Hi all. Thank you for good wishes, Nessie and well done for getting out yet again.
Snowdon was yesterday morning - I absolutely loved every minute. Weather was perfect, though very cold for spectators and I've never felt so good for the full distance. It really is the best marathon in one of the most beautiful places in Britain.
I knocked 12 minutes off last year's time and got 3rd in my category. Really pleased but my smugness about how fantastic I felt yesterday( we were out drinking and carousing with friends until very late) got its comeback today. Despite a lovely long walk with dogs, I am in agony!!! Serves me right! Going to rub down tendons with ibuprofen gel and see if they improve. Horrible rainy day today but staying for few more days so up to Snowdon summit in the morning if weather improves( plus my legs).

Fran Fran Fran soooo very well done - U r amazing but so sorry to hear u suffering after all your effort. You really really must takecare of yourself xxxx

Hope your legs ok tomo xxxx

Nessie...Diolch! But honestly, don't underestimate what you do altogether! You are awesome. All the hard work with horses, and all the help you give to your family and friends!!!! Your confidence should be increasing as you put the miles (and hills) away. Good going when our weather gas been very mixed.
Anyone could get where I am as I am not a talented runner, just dogged and stubborn. Oh, and as I'm getting on, less female competition. Part of me was determined to prove the doubters who said it was so bad to run 2 close marathons, but it IS doable and sore legs just tell me I worked hard. Almost better already!

Lol good for u Fran. U Knock those doubters into a a cocked hat !!!!!
I must admit my Xtraining hasnt been good and my running lacking the effort i should have given. Been a bit aimless since Loch Ness - i will pick myself up and sort myself out asap!!!! Always feel inspired when i hear what u guys achieve on here and when i watch these runs on TV - all those wonderful people raising so much money for charity - amazing!!!!

Well hello everyone, I am so lax not chatting with you all and Ffran I am so sorry I didnt wish you luck for Snowdonia, well done to finish so well carrying injury!!! I remember when Eddie Izzard ran his Marathons. At first they where hard and he had lots of problems but the more he did the easier they got and his problems eased. Doing two races close together is never a problem as long as the training is good and the gap inbetween is handled correctly.

Nessie, we keep telling you that you do far more than most of us but in a different way, the energy you expell in a day would run a marathon!!!!!

Toby, take it easy coming back, nice and slow to ease your way back in.

Wel I am still not running and my knee has not gone down, I am trying rubbing Ibuptofen gel on to reduce the swelling and will see how it goes over the next day or two. I anm due to see Osteopath on Wednesday and depending on what she says I may have to see Dave Adler or get to the docs for a referral to specialist again. I need this sorted quickly now!!!!!!!!

28/10/2012 at 20:16
Seejay. Take good care of that knee. My boss, who had a similar experience to you, is also having to return to the hospital as his pain/swelling is back. You are wise enough to know what to do. Hope you get a favourable outcome.
29/10/2012 at 06:55
Seej what a shame for you but as Fran says you are sensible not to push it. Fingers, toes,eyes- everything crossed for a good outcome for you!!!!!! X

Very well done Fran, your achievements are as always enviable and you play down your obvious talent.  I watched with awe the S4C highlights show last night and would not attempt that race.

Sorry about your knee SEEJAY, hope it improves soon.

Hi Nessie, we both have some catching up to do. 

29/10/2012 at 14:38
Hi LBB good to hear from u again. We sure do!!!!!
Whats happening in your runs? Hows the family?

Lovely to hear from you LBB - thank you for compliment.
Just climbed Snowdon. No problem getting up there, -3 and snow in top. Thought we'd get the train down but they don't allow dogs. (!!!) Every step down was like toothache !!!!! Another chap in front of me was the same and explained to me he had ran a marathon on Saturday.
29/10/2012 at 20:22

LBB, very well put about Ffran, couldn't agree more, so modest about her achievements!!!! How are you these days, I see your cough has been playing up again!!!!

