Can I join the sightseers? I'll bring Wine Gums for everyone

You can't buy your running buddies, Weedy...besides, I don't like winegums

Eggy - if you are still horizontal, might as watch the Harry Potter films. They're excellent

No worries Yer Maj, I might not even make it unless I can get to the bottom of what's wrong soon enough to start getting my long runs in.

Weedy - How are you feeling after the crash?

Dannirr - Superbowl watching for me tonight.

Eggy - Super Bowl? Superbowl? Why? I don't even watch it and I'm here . Ok, I do watch the half time show if I have nothing else to do, and the commercials on the Internet the next day. Give me rugby any day. My son is having a Super Bowl party tonight - about 20 kids aged 16-17 for a game starting at 7pm and going to about 11 pm, all on a school night! Chicken wings and pizza have been ordered by Mrs D, which just means the place will stink of fried food! Can you tell I am not a fan ?

RR - I forgot to thank you for the confirmation of the weather for the Goofy. I wasn't sure anyone had heard me

Okay thanks Eggy. Just faffing on back and forth with the garage and insurance company now...

03/02/2013 at 21:35

okay, so weedy's in too.  I'm not above bribery.  Although, I hope you don't have to join us weedy and get yourself sorted out.

Dannirr - I'm the exact opposite. I hate rugby, but love American football. Been watching it since the early 80's the days of Marino, Montana and Elway. That superbowl party sounds awesome to me.

Hate rugby???

Wash your mouth out....

Weedy - not good....I must have missed something - what's going on for you??

03/02/2013 at 22:11
Weedy. No need to count yourself out yet just because you you haven't got your long runs in. You've still got time.
But I do like wine gums

Cheers Sal, Orbutt

Yer Maj - You're gonna wish you hadn't asked, but here goes... Remembrance Day run last year felt fine and I got a PB, but was limping by the end of the day with pain in my right knee. Me and physio figured it's ITB, so I've been doing stretches and exercises since and building my runs back up.

It's been at the back of my mind that my gait must have changed somehow as I've never had ITB bother before. Couple of weeks ago I had a brainwave that the problem started six weeks after I began using a new orthotic, so I went back to my old ones as a test. Hey presto, problem cleared up instantly, champagne, celebrations etc etc. Altho problems I had with pinched nerves in my feet from the old orthics are back. Then on Friday I woke up about 3am with a pain on both sides of my left achilles. Can't work out what's caused it as I didn't run on Thursday and I'm still limping three days later with no sign of improvement.

So, do I go back to the new othotics and put up with pain in the right knee? Or do I stick with the old orthotics and put up with numbness in my toes when I run (assuming the achilles pain clears)? Or go to the podiatrist and try an even newer set of orthotics? Or give minimalist running a shot and see what happens? Or saw my legs off?

If I can't figure out what the solution is soon, I'm not going to have enough time left to train properly.

Podiatrist I reckon??

03/02/2013 at 22:37
Weedy - That sounds hellish. Hope you find a solution.
03/02/2013 at 23:19

Weedy - you sound just like me pre-minimalist.  I think you are a perfect candidate for the switch, but of course the usual warning applies - take it very, very slowly. You cannot do it before Paris.

03/02/2013 at 23:20
Good luck sorting that out Weedy.

There's not many sports I don't like. But cricket and American Football are right up there. Sorry Eggy..
03/02/2013 at 23:34

Come on Simon, cricket's not even a sport!

I'd use rugby and cricket as the two I really don't like. Come on the Ravens (49ers will win).

Eggy - that predictions not looking too good at half time....

04/02/2013 at 01:01

It's not, but there's a long way to go. They were 17 down against the Falcons and came through. Kaepernick needs to forget he's playing in a superbowl and relax and play his game or else it's over for the 49ers. Why couldn't he have bottled it against my beloved Packers.
