Minni v Dubai Dave
Scuba Trooper - that all sounds very familiar. I had a PFO which is fixed now. Did 400 dives with no ill effects before finding out about it. Only found out after getting migraines after Trimix dives. Had the bubble echo and they found it. Got it closed at the end of 2010, but I still have some residual shunt. Will probably have another test soon to see if that has gone. Don't think getting it fixed improves athletic performance however! (PS feel free to PM me if you want any info)
ST, good news to know what's going and even better that there's a solution in sight.
Minni, hope you feel better soon. Give yourself a bit of a break and see how you feel in a few days.
Superstars sounds great.
Some good news on my knee. Went to see my chiro today who said that my glutes weren't working, but corrected my back and says that the knees should be better in a few days . I'm finding the cycling easier to fit in at the moment and am quite enjoying it, but am also looking at runners with envy so it'll be good to be able to do a bit of both.
I hope the long run followed by a race plan was a joke Spoons? I've done a long run the day after a (shorter) race but not the other way round. I've attempted a parkrun after 13 miles and that was bad enough
2old Minni is talking sense, injury aside a few weeks off will do you good after Liverpool. Did you go spinning?
Minni you wouldn't have asked if you knew you were well enough to race on Sunday. Sack it off, have a lie in and get yourself better again. And have a god time in Edinburgh, I love a night out in Edinburgh
Good to hear you finally have a diagnosis ST, hope they can do something for you that will get you back out running again where you want to be.
Enjoy the pyramid Chick, pyramids are the best session there is!
I prefer 1K reps to mile reps too DD, mile reps are horrible. Nice session last night off short recoveries!
Did 10 miles last night with Parsnip and 5 with a friend tonight. I'm off to Liverpool on Saturday with a few friends, hoping to get out on Sunday when we get back for about 14 miles but it'll depend on how much time I have before we head out to watch the football at 4pm (OK, and how hungover I am)
Hmmm 2old I didn't think of packing my kit and running there! I could sneak out before the girls even wake up...
Minni: I'm probably not the best person to advise on this, but if you do run don't try to push it. I have done races coughing and spitting my way round and provided you don't try to push it you often find you feel better at the end. Mind you the races need to be at least 30 miles long
Brol - After racing on Sunday, will not be doing a lot next week, maybe a 3 slow monday, 5 tuesday with 3 at MP and that will probably be it until the Sunday.
Very good line up for the Superstars, I don't think it will ever return as professional sportsmen and their paymasters(especially the footballers) would be too concerned about picking up injuries.
Minni - If you are coughing stuff up don't think you should be doing strenuous exercise let alone racing. Hope the race goes well.
Really sorry to have not posted of late - office move around means that my screen is very visable to the boss & home life has been super busy too with one thing and the other!! Anyways WAH today (we have our 20 week scan for mini-cookster number 2 at lunchtime - fingers crossed all ok) - so easier to post!
Loving the Superstars!! They redid it about 6-7 years ago & enjoyed that series but this line up looks a bit special!
Daren - re pacing, you'll smash it buddy!! Only thing I would say is factor in a bit of over and under for the hills (mate from work has done Norwich and says there are a couple of hills) - I used toi try and run flat pace irrespective of the hills but 'smoothing the effort' makes life easier.
Valencia on Sunday - currently there is lightning forecast for the middle of the race! Bit of a knee issue - fell over on last long run and bashed it & it has reawakened my tendonitis from footy days That said I've laid off during taper and it feels ok - acid test will be on the day. Fingers crossed!!
Anyways, hope all well & hopefully be able to contribute more when things settle down at home....
PS Oompa - are you doing the Tunny Wells half in Feb? Oh yeah, good luck for Brighton btw
Cooks - you're right there are a couple of hills, but the only real uphill (which youdo twice as it is two laps) is preceded by a nice downhill, so Daren should be able to stretch out a bit there and even it up for the uphill. I really think he is going to smash his PB again...whether he gets close to your blue time though I'm not sure, and I think it will be close! I would say you two are probably really evenly matched so it would be good to get a Daren / Cooks smackdown going some time soon
Minni - how are you feeling today?
I think Mo will be really good at Superstars, he is just so competitive. Did anyone see him on the Cube?
I really wish I had run yesterday instead of today. Yesterday was lovely and sunny. Today isn't....looks dank and cold. Need to psych myself up to get out there...
Freemers - I think it will be very close and to half-paraphrase Mr Keegan - 'I would love it he beat it' That kind of works Love healthy competition, helps one to improve!! Re a smackdown - only if the tv rights are enough, I'll speak to me agent!
Simon- yes, I'm chilling, thank you. I refuse to be stressed this time round (remind me I said it next week).
Becs- good news on the knees front, hope you're back running soon.
Carrot- good luck with running and drinking in Liverpool.
Barry- good luck with the 10k. By the way- did you have to get a med certificate for Florence?
Cooks- exciting stuff with mini cookster, hope the scan goes well.
8m for me later today with 3x 1000m reps. Was supposed to do them before work but just couldn't get out of bed so it will have to wait until tonight.
Its Friday!!! And there is racing comong up this weekend but not for me
Cooks -nice of you to pop in-everyone has a minor disaster prior to their marathon-apart from Bro when its a major one.Im sue all is going to go great and we are all wondering how close to 3 hrs you are going to be.Have a great trip
Free-Yes I saw Mo in the Cube-he was so calm-nerves of steel and yet he looked really relaxed and as if he was having fun. Dont overr think going to run today,as they say,just do it
kfc-no problems with calf after spinning session but it is stiff ,much as you describe yours, and that tells me if I run too soon the problem is likely to return.Saying that I will do a test run on Sunday all being well
FRC-theres some great running around Crosby /Formby etc. I know about that marathon and would like to do one of the days on a'just have a go 'basis without any time pressures that I place on myself.It would be a good way to start off the years marathon training too.Are you doing the Conway Half on Sunday? I would have liked to run it but its not to be.
Carot - If you do run to Crosby to 'the iron men', just remember to check the tides, cus when it's in, you can see 'jack sh*t' of them.
