Minni v Dubai Dave
2old- Lets hope that the rest was all you needed for your calf, do you have a foam roller that you could use to iron it out a bit more?
I'm hoping to follow Darren's route and get super fast over the next few months so keep posting your training runs please
Sarah- 12miles at mp, wow that's some going at such an early stage in your training, that must give you a big boost.
Chick- Good luck tomorrow if its still on.
Bro- Well done on the xc, are you or anyone else on here entering the RW forum 6?
DD- What a great result even though you were ill.

PS I know who the mentors are and I'm not one of them!
Go on spill the beans......
Minni- Careful on your lsr tomorrow, that road looks lethal.
This week I have completed a tempo run (7.08mm), speed session 8x300m between 6:17 and 6:23mm, an 8.3mile off road run and a couple of recovery runs. I just hope I haven't left all my speed in training for next weeks 10k.
2old - glad you've had a week off. Lets hope that's sorted the calf out. By the way how are those micro pigs coming along?
O4S - This chesty thing that's going around is horrible. Lets hope you're on the mend soon.
Simon - so funny! Glad you're ok and well done for not ditching the run.
Gazelle - do you think you're in pb shape for next week?
I'm not sure anyone on here needs the Forum6. Everyone is highly motivated and we dish out loads of advice between us. However, if anyone was thinking about it then I'd definitely recommend it. There are some top quality mentors involved this year and you might not get this chance again.
Totally agree Simon.
I have a long run to do. Can't face it
Ouch, Simon . Glad the injury doesn't seem too bad. But give it a few rest days if the bruise still hurts badly. 2old: nice to see you back!Well, the race wasn't cancelled. Apparently the conditions were ok where the race was taking place but we never made it. Total wipeout this morning. 15cm of fresh snow and none of our roads had been cleared yet. The 45 min drive would have easily taken twice as long. In the end couldn't be bothered to go through that for a mediocre time. Let's face it: running on snow isn't really conducive to fast times. It's now raining and blowing a hooley. Yuk. I baked a bread and made some x-mas cookies instead . Once it's less slippery out there I will go for a little run. Target mileage for the week is 80 and I am missing 6 to get there Spoons: get out there! Running makes the hangover disappear in no time, honest!
O4S: hope they find out what's wrong with you. It may just be a virus that's taking it out of you.
80 chick? Did you say 80???? Sounds like you've got a lot of snow. Shame about the 10k.
Lovely morning here. Windy but the sun is out and the air is cool rather than cold. 16 miles avg 8:45. I'll take that.
Spoons - tut tut!
Old4Scrouge, fingers crossed the blood test will show something up and if not least it will rule common causes of teeling tired out such as anaemia and thyroid problems. I know we have a lot of whooping cough going around still which can make you chesty, wheezy and tired without many signs when you listen to someones chest. Hope they get to the bottom of it soon and your feeling better soon.
O4S Hope you feel better soon....again whooping cough is going around at the moment and causes persistent chest symptoms (sometimes up to a couple of months)....dont always get signs on the chest...might be worth asking to be checked to see if you have had that to give you some answers
Hi 2old, and Gazelle, thankyou for the positive comments
SBC, I cant believe that they didnt cancel the race in those conditions, you did right staying in. 80 miles? OMG, thats loads....how do you fit all those in?
Ouch simon that sounded painful, but least it didnt spoil your run. Hope your not too sore (and black and blue) this morning?
What a fabulous idea minni, Sarah recommended a foam roller at BC last week so i was planning on getting one, but now I can use the home made version instead!
2old ive found that the photos ive saved on my computer are too large to upload on here, but if i download and save them again from facebook, they some how become smaller and will upload on here!
Spoons, Im in agreement with 2Old and SCB....best way to cure a hangover is to bite the bullet and go for a run, although its not going to be an enjoyable one, good luck!
Ive itchy feet...at my inlaws, left my trainers at home, so ive got to wait until I get home this evening before I can get out on a run!
