      Hey good to see you! Do you want to try another gentle one on Saturday, We're in Auckland for the weekend and are leaving way too early for me to run before we fly up there - I've got 6.5k and probably planning to run about 3ish?

  7. Week 2 of my calf recovery: It's going okay. Another week and I should be running again. Until then, I'm moping around being an idle so-and-so (and enjoying it).
