Minni v Dubai Dave
Logged my 2 runs. Only 67%. I'm sorry. I've let the team down.
I was checking the rules for Jantastical as could n't understand why some Teams had max points but all runners had n't completed all runs. Rules state top75% of team to count towards avg to allow for injuries so that's 16.5(16) runners for us.
Chick - Nice long run. Felt the cold on my breath this morning when I first set off but OK after a mile or so.
Alright crew, just back from throwing my money down the drain watching Arsenal lose yet again.
But I did get my 16 miler in this morning. Lovely conditions down here. Nice and crisp and the sun even came out to warm my cockles. It was really a run of 2 halves. The first 13 miles were fab, and the last 3 were a complete drag! All completed though @ 8:33 m/m
Minni - bit early for a name and shame list - save that for monday night I've logged all my runs you'll be pleased to hear.
And still on the wagon
I've logged the final run Minni, call off the dogs.
Carl March gets complicated as you have to predict a race time and no one could work out the crazy formula they used to award points. I'm still sore at being about 40 seconds out for a ten mile and getting a middling score.
Simon for effort, I think the duathlon should count as two runs, but I don't make the rules.
KFC great to see you running long.
Spoons this tightness that may or may not have been in your head, did this develop before the prospect of plunging into icy rivers was put out there?
O4S - three 30 mile races?!
Relaying sounds fun Carrot. I didn't sign up to the club I tried out in the end as I knew I'd be moving again soon, but I really do mean to get more involved in a club when I'm settled.
Weeble - I didn't go near the rivers. That was my crazy GF. I was watching (laughing) with hat, coat and gloves on.
Simon - re the PF, are you regiously massaging your foot with a golf ball. Find the thickened tissue and break it down with a rotating motion. That's what was recommended to me and it works. Note that the pain source and the scar tissue may be in the same place.
Spoons re core strength. I was reading that it is essential to work on your hip muscles to building running related core strength. Dunno if you are doing that as well. I can upload a pic of some of the exercises if you are interested.
Weeble: fear not, the 30 milers are not being treated as races - in fact one of them is just a social run I organise every year. The other two are 'events' but given the ground conditions I suspect survival is the best we can hope for The 20 miler is the Reading 20 so will be taken marginally more seriously - perhaps!
Ant - please upload that hip flexor pic.
Minni - It's from a book - I've taken a photo and hopefully the upload works...
Nice running, O4S. And a lot of awfully long runs in planning

The bad news is, decided to go back to wearing my normal running shoes, ( which felt really heavy) hoping to give some protection to my heal. Started to hurt after 6m, and had to stop at 6.7m. Got my OH to come and collect me and my shattered dreams Boo hoo! So back to square one, but at least I've still got 15wks til race day, and we're doing ok in Jantastic

Well done everyone on a fantastic start to Jantastic. I have to admit it works. I hadn't done a double this week but did it today just to get 100%.
same here - I had a busy day on Saturday and was shattered. Without Jantastic I would have given running a miss. As it were, I convinced Mr. Chick to come with me on a slow 6 miler. It was actually rather enjoyable right, that's 10 weeks of base done. Today is week one of P&D - starting 2 weeks early to allow for the inevitable cold that will come and get me at some point over the next few weeks. I love a schedule that starts with a rest day
Bad news Simon
Thanks Ant - I'll give them a try
I'm swimming tonight
Simon - is the heel different to the PF or do you think they are both linked? Exercises before you get out of bed are also good.
Thanks for that Ant. I'll give them a try too.
Glad to hear you're on the marathon bandwagon again Chick.
O4S - have you got over the lurgy now?
Its my baby boy's birthday today. 13.