Ffran, thanks for the good wishes, I don't want to go back to hospital but if that's what it takes then so be it. At the moment the gel is making it not so uncomfortable but the swelling is still there, I am still hopeful it is muscular rather than cartilage, will see what Osteopath says on Wednesday!! I cant understand though why anyone would want to climb Snowdon a few days after running a Marathon!!!!!! Mental woman but so impressed!!!!!

Nessie, thanks for the good wishes, I will try to be sensible and set a good example to you all!!!!

I still havent decided about Llanelli yet as I am not running, I would love to do it as part of my marathon training but dont want to enter and find I cant run it!!!!!

Unfortunately the cough has come back with avengance, meaning I cant run at the pace I want to and also preventing any significant distance.  I am still hoping to do Benidorm Half end November though.

Mrs LBB is running London and after being on a bit of a downer due to stress is back on her feet again and making amazing progress.  I took her out for 8 on sunday and she ran slowly but very well.


30/10/2012 at 10:55
Ah LBB so sorry to hear cough is slowing you up. Give Mrs LBB all my best wishes for London. An 8 miler is brill - i havet done that for a long time. Shes doing so well. X
I ran 40 mins this morn early but had such a bad night last night and felt ill yesterday it really showed in the run!!!!
Nea mind hey? As HG says - no run is a bad run!!!!! Lol

Thanks Ness and well done on your run, are you doing the Christmans Cracker at Weston ?

30/10/2012 at 15:26
No i missed entering and its closed now.
30/10/2012 at 22:18

LBB, sorry to hear that, you have been suffering with this for some time now, shame you cant get it sorted permanently. Hopefully the warmer weather in Benidorm might make it easier for you!! Best of luck with it and at east you are still running!!! Good luck to Mrs LBB, hopefully I will meet you both during training if you are running the cycle path!!

Nessie, shame you had a bad night, was it your IBS again??

I just got my outfit for Cracker, a group of us from the club are running as Elfs, need to try it on to see how it fits!!!

Just been trawling back through the posts since my last visit and it looks like there have been mixed fortunes. We didn't manage a run last week, due to many reasons, but got out last night. I managed 3½ miles with no problems whatsoever, my better half however ran 3 miles, but her hip is playing up again. I think it's bursitis,but I do think we may need to see a sports physio to get a professional opinion.

Hoping to both run again tomorrow and see how things are.

01/11/2012 at 22:21

Chris, glad you had a good run, seems its only the odd one you get to enjoy!!!!! I hope, mrs Chris gets sorted. If I remember you dont live in Bristol which is a shame as I know an excellant sports physio, he comes highly recommended by me and LBB!!!!

Well I have just been to the docs and she has diagnosed fluid on the knee and prescribed anti-inflammatories so fingers crossed they sort the problem!!!!! What a miserable night tonight, wrap up warm its like winter out there!!!!

02/11/2012 at 08:24

Hi SeeJay.......Well I ran again last night, and guess what, I really enjoyed it again  Ran 4 miles and no problems whatsoever. Mrs Chris, or Lisa, as she prefers to be called decided to rest, but says her hip feels better. She plans on running 4 miles on Sunday and we'll see how she is after that. We live out in Hallatrow (not sure if you know the area) but if necessary we'll find a sports physio,

Sorry to hear about your knee, but I'm afraid these injuries do flare up from time to time. I can't really remember the last sustained injury-free period I had, but I remain thankful that I can still run. Have a good weekend everyone

02/11/2012 at 15:24
Well, hope you guys get some relief from your injuries. You know that listening to your body is as important as listening to medical advice. Believe it or not, I HAVE laid off when I really felt it ill advised to run but often feel that GPs are over cautious and when all said and done, can only give general advice. You knew what was the issue, Seejay, surely what is more relevant is why it's happened??? Did she offer any insight into what's going on with your knee? Get back if things don't settle soon x
