SARQ, you don't need an appointment do you?  Doctor just gives you a letter and you turn up.  That's how it worked for my toe x-ray a few weeks ago (maybe backs are different?). I must say that I am taking Glucosamine and my toe is feeling much better. Coincidence, placebo effect I don't know?

BHB-i take Glucosamine every day, helps with the knees, in fact i need all the help i can get.

SARQ- i know quite a few cyclists who do long mileage suffering with back pain and they don't even run.

Mort-i was inspired this morning in the gym, there's Diane on the treadmill

J8-good luck tomorrow.

BHB, for lumbar back pain, the doctor has to fax my details over and they contact me, which is a pain, as I would want to know when the appointment is quickly.

TB. The physio mentioned it's the increased marathon mileage probably caused it, because it started to be painfull in Early April, don't suppose cycling has helped though.

At least my achilees has had time to recover more.

Been discharged by Stepping Hill, large left ventricle but nothing to worry about,normal for a runner.

FOAR- I'm in   have a look on the Boston website, details on there.

Track tomorrow night 3 x 1600 if anyone wants to join me.

SARQ- bad news, sorry. Are you managing to cross train at all?

J8- good news all round!

PPP, cycling aggravates my back, swimming puts a strain on it too, running affects my achilees and back.

So I'm putting on weight rather quickly.

J8-good news

SARQ-not so good news, i couldn't run for 4 months then did re-hab. for 12 months, put on a stone in weight, but thankfully through managing the conditions, i'm nearly back to where i was 2 years ago, are you able to walk without pain, if so do this and it'll minimise the loss of fitness.

DAZ-useless piece of info. but i was talking to a running friend of R. Wilde today, apparently, around the time of LP, RW had broken the world 3000metre indoor record, this is what we're up against.

TB - I refer you to my post near the bottom of page 1696
surely you're not being selective about which posts you read/respond to?
(oh, and he set the 3k record in 1970, 7 years before LP)


19/09/2012 at 21:14

J8 - you are definitely not normal for a runner

19/09/2012 at 21:57


SARQ - Sounds painful.  Must be frustrating for you.

J8 - Great news about being discharged and Boston. They appear to have let me in too .

10K Sunday so going to push my weekend long run back until Tuesday or Wednesday.

SARQ--My back finally seems to be getting better after 2 years. I've had hardly any problems with it whilst running for the last 3 or 4 weeks. I've no idea why it has got better though as i've been forgetting/cba to do my exercises. Maybe running 70 miles a week is the answer. Anyway, get well soon. 

Jonah/Foar--Have you booked your heterosexual Boston hotel yet? 


20/09/2012 at 09:18

GBM- Yes booked the "Gilded Lily" honestly.

20/09/2012 at 12:32

Jonah8--Just been on the Gilded Lily's website and found a youtube link from a couple of blokes who stayed there before this years marathon. The hotel bar looks nice!

GBM - Can't play the clip on work PC but I'm guessing it may feature leather caps and moustaches ?

20/09/2012 at 13:21
FOAR_ is that wishful thinking?
20/09/2012 at 13:33

Shit!!!!!   Poacher has got a lot to answer for.

Foar-  correct

20/09/2012 at 13:43

GBM That reminds me of this.

20/09/2012 at 13:43

J8 - you should be careful with a dodgy ticker!
