Right, enough hill chat. I've got a date with some chips n dips, and 2 slices of raspberry cheesecake.

My Varrucca file has turned up, anyone want to see some before and after shots?

I'm still reeling after that thread you linked from tritalk with the feet. No thanks.
08/08/2006 at 11:30
tsk, you are gonna have to toughen yourselves up sometimes guys, its a scary ole' world out there!
08/08/2006 at 11:32
That's as maybe, but it's all warm and fluffy in here. Duvets and hot cocoa for me, ta.

Feet is Lurkers thing - i would rather not see most peoples - even my own!!

I've already had a diagnosis from our 'Foot Queen' AND she wanted to see the photos, AND she gave me the number of 'Diamond deb'.

Thats the sort of commitment i like, NOT all this girly 'Duvetman' stuff.

I've seen that photo TMW and its definately harcore.

Mmmmm, feet. All my blisters have now hardened into callouses. The best thing I ever did for my tootsies was wearing boots every day since age 10. They're not pretty, but they're fairly indestructible.

How is everyone else doing with recovery? I've been taking it really easy ( out of 7 days rest), yet I was riding down to the shops for ice cream yesterday, and my legs were fecked. Do I need to get out and train again to restore some of the feeling into them?

(5 out of 7 days rest)

Recovery has gone ok, starting to feel a bit of enthusiasm about training. Legs feel ok had a couple of good leg massages which i'm sure helped.

Since TLD, i've swam 5 times, ran 3 times, biked a couple. Only short sessions.

Probably a good time to start getting a bit of structure back. Have you lined anything up to aim for? It helps to have a bit of focus to get you back into it.

My end of season oly got cancelled, so I'm pretty much in post race mode - getting all my recovery done and putting on a stone or 2. Next year I fancy focussing on short and fast, maybe some middle distance to do some strength work. I dunno.

I think it's a combination of laziness and an excuse to be lazy that's done it. I'm hoping that when I've given my knee time to get better, got a massage and am back out doing things for fun that I can start putting structure back in. I might target a few late races, and I've got a date with a hill race in November again.

I was going to say, aren't there any fell races or 10k, half marathons coming up later in the year.

I think i might pick a few for you to have a look at.

feck, feck, feckity feck (TM 2t) and boll*cks!

Ta haile. It's just a shame that the half mara in town hadn't been a couple of weeks later. I'll re-evaluate after I start up again and see where my head is at.

I've been thinking about norseman. In a few years, granted, but I've still been thinking about it...
