      I think the Asian person is just hanging out in the same spot. Nice looping.

      It is seriously eerie, Steve. You know how, in an old computer game, when you go into the woods and there's a wizard or something that approaches you at the same spot every time? It's like that.

    good day 270 00:12:00

    Hot hundred planks plus physio exercises. No hoops tonight! No catch-up exercises! I did do some minimal weights and some floor exercises but have to do more.

  7. I was looking for a little 5k race for the weekend, just idly browsing around, and found three I'm trying to decide about... and found that the Yukon Marathon is this weekend! Wow, I wonder wh... read more

      Found it in the running mag... they say it has some extreme elevation changes and is a challenging wilderness marathon! And is sold out. Not that I'm ready anyhow.

      Thanks so much, Ines! It sometimes seems to be taking forever but things are definitely on the mend. I was really pleased to see your run today btw, very good to see that after what you've been through!

    I forgot to post this earlier, I walked the treadmill as an easy day workout this morning.

  13. I've suspended my hot hundred streak (planks) as I've just been way too busy and tired. Planning to resume the battle Tues/Wed.

      Robert, they have been slowly, slowly improving over the past year but that doesn't mean they're well, just that they're not as bad. Thanks for the thought, though!

      Yes, it was great. They provide BBQ, there are showers, and it's a lovely golf course with a really nice clubhouse etc. Alas, the developers are edging up to the course now, having devoured two other golf courses in the area, and soon all you'll see is humungous monster homes edging the course, what a shame.

    Hot Hundred Planks only tonight (front, rear and sides). I don't want to risk my knee with the hoops (it's pretty strenuous whipping your hips about, frankly.) Good night!

  18. I just calculated that I've run/walked 418 furlongs/fortnight in the previous two weeks. Just in case anyone wondered. Sounds like a lot more, doesn't it?
