Thank goodness you're sorted out, Spence.  I forget you're such a technohead, sue 

Good point about the swearing n meds coco cat but if you live where I do its not the first explanation that comes to mind! Your recovery sounds frustrating but well done for sticking with the fizz advice n not rushing into anything. 

Awwww, bless the GPO he has probably worked out you're abandoning him and decided to get your attention 

Enjoy GD duty, Noggs cos we know you do 

Dog walked, 3 miles plodded and chum to meet for cake. Looking good

I think i'm racing soon ...

Oooooo - supposed to race ironman are we?  I thought it was all about taking your time to get value for money with it being so bloomin' expensive......of course that's the only reason I was so slow at Outlaw......  

I have to get up now and deliver some relay team sheets to a club mate ready for Tuesday so I shall take my newly serviced and returned bike to check it's in working order.  A couple of weeks ago at the duathlon the gears were slipping so badly (almost every turn of the pedal when on the middle ring at the front - yes I know a triple - the shame of it ) I damn near got off and threw it in the bushes!!

Happy Saturdays one and all

Spence - I slipped and twisted dislocating my knee-cap and breaking a piece of cartilage and bone off.  I was on a business trip to Brazil at the time, and due to that, my leg was immobilized straight for 2 weeks which means the knee wouldn't bend properly again - scar tissue and muscle damage.  This happened last August and I've been having various types of physio since then.  I started with an amazing sports physio about 8 weeks ago and she has really been fantastic - she also said she could get me running again even though I gave it up a few years ago due to problems with my other knee.

Basically she says my problems are mainly style and strength - which can be sorted by training me to use the right muscles and investing time in strength and flexibility exercises.  I have over-developed quads and under-developed glutes and hip flexors. She says that running properly will not make the knees worse.  I won't ever be able to do more than 10K, but I would be very happy to get back to doing that distance a couple of times a week.

Yes hopefully Podds, only I now have to rely on someone else to do what I ask while I am away which historically seems to be in the too difficult box ...

*waves Coco off*

you lot have made me laff reading back.  Apart from Cheesy, hope he gets prickly heat

how old is the FGO Meldy?

This morning I ran 5miles in 56 mins.  had a change of tact today, using my app i've felt like I could run further without a walk break but never did because I always do what I'm told   so didnt use the app, decided to run slow (well slower than I usually do which is still slow anyway) and I virtually ran the whole route.  just had 1min walk break at the top of hills, and did 11mm.  Was very hard to keep my speed down, but it seemed to work    Pretty pleased anyway

then I went to work
