Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

It might be worth a go Dio x I’ve already walked more than I should as a result of taking the wrong bag with me.
Rosehip did you find massages helped? There is something twitchy around the back of my knee that really doesn’t help. I’m wondering about acupuncture and massage again but only because I fear tomorrow’s ultrasound review will show nothing and the only positive and helpful action I seem to be able to do is to avoid exercising :-(

Morning. Good luck for a good outcome tomorrow Dipps.

Gloomy day here but at least the club run won't get drenched like we did last week.

Seren - hoping the ultrasound will reveal some helpful information.

Not so much a Senior Moment as as inadequate explanation. I was intending to refer to the graph which shows a straight grey line running from 0 on 1st January to 400 on the 31st December; and the wiggly red line that meanders along with it. Anyhow, all bunting is now bundled up and put away until next needed.
And I did a chilly little 2 miles this morning, which has resulted in my still being at +0% and still with a heart.

The did a 2-hour stint in Tesco's porch with 2 other people, helping with the Foodbank collection.

Snake belly day, Dio? "On thy belly shalt thou go and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life"? Or some entirely different snake?

Got something to say?

About This Thread

Maintained by Serendippily
Welcome to the 700 miles in 2019 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 where you reached the target or both if you want to. Extra points for bins :-) And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed, sometimes even running.
