I wonder whether ultrasound on the fluid would have helped disperse it too I thought that was the idea of it to get things moving and repairing!

Touie2 - soudnds very preferential to having the begeebers scared out of you by a needle that looks like it was designed for Elephants. If it flares again will be asking for that first!

Rosemary... How did you get on today? I saw someone wearing tribal type rocktape on their achilles. Was that you?

Now onto bursitis. I had it in my knee back in april. After seeign the physio I was told I coudl still run but to stretch my hamstrings well (3 times a day) as they were part of the problem and to ice it after each run to prevent any inflamation from the training. Obviously you will require a different stretch to me but the icing would still apply I guess? I am no doc so obviously a sports physio would be better than me

afternoon all....and WIB , a big well done sunshine, you are too modest.;)

THE ULTRA RUNNERS OATH : one hand on  The North Face catalogue:

I, do Salomonly swear to finish my ultra, let us not linger at the aid stations,

lead us not into temptation to go under the 12 m/mile or unmarked courses

but deliver us from the evils of road races and tarmac,

for shotbloks are the power and the trail is the glory

for ever and ever......

Nice one Lou,..But wouldn't we be better of using Relentless forward progress held in our right hand ?...Best buy of the day, Why We Run A Story of Obsession by Robin Harvie,bought for £1.99 from the works book shop in Doncaster

22/09/2012 at 19:31

Daytrekker, we could indeed hold RFP in our hands to vow

22/09/2012 at 19:32

22/09/2012 at 19:45

That's the one ,only read the first chapter so far,and thought Ive been there and done that,[taking a wrong turn and getting lost].looking forward to sitting down to read more latter

22/09/2012 at 19:48

I couldn't get into that one - ended up giving it away...

22/09/2012 at 21:09

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...i havnt read the whole book i just read a fascinating chapter that was in the Telegraph magazine last year...it really just captivated me, so much that i ripped out the article and ket it...

22/09/2012 at 21:14

I'm sure that's the one - I swapped it for something else about a year ago... I know, Run Like Hell - by Matt Beardshall, which worked out well as I then got to know him online, and went for a run with him earlier in the year!

Phew, what a weekend!

WiB, seriously,  you are a SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!!!!  I cannot believe that you managed that course in 3.30 and I think you are amazing, I realised after the first lap that even sub-5 would have been a real achievement for me and my road pb is 3.40.  Jesus, my quads are grumbling today.  I can honestly say that this was the hardest marathon I have done - Beachy's not as tough, because the hills are spread out and short and sharp. 

23/09/2012 at 17:03

Lou, loving the ultra marathoners pledge of allegiance

23/09/2012 at 17:49

WiB yes, I had the tattoo style rock-tape.  Alastair, I also wore compression capris and thankfully I didn't have any problem with the bursitis, but it does seem as though as it's a fairly common problem - another one to work one!!!!

Cheers Rosemary Well done for getting the job done. Some running in the Lakes has taught me to look after my quads! It was a tougher course than I expected. I loved the run through the forest though. Shame it was only a short bit. Good fun though.

I did see you on one of the laps then running along the bottom part after dropping down the first hill at the start of the lap just before crossing over that little road. You had an inov8 bag on too I think? I had my ultraspire vest and a hand held bottle. Shame I didn't spot you at the start or before to say hello.
