Hello everyone.

Finally saw a surgeon who surprised me by telling me that my suspected sports hernia was an actual hernia.  Surgery coming up within 12 weeks.

Can I run while I await surgery?

Yes, she says, if you can put up with the pain.  Result!

4 miles on wed and Thursday.  Rest day today.  Good to be back, plodding along.

Lovely 5 mile run in the most perfect conditions imaginable. 

Wall to wall blue skies, frosty ground, no wind.

Nice cycling Dibs.  

I am going to go for a wee run now and then a cycle or hillwalk after work, which finishes at 12.  Still leaves plenty time for either.

Lyrics, thankfully not!

Hello everyone.  Hope you are all good.

I did 4  miles in glorious sunshine today, I just can't be bothered sitting on my ass anymore.  Still waiting for appointment with the surgeon for the sports hernia but have come to the conclusion that some slow jogging won't make anything worse.  I hope.

Lyrics, nope.

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!
