JJ - good to see you able to get some jogging in!
Torque Steer - not happy to see you back on the exercises again. Did they say you did too much too quickly? Maybe next time don't worry about pace, just enjoy and then throw in a few races and see how you go. Trouble with people who have run well in the past have very high expectations, I know only too well, and can be disappointed with average results. But it is still better to be out there. Hope you heal quickly.
Chris - not good to hear about your fall - I take it very quietly when I go off road, especially if I have Mae with me, I am very conscious that she could very easily tip me over, especially on very steep downhills!
I hate the heart rate monitor strap too and I'm very conscious of it if I have it on, think it restricts my enjoyment of the run, so haven't used it very often so can't give you any help re heart rate.
Graham - good luck with your race!
Ceal - I have never cooked with chilies - not the fresh ones anyway. I can only imagine how awful that must have been. The closest I have got to that was thinking I was putting toothpaste on my toothbrush, and it was really deep heat!! I was on fire!
