  1. FIT
    good Plank and Situps 00:07:00

    2 plank sessions, one set of sit ups... and the usual cryptic puzzles. Words of the day: orlop, ostend, onager (they must have raided the "o" pages of a dictionary) and accra.

  2. RUN
    good Easy Loop 5.6 km 00:37 10:37 pace

    A gentle jog around the medium loop with hill. Overcast, -3C, small snow flurries. I encountered a nice looking lady runner coming the other way on my back road loop, a nice surprise as I have only... read more

  3. RUN
    good Longish Run 11.2 km 01:20 11:29 pace

    A second attempt at a longer training run. Shoulder and knee were bad again, and the knee started to buckle on me at 10k. I'm still uncertain whether I could complete a half in a couple of wee... read more

      Great long run. Suppose you're licenced doc: would you allow your patient with such problems to run a HM?

      BTW: my wife will have stem cells procedure on both knees in a month. Her cartilage damage is level 3 and she is in early 50s. I doubt about the outcome but her doc has some patients with significant improvement of their knees problems.

    good Plank x 2 00:04:00

    Plank and puzzles. Words of the day, olefin, oriya, diabolo... I may be expanding my vocabulary but still resent that words are used that nobody would EVER think of, when reading the clues.

  5. RUN
    good Loop Plus Trail 5.6 km 00:38 10:55 pace

    Slow and easy run on the local loop after sleeping in and missing the parkrun! -12C, icy, with hazy sunlight. Knee and shoulder both lousy. Saw nobody about. Happy Saturday!

      Nice run! I guess everyone else was either at the parkrun or too wimpy to brave the -12!

  6. RUN
    good Gently Into The Chill 5.1 km 00:33 10:24 pace

    It was -10C "feels like -21C" when I overdressed and ventured out. The wind kicked up and so it was nasty in spots but mostly OK. There was enough snow to cushion my bad knee which had be... read more

      My mom (who's 91) has arthritis, and makes a point of going walking every day. She said she had an evaluation by the doctor who had told her about 12 years ago she needed a knee replacement (the other knee from my bad one btw). The doctor was amazed, she has not got any worse in 12 years. Just keep moving, but try to avoid excessive stress, and if you injure it, give it time to heal (reduce the forces on it).

    good Just The Plank x2 00:04:00

    Plank and puzzles... Word of the day is toccata, though there were unfair uses of such words as pinnacle, reuben and allays.

  8. RUN
    good Sun and Ice 5.6 km 00:35 10:03 pace

    The forecast 10 inches of snow fizzled to an ice storm last night, and not that much ice. It was mostly melted already when I got out, but I ran on the street because there were still black ice pat... read more

    good Plank x 2 00:04:00

    Didn't do situps, and didn't encounter any unusual words on the cryptic... shoulder was a bit better.

  10. RUN
    good Long Run Fail 8 km 00:50 10:03 pace

    I was planning a 15k training run but my bad shoulder and knee began to torture me at 6k and when something I ate yesterday joined in to the fun, I made myself go for 2km more and then quit. Debati... read more

  11. FIT
    good Plank x2 and Situps 00:08:00

    Two nights' plank whilst doing cryptic puzzles, plus situps. The words of the two days are, Assam, ambits and testator. I have indeed seen the last two of these used but did not know their def... read more

  12. RUN
    good Whitby Park Run 5 km 00:28 08:56 pace

    I was going to pace Wendy who was going about a 31 minute pace but she suddenly dropped back at 1km so I sped up and started overtaking all the people who had passed me. But I never made up the los... read more

    good Plank and Situps 00:08:00

    Two nights' planks, plus situps. My weight went up by almost 5lb (2.2kg) over the holidays, and it wasn't even from pigging out on holiday snacks, as I was alone over the holidays and thu... read more

  14. RUN
    good Medium Loop With Hill In Snow 5.6 km 00:40 11:29 pace

    There were still areas that hadn't been cleared of snow yet so I was able to stitch together my desired distance running on the snow! -3C, overcast, a nice morning. My feet were soaking wet in... read more

  15. RUN
    good Little Loop In Snow 1.7 km 00:11:00 10:24 pace

    The weather forecast was partly cloudy, so we had 6cm of partly cloudy so far and more coming down. I was worried they would plough the snow before I got up in the morning so I might miss out on ru... read more

    good Twin Planks 00:04:00

    Two nights' planks, reported together for efficiency. Word of the day, impi.

  17. RUN
    good Brooklin New Year's "Detoux" Run 5 km 00:27 08:43 pace

    This was icy in spots and my knee locked up painfully twice so I had to slow down. No official results anyway, just a clock at the finish line. I saw several friends and had a nice time in the pub ... read more

  18. RUN
    good New Year's Parkrun 5 km 00:28 09:00 pace

    An easy parkrun warmup for the Detoux later today... alas I thought that was at noon, it's at one, this means it will take up more of my day than I had planned to spend on it. Anyway, the Park... read more

    good Last Run of the Year 1.7 km 00:10:00 09:28 pace

    The freezing rain turned to just rain, 3C, so I went out for an easy refresher to finish 2018. Two races tomorrow! I was thinking of my year's highlights and they were all running related. The... read more

    good Plank x 2 00:04:00

    Just the usual, two days' planking. Word of the day is pinnace. They also used "spar" in an unfamiliar way.
