Back on the road

A small step for mankind, a huge step forward for myself.  I finally go back to running today (yes in all this heat), not very far but definitely a start.  Encouraged by this I shall be stepping up my Saturday walk from the Lower Barn on Saturday and will hopefully be able to run part of it.  If anyone is planning a UTUP  I will be there at 8.30 just to be sociable and say hello but if there are no indications  I will start at a time to suit myself.

Thanks to all who have expressed concern and interest in my condition, which is as yet undiagnosed. Tests are ongoing.

Slip sliding away

Which is one way of describing my running in 2017. First it was a hamstring at the end of January, which meant February was a write off, and now I have broken my wrist and am looking at at least 4 weeks in a plaster cast.
My own fault really. Living round here, I ought to know that wet limestone and fell shoes don't mix. I instinctively put my hand out to save myself and my wrist bent at an angle it wasn't designed to go.
