Minni v Dubai Dave
AA: too early to panic yet
Carrot: 10K, luv em.
Will do club run tonight, then nowt until Sunday. Need to put bike into tri mode and dig out my kit today, havent seen it since we got back but it must be here somewhere.
AA-this is not the time to panic-sleep ,sleep and sleep.Anyway the river will make it easy for you one way at least
Spoons-no reason why a marriage should stop you . Congrats. As a fellow walkimg wonded fingers crossed for a quick recovery
Legs a bit stiff from yestrday but hope to do something this evening
O4S - "Banana in a baguette"??? Hope you're enjoying it?
AA - Don't fret, you'll be fine.
Becs - I think that you should apologise... Fancy getting hitched!!! Congratulations. If your knees are clicking, get an MRI because it sounds exactly the same as my symptoms... Can't ride a bike without clicking/locking etc...
I've just come round from the op/anaesthetic so if I'm talking bol**cks, I apologise. I think that the op went well... I don't appear to have my gonads grafted onto my forehead! Meal was excellent... Chicken Caesar salad followed by ice cream. Must do this again soon... Oh, I forgot... I will be doing this again soon!
Oompa - I had a day in hopital last month and it was lush. Everyone was nice to me and I got tea and toast in bed. Quite jealous you're getting two shots. fingers crossed it works.
Becs - check its not the bike that causing your problems. I discovered it was the bike that was causing a lot of my hip and groin pain.
AA yeah I've done a good few races since VLM, no wonder my legs are stuffed! Relax about the swim, you've done plenty of open water races (was Big Dog not a chaotic mass start?)
Congratulations on the wedding Becs, when was that?
Hope you manage to find the tri kit DD.
Chicken caeser salad Oompa? Private hospital? Love how your priority when you come round (after the forehead check) is logging onto here!
Woo more thread getting hitched - congrats.
Red - yeah it was in Trent Park, so hills abound. I definitiely think sub 20 is finally in reach. Sorry to hear about your dad and job hassles, but new nipper is always good.
Oompa - good to hear the op is done - hope it all heals nicely. I am no fan of hospitals.
Best of luck to the racers this weekend. I have a 10K myself on Saturday (!), but am feeling under the weather today for no obvious reason, so I seriously hope that clears up. Have been doing a lot of swimming recently so may just have water stuck in sinuses/ears. Despite that, I am totally loving the swimming. Am probably going to do an aquathlon on Tuesday as well.
2old - Was potentially planning the Parkrun as part of a longer one but have been in denial of a sore left calf for the past week. Nothing serious and can run on it but getting very tight, been icing regularly but if not feeling right on Saturday will put my sensible head on, bigger picture and all that.
Becs - Congrats. If I don't race it I will support OH, I don't think pacing would work out too well, could see a domestic breaking out, so I will be giving "gentle" encouragement from the sidelines.
i had planned to cycle into work tomorrow, but the forecast isn't too good so decided to swop it to today, BAD decision . I was about 22miles into my ride, when I came across some roadworks that had closed the road, except for a temporary footpath round the side of it, It was fenced off, unlit and still pitch black. Well 1 minute I was cycling along, the next I was on the deck in agony. So after picking myself up and steming the blood from my nose and cheek, I saw the reason. Some scally kids had tied some rope across the path at about 5ft. I caught it across the bridge of my nose, luckily I was wearing some clear cycling glasses, so no damage to my eyes, but if had caught me across the throat, it could of been a lot worse. Anyway apart from the facial cuts/bruises the main damage is to my right shoulder where I hit the deck. Luckily not broken or dislocated, but badly displaced. I phoned International Rescue (my OH ), to come and get my, and took my to A&E back home, I didn't fancy leaving my bike where I was if I called 999. So even less running, cycling for a few weeks, and no work cus I can't drive, with my arm in a sling. Will I go mad watching daytime tv, probably .
Simon - Oh no! Bet you'd like to catch the little shites? As you said though, it could've been much worse and look on the bright side... We can compare notes re daytime tv!!!
Carrot - It is a private hospital that I've somehow managed to get into on the NHS... Super blagger or what! With regards to posting in the recovery room... As I've said to the OH many times... You have to get your priorities straight!
