Thanks for your encouragement after my post of the awful w8r3 earlier in the week. Gave myself 2 days' rest then did w9r1 this morning. I decided to do the new route that I had found so difficult earlier in the week, and it was ok. Last time it felt like my arms and legs didn't belong to me - they just couldn't co-ordinate with each other. Today was much better. just 2 to go!!!
