Sparkly bridget v Len2
pops up from lurking........
ice grips were like gold dust last winter and some people were able to carry on running with them. I've bought a pair in anticipation. That means it probably won't snow so either way its a win:win
Get well soon Len.
I'd better go now, I should have gone swimming over an hour ago but the sofa has been too appealing.
Yaktraks - thats the name I was looking for! Thanks Bridget. I bought some other type in the Mountain Warehouse shop which don't look as good as those yaktraks I saw last year. Just couldn't remember the name.
and yes I know, I know - swimming - before anyone says anything.
The general rule is if the cold is all above the neck then run but take it gently. Below the neck = REST!
Sometimes if i have a bit of a cold I start to cough when running because of the post-nasal drip
Tracey's been checking up on me on Facebook
Which half are you doing?
Just a short and gentle plod if you do venture out Len
I brought some fab macaroons back from Paris. Mr USB was going to make some today but he 'didn't get round to it' ;-(
Compeed you say? Must get some myself! I have a lovely blister on the back of my heel after running in soggy muddy trail shoes on Sunday, when I didn't realise the lace had come undone. Doh!
Len - think of this as a lovely rest week. You'll come back more enthusiastic and raring to go. Honestly. And its good taper training as well. Hope you feel better soon
Tapering is much madder than that Len -
You won't know what do do with yourself, you'll get scared you'll get injured on the taper, you'll get scared you'll get ill the week before, you'll convince youself you have no right to be attempting a marathon at all, you'll probably get twitchy and possibly weepy and time will seem to slow down until you think the day will never come and you just want to get it over with ...
But it will all work out in the end
Len - you can and you will do this! Altogether now ..................... Feck off cold
I found it quite hard when running very reduced mileage in Nov/Dec. Weird getting in from work and not thinking of going for a run. Eventually found myself doing strange things like turning up curtains!
We don't have a breadmaker, it is all done by hand. Mr USB does keep eyeing up the breadmakers but I keep pointing out the space it would take up.
Is it the gluten? Can you get GF bread mix? I'm a bit ignorant that way
Rebecca - (I think it was you with the med students). We had one today who clearly wasn't expecting to need to get down on the floor with children. Very nice knee high boots and short dress which I'm sure the chaps would have liked!
