When I rub the side of the knee it appears to be soft tissue as opposed to the joint. It has got better since Saturday so hope it's just inflamed. We will see. Think it is ALS body saying I need a little rest. Have got two 15 mile runs, a 17 mile run and a 19 mile run done. I was hoping to do two more 20 s plus a fast half marathon. So we will see.

Hi all,

Back to work and back to reality!

ATM - I'll send you an email with some pictures. Let me know if the quality is good enough.

Race report from Malta is here. No splits yet as my Garmin is being stupid and not charging properly.

I'll catch up with everything later today... I have 500 emails to read

Well done, Emmy! It's really unforgiveable not to have enough medals at a Finish. I'm glad you got one...It's a nice one, too.

Emmy - Well done on completing another marathon. Although going on that report it's not going on my must do list!

its all about the Medal!

Well done Emmy for nailing another 26.2.  How long before you become a centurion?

I'm the same. I'm waiting for the response of the RD. If you do the half marathon - you'll have no problems as everything was there and fine. It's just if you're a 4hr + marathoner.

This was #10... so 90 to go I think 2015/2016 is "realistic"... but we'll see. I'm just trying to enjoy them

I cannot give you an idea of how hefty this medal is. It's so good it could be a weapon!

Had a very pleasant 10 mile bimble this morning, great collection of wildlife, squirrels, fox, jay and a buzzard

Someone mentioned foam rollers, I'm a keen user of them to get the niggles out, try to use it almost every day but it can be a bit of a pain! I've just upgraded to one of these beasts;

 It's called a 'Rumble Roller' and they're utterly BRUTAL! But, once you've got over the agony, got the hang of it, and any initial knots are rolled out, it's an ace piece of kit. If you use it correctly I honestly reckon it's nearly as good as a pro deep-tissue sports massage.

Downside is it cost £40, but then again it costs me £45 an hour for my physio! Also, they come in blue (standard) and black (extra firm). I had the black one to start with but had to take it back to exchange, the bugger gave me bruises!

Bedders - Welcome to the pain zone!

I think RS and RR use a similar instrument of torture. I like to liven it up with one of those and a tiger tail!

Think I have seen those in the Ann Summers Shop

26/02/2013 at 13:59

Aye, when I first saw it in Sweatshop my initial thought was; looks like a massive dildo! That's the 'shorter' version too, they do longer ones that measure about 2ft!

Forgot to say on my previous post, big thanks to ATM for her offer of insider info on the event; much appreciated!

I have definitely seen the inside of most the portaloos, Bedders...

F**k me Bedders that makes my OROD look like a walk in the park...

26/02/2013 at 15:13
That OROD business cracks me up Kate. I'm scared to use one in case it hurts

I saw that earlier... it's quite funny!

Oh it will hurt you.  If it doesn't hurt you're not doing it hard enough.  Or something...
