I am still niggling too so have changed my training schedule. The medics will tell you that running injuries are repetitive strain injuries so have reduced my training to 1 day per week.  And on that day I will do either an ultra or marathon!!! LOL   South Downs LDWA tomorrow - bring it on!

Good luck tomorrow PSC hopefully catch up with you next weekend.

Afternoon all - in the spirit of being stupid I ended up doing a mini triathlon this morning - 2.4k swim, spin class then lovely run through the woods, not really a taper for Sussex tomorrow. Good luck PSC. Nice NW birky, hopefully you'll stay niggle free valis. Welcome along Dean. See you tomorrow MC. Swim analysis session this afternoon so I may be joining you for a walk!

I have my LSR planned for tomorrow and want to get it done in the morning so I have the rest of the day to do stuff. Any advice on what I should do/eat for dinner/sacrifice to relevant gods so I am fuelled and ok for a morning run tomorrow. 

I'm trying to go into this with an open mind but I have to admit I'm terrified it's going to feel hellish!

Not been on for a while. backed by 45 6am runs this year I am ready for tomorrow's marathon (my 1st race since October). After getting up at 5.30am tomorrow to get to the race, no more getting up at for 6am to run for a while I think!!

In for  a nosey.

afternoon all

PSC - good luck tomorrow

Kate - I just picked up my number - can't remember what it is  it is in the boot of the car - I'll have a look in a minute. Think I will wear running tights and a pink top. Not sure how much to wear considering walking fast isn't as warm as running, maybe two layers then I can strip off a layer if I am too hot. I'll have a look at your photo on facebook and see if I manage to recognise you tomorrow!

!0k run this morning followed by an afternoon of lawn mowing! NW 1 rabbit, 1 pheasant and a jay

cheers all....  i'm suddenly looking forward to it!  I have the route from last year so nav should be easy!  I've also just sewed a front pouch onto my inov8 pack to take a bottle.  Very pro!!

I'm pleasently weary - I took by new bike out for an hour or so today and absolutely have fallen back in love with cycling.  I got a Giant TCX2 cross bike, much more comfy than a roadie but same shape, bars, etc.  It's the dogs bits.  Down hill it will still push 30+ but it is generally slower as it has softer/bigger tyres and is heavier.  I've even put a frame on the back so that I can commute with it if the weather ever imrpoves. 

Tired and happy....

kate - didn't manage to see you. Had a good time but wished I could have just run it. Only took 10 minutes longer than last year when I was running though

evening all just back from the sport that shall not be mentioned

Scored big points with Nephew when on the way home I was the only person to recognise him and then get him to  autographed my nephews programme, my childhood hero Clive Walker. Even better when he got off he turned round said bye and waved  for about 20 minutes I let my nephew believe I new him from years back.

Well done  Maths would of been so easy to stay at home, but you didn't give up and when the knees fixed you should be able to smash your previous time.

how much fun was that... LDWA South Downs mara done and dusted... Loved it and it was T Shirt and Shorts weather (just) - wonderful sunshine!  Second time I've done this event and have to say it's a winner. 28 miles of mahoosive hills - constantly climbing (or so it seemed)!

Will have a think about a report when I've had a bit of a zzz  as I'm shattered!

Well done Maths/Kate.

Morning you lot

Cold one up here today

A hill session done off road. 6 x Hills. Mile warm Up/Down

NW: 1 owl, 1 deer, 4 rabbits, 3 BMWs, 1 Nike trainer randomly lying on path.

Well done to Maths?Kate

valis: Good Blues spotting. Clive Walker was a cracking player back in late 70s/early 80s.

Morning all - just weights for me this morning, sorry, functional training to name it correctly. Really enjoyed the marathon yesterday, pretty brutal for a road race, ran to heart rate so had a slower second half finished in about 4.18. Sorry not to see you MC, we didn't get there until quite late then were catching up with club mates at the start. Beautiful scenery and well organised, I had outrider support from Mr F on the bike some of the way round too. Wasn't as brave as you in the shorts and T shirt though PSC.
