Have a great time Shades and VR! More than 1 pot?! I struggle with one pot!

Wishing everyone a great weekend, I'll be online until tonight and then I'm off to a cold Paris (predicted 10'c but 3'c at the start!)

have a great time shades and VR!!

well have my runners with me today so going to try a 10 min plod outside at lunchtime.. I know its still niggling but i've gotta test it out a bit or my legs will forget how to run!

Mamafox - That sounds promising, wish I could just click something and be good to go . Will be 4 weeks for me this Sunday with no running, March mileage was 3 !

Good luck to everyone running this weekend ..lost of track of who's running where! but hope it goes well for everyone

Had a good muddy ride on Tuesday and no ill effects from that so I'll do a bit more biking. Heading down to Oxford tonight to see family for the weekend, my mum has one of those treadmill things , so may be tempted to do 5mins which is about all I can handle on a treadmill anyway. I never know whether to do a little bit to try and  strengthen or just a complete layoff from running.

Emmy - won't be there Saturday night as my friend doesn't eat pasta (she's gluten free but also dislikes GF pasta.) Hopefully I'll make it to the Arc on Sunday morning.

Is the lsr for VLM people really 16 miles this weekend? Seems kinda far.
05/04/2013 at 23:00
Khani, I have 14 on the Shades schedule for this Sunday. It's the Level 2 one. Does yours definitely say 16?
05/04/2013 at 23:03
Just checked Shades' original email and both plans have 14 miles for this Sunday...
06/04/2013 at 01:11
Oh yes, 14, 5, 6, 5, 10.. Still feels like a lot compared to some other plans I have seen but I will stick with it I think it's cos I'm just nervous a bit

morning folks.. hope you are all well. This week has been a fery sporadic week for running, had so much going on and the weather i have anly had chance to go out a few times. . Today should be a 22 miler which im looking forward to but i woke up this morning feeling like i gad been bashed around the head with a soggy leg of lamb..I know the general rule is if you have a cold and its abouve the chest then it should be ok to run, but if if below then no. What should i do? i have a bit of a tight chest so i am guessing it has migrated to my chest and im guessing it be advisable to rest but not 100% sure what would you do?

4:02:22 for me in Paris today. Not a PB, but my second fastest marathon. The underpasses got me (among other things). Found it really hard to get up the other side and then pick up the pace. Lots of great French support ('Allez Clare') as the names were on the numbers, and a couple of times when I started to walk I had Frenchmen who'd lived in Aberdeen come & chat to get me going again.

A good day all things considered!

Well done Clag.  Hopefully you and Emmy had a good race!  

As a matter of interest, how long did it take you to get through the start?  It looked like some people took over an hour to get through from what I saw on TV.

well done Clag nice result.

Great work Clag.

Did my 14 miler today, in Sunshine for a change - nice steady run, and enjoyed it. Still found myself going too fast in places - I still haven't sorted proper pacing out - but got a couple of weeks to sort it !!!

Big congratulations Clag. Sounds like a great race with lots of support from the crowd. How many marathons have you done now? Hope you get to celebrate in Paris tonight.

Any news of Emmy?

Toenail advise needed...I seem to have developed a blister behind my second toe. The nail isn't discoloured and it doesn't hurt yet when I run but the toe is slightly swollen and when I press on it I do feel pain. Should I try and treat this or go to a podiatrist or should I just ignore it? I'm concerned that if it's a blister it may get worse unless it is popped...

Nice one Clag. Was supposed to do the 14 mile LSR today but felt really good and strong in the sun so ended up doing a 1/2 with 8:40 splits. Oops. I know it's not as prescribed, (should have been doing 10:00s) but boy, it felt good. Two weeks from now it will all be over..

Wow well done clag!!! Brilliant result Nicely done!
