Morning all, out by 5.15 for a 6 miler, the only other living organisms I saw were my cat who joined me out of the door, and a few eyes staring, from the bushes on the trail not the houses. Valis hope all is well with you today.  Morning Birky and Kate.  PSC agree you JFDI, too much thinking at that time of the morning would hurt. MC, that is chafing, ouch.  Tommygun impressed with the way you might be dropping off your mum's xmas pressies this year.

Hi all

Thanks for the well wishes, appreciated. short story went to A&E 5hours x-ray blood test we cant see anything must be viral(lol) go home . I'm still in fair bit of pain saw a gp today( not mine though) got some reasonable pain killers the link below is a post of mine on a website which says a bit more about previous incidents my post is about the tenth and not one of the worst by far any one interested they all make for quite a read and saves me typing out again here though there has been a couple of things since.


At best a week no running at worst maybe 3 and look to cancel c2c and tp 100

Thanks again now time for meds and the world of numb.

valis - gosh that sounds nasty, look after yourself and go back to a&e if it gets worse and be insistent - or get someone else to be insistent on your behalf. Fingers crossed you are back to normal soon

Hi all,

Haven't done any long distance runs recently. I've been working on my sprint and strength training, I can now do 100m in 12.3 seconds. My aim is to be doing it in 11 seconds by May! 

10/10/2012 at 17:53

Well I didn't make it out for a SOC run today but the good thing was that I was wide awake and definitely wasn't too tired.  I just got lazy

Hopefully tomorrow morning I'll get it sorted.

It sort of helped to think of everyone else going to bed early-ish and getting up early.  Although I wasn't that tired last night so I think it was after 11pm before I nodded off.

valis: Good to see you're okay

Back later.

JF50: A very belated morning to you mate

10/10/2012 at 18:24

5:30; And a belated well done to you mate.

10/10/2012 at 18:52

Craigerrs, you may run the 100m in an astonishing 12 seconds, but I run 420 times further  than you

Goodness knows how many more times PSC, Kate and Valis run.... Get well soon Valis, those runs you have in mind would make me ill just thinking about them!

Birky we let a goal in after 13 secs yesterday  

 Well done  on your soc JF.

I might be a bit of a soc cheat recently as I've had so many races the early morning runs have become more infrequent.

just realised the link does not work so here is a copy and paste of it

Hi I think I have been lucky so far I have only had two collapses/spontaneous pneumothorax so far the first came 5 years ago . It was a month after a bike crash I had a 25% collapse on my right side. I was told I fitted the profile tall skinny and it might happen again ,over the last 5 years i have been to hospital three times when I had the same symptoms only to be told there was nothing wrong and given dirty looks by the doctors as if I was wasting their time.
last may I had bad pains on my left side and the same thing went to a&e and told nothing wrong go home. then two weeks ago at work real bad pain on my left side i was at work and it was about 11.30 am. I finished my day at work as I thought if I went to a& e I would get the same dirty looks as before.
When I got home My girlfriend called an ambulance straight away as she said I looked grey and was in so much pain.
the paramedic that turned up listened to my chest took my pulse and said I sounded fine but as I was in so much pain they would take me in to get checked over. In the ambulance he said that his monitors showed that I had plenty of oxygen in my blood and was told it could not be a collapsed lung as I had suggested he did not believe I was a smoker due to the readings he was getting "no your oxygen levels are far too high".
When we got to hospital he told the nurse I was in pain but it could not be a collapse.
Within a couple minutes she had listened to my chest got a doctor and was calling for an x-ray The doctor asked me after the x -ray when the pain had started it was now 7.30 pm when I told her she looked stunned she then informed me I had a 70% collapse on my left side after that I have to say the treatment i received was great and i returned to work after a week I do not get sick pay or I might of had a couple of weeks off however I think the longer you stay idle the harder it is to get back to normal.
However I have got to face facts and %'s give up the fags and hope it does not happen again.
What gets me is on the times I went to hospital and was told there was nothing wrong I really do belive that I had small collapse of around the 10% to 15% and after each of those times it took around a week to three weeks before the pain eased up I know there is little they can do if the x-ray does not show up anything however being fobbed off with muscle strain or viral infection is an insult after enduring the pain and experience that tells us something different.
The doctor said that I would get sent an appointment to see a chest specialist in around 4 weeks they told me that 5 years ago and I still waiting for that one.

Ooh lots of pain and suffering on this thread at the moment.  Hope everyone feels better soon.  Valis - take care, that does not sound like something to be messing about with.  Definitely get back to the doctors if you're still in pain.  Mathschick - ouch to the chafing! Bet that will be sore for a while.

Well......my running gear is laid out and ready, headtorch and hi vis gear on the dresser and alarm set for 5am with a very annoying noise and will be left by the bedroom door........

resting here...

Saw Joan Armatrading last night live in Canterbury.  A superb evening with some really talented local artists supporting.

Valis, scary....  take care.

5:30.. LOL at your 420x!

11/10/2012 at 07:55


7 slow miles, didn't want to get out of bed but it was nice out there

valis, hope you are feeling better today

11/10/2012 at 08:24

Morning all - 10 miles, normally 5 at tempo but just couldn't get my legs to move, this bodes very badly for Abingdon and future races against 5.30am who is still improving as I slow down. TG, nice and speedy.MC, how's the chafing, industrial quantities of body glide recommended. Valis, not just a nightmare with the issues themselves, but the lack of support and follow up is even worse. Go and sit in your doctor's office until he gets so tired of you that you move up the waiting list.Birky, is BMW corner a German tourist attraction that the coach turns up for? Tiny, hope you got up and out, and PSC, enjoy the rest. Blood tests this morning to see if I will ever find out the cause of my anaemia and night sweats, work do this evening so I'm hoping I don't fall asleep on the train and wake up at the end of the line again, Mr F does get a bit cross.

11/10/2012 at 08:28


2.5 slow miles done for me.  Was much easier than last time and felt pleasantly mild.  Was great to run to a section where there are no streetlamps and try out my headtorch for the first time.  I kept screaming when moths flew across the beam! Plus I fell over when trying to put my socks on half asleep, and initially ran out without putting my contact lenses in - no wonder everything was blurry! Had to go back and put them in.  SO a bit of a comedy of errors this morning but I enjoyed it so much more than last time.  Still struggling with sore muscles though (I never have this on evening runs). Presumably because my body hasn't warmed up yet.

NW: 1 DW.....that's it! Not another soul.  Oh and it was quite surprising to hear so much birdsong in the darkness.  Lovely

Oh Valis just read you post, that sounds like bit of a night mare. Unfortunatly I still smoke and I do worry that one day something like that will happen to me especially the more I push myself physically. I have attempted giving up so many time I have sort of given up giving up. Today after my tempo run I couldn't stop coughing for about 3 mins after the run, big sign to me to try again.

And before people start sugesting various way to give up, well I have tried them all, its up to me I now know it got to be will power and I will make an effort...again.  

11/10/2012 at 09:10

tommy - it is like training, you just have to man up and do it! how you can do all the training you do and still smoke is beyond me!
