Minni v Dubai Dave
AA Or your stem is too long and your reaching too far forward, answer is a bike fit but they don't come cheap.. Simon the drop between my saddle and bars has decreased over the years but I'm still bum up....... just
DD - What's the min speed limit you allow anyone on your race track?
Minni - that's exactly my plan. Originally I was planning on sub 1:30 or at least a big PB but I think that would be unfair on Daren. I now plan on jogging round just in front of the sweeper vehicle.
Still catching up with posts so thought I should just wish good luck to all the racers this weekend.
The best money I have ever spent was getting a 'made to measure bike'. I went from struggling on a 60 mile day to feeling very comfortable on 130+ miles in a day. have never had bach ache on the bike since - in fact it was so good I have a second bike made to measure - which is probably why we are both still working long past pension age
Brol - Nice last long run - New York will be here before you know it.
Becs - Great report, well done for keeping going when things got tough, a marathon is hard enough when you are not struggling with injury.
Gazelle - I know what you mean but don't be tempted to do too much too soon, I was off for 4 months with PF after running too soon after a mara.
2old - I read some nonsense somewhere that if you have a bad dream about something it usually turns out OK, but saying that I had bad dream once about going to a work awards ceremony getting drunk and making an arse of myself and guess what I went, got v drunk on red wine and made an arse of myself, I was called up for an award but the company director could n't get my name right so I refused to get up and it got worse as the evening went on, knocking a bottle of red over my boss's wife, using my award a bowling ball etc - needless to say kept a low profile at work for a few days after. Anyway good luck I'm sure you'll be fine.
AA - Fond memories involving Diamond White.
Cooks - Good luck for Maidstone, fully fit but on a hillier course PB?
Daren/Minni/Spoons/Freemers - Do us proud at GER.
O4S - Good luck at Swindon, be looking out for you.
AA - Stay on the brake hoods instead, it will help your back, and at our level, the extra drag isn't going to stop us getting on the podium anyway, and you can enjoy the scenery more.
2old - So going with Barrys experience were bad dreams come true. Just remind us what that bad dream was of yours.
