FLNFT resonates with me.
WP - hope your shoulder frees up soon - I recall the pain of shoulder injury and it's not nice.

Nutso Lazytoad!
Good to see some activity in here :) I hope we are well and coping with whatever stage of madness your local area is in!
I am going for a run today! Yep you heard me right a run, might not be pretty though!

I dund'd the Dr. 5k ... I'd say that 'I walked it!' and I did, but it wasn't too easy a 'walked it!' and it's forced a bit of an easy day today 😱

Helegant - I have had it since March, the pain had subsided but unfortunately it has returned. Steroid injection tomorrow so will see how it is after that - hopefully I can get a bit more mobility back in my arm.

Hope you had a good run Nutso.

Well done decorum. You did better than me as I was a DNS due to an unplanned trip to Suffolk to sort my parents out who are struggling with my Mum's Alzheimer's and thought my Dad was going to harm her - I do needed the walk after a 3.5 hour drive but by the time I had called Mum down I had nothing left in the tank for me.

I should have been doing the first part of the Downlink as a walk this weekend. Hopefully next weekend now.

Have a good week everyone.

(hugs) Sometimes the times we need to get in a bit of green and/or airy are the times when we've pushed past empty ☹

Thanks decorum, hugs back.

As my Brighton marathon has now been deferred to September I have made the decision to tick off the Downslink next Summer as part of my marathon training - at least I will have more daylight and hopefully better weather - plus I am emotionally and physically tired after making lots of calls this week trying to get advice and support. But never fear, I still have 10 miles to tick off so will be out in the fresh air and viewing some greenery this weekend :-)

I managed to get past my 700 this week and now aiming to improve on last year's 800. This next week (the last week thank goodness) of run the sum and then I will cut back down again.

Why do we give ourselves such challenges :-)

Green time is good time ... other than on 31 October, when it could mean a Zombie's chasing you 😉 [Vegan Zombie shuffles off mumbling 'Grains! .... GRAAAINS!!!']

Good news and good running, Lip Gloss 🏁
