We went out to lunch with an ex neighbour to catch up on local news and her news from the dark side. She now lives in Latham but sees the light every day as she still works down this way. She is looking great now as only a few months ago she had a heart attack. Years of built up plaque had started to cause pains in the chest. Luckily her sister insisted she go to hospital to get checked out.
So after lunch, I had enough time to go for a short run down through Bonython to spend 6 minutes standing in the cool water at Pine Is, then get back to work.
Speaking to Kelley at Sunday's handicap, she is keen to do SFT in March next year. At the moment she has hamstring and sciatic problems. So Kelley joins the SFT training group with other's also carrying injuries or getting over them. I just hope they don't break down again as the training necessary to get to the start line is challenging.
Unless you use Ewen as your coach in which case it's easy. The week after is no fun!!
Good to see CJ at the handicap, on the comeback also with SFT as a goal. Also have softshoeshuffle almost at a return to running stage. The good part is they all have 4 months to get ready. Best to get some solid training done before Christmas, rebuild the base before the hills and mountain work start in the new year. Good luck!!
Me, on the injury front, I'm fine, ready to go again.
