Thanks one and all on the best wishes. 48 hours post surgery and all is going well (so far). I'm able to hobble without crutches although I'm taking things real easy.

I'm getting really good at sitting on my sofa with my foot elevated while getting my backside handed to me via Call of Duty on the xBox. Man I suck at shooters.

SD - I'd give the run a miss. Rest up and save the energy for next week.

SD,

When you have a cold/flu, wait until the day you `feel` ready to train/better, don`t train that day but do the next day.  Training when you are not well just prolongs the illness.

SD .. the guys are right
you can do more harm than good at this stage

Rest now and you will benefit next week

SD as everyone else has said rest up. 

A good rule of thumb for tapering for marathons and i dont see why it wouldnt apply to 1/2 M as well is dont run longer in miles than you have days left till the race.

i.e max of 7 miles 1 week before the race, 14 miles 2 weeks before etc.

Evening all

You're a busy bunch

For various reasons, I've had a week with no training at all and it looks as if next week may not be much better, although I'll probably manage a couple of hours of something.  Ho-hum.  I'm just rolling with it, no point in stressing about things outwith my control.  I'm sure the rest will leave me refreshed and raring to go........................

Most certainly Nursey .... now is not the time to be stressing over missed sessions

I read somewhere by some wise person that these early stages are not 'training' they are 'exercise'.  Get out there and do what you can

Tomorrow I am going to play out on my bike with Coach Barlos, I think it could be a chilly one

Are there any nurses on this thread? I'm very poorly...

Scary!

Symptons are pretty bad. Runny nose. Tickly cough. Laziness. Worst of all, last night after a couple of pints and a few glasses of wine I didn't fancy another glass! What do you think? Will I pull through? I haven't got an up to date will. I fell out with a friend from school 20 years ago and I always wanted to get back in touch one day. Oh well. Strange the things you think about when facing the inevitable.....

Is he still alive do we think?

SD, definitely don't run today, you're more than ready for Norwich, and psychologically a shit run today will do you more harm than no run at all.

Oh.

Dear.

I'd get cracking with the bucket list if I were you

Spoons, this being 'off' the wine sounds very serious mate! I'll make sure I drink your share tonight, just in case
