Bainspj, yeah, you are probably correct. I feel like that in the mornings too. Glad you have found what it is and the calves are better.
CW, yesterday Paula said about 2:30 I think. Shame about the pace, I'm sure it will come.
Lev, sounds a blast, hope you see the improvements and glad the niggles have cleared up
CC2 Nice reps, and seems you were sensible on the 30 k . Hope your right about it being a trapped nerve
DanA, unfortunately to be that good thats what you have to do. Some massive mileage there.
Selbs, yeah the off-piste skiing is pretty good, though I don't get out as much as I should, all this training gets in the way and when its on your doorstep. I always need a few beers when the inlaws are round!!
TTock, lol on the creme eggs. I seem to have a big chocolate craving at the moment so I am steering clear though a lot of bicuits and chocolates were left by the last guests so I am wading through them at the moment.
ON7, sounds nasty, hope you can clear it up.
Wardi, pickled eggs, yeuch! They make me gag just being near them, too much rugby
Tmoth, hope its just a blip
CD, Good 20+
TR, some awesome mileage
Joolska, Sounds busy, annoying when you can't get into your running Steve6, some going to beat Julian.
So things not great here, the knee was very painful to walk on for a few days and is only now not. I think its a bone issue as the bottom of my femur is sore to the touch, though hardly now - not really sure what that means haven't found anything useful on the interweb. The hamstring is a bit worse than I first thought and was sore to the touch and the other was pretty tight. It seems to have settled down now but probably fortuitous to have the knee problem which stopped me running on it. On the plus side the knee and hamstring don't hurt whilst turbotraining or crosscountry skiing so have done one or the other each day since my aborted run. Going to probably try an easy run in a 3 or 4 days to see how things are.
Selbs, as Padams says, hopefully all the pain at the same time, hopefully stronger and better once its all sorted
Padams, re Seb, probably me misremembering must have been 48. Think of the browny points on Saturday
DanA, yeah theres quite a lot of Via Ferrata’s around, been here 10 years and still never done one
PP, good luck at PH
Well the 24 mile run was a bit of a disaster, have another split in my foot. Right hamstring started getting painful at 7 miles, stopped at 8 for a stretch. Was going way too fast as usual, around 7:10, felt OK other than the hamstring. At 15miles hamstring was getting painful again stopped for another stretch, when I set of again the left side of the left knee gave me some shooting pains, tried to rub it better, eventually managed to start hobbling again determined to get to 20 miles then thought wtf am I doing so hobbled (on both legs) back for 19 miles, knee eventually settled down again so I could manage 8-9min miles. Time to take a breather methinks, probably won’t run for a week, should have cut back week weeks ago, you would think at my age I would have learnt!.
RS78, there not, but ant rep I do is going to have a hill in it and my knees seem to be objecting to quick downhill ones
Padams, thanks for looking. We are only there in the winter, work in the city in the summer. But it is beautiful in the summer (not that I ride much), the tour comes through here every 2 or 3 years.
SL , 1 miles not a problem, if I was a real masochist its about 5 from the bottom to the top. 1:53 for 20 miles easing off! Wow, a pace I can only dream of. The 1 mile bit has about 340ft of climb so not massive. I do that bit because its relatively car free.
Bainspj, fab to be running again
AL_P, I have to giggle at your 6:20-30 recovery miles. Reminds me of Seb Coe’s easy long runs of 10 miles in 45mins, just bonkers
TickTock, we are about 400m from the top of the Col de la Columbiere in Chinaillon. Glad you seem to be pulling through with the hamstring.
DanA, you can’t play proper darts unless half cut in my experience!
ON7, well done tuffing it out, must admit I am pathetic in similar circumstances.
1 hr on the turbo trainer for me, long run tomorrow, another very very botring 24 miles, most of which is 1/3 of a mile repeats!
