for 10 - then on Friday, just walking around at home, I caught my left big toe in my right trouser leg and strained it! Ran at my parkrun on Saturday, which was probably a mistake, but we had enough volunteers and I'll be Run Director the next two weeks with no chance of running, so... Anyway, it ached enough afterwards that I realised it needs a few days of rest. Frustrating. Still hoping I might be able to run an autumn HM - if I can find one in the area. Can't go for Barns Green at the end of September because I'm Race Director for my club's 5-mile XC race, the Switchback 5, on the same day! I'd love to aim for the Jog Shop Jog 20 in October but I'm not sure I can increase to that distance by then, which is a shame. Got to think long term with this tendon injury, give it and all the other soft tissues a chance to repair, regenerate and adapt to compensate for the damage.
