This 75 year old up date post

If there are any of the older people still reading the posts of the new ones as I do this is an update of Barry, he has finished his radiotherapy. Well pleased with myself, I have only missed a couple of runs while Barry has been having his radiotherapy and today was his last session, 7and a half weeks gone so quickly. Should have the results on the 11th Feb when we see the oncologist . So the plan now, a few days rest and he wants to start C2k5 again at the weekend, so we will go out together again, ah
