aw DL sad news - but I'm expecting you to hear the patter on tiny paws very soon

glad your Mum is OK MC and you can all get a bit of rest

back in the office today. did 5 miles with club yesterday - they go a bit fast for my liking but I'm sure its good for me to make an effort

oh the joys of pet ownership eh DL

good call Podds - doing something challenging is one thing, doing something that would be miserable is just not worth it.

Sluggs - I don't mind hearing about your mum at all - I empathise. we're in a different situation now and I know how hard it can be. My mum doesn't know any of us really and has pretty much lost her speach and mobility - I think we've mourned for her over a period of time and just accept and love the person she is now which is easier in some ways xxx

I'm off work today in lieu of working the last bank holiday, will be doing some sorting at home and spend a few hours on my Dad's paperwork. have already been out for a lovely walk with Ned I think there were some signs of improvement - or is that wishful thinking haha

well done on the tri Daffers - I remember the complications of transitions and you are not making in the slightest tempted to do another

so sorry it didn't work out this time Melds - I love your attitude

oh Sluggy difficult times with SM - looks like you need to start thinking about a future plan, its only downhill unfortunately

(((Sue))) I hope you are feeling OK after your car scare

I did my first parkrun on Saturday - had to drive to Walsall and in my usual disorganised manner ended up late and legged it to the start to find everyone had gone - so I just carried on and joined in a  bit late  it was just over 26 mins on my watch but official time was 29 - I really need to go back and do it properly

Garden gutting continues

pompoms on supercharge

I think I prefer my old lady body to my 19 year old body - I'm strange like that

not run yet today but new running shoos arrived in the post so I shall try them out later

Sue I hope the little one is on the mend - and because I'm so sad I got all excited about your weeding tool and will be googling later

Yums  sounds like your Mum is doing well - lovely that you are able to get some quality time together

vibes on hyper charge for the weekend warriors

oh Sluggy its so difficult isn't it! the drugs became a massive issue with my Mum - my dad had to get a safe in the end and lock them away

err, and no thanks to being young again - but being a grown up is pretty tough sometimes!

2 Neddy miles this morning - he was a good boy although sometimes decides he deserves a treat for no reason and I can't move for him wrapped round my legs and his nose in my pocket so have to give in  Managed to get off work on time on Tuesday to do 5 miles with running club too! I need to keep plodding to keep my mind off the state of the house - decorating mainly done but a few jobs still to do and the garden is being gutted

welcome Laurentius. listen to Meldy she knows about stuff. I would just say do most of your runs at a really comfortable pace and walk if you need to. you could then use your parkruns as your tempo run and use that as a marker. I would think 30 mins is a great time for your age category

I have done 2 miles this morning with my little pony - its a learning curve! he seems to be much calmer in the mornings than in the evenings though, he's a funny character

well done on the tri Podds

and well done to everyone who got out in the heat, it was a bit of shock to see the sunshine - I was running in hailstones only a week ago

we're having some work done to the house - got the hall decorated and new flooring and not we are having the garden gutted - it is a disaster area! needs sorting though and its nice to be able to have a fresh start with it

not me Podds - stuck in the office but at least I have a window

haha Westie sounds like you have appointments for every part of your body - but can you manage 200mtrs without getting out of breath

I see Jays and woody woopeckers on my runs and walks - but I've never seen a kingfisher which I would love to see!

any tips on cybercrime gratefully received Melds

its my busy week this week but managing to get some short runs in
