Apologies for the delay ... went to see the specialist a couple of weeks ago and the news came through that everything is good.
About time too. No more operations or hospital visits needed ... until next time. Hopefully many years into the future. Strangely though, I like hospitals. Always have. Maybe it's the community spirit and camaraderie that exists in the wards. Like one big family all striving for the same goal ...
hmmm ... like ultra running perhaps.
OK, let's get Christmas and New Year out of the way then I can begin training again. As mentioned earlier I have been running (shhh !!!) and doing one or two bits and pieces indoors to keep fit but nothing approaching what anyone would call proper training.
The scheduled date for switching from running to training is Sunday 12 January and the target race in the Tooting Bec (London) 24 hr race on 20/21 September.
So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone who reads this ... and the RUNNING blog will resume in a few weeks time.
