Another 10 minutes tagged on to last night's outing: 1h 03min, largely on the car-free avenues of Crosby & Blundellsands.  The porker's whining a little but, otherwise, more progress.

Great stuff, Nessie - not a shabby time for a flattish road '15', let alone a rollercoaster clagfest! 

JT - nothing wrong with making such a decision.  Your next outing will eclipse the last. 

Me, 8pm tonight.  Quite a perky 10k, all factors taken into consideration.  Back in my trashed Adidas Glide shoes, a fair proportion of off road in the coastal park & over Burbo Bank.  Kept meeting a group of lads on bikes who were friendly & respectful.

SB - a case of discretion being the better part of valour.  You're scarcely on budget mileage after all.....

Stoopid sore heel from noo sooes   Hip & porker slowly settling down.  A breezy but pleasant morning, too refreshing to miss, so out at 7, Crosby Baths, beach and the Coastal Park - nearly all off road!

Thanks for the thoughtful words.  Pain in hip has been downgraded to discomfort and I made a thorough tour of Victoria Park - just on my doorstep in case of *bad things* - lasting 20 minutes at 7am.

Not the best of news on the hip niggle front.  36 hours' rest didn't shift it and I scratched out an awkward 6.1 miles to the former coastguard station & back thro' Blundellsands at 7.30pm.  May try alternating a 1.1 Streaksaver with a soft-surface 40 mins.

Watch this space......

Still troubled with hip & arse muscle unnecessariness - but not debilitating enough to cut to a Streaksaver, although I really should....   Broke out a brand spanking noo pair of Gel Nimbus shoes yesterday: my Adidas Glides were grinning like some crazy fool.

10ks are the order this week but I lost Sunday to a Streaksaver, so it might be a tight squeak getting my 40 miles in this week!

That's a humungous PB, Jack, suggesting more to come!

Very healthy mileages, Nessie & JT.   Marshallini: flat it ain't out there.  Any Sandstone Trail involved?  Still a good outing.

A sore hip cut me back to a 1.1 mile Streaksaver last night; this morning, however, I just took it mile by mile & logged 6.1 without any vital bits dropping off.

A Haribo fan, then, JT.  Is the factory still  based in Pontefract?  

Little Feat often keep me company: 


5.2 decidedly damp miles at 7am - and I was nowhere near the sea!  Much more like XC!

Finally, big good luck messages going out to Jack - have a great race!

Hehe!  Lily, I am beyond redemption, in thrall to The Streak!  My second in 8 years: the first died at 1315 days.

Lily, you make a good point and it's at night I should worry....but I don't, so I may one day be seen racing the ferry to Ireland. 

Thanks, Jack & Nessie   Here's hoping the bugs & niggles vamoose, Jack, and you have a top race.
