share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
LI, I had MRI before ultrasound for some tricky tendon issues in the leg and the results were very disappointing. Turns out that Ultrasound is excellent resolution but not so in depth. They were thinking about injecting some saline in to improve the resolution but the Dr scanning knew his stuff and found the correct diagnosis after 18months of me hacking round various leech peddlers. I was lucky to have both on health insurance but tbh that MRI was a complete waste of time.
45 doesnt sound much of a calming down tho?!
did anyone from here run past littleton farm on the SDW today dressed in shorts around 3.30pm??? I was freezing having run in 2 merino tops a waterproof jacket, thermal tights and someone looking very professional ran past in shorts???
Nope, not me. I ran a 5+ mile cross-country today in full length Skins and both a vest AND a T-shirt. Some of the other runners were in shorts and crop tops!
hope you find a solution or help for your injury soon Lirish.
i have to admit i havnt worn full length leggings as much as usual this winter-wore shorts other day as was so mild-umheard of for me in winter!!
well done WIB for yesterday next time -dont wake me at 5am
Lirish..i didnt mean like that. hes a good boy
touie2 - I have sealskinz gloves and for me they are great although I have seen lots of reviews by others that say different
Waterproof gloves are a fail fullstop Touie i really suffer with cold fingers and have found they seem to just retain the cold and it is impossible to warm up. I find the thinest cotton gloves work best for me even when damp.
+1 for shorts though.
I use powerstretch gloves (have a Marmot pair at the mo but Mountain Hardwear in the past) and these work really well for me whatever the weather, like Dill I really suffer with my hands - Reynaulds syndrome so they go really yellow and don't work when they get wet and cold. When it's REALLY cold (the first year up here was -12 a couple of times) I wear my pure woollen mountaineering mitts over the top of the powerstretch gloves!!!
And as for wearing shorts - in the last couple of months I have gone from wearing shorts one week to full-blown winter tights the next - blimmin weather, sooooo unpredictable!
... and agree with Slaneuk, avg 45 mpw doesn't sound like slowing down much at all!
Eldred - yes, I bought my La Sportiva Crosslites from them, decent price and arrived really quickly, esp considering some stuff takes AGES to get up here.
perhaps you would find mits better than gloves? Maybe a silk liner and then mits over the top - restriction of fingers is often the problem. For me the rain and wind combo is definitely the absolute worst.
... anyway, will be spring soon won't it, with lots of spring sunshine!!
