    Over 20 mins for last 3 days.

    Started jogging and biking again.

    Swimming in a chilly pool helps the muscles.

    Trev,

    Don't leave it until your next holiday. Make time in your daily routine at home. You can't beat fresh air and excercise to exorcise 'the black dog'.
    Just been to the Lancaster Park Run this morning, everyone is so upbeat in the cafe afterwards.
    Great thing about Park Run is that it is not performance orientated; OK, they give you a time but everyone just respects one another for turning up and having a go, no matter how fast or slow.
    I'm hoping to get my son along to the Morecambe Park Run when it kicks off ..... he's pretty low at the moment.

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Ah, so that's why everyone was so worried about me when they saw me lying on the ground, totally knackered, near the finish of this morning's Dishley parkrun.

    Good effort Anthony ..... you can make it whatever you want it to be ....... you were obviously after a P.B!

    Actually I recorded a P.W.; which I blame on this being only my third run since a month's layoff with injury. But I managed to maintain my unbeaten record (in three parkruns) as first M60-64 finisher.

    I find that running can cause back problems, especially if inadequate footwear is worn.

    After suffering from a bad back, I started swimming 3 times per week, and increased my intake of green tea and anti-inflammatory herbs.

    Pretty much cured it.
