Gary B Catching up: add 208.2 miles walking, 4.1 miles golf and 34.0 miles cycling, 246.3 overall. New total 30,327.1 miles
Bought myself a road bike during my mid-life crisis and cycle mainly at weekends. I ran a couple of marathons a long, long time ago and last year took up running again after an 8 year layoff. The running has been tough but now starting to make progress, running my first 10K event in 24 years in September 2012. Not a big fan of indoor training - I prefer fresh air on my face if possible.

Gary B Forgive me, it's been 7 1/2 months since my last posting and I have not participated in any sports activities since October. Normal winter squash didn't happen as my playing partner had an injury and then his wife said we were too old!!!!
Anyhow, I have given myself a good talking to and have been making progress this week.
