Well Coach Alan is still in hospital - not sure how long for but he has been told he can't drive for 4 weeks, and (needless to say), no running for the same length of time :-(

Oh no I've missed what's happened to coach Alan too AL?

I *can* reveal two pieces of good news in the Daisy family. Some months ago a routine eye test suggested something very worrying for son 1. His hospital appointment was cancelled at the last minute and rescheduled for today (over 2 months later!!) Anyway the excellent news is that all is clear and possibly the equipment (which found repeat scary results) was actually faulty! You csn imagine out relief.
Secondly, son2 has been promoted at work :-)

It's so good to have some good news after a trying week or two!

Oh and I did 10 squats - you should have heard my joints creak! :-O

I can't remember now if I put it on here or in my blog - Alan finished, but had a bad patch at mile 24, kept going but pretty much collapsed at the end - his heart rate plummeted to 24 so they sent him to St Thomas' - he's still there this morning but sitting up and looking ok (all things considered).

About This Thread

Welcome to the 700 miles in 2017 thread, everybody welcome :-)

The thread motto is:

'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles of either you or the spot you reached the target or both if you want to. And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed and sometimes even some running is talked about.

Happy running :-)
