good news

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.

Great news Chris, I'm with you on the camaraderie of hospitals but I'd be happy never to need any more treatment.
Let the new year begin and our goals are realised.

Great News Chris.

All the best as you build up your training.

Great news Chris. And I'm occasionally in Tooting so you never know I might come and cheer you on; but not for 24-hours.

Thanks everyone for all your kind words.

Richard - often in Tootng eh ... would you like to crew for me ? Not for the full 24 hours but sharing the duties with Fay so you can both get some kip when needed (lightweights)

Only joking ... but if you could that would be great.
