Multiple laps are good Spence, I get to slap you several times  

Sluggy you can pencil in the 19th if you like, the rest of us are going on the 16th  

Cheesy ... these  or failing that just google 'eccentric calf loading'  ... the mind well and truly boggles if you read that out of context!!  3 x 10 each foot twice a day, so far so good.  It worked for a torn achilles a few years back and the more I read the more these seem to be reccommended above all else for lower leg/foot issues

I swam for an hour today, not sure how far, its nice to swim sometimes without keeping count but I suspect around the 3k mark .. nice n easy

FGO went out with a spring in his step this morning especially when he saw the pile of hay in the middle of the field of snow !

Lates for me today and tomorrow so a lovely 2am finish to look forwards to and hopefully no more effing snow to drive home in

Oh !

Well I'm game if you are

So who's in fro the half then....



Far Far


Me and my dad have just had that know the one...when he asks you to be his Power of Attorney.....

I'm glad we've had it. Of course I will, told him we now need to sit and discuss exactly want he wants cos I know it'll cause probs with my sister but as long as I know I'm doing wants he wants everyone else can sod off!!

And then I told him he better keep eating his greens cos I don't want him going doo lally tap in a nursing home spending my inheritance!!

It's only £18! For the half!

I'll do it if you will Spence - and everyone else of course 

13/02/2013 at 19:45
Well I think we'd be mad not to

A distance for everyone

And on a Saturday so we can stay over

It's sounding like a plan. Airfields might be flat but they're usually windy.

I'll have a note from matron, but I'll bring my bike.

Noggs, and a grand sight that will be;label=city-2608939-gb-aVphFwHdMQVVP5NzBFqrNQSM5010058420%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg;sid=b1b83dd4a164d43b5661c2448e043b8b;dcid=1;city=-2608939

Id be more worried about meeting aircraft ....

Could well be a plan still trying to get Roni on the forum, but she could cheer the rest of us on perhaps!

Thanks for those Meldy, will start, as thats an area I need to improve more.

just 9k tonight, wanted an easy ish run, but then complicated it by deciding to start working on faster cadence silly move ... underestimated just how much harder it is to go from my normal 75 up to 90, so after 5k I dropped back to 75 again with achy everything below the knee Oh well, still a nice run.

And .... only a few layers and no Tshirt tonight, and stayed WARM despite it only being 1deg. Result! thanks for the advice on that bit

cant decide wether to have a wine or not tonight, waddya reckon?

Cheesy ... drop the heel through the calf but sloooooowly, these are very slow actions to build the strength
If you have (and probably if you havent) got achilles issues then dont lift back up with the one leg, use both legs to return to 'neutral'

Warm?   I came to work in a snow storm with my North Face coat on

That link is supposed to be the Youth Hostel!

Mr Tubs might run, not sure about the half but pos the 10k. I will bring my Pom poms :0)

Bit of a rough couple of days but better now thank dog

Mr Tubs appears to be coming out of retirement, he's been offered a part time job with someone he really likes. I shall miss him but he's missed working more than he's let on. I need to get my arris into gear and finish my book! I've got notebooks and files full of writing, need to sort it all out. And bin it!

I have started packing for hols. Oskar keeps sitting in the suitcase. I feel very, very mean :0(

nope, any way, it's a nice looking hostel less than £18 per night, do a search on that site for hostels in Stratford (it even says it has somewhere to park  your bike Nogs
