Loving the new job thanks LMH.  It's fun being Heedie.  Just home right enough, so it's very busy!

Well done LMH and Poppy.  Two great runs.  

I, rather typically stupidly, did a 10 mile race yesterday after 2 months no training and my groin strain/sports hernia still sore with every step.  Loaded up on painkillers and finished in 77:54, which was quite good I thought.  

Reason: Home village, done it every year, didn't want to lose the streak.  7 up!!!

Thanks for the congrats! 

Good session Dustin.

My clubmate Andy Butchart is racing in Rio tonight, so I will stay up for the first time!  Lynsey Sharp in the 800 too.  She might medal, but Andy will just be over the moon to have made the final.

Thank you for all good wishes.  I'm pleased to report that I got the job and I am now Head of my school, exciting times indeed!

Love the lyrics, one of my favourite bands and songs and rather topical too!  I should have known yesterday's too.  D'oh. 

Rest is the suggested cure, just give it time.  Happy to wait as enjoying the biking in the mean time.

Back at work unofficially, we start next Thurs when I am being interviewed for the post of permanent Head.  Fingers crossed!

Still bad, no way I can run.  Doctor confirmed likely sports hernia on Tuesday so am being sent for an ultrasound.  He feels it will heal in time, so fingers crossed.

Morning.  Corker of a ride yesterday, 60.1 miles in 3:34.  Average pace of close to 17mph, plenty of hills in there to work me hard.  Legs were goosed afterwards, feeling okay today though.  Might have a wee recovery ride this afternoon but might just give it a miss too.  

Lyrics, nope.

LMH - fantastic running.  

I will enter some ride+run events once my strain or whatever it is, is sorted.  Also want to do some Etapes around Scotland.  Lycra is here already but it needs to be brighter!! 

Went to the Dunoon half marathon today, loved watching it and supporting others.  But  still felt like I should have been doing it.

Lyrics, yes.

Dibs - hope your pain is gone soon.

I've not been officially diagnosed yet but since my 'groin strain' shows no improvement  after rest, I've self diagnosed a 'sports hernia'.  Almost certain that's what it is - pain while lying down and stretching, pain when I sneeze, no pain with walking or cycling, just running. Seeing a doctor on Tuesday.

So.....I have become a proper cyclist now.  I am up to 44 miles in distance and today I did 30 miles at an average pace of 18.3 mph.  I haven't a clue if I am doing well or not but I am already starting to think about entering things to find out.  I still cycle in my trainers but will buy some pedals+bike shoes soon. I'm making my way up the Strava leaderboards so am making decent progress.

Hope all well with everyone, hoping to get back to regular posts now.
