Frags is in the wars again... I don't suppose you happened to see my wife & kids in A&E did you? Seems they were there today too.

Heal well (again!)

Feeling distinctly at a low ebb today, maybe because I know it's going to be a poor training week (lots on with family and a weekend at a writing convention).  Could also be because I watched an hour of the Boston tragedy last night.

Determined to get out for a run later.  Some mornings I just can't seem to get out of bed...

I'm with you Tim. Too much Boston coverage here. Watched a video of people looting race gear in the middle of the wounded last night that made me want to vomit. To top it off, I get to say goodbye to my uncle today, the only father I've ever really had.

Fraggle, concussions are no joke. Make sure you take it easy and also get a new helmet.

(((Yank))),  a tough day for you.


My turbo wheel appears to have a slow puncture, so that's some tube changing practise lined up.

IronDonkey - am mentoring a couple of people for the first time this year. One remotely and one locally. No idea if I'm doing it right, will know more in August but it's been a fun experience and one that I'd be happy to repeat.

Sad time IronYank ... Take care

Thanks for the support!  At a hotel in an area I don't ever run and went out to run to clear my head and such. Ended up running right past the funeral home.  I don't think it was an accident.  I'll be remembering the good times today.

16/04/2013 at 15:00

IY, condolences.  But yeah, remember the good times.

fraggle - hope you have recovered

All the best Jeff, thoughts are with you.

Not much to comment about Boston, words just fail me. Thoughts with the victims, families and friends.

The looting thing has just peeved me off even more, how low can people get.

Not doing any training myself this week, hoping to get legs right for sunday. Feeling fat, lazy & demotivated today

Good training Will & Melds
17/04/2013 at 08:06

Andy, I'm having a very light week too, partly cos of lots on, partly feeling a bit washed out.  But as my splendid mentor said, it'll do more good than bad!  

Good luck for the weekend mate.

Cheers pal.

Calfs are feeling a lot better today, although one now has a nice bruise come up. I think from a bit too much hard rollering.

Will stop that now and just continue with deep heat and gentle massaging now. Also going to stop taking Ibruprofen, been on it pretty much constantly for 3 weeks and think it's causing some stomach aches now
