SB, some very earnest medical/nursing types are on my case, saying I need rest days - but I seem to be so conditioned to run daily that missing a day just doesn't appeal.  

15 days today and a 40-min. trail/path effort last night - longest in time terms since the injury.


Lily - loved your race report.  I remember the Ashbourne HM v well: tough, hilly but almost impossibly scenic.

SB, two consecutive days of running.  Minimum distance/time is up to the streaker.  Mine's 10 minutes or a mile.  No walking.  

13 days, and still not a Streak but a chat at the university last week has led to me entering the Preston ten-miler in mid-November.   Fast n flat and scene of some speedy times years ago.

nessie, it's far too simple for me to slip back into running every day - but if I don't name it, then it's not a streak!

Magnificent engineering! 

Well, I said I'd release the news that I was running again.....and I am!  My blog on 'fetcheveryone' is titled 'Learning to crawl...' and that's what last night's 10 minutes and this morning's 16 min. felt like!  A slight awkwardness inside my shin and DOMS coming my way, sans doute! 

Now, this is *not* a Streak....just so you know....

SB and JT, thank you sincerely for your uplifting words. 

Just dropping in to wish you all well and say I'm still in walk mode.  However, I've less discomfort now and plan a five-minute ultra short running outing in 12 days' time.

Mk III?  Well, let me get back on my running feet and I'll see.....
