I bet you put those young bucks to shame, Nessie.  Happy holibobs! 

Very creditable placing, marshallini - was your fell race in the Clwydians?

A Streaksaver this a.m. and no bad reaction, so massage, hot, cold & rest, and try for 20 minutes tomorrow.

0700 A decidedly 2nd rate 4.4 miles over the coastal park and up the beach to Burbo Bank, whence I took the trails home.  Spoke too soon: calf tweak & hip issue back in town. 

Channeling JT, I waved at White Dog Man - reciprocated; made cat welcoming sounds - not reciprocated; and the only wind was a Force 3 sou'westerly.

The rain reflected from the road & the umbrellas make the 'middle' work pure impressionism to me [I don't know much about art etc. ...]  Very striking, Dank-art.

SB, we could call ourselves 'My Lost Fun'.      Person eating horses and geese resembling raptors!  Whatever next?

0700 this morning.  4.4 miles that felt easier and left me with more confidence that the persistent porker is getting sorted.

SB, I do feel your pain.  My arm is only now assuming its accustomed flesh colour after a swan dive a month ago.  Hope the hurts are superficial.

marshallini, did you ever run the B'head Park 5?  Hills a telling factor for me.

JT, 13.5 miles seems a popular distance [see SBs report] 

8pm tonight: my further run for 4 weeks or more and I was persuaded to extend by the balmy breezes, kite pilots and seeing a prospective student I interviewed earlier this week!

5.1 miles

It's going to be a great ally in improving your running, Ivan.  Well done!

Excellent task scheduling, Nessie!

0700 Four slow miles, furthest since the porker injury struck.  Slightly awkward gait on road, much easier on trail & beach.  Some improvement this week.

Birkenhead ParkRun

Birkenhead Park's designer, Joseph Paxton, also planned & laid out Princes Park, close to its more illustrious neighbour, Sefton Park, which used Birkenhead Park as a template.  Could Paxton ever have foreseen his sublime work host two parkruns?

0700 today.  Sunny, with a cooling breeze and the promise of a glorious day ahead.  Ventured round the park and down to the fields & trails separating sand hills from habitation.  Less discomfort & more mobility but no pace worthy of the term. 

Three miles.

Art is for all and your work seems very accessible, Dank.

Cautiously easing back into training: a passing hamstring tweak decided to spend a few days with me but it's getting its marching orders right now.
