  • Goodness AF! That is some mileage! Good for you  Sounds like a nice holiday.  Franny - that is great. Have never been on a machine like that and I think I would be a bit nervous. Jude, I know you are a vege so well done at coping with your hubby…
  • MC - good to hear you finally got off the M25 and home again safely. DJ - well done on your first parkrun!  And Franny on your fantastic time. I don't even bother to dream of speed like that. We went to the parkrun at Bovey Tracy which is held a…

  • Hi everyone! Thanks for missing me  MC tracked me down. Yes, I've been gone for months. Sorry for being AWOL. It was a rough summer. The operation in Feb went well, but seriously affected my body/energy levels and I could only run/walk 5k. Conside…

  • Welcome Tom! It's great to have you join us.  And it sounds like you are doing really well. Running 3 times a week is an excellent aim. It will quickly gain you fitness whilst giving enough rest days to avoid injury. If you want a bit of person-to-p…
