touie2: Sympathies. I've not run since TT50 - I decided to give my posterior tibial tendon two weeks off and see if that did the trick (alongside lots of stretching and strengthening exercises). After 12 days, there's definite progress although it's still not 100%. I'm itching to get out running again and very aware that it's now only a little over 8 weeks to SDW50...

I have physio later so will know more then but think it might be a ligament sprain, I can't get more than quarter of a mile before it twinges and half a mile before its agony and its made no improvement at all in over a week!!!

touie2: That's very frustrating. Here's hoping for good news from the physio.

Looks like I'm out for the Laverdo, which is a shame as it was going to be one of my A races this year, however with pay cuts, no overtime and my entering The Spine next year I have to be sensible about how I spend my spare cash thus year

Bad news mate. Is it an injury related withdrawal?

No, purely financial unfortunately, I'm planning on racing less this year and doing more self supported stuff

Fair enough. What is on your self supported schedule?

Self supported SDW full length, Taff trail, circular brecons route that works out to about 85 miles, several Pennines recces and I hope to get north of the border at some point

What's this circular route, Lirish?  Sounds right up my street.  I'm doing MCN Black Mountains 33 and 10Peaks Brecon Beacons (long course) which will help me get familiar with much of the route of an epic own challenge I'm contemplating.

Also doing Connemara ultra (road), Endurancelife CTS Flete ultra (complete with estuary crossing), and Ridgeway 85.  I think that's all for this year ...

 

Hope all those with injuries are getting better on this thread.  I'm struggling to recover from a broken collarbone and some temporary nerve damage.  Also the physio now tells me my left shoulderblade has 'winged' (pivoted out from the plane of the back) which would explain why I have got poor articulation at the moment in the left shoulder.

TR it's essentially just the beacons way There's a description on the Brecons park society web page I've just taken the main way points from there. I've done both the MCN and the Connemarathon,both lovely races for different reasons, the Connemara race is all around where I grew up until I moved over here
