Minni v Dubai Dave
Come on Barry. All you need is the calf to improve and you'll be tickertyboo. It's all in the bank.
Barry - Nothing like giving yourself a little bit of pressure for next w/end.
Minni - Barry will be ok he just has to stay positive! I'm sure next weekend will be better than he thinks.
Barry - stop being negative & think of the positive - I will be able to find you at the finish!
Yes i have a collection bikes, the ideal number of bikes shall remain n+1.
yep im on the list of Boston entries.
Barry; as 2 old says drink beer
off to the airport
2old - no next weekend. Which is just as well. My calves have been a bit battered (perhaps from wearing racing shoes last weekend? Anyone got experience of this?) and I felt a bit ill yesterday. Off out now and hoping everything is back in order.
2old - I think they ride Dolan bikes, whicis are made up here in the North West. Try this link
DD - I agree, you can never have too many bikes
2old The beers are in the fridge along with the wine It's the Cricklade 10K that I've entered at the beginning of October - there's a HM on too but I don't feel ready yet. Looking for a HM for maybe Jan or Feb time.
After a great swimming training session last night, I ran the YKW this morning naked - not literally as that would have cleared the park! I forgot my Garmin so will have to wait for the official results. My daughter's friend finished not too far in front of me & know her time so I have a rough idea of what mine maybe.
Pink - Any news on your YKW time? How did you feel?
oh hell, the sick bench is getting fuller by the minute poor kiwi Barry: healing vibes to the calf ...
The two surgeons practices were closed already when I phoned them. Friday ... new attempt on Monday. I hope I can get a quick appointment. Luckily the disc isn't protruding very much and I have good posture, a decent enough core and a fcking determined mind. I just have to stop myself from doing too much at the moment or else it may pop out further Boston is on 21 April - so there is a lot of time. Very unlikely to be climbing related -- it is more a degenerative thing that old people get the problem was my lop-sided running coz I ran with a blister from hiking. So my whole lower back was out of synch and then I stretched like an idiot against the excruciating pain hoping I could stretch it out It is getting slightly better though. At least I can turn over in bed without wanting to scream, I can get up easier and I walk almost normally again. Doc said slight movement is good, so I should keep on walking. Walked 45 mins this morning and an hour this afternoon. Ran a few metres too but it hurt.
damn cold, didn't wake up today till 12:30, could have something to do with the wine + night nurse combo i had last night, slept like a log but still feel like shit today!
Barry is Berlin next Sunday? pretty sure i managed to watch it on Eurosports last year, will have to tune in. hopefully the tender calf is just taper madness, at least you will be well rested going into the race + you've got lots of great 20milers under your belt.
2old - i was pleased to be back up to 3 runs a week and back under 10mm, then the holidays ended + i've not run in the last 10 days, stupid work + stupid cold getting in the way!
Pinklady - nice to read how your running is progressing, it is exciting to be entering races as a new runner, have you found out your park run time?
Minni - hope your calves settle, are you still doing your blueberry trial?
Chick how frustrating that you didn't get a doctor's appointment Friday, hopefully you get it sorted Monda
Kiwi- don't worry the cold will soon pass and you'll be soon knocking out 8mm
So had a go on the beach and managed a painful 5 miles at a very slow pace, particularly the first half and the achilles was very sore and tight . Also it was into a stiff breeze. The return was a bit easier. Not sure i learnt anything positive from the experience.
Tri done, great fun. Think were were 3rd club team in the end, so pretty pleased - ran 19:24 in the run, but it only measured 3 miles on my garmin. Off to drink cocktails at a birthday party now. hopefully 10 miler tomorrow morning chin chin
2old - isn't actually worse for the achilles to run on soft surfaces?
Get better soon all you sick benchers
Ant - Great team tri result
Ant - Well done on the tri, still a pacy 3 miles after the swim and bike.
Kiwi - Yeah next sunday. it was definitely on Eurosport last year, I will post my number before I go in case there's tracking available. Plenty of lurgy going round but I think I've just about nipped mine in the bud before it took hold, but felt the remnants on the run this morning.
5 miles for me this morning and felt calf for first mile but then OK, so a bit more positive.
Well done on the Tri Ant
Kiwi Hope the cold passes. Bit worried about the 10k but I have to try it!
2old - The wine was good & I think it helped Barry
The results of the YKW finally came in & I ran it in 28.56 which wasnot as good as last week However, it was the first one I actually enjoyed & felt that I ran it really well.
Out for a 6 miler this morning - not with Barry as he needed to be out on his own & I am really pleased that he is feeling a lot more positive. I'm not so positive as getting worried about not finding him at the end next Sunday! For an ex military lady my map reading skills are rubbish.
Nice one Ant on the tri, you'll be pleased with that!
2Old - sounds like you need to rest that achilles.
Pinklady - you've plenty of time before your 10km and very promising that you really enjoyed your 5km yesterday, the fitness is there now to build on.
Great about Eurosports Barry, can't beat watching a big city marathon on t.v, especially seeing as I'm not currently running any myself!! Good the calf loosened up for your 5 miler today, are you going to have another massage before race day?