Carrot I had a lovely day off thank you - spent it with my two daughters visiting my parents in home county of Warwickshire.
Becs Lovely news & Many congratulations & I hope you both will be very happy!
2old Decent lunchtime run - now the mornings are darker will start considering a run at lunchtime rather than after work!
Oompa good luck with the recovery - tea & toast was what they gave me after my op & home after two hours to recover from the general anaesthetic!
AA I wouldn't worry too much as you will do well at the weekend. Its the Swindon parkrun & i'm a bit nervous about it to be honest!
simon62w That's awful & dangerous. But as you say it could have been a lot worse. Daytime TV is not too bad & it's amazing how you start to get into the most ridiculous programmes!
Ran 4 miles this morning with one at 9mm so really pleased with that. No running tomorrow as back to swimming training. Parkrun Saturday, not sure if I would want Barry pacing me as wouldn't want to hold him back but i'm sure if he doesn't run I will hear him from the sidelines!
Simon - you poor thing. That sounds awful. Hope you make a speedy recovery.
Ant - hope you feel better for the race.
Barry - take care of that calf. Compression socks, ice, rolling etc. a couple of days rest will do you more good that harm.
Pinklady - what's the target for the weekend?
Carrot - are you racing the 10k?
AA - foot still feeling ok?
Jeez Simon - that is so unbelievably out of order. Hope you heal up ok.
Barry - arrgh, cotton wool time. No running at all is probably best. You have got so much training in the bank already
Pinklady - So which are your favs, please not Jeremy Kyle. I'll be tuning into Jessica at Cabot cove daily. Oh shit I do that already
Simon- The toerags!!!! Cycling is dangerous enough without that. Pity you didn't report it to the police as you might have been able to make a CICA claim for those nasty injuries. Anyway at least you can enjoy daytime tv. Hollywood wives is the favourite in our house. It wasn't in Kirkby? I ran down a similar road there tonight and after answering a kids polite question of how far I'd run so far- 10.5 miles he shouted 'you fookin liar" charming
Ant- any of your swimming in open water? Our local ones have closed now ...pity it's not as cold as it was in April when our started but it is getting darker in the evening. I found I got bored with swimming after about a mile unless I was doing intervals in a group session
Pink - nice run ...are you swimming for tris too?
Minni- whats your plan from now until GNR?
Barry - very wise to be cautious. Wasnt it your calf that gave you problems in the past?
decided to get out and try a LSR tonight as conditions seemed perfect. No set plan but just kept going for 20miles . It got a bit untidy at the end but overall 8.07mm average. Legs and achilles feel battered as they should ....first 20 since March
2old - No, not scoose scallys, Ashton in Makerfield scallys lol
Simon, what a nightmare. There are some stupid dangerous idiots in the world and it makes me cross when they take out other people. Hope you recover quickly.
Simon- it's not safe to go out on any of the roads round here
Simon - wah at a nightmare. Hope you recover soon
pink - good luck tomorrow.
Barry - don't take any risks.
Minni - is GNR 2 weeks on Sunday? Are you tapering for it?
i had physio on my foot again yesterday. It's actually feeling the best it's felt for a while. I'm doing all the right things.i think I'm going to have to cut down on the anti inflammatorys tomorrow though as they're beginning to affect my tummy Fingers crossed it will hold out. Just hope the rain isn't too heavy as predicted today As I don't know what effect that will have on the river on Sunday!
AA: relax! What time are you aiming to register, rack?
Simon: Bloody hell, glad i live in rural Wilts / Dorset, not many toe rags around here. Enjoy the TV
Woke up to find out that a friend and Triatlete was killed whilst out riding his bike in Dubai this morning, not a good start to the day.
went to speedwork last night, tough stuff but you feel so good at the end! Still havent dug out tri gear or readied bike, better get on with it!
2old - yeah I've done 1 open water swim in London, our lake is open till October I think - part of the Broxbourne white water center for the Olympics - I think it may even be floodlit. I haven't done enough swimming yet for it to get boring! I am just enjoying gliding along the water.
Simon - I agree with 2old, you should definitely report it to the police because something like that could actually kill someone.
