Perhaps of limited value. I had a pretty sparky session on Thursday, but then had to stop on Friday because of L low back and R thigh discomfort. A circuitous road back. I will be more judicious on trying to ramp up. Not sure if I will try again today. If I do it will be something quite gingerly.

Anyway, good to see you back. I was wondering what had become of you.

....3000 M with 4 x 15 stroke pickups. Pickups at an average of 1:54. 1:50, 1:45, 1:43. Pretty strenuous....

Well no wonder! That's some pretty stiff stuff in my book. But good for you for feeling that 'sparky.' I admire your unwillingness to accept long, slow pieces as I do. You always seem to spark them up with bursts. I should have the same discipline.

Thanks for the welcome back. It feels good to have done the short workout, despite lingering congestion. Hope you suffer no ill effects from Thursday's session. And that we both do well in January.
