Minni v Dubai Dave
Move on Minni - plenty more fishes in the sea
Tri club tonight - I made them do 20 x 1 minute efforts
I will be at TM Minni, I will probably participate - calling it running might be a bit of a stretch..................
O4S, I hope you have a much better week this week!!
2old, can't wait to see that perm
Gazelle, the orthotics are going well thanks. Still no running, am being patient and leaving it until Nov. But yesterday was an amazing day as I had absolutely NO niggles from my pesky calf I usually feel it at several points of the day, really minimal pain but noticable nonetheless. Yesterday when walking back from the gym I realised I'd felt nothing all day. I am really hoping I am turning the corner....
Oompa, all I can say is I wish my orthotics had only cost £120 Oh well, if that's the price I have to pay for getting back to running (and for living somewhere with year round sunshine ) I will pay it. Mind you, what with the orthotics, needing a new ipod and now a new phone (unless the phone geeks can repair it), OH says I'm rapidly turning into high maintenance girl. I'll be hiring a hairdresser to run with me next.......
Speaking of ipods, Bro, as I'm currently minus any gizmo to listen to MT, if you made the podium I will congratulate you in a couple of weeks' time when I actually get to listen to the episode *sigh*
I'm in the Simon school that less is best, I have over the years weaned myself off the support shoes and now run everything in Saucony Kinvara's which have virtually no support. I did have calve muscle problems during the weaning period no doubt due to the drop in heel height placing a strain on the Achilles / calve. But its all good now, can't say I'm tempted to go the bare foot route but I do believe that most runners don't need all the support bells and whistles. Not at all convinced that most of you need orthotics, I was told that I needed them years ago, ignored the advice let the injury heal and carried on. Any way I guess its horses for courses.
Minni: I have had loads of folks tell me that they will train with me and then realise that what I consider a normal day isn't quite what they had in mind! Its our club unofficial motto that we don't go back for the dead, nick their Garmin and keep running.
O4S: Sounds as if you have been in the wars again, your life always sound incredibly busy.
Last nights intervals wre horrid it was 31C with very high humidity, I thought I was melting. It was 6 x 1K off 2 minute recoveries which went 3.56 /3.56 /4.05 / 4.00 / 4.05 / 4.06 was struggling by the last two.
Will splash at lunch and that's it for the day.
2old. - it was a running session.
Minni - I coach tri club and running club although I am considering ditching the tri club. More on that later......
i don't have a whip but I do have a whisle and a stop watch
very special day for me today. The iPhone 5 should arrive
Oompa - No experience of orthotics, but I think it was Keir off the sub 3:15 thread was having problems with his knee when he started running, took a break got fitted with orthotics which sorted out his problem.
O4S - Are you doing Swindon HM, if so what I am looking out for, I'll be stood around the 1 mile mark with my youngest(13) and the dog.
DD - Decent repeats from you, some speed coming back in your legs?
Still getting issues with pain on the right side of my head so went to dentist and he thinks problem is with tooth that has been filled several times and I've got a problem with the right side of my jaw. First thing he wants to do is take out all the filling from the tooth and see what is left of the tooth. Was in two minds whether before or after Abo and the earliest appt they've got is next Wednesday (need a long appt ), which I've gone for as hoping will solve problem and leave me pain free for Abo. 5 miles slow this morning.

Whoop whoop congrats to the first lady on the MT podium this week!!!
Whoop whoop congrats to the first lady on the MT podium this week!!!
I listened on my way to work - and didn't know her name before, but do now! Something about a 3.21 at Chester....absolutely smashed the rest of the podium Do you think we can get a clean sweep of the podium at the TM?
Minni - he'll come crawling back when he realises the error of his ways, and when he does, don't let him off lightly
O4S - hope Mr O4S is OK and you are too? I still can't get my head round you doing the 50 the week before TM...you will need plenty of that flap jack
DD - speedy reps in that heat!
Freemers: The 50 was booked long before TM was mentioned, it is an annual event for us that we really enjoy. That is the main reason I'm not sure if I will get round 5 laps of TM without seriously eating in to drinking time Perhaps the forum outing should be a 10km next year.......................
AA: I'm not actually racing any of them!
Barry: Small, blonde, old, slow. Wearing white Westbury Harriers top with blue chest hoop. I presume I look out for a small yellow bird??
DD: just the original infection from the surgery spread a bit, probably not helped by 30 muddy miles on Saturday. [I didn't actually mention that to the docs]
DD-fast intervals in any weather but in that heat is something else..you will be adding to your collection of bling
Barry-theres not much worse than tooth ache especially when you have towait to get it fixed. Still its a different pain to focus on and will take your mind off the pain of pb ing.
AA-hope your MP run goes well-they usually do ,its the slower stuff thats hardest to do from my experience
Spoons-a running session-still thats not much more fun to do either. You must be busy with all that coaching
SS-i gave up running with an ipod a couple of months ago and am enjoying the running experience a lot more now and my ears arent as sore. Changed my mind not getting a perm but a mohican instead.
With all these outstanding performances here-pbs, bling ,podiums(congrats Bro) I am beginning to wonder whether Team minni are modelled on Lance Armstrong's methods of enhancing team performance.
The results of the 10K I did on Sunday have now been published and sadly my time of 40.04 has been confirmed .On the bright side I came 7th out of 350 so I have to be pleased with that though I was a long way off the winner's 32.52. (Told you most of the fast runners were elsewhere).Incidentally the ladies winner did it in 42.59 and second was 46.39 so you lady runners here would have been fighting each other on the podium. That would have been fun to see.
Weather forecast for Peterborough is now light rain...I am going to shave my head
Carrot - You're right about the cost being relatively small in the grand scheme of things, so have booked a "fitting".
Strange mix of recovery, taper and focused running on here at the moment.
Brolish/Gazelle - As I don't listen to MT can you explain the podium stuff! Sounds like Gazelle's fine running has been recognised properly.
Old4Speed - glad you and Mr O4S are ok after hospital visits, I would suggest you take it easy but that might would appear to be a waste of my time so i'll just wish you well.
Minni - you are normally so suportive on peolpes running exploits you obviosly didn't have much time for your work collegue.
SS - glad to here your pain free at last.
I'm loving the team Minni support crew arrangements for TM, do you have massage tent and some one to hand out the foil blankets lined up yet?
I managed 3 miles walking split between the morning and afternoon yesterday, and did 35ish lengths in the pools this morning of which only 10ish were crawl. Still making me feel tired but much less so, and my hand is feeling better very day, just a bit clumsy and still missing an odd word or two.
