A great prize & challenge
Not at all Jen, doesn't matter how fast or slow you are. No pressure though.
No problem seren, thanks for considering it.
Shame on me btw. I forgot Tigger - I'm sure she said she was up for it. Also Paul, can't remember what you said?
Grinchy - Just seen your post!! Argh! That sucks! Hope it gets sorted and heals up quickly!!
grinchy... bad news.can you do swimming .. even if its with a pullbuoy to imobolise legs................and what about the belt things that let you aqua run........hope you heal quickly
Grinchy - Def worth looking at Seren's idea - I've heard good things about aqua running for injured runners! We need you fit and well for TR!!
Sarah - I need to get my arse in gear and sign up. Have you signed up for it yet?
Indy - really sorry to hear about your injury. How bad is the tear do you know?
A friend of mine had a fairly minor meniscus tear earlier in the year. He recovered within a month but I know it can vary. His referral letter contained the classic quote:
"Mr Smith experiences approximately 20 minutes of morning stiffness."
Good to hear that you're up for TR24. You have plenty of time to get fit for that.
Grinchy, that's awful right on top of Christmas! Let's hope it's not too serious and you're back out there soon!
I am 100% definite for TR24 - sounds like amazing fun
RRR - in a pair
Sarah, let's see how we go for numbers here though my general view on this is the more the merrier. Max team size is 8 though.
I think Tony and Tigger were both interested so that would be another too. Just waiting to hear from them.
Ady? Paul? Where are you on this?
Grinchy, hope knee improves quickly, how gutting, but great timing for xmas playing!!
I had a rubbish run in the wind n rain last night felt like I was going backwards!! But I still chalked up 5 miles!
Malcs- are you already entered in a team?
Been for a swim today- thought the cross training would be worth it as legs a bit tight after tempo run yesterday. could have saved myself the admission fee and gone in the puddles outside instead
Grinchy- gutting to hear about the knee, means you'll have to rest up. I recommend alcohol as a pain killer/relaxant, or general way to pass the time over the Xmas period!!!
Yeah, I entered back in November with the same guys I did it with last year so unfortunately I can't join the bootcamp team.
I'm happy to do the admin but I'm not sure what happens when it comes to entering - it may need someone to volunteer as team captain. I don't know if you can enter a team but not be part of it if you see what I mean.
Evening all....it's been a few days since I last popped in on here. I thought I would post in the calm of this thread, before diving in head first to the individual forum pages. It looks like everyone's is going well
Grinchy.....very sorry to hear about your injury. That's terrible news. How did you do it? Do you know how long you need to rest for? At least you have an excuse for being waited on hand and foot over the Xmas period!
I don't think I'll be able to participate in TR24 unfortunately. A little annoying as it sounds quite an experience!
Did anyone go out running in the rain today? Very happy it's a cross-training day for me today!
I was out in the rain - loved it! Nice easy 5 miles. Rain wasn't too heavy though so I think I got off lightly.
Ady - sorry that your thread seems to have been taken over by a training strategy debate. I genuinely believe that everyone means you well which is why they are having the discussion. Also, there seems to be alot of confusion as to the point of these myAsics plans. They do seem a bit strange. Clearly all of yours have had major tweaks thankfully.
Shame about TR24 - maybe next year?
haha.....absolutely nothing wrong with a good old debate or discussion. I'm sure everyone will be all the more enlightened for it, especially someone in my position.
I'd definitely love to do TR24 one day.
Just seen the weather for Saturday. Lookins like I'll be doing my first long run of the training plan in a monsoon.
Cross training for me aswell this eve! involved lots squats
I've got the pleasure of squats to look forward to on Sunday They'll be one sore gluteus maximus come Monday morning!
