Minni v Dubai Dave
O4S - Hope you recover from your wasp sting. Ba's plan with the wasp sounds simpler than my elaborate cycling accident and op organised for the day before my OH's b'day.
O4S: BA is clearly a genius, top work
Chick: all I can say is that it could have been worse.
2Old: i have the one and only tattoo i will ever have.
kfc: hope your feeling better today
last nights club session was a lot of Fartlek & sprints, i was glad to be finished! Today was 2 hours on the bike incorporating two of the three big climbs around here, i must like pain.
off to Gran Canaria tomorrow for work, back Tuesday. Warmth!!!!!
will grow some hair on my chest and get one myself.
next step for me is a Neuro surgeon to perform injections under a CAT Scanner. they should kill the pain and convince the disc to go back to where it belongs.
i asked my doc today about running ... he said several months. no fcking way - few weeks is all i'm prepared to lay off. i have Boston to run
enjoy the sunshine DD
(((Chick))) you poor thing. That sounds horrendous. When do you see the Neuro surgeon?
Chick - I hope you get your disc sorted. When's Boston ?
DD - How are you enjoying the wind and rain and hills, compared to being sandblasted in Dubai ?
Chick- Sh!t your getting worse on each post... Sort it out please.
DD - some big hills to hit there
Simon- wax-he he
enjoying a bit of sun myself- well if you can't run , why not
Chick - ouch! did you find out whether it was a climbing related injury?
O4S - wasps! there has been a spate of stings this year. Pesky stripey buggers
Freemers - minni will have you doing 15 miles in the Cheviots!
What a faff this tri lark is - just spent nearly 2 hours converting my commuting bike into a lean mean racing machine! Wish me luck for my first venture to the dark side
gosh, sorry to read so many are on the injury bank!
Chick - have you had your injections, hope they ease the pain!
Red - nice report about Cheltenham
Spoons great running from you + gf on your relau, sounds like a fun event!
SImon - hope your shoulder mends, 5 weeks of no activity, you need to get some good box sets to keep you entertaind.
2old - this hasn't been your year for injuries
O4S- ouch being stung on the lip by a wasp!
i am on the sick bench, got a nasty cold from all the dirty germs floating round at school, always happens after the summer hols, so zero running here this week.
Ant - good luck for your tri.
Kiwi- this IS my year of injury!Not u on the bench too? There's not enough room
O 4S - that was some brave wasp! Get the antihistamine in action you've got ultras to do
Ant - how did you do that to a mountain bike ?
2old - i have a road bike and 2 mountain bikes
Chick - Sounds serious, make sure you recovery fully.
2old- If I don't nail Berlin I think I will have to find another hobby/obsession/addiction, well maybe until next spring.
Not sure if last night's sports massage made any difference to my calf, very tender compared to right during massage but glad I had it done. But I am officially descending into taper madness:
Checked training log and have n't run over 10 miles since 2 Sep, and total miles for Sep is 20.
I am developing a cold which I am battling with First Defence and Vit C.
I keep checking weather for Berlin for next weekend and currently 24 degrees.
But means my legs with be fresh and I have competed 8 x 20milers(or more) during training and have already had one PB this month
Better to have the cold now than next weekend.
Can't do a lot about the weather.
Plan is to run 5 on Sunday, if that goes OK 10 on Tues.
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.
