Seem ok so far Lou... I actually need to do some running in them though and got a bit of a sore knee at the moment so taking a couple days off.

two very underused tools in our armoury are "rest" and "cross-training"

 both are good as it's so horrible outside maybe I should just put a film on and do core stability stuff

Well I ended up at the cinema with a film feast instead oops!!! Did manage to do 4 flat miles after though, amazing how fast you can run after a litre of coke

The only time I drink coke is during races... Don't think I could manage a liter in one hit.

21/11/2012 at 16:09

Have to say cola takes a whole new dimension for me on ultras. Think I drank 3litres on the ridgeway! Don't think the shaking up in my pocket helped much tho

Looks like my injury and health worries are behind me.   The question is can i get my fitness up to run the Malvern 80 miles by beginning of May!

21/11/2012 at 19:09

Well Im starting from about 15 miles for my long run so a long way to go!

21/11/2012 at 19:14

21/11/2012 at 19:19
