Ceasars is an awesome race and Henk is a great Character - Not there this year as My own race clashes but will try to get there again next year.

Great news Daz, Dave Drury mentioned to me last night as we were run/"swimming" back from the City that you might be there after all.


Anyway, 20 miles Monday, hill reps Tuesday, 20 miles Thursday and 30 miles yesterday mean that training is done and dusted and so its taper time for me now

Hope everyone now manages to stay fit and helthy and tht it's not as wet as it was yesterday!

Veggieboy - yesterday afternoon it was very wet over there, both on the higher & lower parts of the course. In some place the track were totally submerged in puddles & mud. Even the cows didn't look too happy.

Also a new fence & stile has gone up just before the clearing to the 5M checkpoint.

All adds to the fun!

Must practice my fence vaulting technique...

Good news Daz

Not much running this week as had a couple of niggles from Ladybower, but will probably stick some miles in this coming week.....

Very quiet on the humourous email front this year

Maybe he really doesn't care about us?!?!

08/10/2012 at 09:57

Maybe he's too busy praying for thunder and hail storms

08/10/2012 at 10:55

Aren't we all?!

08/10/2012 at 11:26
Too busy putting up fences & waterlogging the course for emails I think.

I need my Henk fix....where's the abuse!?

No doubt you will get some if you turn up in a sling Daz!

I did a sprint tri 3 days after the stitiches were out from last incision.  We put x2 large waterproof plasters on, then bound it up with duct tape ;O)  Thinking of kinesio tape on th eback of the elbow to stop me bending it to 90degrees (where the cut will ruck up)

That sounds positive then, how long do you have to keep the stitches in for or does that depend on how fast you heal? A bit of tape solves all problems

Surgeon has already said 2 weeks off (from this Thu), but I'm hoping to get a more realistic figure off the record ;O)  Stitches prob out week after (2 days before Caesars).    Main worry is tripping over and reaching out with my arm.  And of course getting it infected if it does open up.

Good point with regards to tripping as that could make a mess of it!

I find docs are very conservative anyway so off the record you may well get an answer much closer to the one you want...

Popped down today for a lap.  I counted 2 more cattle grids and the new fence, as prev mentioned, just before halfway CP.  Seems a little more overgrown in parts this year (no doubt due to the extra rain we've had), and it's quite wet.  I hope we get a dry spell for a week!

A new fence!!!!!!! The horror.........I'm an elite at falling over fences

Just noticed Ryan Brown and Richie Cunningham are both in the 100.  That will be an interesting battle!
