Hi guys - just a quick post from me! I thought the thread had disappeared like me too!
Had a lovely time in Rarotonga - it was a bit of a running/walking holiday. We did a 5km fun run, then I did a 10km while my son did the 31km and then we did the Nutters' run.
Yes, you did have to be nuts! Up and over the island. Parts of it were real hands and knees stuff, clinging on to tree roots and hoping they didn't give way. There were ropes to hang on to in parts, and streams to cross.
It was very hot and I felt sick at the top and dreaded the thought of going down! Went down quite a bit of it backwards like climbing down a ladder. Very slow but I wanted to get to the end in one piece.
It was a lovely holiday, and I don't think I have hurt myself! Which is always a big plus. Ran 9km with my friend yesterday. No run today. I have been running very sparingly so I don't upset my knees too much.
Some good running going on here. Sorry you still seem to be injured Torque Steer, and good to see you are swimming again Columba.
Great that Mick has a parkrun and big congrats on turning 70!
You look like you had a wonderful holiday Ceal.
