Morning all, rise and shine. Getting ready for early morning swim session, then a busy day with a visit to osteopath late afternoon.

Found a physio in the village who specialises in sports injuries so will also call her and see what she can suggest.

Letter from GP says their practice boundary being redrawn and the village is now outside it, so from April will have to start 'training' new docs. Humph.

Benz - Cafe Vicolo, my fave place (Cafe des Amis) is closed on Sunday night.

Bah - I thought I might get to name the thread being up at 6:02, but Helen's beaten me to it - we have some early risers on this thread!!

Good news on the physio Helen :)

2.5km fast on treadmill - if anything it hurt less than trying to run slowly. Pain increased when I stopped, so lots of stretching, more outer and inner thigh machines, a short fast swim (goggles leaking - grrrr) and drove home kneading very painful, knotty inner thigh muscles, which seems to have helped, but goodness knows what the other drivers in the queue from Snorbens to the M25 thought I was doing :-)

Porridge and banana craving when I got home, so decided it was a good breakfast combination. Could now do with an hour of sleep now, but work beckons.

Dinner with a different man tonight, my cup runneth over... :-)

morning all .. a little stiff this morning after the long run yesterday, a little slow after the 2 bottles of wine me and the mr had too!
Hope it goes well Helen!
Training this morning (yawn) each morning this week actually.

Like Benz I MUST do some serius college work tonight as I have an assignment due this week and I would rather hand it in on Wednesday when I am there rather than having to drive in especially on friday!

So this means a forum ban for a good 1-2 hours tonight ... someone remind me of that later!!

Oh Benz/Helen ... hubby doesn;t want me to do Blackpool as it is a long way away and I don;t see Oliver much as it is and I would be dumping him and he won't see me that weekend. Sounding terminal but I will work on him :-( I'm going to stop myslef from talking on any marathon threads from now I think 'cos evry time I do something happens and I have to pull out again!! Arrggghhh

anyway must do some work I suppose!!
Have a great one guys and gals!

Morning all, all very positive so far this morning!

Three mile gentle recovery run for me today, after a 15 mile long run yesterday, through the sort of mud that tries to suck the trainers off your feet. Had to hose my trainers off in the back yard afterwards.

Hope everyone has a great day - going to try to stay off the forums till this evening (some hope)
10/02/2003 at 08:29
OK, it was positive, but Pixies thread wasn't on when I was typing - can't you persuade the Mr to come along to B'pool and bring the nipper with you??

Well done Lamby.

Morning all
10/02/2003 at 08:48
Good morning all!

Well done, all who have already run.

EP, keep plugging away about Blackpool if that's what you really want to do. If you can convince him that you're serious, that this means a lot to you and that you're really going to give it your best shot, who knows?

I've started work already. Wretched nurse is having this week's casual sick day today (wouldn't do to have it on her day off or on one of her half-days, would it?) so I've been landed with some nursey jobs. Reminded the staff of the stringent Sex Discrimination Act test they must use, though - do not THINK of asking me to do any nursing tasks that they would not ask Lay-Zee-Boy or Fizgog to do.

BTW, my old phys seems to have been right, stretched my back out, ran tall and no real hamstring problems - Bune was a bit worried I was going to do some serious damage.
10/02/2003 at 09:02
Great stuff, Lamb. I shall not even get close enough to eat the dust off your heels (or admire your shades) in London.

I might try to fit in a little run later if time and weather permit. Stood on scales this morning - they say I'm up a couple of pounds, but I haven't eaten 7,000 calories more than I need in the past week so they must be trying to have a laugh.

V-rap even if that is the case (I doubt it!) we should def have a FFF preFLM get together some time on the sat. I think RB and a lot of the others are meeting at the Thistle hotel near trafalgar square. be great to finally meet the dino-queen!
10/02/2003 at 09:19
I'm staying in that very Thistle Hotel, Lamb, so I'll have no excuse for not making an appearance in the bar with my (repaired) URWFRC t-shirt on. Looking forward to a leisurely pre-race night and a proper breakfast with caffeine in it this time round!
10/02/2003 at 09:23
Great stuff! As long as you don't show your very fearsome teeth and claws!

what happened to the t-shirt?
