It's adjustable and stretches accommodate whatever you put in it (within reason) no bounce or twisting. I normally carry my phone, couple of gels, some money, car keys and an emergency snickers on longer runs no problem.

The tale of two knees

s-o-t-r the main objective of the exercises is to keep and improve the range of movement in the Knee.

No I don't wear a knee support was advised against it. 

What I find really helps is for the first mile of any run I concentrated on my form to make sure it's correct as I had a tenancy land lighter on the affected knee which could cause problems long term to the other knee/leg.

Hills or flat the same really.

Try and get a couple of physio sessions ideally with a running friendly one. If you live anywhere near Reading I can recommend mine.

I have a mirco tear in my meniscus left knee had it for 3 years now and can run no problem (have done a couple of marathons). After a long run I give it a good massage and have exercises to do given to me by a pysio (who was a runner).  

I think the risk is tearing it further whilst running esp off road but tbh you could do that stepping of the pavement and twisting the wrong way.

I have sushi for lunch and a cheese sandwich.

Was bitten by a horsefly this morning. Horsefly bites always make me feel a bit yuck. The horsefly is now dead.

A question about discrimination in the workplace

Some friends of ours decided because the wife had the better the paid job and also did a bit of travelling it would work for them if he picked up the kids from school when they were sick and so on.

His boss was really annoyed about it and told him it was is wife's job to pick up the kids from school when they were sick. He said he didn't expect male employees to have to do childcare.

My yearly dilemma- which is best be seen and safe or unseen and safe?

So it’s that time of the year when it’s back to r*nning in the dark. I always have this dilemma at this time every year. As I r*n some of my r*ns on my own do I light myself up like a Christmas tree so I am visible to those around me or not?
