Almost a week since I was here - oops.
Red - thank you for thinking (and worrying) about my brain getting cold when I am hatless. Well done re sneaking in an 'extra' marathon at Dymchurch. And for getting that course PB.
BIW - reading about your rehab they certainly are keeping you active. How lovely to get an unexpected present and a get well card.
HS - it's the pun of "Almost Athletes" that makes me think the club do the hard work of training but also have a 'fun' side to them as well. Hope you have managed to get your Garmin set up by now. And that tablet! Having read on a bit .. how annoying to get the Garmin at a bargain price and then seeing it even cheaper .. grrrr. BTW, I wasn't aware of this business of ideal cadence that you and others have commented on.
Exhausted - tsk tsk re Mr Exhausted organising so much to do you had no time to run.
Columba - as the race is an unusual distance (8 miles) does that guarantee a PB?
We had Margaret's family (all 12 of them) here at the weekend for the delayed 'xmas' get-together. It was hard work with lots of preparation and clearing up afterwards but it was great to see them all.
Having spent ages researching the best sim-only deal for Margaret she's now wondering about getting a new phone - ho hum. Also, I was given duff info about when I can upgrade for free so any change of my phone has been put on the back burner until the end of March.
I finally managed to get out for a run today - my first one for almost a week. The strong winds and rain didn't help but my legs just didn't have it in them. I had planned to do 4 or 5mls but took a short cut back and only managed 3.5 miles.
As soon as I've posted this I'll ring my friend Alan as the weather looks okay tomorrow and we haven't played golf for quite a few weeks.
I also need to phone my cousin Hilary - we didn't manage to organise a get-together in December and I still have one last bag of xmas presents to deliver!
