Red - re losing posts, do what I do and prepare in Notepad then copy/paste it into RW. Huge congrats on reaching 100 marathons. I hardly ever go out walking these days without my poles - so much easier both uphill and downhill. Mmmm .. chips (but ruined with curry sauce imho ). Good luck with the 52 in 52 challenge.
HS - hadn't realised your fancy phone had fingerprint recognition .. I've only recently got round to adding a security code to my smartphone.
DBI - glad to see my idea that aquabike was like a spin class but with added effort to cope with the water was on the right lines. Re tri club aerobics, I'd wager it's you getting fitter rather than it being easier. Sorry to hear your sad news about one of your tri club ladies.
Columba - glad to hear you were able to run with your club and your knee behaved itself. Uh-oh, just seen your later post where you mentioned it was reproaching you
RF - always good to help celebrate other's birthdays.
Aquarius - good to see you back. I've had orthotics in the past but these days (touch wood) don't need to use them.
My eye test revealed I needed new reading glasses - picked them up at the weekend. I can now use my old ones for outside/garage and the 'old old' ones can be dumped (or shouldn't that be HAVE been dumped!)
I've recently registered with a local dentist - had my first check-up last week and there were no surprises apart from the size of the bill.
I also went to the doctor's as my ears have been getting blocked lately. The nurse checked and sent me away to use olive oil for a couple of weeks to soften the wax. I'm due back there next Tue to get them syringed but the olive oil is already helping.
I mentioned my sore glutes after the over-enthusiastic gardening. That went away and I was able to run with my club last Wed eve. But I've done nothing since then as we've had workers here for several days (scaffolders first, then Anglian to fit new gutters - and carpenters at the same time fitting a cupboard in our en-suite). We had asbestos in our soffits so we also had some specialists here removing it on Fri complete with coveralls, breathing equipment and a portable shower to clean off afterwards.
The gutter men finished late this morning so I've just got back from playing bowls. Playing 9 (18?) holes of golf tomorrow morning and if I have the energy, should be running with the club tomorrow evening.
