The official photographers this week were Richard Carter and Pete Gibson. Plus, as always, Nicki was armed with her camera, you'll see their stunning works are brightening up the blog - Thanks!

I have been running with Mrs7t for the first kilometre or so, but this week I felt that the hamstring felt good enough for me to up the pace. So after much apologising I left the wife to run her own race while I went off in search of the answer to the question (the question being - How is the hamstring recovery going?).

By this point I had begun to warm up. I thought about removing my hat but decided to leave it in place.

By now my head was really hot so I whipped off the hat. I felt much better.

Nicki took care of Matilda whilst we ran, she even briefly fell asleep on her. Bearing in mind the amount of times she has slept on me is still in single figures, it is quite something. After being re-united with Lime we huddled in the near freezing conditions and we waited for Mrs7t to come into sight. Then we saw her on the far side of the downs. She was running, then a little walking, then running - right up to the final straight. We cheered and clapped as she sailed past us to finish her 5th parkrun.
