Great report Susan - really enjoyed reading it. How did the filming go?
Yay Susan! You are a superstar helping everyone round. Looking back, hangover gone, sleep had, did you enjoy it? Monday sounds EXcellent
Dave - your mojo will be back - you're just mentally cream crackered after marathon training. Give yourself permission to not run and just don't worry about it. But if you don't come to Gosport you'll have ME to answer to.
On that note - off to see if I can run for two hours without stopping in preparation for Gosport. Wish it was a bit less lumpy around here.
susan I willlook up them photos..
dave sorry to hear about your run,hope you make gosport though, you will be introuble with Iron hen....
do you have a link susan, cant find anything
oh dont worry Wabo - when I get some I will post them on facebook.
yes Lou its a lovely course - it was hard with the emotions and expectations of everyone and helping others etc .. but the course is a nice one... (Nice one I should say .... )
Checked out the pictures ss your mate needs to get some pies down her.....bless ........looks as though she was ready to lay down and die!!!!
Great report Susan and congrats on no. 11 - awesome! I'm sticking at 8 (9 if you count the unofficial one with Blind Dave on his John O'Groats to Lands End last year).
Morning. Or afternoon...
Been in the sea and it wasn't horrid. Sadly the sun waited till we'd got out to put in an appearance. 25 mins today so not too bad.a
Did my 2 hours yesterday but there was a bit of shuffling, a bit of walking up a hill near the end, a bit of mincing round huge puddles and it wasn't pretty. It was prob only about 10 miles . So Dave, I don't know about Gosport being good... but it'll be done.
Slept funny a few days ago and my back just won't uncrick. Grrr.
Hope you're feeling better Ikle - we love you. xx
We all love you Ikle.
Loved the photos Susan, the ones where you seem to be pulling her on, was Shade going to give up? Both of you look great. Very good photos actually.
AH, you ever done any Alexander technique?
I did some classes in the hunt for a cure for my tendonitis, the only exercise I got anything out of really was the resting exercise they get you to do for your back. Really helps when I have any pain or soreness there, whatever the cause. Its a good one to know if you're sat at a desk for hours too.
Google alexander tech semi supine, there should be some. You do sort of a tuck holding onto knees, then let go slowly, 2-3 books under your head, supporting neck. Will see if I can find a clip.
I've got a PDF about it if you want me to PM it. Very relaxing, you can have a nap/ close eyes for a minute or two. or 5-10 mins. Anyone asks, you can say its part of your exercises.
Funnily enough FRC, the only alexander technique move/pose? I've ever been shown is semi supine. I've MET'd my neck a bit but a bit of semi supination might be worth trying to calm everything down. Thanks for offers of help.
ooh susan I have heard of alexander technique and now I want to look up that move for me, thanks
Well... that was an interesting day. Spent most of it with a TV Producer filming in the shop... one day I might be famous
Now I have the decision of either intervals or run tonight... don't much like doing intervals in the dark (no floodlights for us unfortunately on our grass track!) but I'll decide when I get there...I'm easily led!
I ran... it was epic... last mile 6:44
