The Administrators and this amazing forum have always maintained that the hardest bit is getting out the door, so I am off.

Oh yes surprised myself alright.πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚

First run for 4 weeks.I am back in the 9-10 mins/ km band.Best ever 5k just in the 7-8 mins/ km band.

So I am sitting about wk4/wk5 in C25k.

Going to build up little and often to 3k and 5k and by keeping in the 8-9 min/ km band.I can always return to the tried and tested method if needs dictate.

Thank you all in this magnificent forum for who and what you are.

Back on duty indeed - though managed have managed a 6k and an intervals session this week and am hoping to complete a gentle long run tomorrow morning.

Think it will be difficult to motivate myself once the evening runs are in the dark.

Perhaps just not at this moment. Better get running again and keep coming to the forum for the motivational magic.

That is what does it for me. Only that.Count my blessings every day for this gift.

Love your country.Fond memories.

Had a week at the Invercargill smelter, many moons ago.

Had a little time at weekend to visit the Milford Sound and Queenstown.

Oh my what a gift.

Take care of you.

This is indeed a wonderful forum, love reading everyone’s stories, although I’m always 12 hours behind the news, when you mentioned Invercargill I giggled and thought of Mick Jagger who said on the Stones tour of 1966 that Invercargill was the aβ€”ehole of the world. Most unkind, possibly true then though. Invercargill a long way from your home?

Mick Jagger is a fool.Probably never done a real days work in his life.Can only talk a good game.But as a singing artist well let’s be kind.

What’s not to like about South Island, all of it.

I am a smelter boy from Kinlochleven. There is a book by Patrick McGill , Children of the dead end.

I am bias and view Invercargill differently.

Kinlochleven now has the largest indoor ice climb in the world, wonder if MJ has tried that or any of the many Munro’s in the West Highlands let alone the 3000 meter plus mountains in NZ.

We think in the UK 3000 feet is a mountain.πŸ€”

Even your sheep are twice the size of ours.πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Got to have a laugh the Lovely Lexi.

Take care of you.

I’ve always said Tbae that this forum is an education, thank you. The book you mention and the author more especially interest me. I have recently started my family tree and discovered that I have McGills from Donegal who became Magills when they emigrated to New Zealand who married more of my ancestors from Tyrone. Kinlochleven looks a beautiful place PS (MJ’s legs might be all right for prancing on stage, but they aint runners legs eh?) 🎸

I have some googling to do tomorrow.

Patrick McGill was a very clever man from Northern Ireland.Not sure , but maybe from Donegal.

My father was from NI and as countrymen back then stuck together especially away from home.

Tough times.πŸ€”πŸ™ˆ

Must do the same one day soon.

Hi Bev hope you are good.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŒŸ

I feel your motivational magic and that of the forum when I go.

Hey that’s kind.cannot even take a selfie.πŸ™ˆπŸ¦•

Got my plan to get back to where I was 4 weeks ago.

42k per week,for 3 weeks and 4th week 22k.

Got the final stone, the pot, to get off, without loss of muscle.11-7 is my target in around 2 monthsπŸ€”

Do not want to carry that if I can shift it.

With all that running and dumbells hope to tick the box.βœ…

I reckon in this morning’s assessment I am week4/wk5 of C25k.Perhaps not that catchup amount after 4 weeks not injured but not really running.

Going out now to just run 5 k at any pace and get round.

I am so pleased to be back running and feeling the power of this forum again.

I count my blessings everyday that I found it.

Take good care of you.

Need to catch up with your posts.

Is your badge being polished or have you got it safely away in your drawer.πŸ€”

Parkrun was great thanks . Garmin said I did a PB but parkrun stats didn’t, but it did take a long time for me to get to the start line today. It doesn’t worry me as I just like being there.

We did run as well as sort tokens today so got two ticks in 1 day.

Tbae, you're back! With a smashing garden no doubt πŸ˜„

Hi Jan,

hope you are all good.

Never ever received more encouragement and kindness from you and the motivational magic forum.

Thank you lovely Jan.

Surprised alright.πŸ€”πŸ˜‚.

In 4 weeks I am back at 47 mins for 5k. That was my time for the first one and only PARKRUN some 4-5 months ago.

Managed to get below 40 mins maybe 2 months ago.

All I can say at present, man with a planπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚, can’t even say all the gear and no idea,πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚, in fact it’s probably no to both those also.

Glad to be back here, going to enjoy it all.

The new multi tasking me.Upto two tasks on the go now.πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚.

That’s a start.

Take good care of you.
