I ask as I'm a kinesiology practitioner so when I see people bandy around rock tape or kenesio tape etc I'm wondering what they are seeing with it

I am not sure if it is placebo, but I am glad it works and I din become over relying on it. I never tape myself again since last july

It's a bit more than a placebo. I'm aware that they try to say it can sort out a multitude of ailments. However, I think it's more specific hence my question. Anything more than homeostasis is just wishful thinking

don't expect any tape to cure you off anything, but it might help you dealing with it

So, to run or not to run the revised TT50? Decisions, decisions. Latest estimate from the organisers is that the revised route has taken 5.5 miles off - so it's no longer a 50-miler. And of course it's now mostly on road (which I could accept), and it's going to be self-navigated with a route description which -  well I can only pray it might mean something when I get there, because just reading it, it's gobbledygook...

Looks like WiBs having a bit of a tough spot, James has moved up a couple of places

WiBs dropped 25 places in the last lap,looks like he's either in knee trouble or he's dropped completely, James is still doing very well

james finished in 10th , Wib seems to have picked up and is on 4th lap on 16 hours....maybe he had a dodgy tum again

WiB finished in 21.53, I know he had some knee problems coming into this and looking at his splits from the second to third lap it's obvious the wheels came off in a fairly big way, hope he hasn't broken himself

Hip, hip hooray, feel like a runner again, after some months of low mileage, I put in a decent shift this week and capped it off with a marvelous mudddy trot our with DAYTREKKER on the Dukeries Ultra course. A cracking little run out complete with a short wade through thigh deep water and a comedy moment when I placed my foot in what appeared to be a puddle only to find it was a pot hole of some depth, waist deep to be accurate. Nothing coffee and Jaffa cakes couldn't fix though.

yes saw he finished in under22 so thats good, but yeah hope he hasnt trashed himself doing so

Tim Bateson and I have just entered events which will make one heck of a back to back weekend in July:

Sat 6th:  Chevy chase - 20 miles, +4000ft ascent

Sun 7th: Coniston trail marathon - 26.2 miles, +3500ft ascent

There are still places in both if anyone fancies joining us? Better be quick though as Chevy Chase will sell out in the next day or so.

Hello!

Is there room for another wannabe Ultra runner in here?

I am hoping to run my first Ultra in 2014, (Cant this year as already commited to two marathons and some other stuff). I was wondering if anyone knows of any Ultra running clubs in the Uk and/or coaches? I am struggling to find any on t'web.
