Great North Run 2014

Thanks Sub329. I can't find anything to say I can defer. Could you point me in the right direction. I don't mind paying again to know I have an entry if that's what I decide to do. I still have to think if my knees would hold out now that I have been diagnosed with arthritis.

Rich I got your mail and replied.

Hello all. Hope chiropractor sorts things out for you RE.
Been really busy here. 10 miles walked at weekend and 6 miles walked/plodded yesterday. Child minding today.
Sad news my son in law (well ex as he and my daughter divorced many years ago but we have remained good friends) died at the weekend. He had an inoperable brain tumour. Been to see his parents today. His new wife didn't tell them but posted on Facebook to say he had died. What a horrible way to find out your son had died.
Back to work tomorrow ????

Can't see me being fit enough to do this.  Does anyone know if you can hold your entry over to next year or is it use it or lose it?  Ta.

Evening. Lucky boys off on their travels.

Are you busy at work that is making you tired? Stress and tiredness can wipe you out. Maybe just short runs to help relieve the stress. Would that work? Sorry you are having a horrible time just now.

Managed another plod and it went a little better. Having to mix plodding with days of walks seeing as I am doing Kielder Water Challenge so still need to train to walk 25 miles.

Weather not good here. Wind and dull. It was lovely up till Tuesday but has gone down hill. Typical Scotland.

Hope you have managed out for a run.  Hope you are ok.  What is the event that is coming up?

I walked 3 miles yesterday and I plodded 3 miles today.  My legs were strong, left knee protested a little but the big thing was my serious lack of breath.  It was my first pplod and I just couldn't breathe properly so it was very much a plod/walk.

How are the boys?

Thank you Limper. I did 14 miles but was struggling for about the last 3. No idea why. This weekend my plan is to start plodding. Hoping to have a short walk later today then because of work times can't fit in anything till Friday.

Sorry to hear you are still struggling. Hope things get better for you soon.

What a lovely day it has been. So glad I don't work a Monday. Did a lovely 11 mile walk in the sunshine. Back of neck feels very hot tonight. Guess sun was behind me.

How are you all?
