F nice intervals - hope you shake that niggle

HM wish you well, soon

AGF the Thunder Run sounds like a real fun event - nice 10 miler

NP good luck for the tempo run. Hope everything's ok with the arm...


After three days rest the knee is the same, and now the other one is moaning, so I decided to go running instead. 7.64m easy.

NP any word on the X-rays - is the arm healing ok?

Sounds like an interesting race AGF, when is that?

HM4 hope the cough goes soon.

Tired yesterday so did not do the 10 miles as planned, just did 6 but happy with that. Still on target for the week's miles. I think what I eat affects my energy levels so instead of toast for lunch today had chickpeas, tuna, salad, wasabi and ginger.

....and Teknik how were the knees after the run?

Fiona got to go back again next week for another x-ray ,I am hoping that I will get the all clear then and its just allowed to heal by itself.
Teknik get the foam roller out and spend 15 each side.

Heading out for a short Tempo run now.

Its at the end of July fiona......   ww.tr24.co.uk  Perhaps thread team entry

Hope the healing is straight forward NP.

Sounds Tasty Fiona...

Tek - He who dares I agree with NP btw..

A simple 6 miles for me today....

NP - fingers crossed with the arm
AGF- thinking about Thunder Run here too......have to see how it would fit in because recovery would take a while methinks.....

Thanks guys.  I went to the docs today and was told that I've got a secondary infection from a throat infection (which has cleared up) so I've got some antibiotics.


Hi.  How's things going?

You only live once Jason...
Get well soon HM4

Hi Gobi, long time no hear. Hope/trust is all well. How's the cycling going? Are you running?
15/11/2012 at 20:25
6 miles this afternoon with 2 miles at Tempo.
Sorry AGF thats build up time for the World Police and Firefighters games half marathon. Nice running today.
Hi Gobi how is everything going with you?
15/11/2012 at 20:29

Some good running guys.

AGF - Thunder run looks brilliant, not sure I can convince some mates to do it though!


No running for me since Monday, got a bit of a swollen ankle. Nothing serious, but thought I'd give it a rest. I'll likely run tomorrow, and if not Saturday.

So long as it's not "I agree with Nick"

6.25 uneventful miles with group for me tonight.

Quite happy with that after 2 unplanned days in hospital earlier this week (unrelated to running)

Morning all
Gobi- welcome back
16/11/2012 at 08:31

You'll not need a head torch with all those x-rays NP!

Hope you make a quick recovery HM4 and OH. Stuart and Teknik take care of the niggles.

Hi Gobi, I hope life is good with you.

5 miles last night with 3 at 7mm.



16/11/2012 at 08:32

Morning jason!


16/11/2012 at 09:03

LOL glowing in the dark now Fiona  Morning...Nice running 3 at 7mm.

OH nice running hope everything is ok.

I am fat and slow running 10-20 miles a week. Ankle, well I live with it but it will never be perfect.

I am still doing some coaching so just popped in as I had a message from someone.

Take care

16/11/2012 at 12:43

Popping in to say its good to hear from Gobi!  I was just asking Spoons about you a couple of weeks ago and he said you were not running much but doing really well with the cycling. 

I enjoyed following your Forum Six thread when you mentored.


16/11/2012 at 13:29
Popped in because of mentoring to say I can't this year as I just don't have the forum time anymore.

I'm gone again

Take care everyone :??)

ps. remember rest is your friend and an ignored niggle can turn into a major injury. Don't make the arrogant mistake I did and think you are invincible as trust me. Rest is a better option than telling people you are a retired 2.30s marathon man who now does a bit of jogging due to injury. Just gives the non runners a chance to bitch that running is bad for you.

Look after yourself Gobi... and thanks for the very solid advice....
