Hard core FIDO But agree with others you know you can do the distance so take care. Although AH would be better to ask, Fields hill is VERY tough on the legs and feet after 60K . With your injurys have you decided to go for a finish or Bronze? Im counting the days till you go. So wish I was going back. O well knowing SD as soon as he gets home he will set up the new thread and then

FRC- 2010 was 5 at the start 24 by the end!

I made a mistake yesterday and did finished my legs off,they are now completely trashed not doing Leeds Half next sun now and haven't entered a single other race yet which feels weird. Also came down with a cold thurs...felt v poorly with it fri,better yest morning hence thought I'd try parkrun but now feel horrific again,all hot/cold and feverish so may just stay in bed all day!!

Fido - wow,well done on the 50k and how exciting that it's nearly time to goo again!!

Go go Wabo with all the biking,well done you.

Ikle - hope your run cures that hangover

Martin, of course I would love a bronze but I don't think it's likely. My right leg got jealous of the left and has been playing up, but I think it's the sort of thing that rest doesn't do much for. But am doing lots of massage, icing, blah blah.

I would just like to finish feeling I did the best I could on the day.

Fido- Everyone feels like that on the day as long as they beat the gun! Sounds like you have the right attitude but then you always do.

Tu-Tu- Do I shout at you or admire your attitude both I think.

10 miles this morning nice and easy by the canal. No watch made me rememeber what running should be about. BLISS

Tutu - sometimes you just need a bit of lounging around to recover!

Susan - that sounds nice.

You are running well Martin .... What's your next race / run apart from 2013 comrades?

found a couple of 10k in the next month then start to build for mablethorpe marathon in october.

Ran our local hospital 10k yesterday -after two weeks of not running - aim just to take it comfortable but not too comfortable - followed a lady in a green vest most of the way round and managed a respectible 47:01. Still not happy as felt faster and one of my club rivals was a minute faster. Got another 10k today and not sure my legs will manage it.

Morning all. Can't believe you marathoners even feel like running!

Fingers crossed for fido's feet. Time to focus on her cos her big race is next up!

Busy weekend so far. Kayaking with pirates on Sat which was fab. Def going to do more of it. Longish bike yesterday. Actually, it's not a busy w/e at all. Swam with J this am. He wants to do lots of tris when exams have finished. Hoping his wetsuit still fits cos can't afford to buy him another.

Have enjoyed my recovery week... But need to get my head into gear to ramp it up again. Its so easy to get out of the habit of training hard, isnt it? Am aiming not to taper for Mallorca this w/e but will be quite hard to fit it all in.

New look to the thread! Not too bad except they seem to have lost the "last post" link where you could pick up from where you left off.

News: I did a gentle two mile run yesterday. Left hip was a bit stiff but no reaction today so I'm quite pleased.

07/05/2012 at 22:17

Thanks very kind. Did another 10k today and managed to go a little bit faster at 46:45 so heading in the right direction.

Good news Howard.
