Just in case you all are hearing the news across the pond, Oklahoma is about 750 miles west of me so that massive tornado (2 miles wide, with winds near 200 mph) didn't impact me directly.  Still amazing.  The town it hit is basically gone and there was a direct hit on an elementary (primary to you?) school.

Just back from the pool - in time to wriggle into my best spandex and back-comb my hair.  Off to see Thunder, Journey and Whitesnake tonight

\m/   rock on nursey   \m/


my left foot is playing up again, it was stiff/sore after a longish run on saturday so i did the whole hot bath/massage/stretch/roller/stretch thingy yesterday and it's a bit tingly/tender today (though on the + side, it wasn't stiff this morning). Have decided to ditch the planned run today and give it another day to recover before pounding the pavement.

Had a good swim last night, off to repeat the hot bath/stretch/massage thingy again, and hopr to run tomorrow.

Will and Frag, hope your aches and pains are better soon.

2½ hour run for me this morning.  Really enjoyed it, despite the return of the wind.  I'd forgotten to charge my Garmin and it was flat, so I used my phone to keep an eye on the time and just ran at a comfortable pace.  How lovely it was not to be looking at the numbers.

Good running Nursey. Oh to be able to run properly again. 

My damn calf issue is just going on & on & on & on.

Should we re-name this thread 'Fatman to Cripple'?

23/05/2013 at 22:25


just realised ive done london marathon, swimathon & slateman in the last 5 weeks. Guess that hasnt helped in calf recovery. I get the Grafman out the way then have 8 weeks till ironman so should be good by then. Although due to work redundancy issues & me potentially starting an offshore job i may end up missing Bolton anyway now

Sorry to hear about the work situation SD, hope it all works out for you 

24/05/2013 at 09:23

Hi SD, hope things get better for you quickly?  Would aqua swimming offer the calf any restbite?

I have the delights of a dicky tummy this morning, so I'm thinking I'll postpone my 70 mile bike. Will turbo tonight if things have settled down!

SD, you're a machine.  Look forward to meeting up for Grafman.

Swam 1.2 miles in 45 mins in pool this morning.  That's good for me, hope I can repeat the performance in a lake in 2 week's time (Grafman half)!
