Some stuff about Plantar fasciitis and other injuries here.
ES- Noticed earlier my reply from your e mail didn't send, sorry
I will drop off the straps and paint tomorrow at track for you.
I'm doing 25 laps tomorrow fast, steady and so on, anyone fancy joining me I'll be starting about 6.45.
Got my hospital appointment today, end of January.....great!!
J8 - You might (not) want to read this
One of my projects at work is the development of a new device to test for Atrial Fribrillation. I could bring the prototype to track if you are interested.
Hows this for bad luck. Was out on my own last night doing a steady 9 miles when a big old dead tree fell on me, bashed me on the head, knocked me over and then I was pinned to the pavement underneath some branches. Passing motorists stopped and pulled the branches off me and helped me up. Prised out some lumps of wood from my scalp as I trotted home. Didnt get knocked out or feel sick but have a very sore head and headache today. Bad karma or what.
JMC--Yeah, thanks for posting that!
SW--Bloody hell, sorry to hear about that, hope the headache clears up soon. When did you twig something was wrong? Have you made a note of it in your log book? etc, etc.
SW - That sounds like a very lucky escape.
GBM/J8/ anyone else - any run planned for Sat a.m ? I'm probably looking to do no more than 14 or 11 + park run at the moment.
JMC- Interesting article, anybody want to buy some new trainers
FOAR - Meeting GBM at Rose Hill again, then running to Woodbank to do the park run.
FOAR/Anyone--SATURDAY MORNING RUN! Same as last week- Meet at Rose Hill at 8am, run 5 miles to Woodbank Park, do Park Run, run back to Rose Hill then maybe a few miles on the MW. Looking to do about 16 miles.
Jonah - I've put a Course map on the facebook Event page.
Here's the info:
The start area will be at the cross roads of Wood Lane West/East/South/North, outside the Miners Arms. The finish area will be on the Canal path just before the kissing gate, next to the Lyme Breeze.
Route: Starting from the Miners Arms – Wood Ln Sth – Schoolfold Lane – Macclesfield Canal – Hole House CP – Middlewood Way – Coppice CP – Shrigley Rd – Hagg Farm path – Macclesfield Canal
Hope you can make it.
SW-lucky escape, hope you're ok.
J8-keep an open mind, i think part of the BHF report is based on the Scandinavian study of ultra running over the last 20 years and the affect of long distance on the heart, still it's good for the manufacturers of pacemakers.
TB - since you're probably the only one on this thread older than I am, I hope that your comments aren't just wishful thinking. Scary article.
With possible PF, falling trees (hope you're OK SW - could have been so much worse) and now increased mortality rates for older runners, I might give this up and take up smoking and drinking.....
Its a good job I am hefty and have a big thick skull - if I was a delicate little thing it would have been worse. Was a bit of a shock though - one minute trotting along on autopilot thinking about what I was going to have for my dinner and next lying under a tree with a sore head.
Damn trees - some clever arse at work has already started calling me Twiggy.
BB-you may be older than most of the threadites, but you look and run like one of the youngest, it's certainly not wishful thinking, i took more than a passing interest, when the fellrunner i regularly train with developed a problem, i'll elaborate when i next see you but i think life's a balance (hence the extra rest day)
SW-thank goodness for having a thick skull
Interesting article JMC I'd be interested to hear about your test sometime. I always thought I'd be ok if I stayed below 50% of NI's mileage.
See you all at Wythenshawe Park.
But according to this article, running for an hour per day is fine
Does JMC's study include that old chestnut of being struck by a tree like SW? What a lucky escape you had.
Mort I gave the money for the 4V to J8 last night who is going to give it to GBM who is going to give it to you. If you don't get the £20 then blame them.
J8, fyi splits were 6:23; 6:14; 6:11; 6:18; 6:15 and 6:24. I think the differences are because 4 laps in lane 2/3 is more than a mile so some of my these mile splits would have had more slow than fast. Nonetheless good effort!
Quite an impressive range of running routes on my Garmin this week. Oslo, London Docklands and finally Stockport Harriers track. I'm afraid it won't include Wythenshawe Park however - sorry JMC.
