HS - as I thought, "finger or thumb bias" was referring to which side is the weighted one. That combined with the camber of the green, it sounds very complicated to get to grips with. I used to have an HTC phone but have a Samsung these days. "Blink Feed" was a new one on me but I asked Mr Google and he pointed me to a website which explains more .. http://www.htc.com/us/support/htc-one-m8/howto/464893.html .. hope it helps. Well done re Wed's speedy 6 miler.
Columba - you mentioned Matsmum being an early riser. Would you be surprised to hear I've been staying up later than usual since retiring and consequently, getting up around 8am? Glad to hear the wine and chocolate filled the gap left by PT son going.
Skippy - as you may see if you read back a few pages, I am (mostly) sticking to 10k races in future after problems (again!) at the Bath Half. The exceptions will be a 5K race which I try and do with a running friend - and a 10ml off-road race in my home town which my family enjoy cheering me on at (they can drive round to the 3ml and 6ml points).
BIW - glad to hear it is bright and sunny with you too. Sounds like Charlie is doing well with his training.
Red - as I said on Facebook earlier, KH is an attention-seeking ***** and I despair that the media allow themselves to be used by her to spout her comments (I won't say opinions because she only says outrageous things to keep herself in the spotlight). If they would only ignore her she would hopefully fade away.
Matsmum - well done re running three days in a row. As I mentioned to Columba I am currently staying up later and waking up later with the novelty of not having to go to work. Normal service will be resumed soon!
Exhausted - I am resisting the temptation to look up the lyric you posted. Loving the fact you don't run for a few days and then just head out and do a 19ml run - how do you manage it?
I managed to catch the sun on our walk on Monday - should have realised and put some sunscreen on before we set out.
I didn't quite manage a morning run yesterday but I did go out soon after lunch and do a 4.5ml loop around town. It was lovely to be out running in the sunshine in just shorts and a t-shirt. I managed an average pace of around 10:25mm (a bit faster than usual for me) and hope to see some improvements over the coming months. Planning to go out tomorrow morning and will try a rep session on the hill near the leisure centre (its a mile away so allows a warm-up and cool down session at either end).
Exhausted - still not Google'd that lyric (that would spoil the fun!) but now have a hunch its from "Chelsea Morning" by Joni Mitchell?
Last time I ran in Cirencester Park I saw some dog-walkers and this lyric popped in my head as I ran towards them .. "Keep those mutts away from me, I don't find this stuff amusing any more" - anyone recognise it and which song it is from?
