Thanks for the ascent/descent data Alwyn, some of us were wondering just how much there was! Somewhat explains my calfs for the last two days! I doubt I'll ever race a harder course.

HMM we need to know - was your race number specially selected or pure fluke?

Who is doing a Parkun in the morning?

Not me cnr Rugby duties I'm afraid. JP - the number was reserved and I was also no.40 in 2012 ROTG and quite a few of the other races I did. Great way to finish off the year especially having the whole family at the finish line handing out my medal, drink etc. The race was a non event for me - the 10 races in December with four in the last 6 days had left me zonked. I was so tired at one point I was expecting the ambutran boys to pass me. To be fair I think my granny could have beat me around that course on Tuesday lol

Great running on here and I heard NoPain get a mention on MT - intervals on Christmas Day - I love it Great to see Mark, Alwynn, DS and other forumites on NYD.

I've enjoyed running twice since NYD and its great to be back into a regular training routine after a years break. Roll on The Grizzly and VLM.

I've not run in near 3 weeks but am toying with the idea of jogging round a parkrun tomorrow. May try a new one.

The Falls Parkrun is a beast TG.
04/01/2013 at 19:45

Going to go and spectate tomorrow at the Ecos, hope some of the quicker boys/girls are there. Will definitely try Portrush when the injury clears up, like the beach idea!

Happy New Year everyone!  It's been a while since I've been on here so lots to catch up on.  Sadly still no running for me .  My last run was on 31st August when I felt a horrible 'ping' and my knee has been sore every since.  Not constantly though, just when I walk uphill, downhill, down steps, cross my legs, bend down, cycle or move suddenly.  The rest of the time it feels okay, but not okay enough to attempt to run on it.

I've managed to keep involved in the running scene though - not least at the Waterworks parkrun each Saturday morning and managed to volunteer at over 80 events in 2012 which has kept me in touch with a lot of the forumites on here.  There are a few of you that I haven't seen for a while though, so hope you're all well.

Martin, I was at the Race around the Griddle doing the registration and results but didn't get a chance to say Hi to you.  I would have also said hello to your son at the Waterworks this morning if I had known.

Hope to catch up with you all soon.

Howmanyminutes yep that was me getting a mention out and back before Santa had made his rounds, will get up and do the Ecos park run again soon also fancy a run up the beach at Portrush some time soon.
Mags hope the knee gets sorted soon.
05/01/2013 at 18:40
