Yo folks.

Comrades:  I can't think about it until I have the results of my MRI scans back.  Second one booked for Tuesday, and Arthrogram to be precise, where dye is injected directly into the joint prior to scanning...

So, with this coming up I decided I might as well do a full week of training.  This consisted of 6m on Tue, 4m on Wed with strides, 6m on Friday, 6m on Sat including parkrun (2nd lady and first old lady but very slow!) and finished the week of with a 20 today.  Result?  Flipping hip feels better than it has done in weeks!  WFT?

Miss Minni also nailed it and off to study midwifery. Celebrated her 18th yesterday and last night with all her friends and today they have all got into their chosen Unis. Very emotional morning!

Well done SJ3!

Haha yes Lit you better get used to hills!  I might see you at the odd race up that way.  If I ever get back to racing....

GM - you're really not having a good time at the moment.  That is a horrible think to witness.

Lit - where in Scotland have you moved to?  I agree there are some very speedy ladies in Scotland.  I think its all that fell and hill running!  I live on the Border and I do much better in English races than Scottish but always wondered if that was just my age category.  I did one half marathon where I was about 14th but 11th in my then category of V40.

2old -pick up DD on your way up!

Chrissie's book is brilliant. I love everything about her. I love the way she borrowed stuff and turned up unprepared for races. Just shows determination is more important than gear - and a bit of talent doesn't go miss!

You mean it's the nipper who is throwing out these brilliant PR times??? Rugby is big in Newcastle and I'm sure cycling is too. Newcastle Uni is great and a fantastic location. If he ends up there you must do my favourite race - the Town Moor marathon.

2old - excellent! I'm just south of Barcelona so if you want to jog up here for, say, 9am we'll run together!

Where are you 2old? If you're closeby then I'd love a running partner although there are loads of runners here.

Nell - no I got a GNR place instead. However, Miss Minni will (hopefully) be starting at Napier in Sept and that's the weekend she needs to be ferried up.

Barry - yes and no. My swimming is very bad and I know I'd need to do it 2 or 3 times a week for a long time to get good enough for a IM (which is obviously the distance if want to do!). My nearest pool is a 40m round trip so not that easy. Maybe once master Minni has flown the nest. Maybe something for my 50th ????...

OO - I normally never run on holiday but I have been out everyday here. I ran at 5pm today and yes it was hot but I loved it. I'd like to go up onto the hills behind and hit some of the trails but I don't think I'd get a pass for that!

GM - yes I'm in Spain, South of Barcelona at a town OO recommended. Thank you btw OO - it's perfect. Spent some time in Barcelona too and my parents are flying out tonight for a few days with us. I'm looking forward to that, kind of. I've been enjoying some nice warm runs for a change.
