Rattler - good luck for tomorrow . Looking forward to hearing all about it.
Auranya - you have plenty of time to slowly build up a good strong base for Brighton. As the river path is completely flat, when you start adding a few miles try to include some hills. Those around Hillside or Presdales are good. The one up past the George is a killer - I only usually do it twice in one session, although I know elder daughter used to make cross-country club (10/11yr old) do it 6 + times .
Not good news re the shoulder . No work or driving for 6 wks until I go back in January as I have to keep the shoulder as still as possible. No running for weeks either, though doc said running wasn't so problematic - it was if I fell through lack of balance or tripping (again!) then I could make the fracture a lot worse. Have been a couch potato this week, so next week will start walking and stationary bike to try to keep some fitness up. Doesn't hurt unless I move it, but it's rather uncomfortable. Had to walk through shopping centre after hospital (to catch bus) and became very anxious about people who weren't looking and came near to bumping into me. Will have to re-assess events planned for next year, but plenty of time for that.
