Oh PSC I am painting the wrong picture, a day of dull awaits!
4 slow miles this morning, niggly but not painful, although was getting there towards the end
PSC - thanks for the stretch, I'll do that one in the gym later. The physio did show me 3 stretches, she said they difficult thing is that you can't actually feel the stretch like when you stretch a muscle. Anyway, possibly the easiest one is lying on a sofa on your side, bend bottom leg slightly and let top leg hang over the side. Stay like that for 5 mins then swap sides. One is a bit of a yoga move, which seems to require slightly more balance than I could manage when I got back from my run.
Kate - have fun
Last run before Beachy done. Nice gentle 5 miles in light drizzle - no-one else around at all his morning. I think the plan for today and tomorrow is early nights and lots of pasta!
Maths: hope your ITB settles down soon.
Tommy: Guess I may see you on Saturday then?
Hi Celtic You may see me there, as the weather is due to turn cold I may have to review what top I will wear. I'll let you know on Friday night. I seem to have bit of a snotty cold at the moment but should still be good to go on Saturday. I try not to over do the pasta thing the day before a marathon as I find it can make me feel heavy and lathargic. I tend to have a pasta lunch and then a pizza in the evening, porridge for breakfast of the morning of the race, but each to thier own.
Evening and the griters were out on the roads here when I walked Geordie about an hour ago.
forecast here for tomorrow is pretty cold - time to get the tights and long sleeves out then
Morning you lot
Cold one up here. Gloves and hat on when out. Brrr
4 Easy Miles. legs stiff today.
NW: 1 owl, 2 rabbits, 2 horses, 1 cat 1 Kingsmill Van, 1 ' Boy Racer type driver giving it lots of revs...
Morning all, cooler here this morning so did go for the long sleeve tshirt and gloves. 9 miles in total, about 5 along the trail which was so easy today with no fog and then added a bit round town. Apart from annoying an owl who hooted his annoyance didn't see a thing along the trail. Four other runners round town and two dog walkers. PSC what is Skyfall? Good luck at Beachy over the weekend guys, anyone else got a race?
Who has seen the Sweatshop catalogue in this month's Runners World. There is a head torch in there for £160. You could get a set of headlights for less surely!
Couple of days rest Hopefully I will do park run tomorrow although at a very slow pace.
Good luck to Tommy and Celtic Runner for Beachy
Kate, Good luck, sure your doing something this weekend although I can't remember what.
Jf50, Skyfall = 007
had a bit of a late night as I went to the pub after the tri club swim. We did a 400m time trial (after about 45 minutes other swimming) and I was faster than last time so happy, however, struggled to get up this morning (and I don't drink so not due to alcohol) - how come I feel more tired at the end of half term than at the beginning??
PSC - enjoy Skyfall, not my kind of thing though
good luck to those at Beachy Head this weekend, and to Chris at Snowdon (although he hasn't posted here for a while)
I will do some stretches etc and have a run at some point later in the day

Doh, I thought it was a race I hadn't heard of
Ps. Does anyone know how to get more flexible? I can't touch my toes, I can just about touch under my knees. It's very embarrassing stretching in public when I look stupid.
why would you want to touch your toes?
tried running and it was painful so walked back. Very cold out there
I think touching toes is not a recommended stretch as it can hurt and cause damage. Not sure where I read that. There are better stretches to do. Don't think I would be very good explaining them on here, I'll try to find some on the internet to link to...
this is a start
