Nil report except to say that last evening we saw a film of Hamlet from the National Theatre with Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet. Stunning! He's gone up in my estimation.

Well done on all the choir stuff. The studios should be very interesting.
I saw Hairspray in the West End. I wasn't impressed.

'lo folks.
Nothing to report unless you are interested in a new pair of taps or a single one in the kitchen.

Not too many hills around Pegwell Bay.I raced there once but can't remember what it was.
Do you think IW would mind if I looked at her pumpkins too?

evening all
Still not running much but enjoying life generally.
Lots of autumn leaf colour developing round here. All very beautiful.

It's getting a bit cold for streaking.

Undulations are wrongly named. They are upulations.

We've had many calls in the past couple of years about computer malfunctions and viruses. We just put the phone down and block the number.

IW
Sorry to hear about the potential hip operation. I bet you find a way to carry on running.

After 10 days off you will need maybe 2 runs to get back to your original finely tuned state.

Greetings to one and all,

Apologies for my absence but I'm very busy. It's just me and the dog while MrsJJ looks after her brother-in-law. Her sister, who's his carer, is taking a break in Italy.

JB
Great Parkrun time.

Ceal
Any leftovers?

Sorry about your sister's loss. Hope he didn't suffer too much.

JB6
Great race result. Keep it up. I snuck in a couple of age graded 76%s in my 60s but it wasn't half hard work.

Redhead
Lovely to know you're eating your way round Beachy again. Have a great run.

'lo
Plenty of exercise but little running.

Graham
It's generally recognised that as swe age it's speed that goes before endurance. It therefore makes sense to keep doing the fast work in preference to adding more miles.

Columba
I find that even the flat bits have become steep.

My doodle has been made to sit so many times when runners approach that she now does it automatically. Most runners find it highly amusing.

On the subject of VLM, it's worth a run if you can get in because it's a very quick course. The first 5 - 6 miles are mostly downhill and the rest is virtually flat but you need to be able to ignore the distractions and crowded roads if you want to run quickly. I've run it 4 times and have never got nearer than 9 minutes to my PB.

Doing lots of gardening in preparation for 2 open gardens days next summer . One jointly with a near neighbour in support of the local hospice and one in support of the national gardens scheme. It concentrates the mind wonderfully.

Not been doing much running. There seems to be so many family things happening and I've had a few leg niggles. I'm beginning to wonder if it's worth doing more than a bit of running just to keep fit rather than training with racing objectives in mind.

WD60
I live in Tunbridge Wells which isn't too far from you.

Columba
Hope the horse liked chocolates.

You would be blue blooded rather than that reddish colour?

Don't worry about coming last. Just remember how many people couldn't even hope to run a tough race like that.
