mamafox - good luck with the physio.
This thread has been going a long time now
VR - rather you than me at MK, will be very cold and the weather might be bad for driving home, so take care.
Yes, I can find another race but not a road one in the UK, might pop over to Newry but wanted to try and avoid another expensive trip. I might have to look at an off road one, could do the 100 Club AGM one but that's off road and in Croydon, so not keen on that.
shades.. i would go for warmth too!!
physios best punt is that its nerve pain from my back, the sciatic nerve going into the peronial nerve I think and its all aggrivated.. oh goody!
Slowkoala - I have found another road marathon and it should be warm......Lancaster on June 30th, or Waterford on the 29th June.
Every time I look at the weather forecast for the weekend it gets worse, but will make final decision about the weekend on Thursday. If I stay home I can cook that turkey that's been lurking in my freezer since November
bootsie - that's good news....not sure how that could have been diagnosed as a potential stress fracture before
evening folks, hope you are all fit and healthy despite the cold weather..
Unfortunately my training has taken a bit of a blow today when i was told by the doc i should avoid excersise for 2 weeks after having a mole removed...i had to have a good laugh at that and i told them i was training for a marathon so not an option, plus im a postie so my job involves a fair amount of excersise...I managed to persuade the doc to allow me to run by the weekend all depending how well the stitches have done their job. I might have a VERY gentle 3 mile jog on thursday to see how it feels before attempting a slightly longer run on friday. oh well i might as well enjoy the feet up chance while i have it..
Put your feet up Iain - it's bloody cold out there - still, at least it's not nearly April !!!!!
Iain - the enforced rest might do your knees and hamstrings some good though. I had a mole removed 5 years ago on a Wednesday and on the Sunday I ran a marathon PB.....of course it does depend where the mole is/was. Mine was on my forearm.
Not quite so cold today as the north east wind has eased a little, had a great run
Iain - I'd listen to the dr. I'm not sure where the mole is but take it easy. You don't want the stitches taking longer to heal than necessary
hi shades, pretty much because it was very inflamed at the same point so a bit confusing really but because he did some work on my back yesterday the whole thing is in spasm today.. foot pain feels irrelevant right now!! shame!
Emmy - how's the hip? Still freezing weather with you?
bootsie - ouch, hope the treatment works
Hi Shades - Hip feels OK. I'm going to give it another day and try a 5 miler tomorrow morning and see how I get on. I can cut back at 3 miles so it gives me some 'cut out' options if needed. I've been trying some different stretches but they seem to hurt my calf muscle!
It's absolutely freezing here It's really not a nice wind as its so cold. At the weekend - it kept blowing off my hat and whilst I was walking to the supermarket yesterday; I was almost blown sideways!
@Bootsie - that doesnt sound nice
Thanks.. me too.. god so bored of not running!!
Good luck with the hip Emmy
Freezing here too.. two pairs of socks on at least long weekend this weekend !

You're so lucky - I "only" get Monday off
It sounds like there is a bit of an injury bench developing I hope everyone gets better soon.
Shades - I think I'm only 1 or 2 miles up the road from you and it's very lightly snowing here, and feels very cold.
Club session for me tonight. It's either 5x1m intervals (which sounds horrendous!) or something called "Team relays with a mystery twist". Hmmm.
I have rearranged my runs a bit this week, and I'm planning my LSR either Thursday after work or Friday AM. You may know that I've drastically reduced my alcohol intake recently...well that's all going out the window this weekend as there is a favourite beer festival of mine in Paignton which I feel obliged to attend
Big_G.. that sounds like fun!!

Now need to take my 6 year old to the dentist to have two teeth removed Poor thing has managed to grow an 'extra' tooth which shouldn't be there. Really hope they come out easily.
I had an extra tooth when I was younger behind my two front teeth. It was hell to get out (I still remember it).
Fingers in ears whilst the talk turns to dentists
Emmy - don't overdo the stretching! Just enough to gently work the damaged muscle so it repairs without scar tissue
I'm sick to death of this cold weather
Big G - there were a few flakes this morning when I was running. Have no windows in our office only Velux roof ones and can't see any snow there.
Mile reps are one for the best sessions for marathon training, so might not seem as bad as you think
Slowkoala - hope the visit to the dentist went OK
Big G - I thought you liked the training sessions at Brunel!!I'm refusing to go to training at night unles it warms up!
