(((((O4S))))) I'm so sorry. What bad news but your positivity always shines through. Please please look after yourself.

SS - great news about your run tonight. Well done. I dunno how you run in that heat though
20/03/2013 at 19:50
Carter - where abouts is your knee pain? Massage and foam rolling the ITB should relieve a lot of the pain. Do you have pain just running or all the time?
20/03/2013 at 20:00
(((O4S)))- you are one tough lady! Lots of virtual hugs to you. Hope you manage to get it sorted in time for or after the VLM. Take care of yourself.
Sheep- yay, can't believe how quickly you've improved- so so happy for you and very glad to hear you're not suffering in the heat as much as you did the last time round. Just pls pls leave the heat in Dubai!!!

The stretches are going ok- yawn. Currently covered with frozen peas and praying to the shin gods for tomorrow

(((O4s))) Really sorry about the news today. Puts my moaning about crappy revision into perspective. Let's hope the surgical team can work around VLM

((O4S)) - big hugs. Wll blue stitches not get you a blue start championship place?

20/03/2013 at 20:48
O4S - (((((((())))))))), I'll come on my bike and give you a real one if you lived a bit nearer.

2old - From Minni's previous post, I'm on my way to 'shitsville Arizona'.

Carot - If it's PF, as Ant said ball rolling on your soul, or should that be sole. But complete rest has worked best for me unfortunately.

Bro - You need those 110% compression clothing, where you can wear calf guards with built in slots for ice packs on the shins, and then you can carry on with the hoovering (only joking)

Tonight was a gruelling 90 minutes gym session. Absolutely f***ed now. Everything aches too.

20/03/2013 at 21:39
O4S ((())). You are such an inspiration to all of us the way you stay positive. Look after yourself.
20/03/2013 at 21:57
O4S- mega hugs !!! Another ultra you're going to crack. ((())))

Thanks everyone - you have made me feel all warm and fuzzy [although that might have been the wine

Spoons:  loving the blue chamionship start

Simon:  careful, with Mr Z and Daren gone missing I might have to pup my age limit.....

Minni- I can't stop laughing, this is halirious and so true!))

Minni - lesson learned and I consider myself told off There will be no use of the word superior or inferior from now on in (I am new, please forgive me)!

O4S - I have everything crossed for you and sending positive thoughts...

Free - not sure about Cranleigh really. Being a Cranleigh virgin, I was thinking 15 easy with a push on the last 6. What are you thinking?

1m warm up, 5 x 1m reps @ 6:35s yesterday with 400m recoveries and 1m warm down. 9m tonight at 8:20s

My little boy's 3rd birthday tomorrow so have taken the day off work and will run when he's at pre-school!

Minni - I've already got that one in my favourites on YouTube, brilliant.
May I first apologise for this post. It made me smile last week when you mentioned about being inundated with requests for sponsorship, but I've had this in the pipeline for a few weeks, but just needed to get it finalised.
A few years ago, before I meet you lot, I ran Blackpool marathon for charity in memory of a friend who worked as a volunteer for North West Air Ambulance (NWAA). Coincidently he died suddenly of a heart attack aged 44.
Last month was the 3rd anniversary, and I've been looking to do another challenge. As I can't run at the moment, I thought about doing 42k on a rower, but I think even if I did 100k, it still wouldn't get people's imagination going.
So I've decided to do a bigger challenge this year to hopefully beat the previous total of ??1900. So I've entered a charity bike ride called rideuk24 on June 8-9. It starts at midday on saturday 8th, and finishes at midday on Sunday 9th.This involves riding 250miles from Manchester to London in 24hrs (hopefully). I expect there will be plenty of pain involved, especially from my backside, but it's for a good cause NWAA again.
I've just set up my website: , and info on the ride is:
Any support is welcome, but please don't feel you have to donate, as I'm hoping to get most of the donations from work collegues. If you do thou, I might put up a photo of me walking like John Wayne afterwards on Facebook.
Oh, and Minni they even do one in August, 300miles, Newcastle to London if you fancy it!
So that's what I'm going to be upto for the next 11.5 wks. Any tips from veteran endurance bikers welcome, O4S, KFC, DD, Mr Z.
Now where did I put my anti-chafing cream?

Simon - great cause and the very best of luck with all the training (and chafing)!

Minni - never seen those videos before but, I came very close to pissing wetting myself whilst watching them! Thank you...

20/03/2013 at 23:19
Minni - love the video
Simon- excellent challenge. Suggest you put a bike seat on your ergo too
Blade- welcome to the Minni naughty step. We've all been there. Like your time management around the birthday . I used to do similar around swim lessons, rugby training ,drama lessons....miss those days
O4S- better send a search party out for those missing kids
21/03/2013 at 04:56
Minni, love that video!

Blade, nice mile reps. You need to get a picture sorted for your avatar

Simon, count me in for some sponsorship. Can you post a reminder in May please as I start my job in April so will have some cash by then.

Rest day for me today. My run last night cheered me up massively so I am going to have a good revision day today. Honest. No, really, I am.......!!
21/03/2013 at 06:38
Simon - count me in. For the sponsorship that is, not the Newcastle to London! Looks like a great challenge and a great thing to do in memory of your friend.

SS - revision sounds so boring but the run sounds good. And heat?! What is that???

Blade - love the fact you've taken the day off for the boy but its really to fit your run in!!

We can all identify with the chap in the clip but that woman is a bit mental, eh?

"I am a marathon runner, I must run"
