A Great Fitness Assessment

A Great Fitness Assessment Thumbnail

I spent much of the afternoon worrying. I'd been offered a full Bupa fitness assessment by the Great Run sponsors and I was fretting. I'd spent the last 3 weeks either in my sick bed or recovering from the effort of dragging myself out of it. I was not really in the mood for a [...]

Worrying Developments

Firstly you may have noticed that a whole load of ultrarunners have suddenly gatecrashed my blogroll and therefore my regular reading list.

Psychic Bloglines

What's happened to Technorati lately? I use it to keep track of recent posts in all my favourite blogs but it is just not playing fair anymore. It's telling me that a lot of my fellow bloggers haven't been active in over 100 days when I know for a fact that they've been at their [...]

Down with TramadoL****

At last I have found a plugin to deal with the mountains of spam winging its way to this blog. The latest update of Movable Type helped but spammers like TramadoL1234 kept getting through the spam filter. Repeatedly. Thankfully I was alerted to the cure all by That Canadian Girl.
