Like shooting fish in a barrel..................
I cant eat creme eggs unless someone eats off all the chocolate shell first
thats tricky, doesnt the white stuff go all over the place..............
Im back finally running after my injury, chest infection and my head being up my arse,
Plans at the moment are Malvern on 4 May and Cotswalds century 21 Sept.
Do you think I could handle a couple in between?
Spen, I don't see why not. I'm planning Thames Trot 50 (2nd Feb), SDW50 (13th April), NDW50 (18th May), Lakeland 50 (27th July), Ladybower 50 (22 Sept).
Of course, first I have to allow my left ankle to heal. I've been really good so far - this is my fifth day of not running - but now I'm really getting twitchy. I should be running a cross-country for the club tomorrow (and doing a really nice mostly-trail run of 11 miles or so with the club on Sunday). I know that given it's possibly a stress reaction in the medial malleolus (my diagnosis, basde on location of pain etc.) I have to return to running carefully or risk a full stress fracture and 6-8 weeks off (and today's the first day I've not been supporting it by bandaging), but part of me thinks maybe I was over-reacting and feels guilty about not taking part in the cross-country when the club needs me.
Got to choose a couple for in between. Summer is a bit light on ultra!
DON'T do the x-country Debra, your club will survive and there will be more of those races ... whereas you want to be back running so if you have to run, do something you can control the pace and terrain!!! It's so not worth it
Spen - I would have thought so, but obviously depends on how you fare after the Malvern. I am hoping to do Highland Fling 53 at end of April and West Highland Way Race late June, with a potential for UTMB at end of August but whether the body will hold together, who knows!! Hopefully Dee 33 in March too.
You could do some non-ultra distance Spen - shorter trail stuff, keep some focus going without overdoing the distance.
cragchick: thanks for the encouragement to be sensible - seriously. I know I'd be absolutely kicking myself if I did the XC and ended up with a full stress fracture. I might try a short, gentle run on grass tomorrow, if my ankle is okay after standing around at my parkrun, driving, then cheering on my team mates at the XC. My head knows that if I'm sensible I can probably lose less than two weeks of running, and increase the distances again quite quickly, and do my ultras etc. next year (including XC for the club in Jan & Feb).
And note to self for future: if you're THAT tired, making your running form THAT bad, don't run!
A 50km Fat Ass in the morning for me a few people tracking the HM30 route for the 01/01/2013
As of right now trying to improve my nutrition (ie banning myself from drinking!) as it starting to affect my performance! Aiming to take down my PB in a spring marathon. Just the small matter of compelting the HM55 route about a month before my marathon
Rofl LI - we'll all expect to see you there with the Kenyans
I wont let you go down in shame alone Lirish... I have just signed up for Amsterdam marathon. There I said it!
Decided to sort out my marathon PB, hopefully run a championship qualifying time of under 2:45 and probably never use it! haha It will top off a season of long trail races.
