Probably in M's case I'm hoping if selected to do the BMAF relays again, had you had any thoughts?
Now i've fought through the snow, my next objective is to sort this "copy and paste" problem
TB - If Stockport enters a team for BMAF, I am up for it. Would also be good to see a VM45-54 team this year as well.
You're making a habit of driving over the Pennines in the snow this winter. Good thing you had your IAM training.....
I will pass on your good wishes to the patient BB and TB. Dressing has now come off his knee so he needs to apply ice to reduce swelling. He was asking for a bell to ring to let me know when he wants something fetching for him or his cushions plumping or the tv turned over. My bloomin mother has thoughtfully supplied him with part of a dogs squeaky toy that makes zoo noises when you shake it so I am now being summoned by monkeys squealing or lions roaring.
SW Hope he gets well soon. If he uses his squeaky toy to much Iam sure you can think of some where to put it
Does he llo anything like this clip? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbmbMSrsZVQ
mort - since it sounds like you're going to be hobbling round on crutches, maybe we should have a whip-round for you?head-to-head no handicap it is then! (but if you clock significantly quicker than 1:45 there'll be a steward's enquiry/drug test )
Daz- Hopefully the sign-shifter from last year will put in an appearance and create either a short cut for me or a long detour for you
Medical update for those interested, got signed off re the arm injury, all my fingers will go straight just time now for the muscle to heal. MGMT is off for a check up today, she has some vision but cant make out slopes which could make running tricky (anyone want to act as her guide? )
SW - I am still uncertain whether to have someone poke about in my knee, how did M manage to keep running, is he just harder than me or was it massive doses of painkillers?
If you are being serious TST I will be running Thursday if Management would like to go for a run? I can do any time between 9 and 2 and can provide references that I am a top girl guide!
VL - lol - yes, just like that.
TST - no painkillers, he is just bloody minded! He has to cut back his mileage considerably and stop running twice a day and if doing anything over ten miles or so it would hurt and he would be limping the day after. He was absolutely crippled after Mickleden Straddle - he had to walk down all the downhill bits and was in agony afterwards.
I've had an idea that will liven up the thread a bit: mithering people about the 12 stage road relays!
Northern 12 stage - Stanley Park, Blackpool on Sat 23rd March
National 12 stage - Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield on Sat 13th April
Any senior men want to run let me know please. We may be a bit depleted for the Northerns due to the clash with Wilmslow / World XC.
PPP - Wow! I will have to double my intended contribution...do you have a PayPal account? some people (e.g. me) could pay you directly that way
TB - FINALLY an excuse to put you on my ignore list!
Eric--Dovedale Dipper details are here and the entry form is here!
Anyone else up for this? Its an off road marathon in the Peak District in August. I'm not looking to race it, i'm just using it as a long run/day out as part of my Bullock Smithy training. I did it a few years ago and quite enjoyed it until i got lost.
