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
Tapering you lot are talking dirty already.
Len When you hit the tapering lark. Make sure you have something hardy to keep your mind off doing stuff or you will be climbing the walls and your family will call in a priest to take out the devil in you. Personally I find a dvd box set and just sit back and watch back to back wire, Red Dwarf or something. Can lend you some dvd's if you want next time see you. You normally get a wiff or hay fever and thing it's plague as well.
