weather in nottingham was superb on sat at 7.00am, and we had a great run. unfortunately hammerite was still in the land of nod and missed it all. the bluebells were in full bloom in all 4 woods that we went by, 13 great miles.

New to this, so sorry if ask stupid questions.

I had a pretty depressing 18 months where despite running virtually every day, I managed to gain a pound a month. It was a mix of poor diet and ‘lazy’ slow 4 milers.
Along came the lockdown and during the initial 2 weeks I milked my allotted 60 mins to rack up some good 6 milers, then kicked on...
