SK, I must admit I'm really enjoying the cycling.  Not sure about the 100-miler though, although some folk on the cycling club Facebook group were talking about it.

I'm still a runner at heart though!  The cycling is just filling the gap until I get back to running again, whilst also stopping me going crazy and gaining weight.

I've bought all of my recent purchases through Wiggle - they always seem competitive price wise.

Having a couple of days rest and cake scoffing before Thames Meander on Saturday. See you there Emmy

Good luck for Ireland Shades

Big_G - I try fit in loads of cycling between my runs and I'm finding it helps me with my endurance and the fact I have a 75 mile off road ride to do 2 weeks before Chester. I do enjoy it since it is one thing my Oh doesn't mind joining me..

SK - Chester having a metric marathon on the same day as the standard marathon, so I guess that's 26.2 km?   Their half marathon is in May I think.

Re flip flops, never ever wear them, throw them out, they are the worse thing for your feet.  

Several years ago I was watching a programme about Jess Ennis and she was sobbing as she was going to miss an important event due to injury, her coach was furious with her as the injury (achilles) was caused by her wearing flip flops.   I just Googled achilles/flip flops and indeed a cause and possibly of further foot injuries later on like plantar fasciitis.

Incidentally the fat one that I work with has worn flip flops for years,  both with and without heels and now at 52 she is having serious problems with her feet, combination of her weight and poor footwear.

Big G - It's great that you're enjoying your cycling and stops you going stir crazy.   How do the achilles feel now?

Moore - Wiggle are a great company and speedy service, when you mentioned them I thought why haven't I looked there...so I have and they don't sell Brooks shoes, which I'm surprised at.

No running for me today, rest day and tomorrow to before Sunday's race.   Have packed this morning as leaving for airport almost straight after work.   Flying to Dublin tonight, staying the night in Dublin then bus to Longford tomorrow morning
