Morning all. A wee leg stretcher today 5k to turn the legs over in just over 21 mins. Felt sluggish and tired, had little chicken pox ridden girl clambering over me in the night and fidgeting so feel quite tired. Needed to turn the legs over at marathon pace today so in that sense I achieved what I wanted although it was harder than it should have been. Sensible to keep the run short while I still fight the tonsilitus. Meds are doing their thing. Will try to double the distance tomorrow but slower with less effort.

Leggy - my advice is just to go backwards until you find it

9k run tonight to keep the legs spinning. Felt very nice. This time when I coughed my body didn't convulse and come to a complete and abrupt stop. So I'm taking that as a good sign.

You feeling any better Jimbob?

Anyone getting a bit excited?

Rico, yes a bit, anti Bs starting to do their thing......not in quite as dark a place as I was 2 days ago. I'm realistic about my expectations, I'll do as well as I can and be happy with any result ....

Greg, a cold FFS? 

anyone in two minds about Corcoran's, this is a drink up Viking style, we will drink flagons of ale and we have wenches and everything (they where Eiffel Tower dresses)

Spot on Dids. It's like you had a camera on me watching my every move. First I was medically assessed on the phone by a narky gp receptionist who has about as much medical qualification as a pack of Morrisons value tomatoes. She concurred that I could see the doctor "in 24 hours" then put the phone down on me while I was explaining that I was not in a good place. Took the bus to A&E and I've never seen a busier ER. It was heavo but unbelievably I was seen and clear of the hospital pharmacy within the hour back on another bus to go and collect my car from it's MOT and service.
