Better than it was, thanks. I can stand up now, just not straight!
Heat pack and some very gentle exercises seem to be helping a wee bit.  That and whisky.

Hope you had a good one Rafi. You're on the up Nurse!

After yesterday's run my ankle is sore this morning. Just walked the kids to school and back and it is easing (though still clicking loudly), and some pain.

Another week off?

Since I have lots of time on my hands at the moment, I went back and started reading this thread from the beginning.

I am sitting here giggling at how adamant I was that I wouldn't be doing IM until 2014.

By state of my head this morning, I feels like I had a pint for everyone on this thread!! But 1 hours spinning this morning (bike, not my head ) then half hour in the pool seemed to help - not sure the hours massage did though - I think it just released all those nasties back into the blood stream!!

I think news of our patented bottle shopping trolley dump must have spread, hence Outlaw selling out so quickly

Picked out a quite hilly 9.8 mile loop to use regularly to test my biking speed.  First effort: 34:39, ave 16.9mph. It's a bit 'up and down' with one short, sharp out-of-the-saddle hill.  Hope to see some improvement soon!

Rat happy barf day !

Hmmm think a bench mark ride sounds cool I might get one of those, think I have a short sharp nasty hill nearby which would be useful
