Hope everyone staying safe - Mrs WW and Fergus shielding must be really hard but hopefully does its job.

Getting a few runs in though think I'll need to just walk as I feel guilty if I don't get the wee one out for some fresh air in the pram. Got 2 weeks of mat leave left before I return to work....so if I don't run that's ok would rather spend time with E.

Sounds tough shift pattern and not easy areas to work in - hope you can get some rest riggsy.

Would also say that Abingdon would be thinking that lots of rescheduled marathons will also be happening at that time (hopefully) and therefore those that do a spring and autumn wouldn't be signing up.
