Except for one stretch of about 100m on lovely soft pine needles - shortly after the bike turning circle from memory

Bizarre?

Not sure that it's that bizzare really. No idea what the injury(ies) is but I would say that going from zero to 4 x 5 miles per week in 4-5 weeks is a big step up. I suspect your body is struggling to adapt to the sudden increase in exercise and is hurting as a result.

I would be very wary of increasing your distance at all while you're getting the assorted aches and pains even though you're pain free while you're actually running.

Looks like his feet are causing him grief today; from his splits I'd guess he's mostly walking.

It may be an old wives tale but it works for me. 

I use a very light coating of baby shampoo, leave to dry then rinse well. Bit of spit pre-swim and generally don't have to reapply shampoo for 3-4 swims. A bottle lasts a year or more and I suspect works out cheaper than 'proper' stuff.

Could've sworn I posted a reply to Southern Snail last night but don't see it.  Maybe I just typed it but didn't press submit

Bit worried about all you sock fillers. Almost 2 weeks since the last post; have you run out of socks or are you all constipated?
