For toad fans, I carried the box & toad to the freshwater Marina and set it free by the shore.  It could decide whether  grass & moss, or water was its preference.  I didn't know how long it had been in the box but it looked rather lethargic as I gently tilted the box.

Welcome back, JT.  So glad you're mended.  Small increments and being good to yourself.  Look back to what you've achieved & draw inspiration from this.  


10-mile darkrun last night: Marina, beach & coastguard station.  Asked by woman in car if I'd take a toad *ulp!* in a box to the Marina and liberate it.  Classic Scouse wind up - except it wasn't!

You're racing mighty fine, Cal.

A couple of miles round the park last night to bring up 30 for the week.  Set a 1500-mile target for the year - looking promising to date.

That's a very impressive race time, given your tribulations.  Excellent!

In my biker days, long, long ago, I'd while away time with a beverage or seven.....

Great training & prep royally rewarded, Cal!  A 10-mile PB to boot too?

Becks: if a mile running makes it worse, switch to a gentle walk, warm bath, massage and aspirin or paracetamol.  You'll have fitness & stamina to spare from your training programme.

N.B.  I have no clinical or medical experience.

The week leading up to a HM or similar often descends into doubt but almost everyone has got the necessary miles banked and should award themselves a large, herbivorous mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout.

My nooo shooes [Saucony Jazz] are just about reconciled to being off-road/XC - comfortable, with a firm ride.

Excellent endurance, Hazelnut: within the top 36% of all women.  Well done!
