Ceejay, if i recall the Lowry Shopping centre is only fast food, no actual restaurants. BUT if you go across the road to media city, there are some real nice places to eat.

Well i feel like i have lost some ground now. Did a 20km run last week and my normal runs midweek and was suppose to do 16km yesterday but due to a glute problem i missed it. 

I did do 5km tonight to check the glute and all appears ok so far so back to it. But with Oulton this week it will be three weeks without a really long run. 

I do have planned though a 20 and a 22 miler before race day so fingers crossed i will be good to finish. Seeing everybody elses runs i am reading with envy hehehe.

Missed my first run for months today, due to my glute problem. 

However later in the day it started to feel better as only a niggle. 

Worth taking the day off to ensure i get back and running sooner. Will be a short running week for me this week with the Oulton Park half, but due to missing my LSR today, i may use this as a training run rather than a race to ensure my glute is fully repaired.

Gradual improvement throughout the day.  Will be ok tomorrow hopefully, this is a real slight niggle, but best to wait for it to go.

Ok will do, this feels aweful, right not to run but it hurts not getting out there, feel like I am losing ground but I know in reality one lost run is fine

Decided not to run today. It is slight but I can feel it . I could run but risk making it worse. I don't like missing the longer runs. But better to miss one than three. Could give it a go Monday night perhaps?
