S200H - when you feel lacking in energy at the start of a run it can't be that your muscles are glycogen depleted. But your brain responds to the sugar and that is what perks you up.
mamafox - please don't ever stop rambling, that was a lovely and most entertaining post.
I'm assuming when I go on my trip to Budapest it will be mostly old folk, but you never know.
I don't know what caused my foot to flare up again, but I know I will probably suffer now and then. I did do a bit more Kettlecise last week than usual so haven't done any this week.
Take no notice of McMillan's training paces, they are too fast, stick with your Maffetone which you know works for you.
LOL at sucking the snow off a wall! I hate carrying water too, I take a bottle and dump it in the hedge at about 2 miles and pick it up on the way back, so for a 16 mile run that means I can run 12 without carrying anything.
I've never met a dog called Ralph either.
Chilly morning, light frost but roads nice and dry, getting lovely and light in the morning now, I will soon be discarding the torch. My foot feels a little better which is good news but I've decide to err on the side of caution and DNS Wrexham this weekend as I'm off to Ireland next weekend and don't want to be crocked for that trip.
Emmy - how dare they block the forum at your work! I wondered what you were up to, are you racing this weekend?
SK - I've never seen those birthday candles! I heard on the radio you can buy David Beckham's after shave (RRP £8) in the pound shops for a pound or maybe less with you!
That was a good physio visit you had and very useful info to avoid too much walking. Are you tying you laces differently now to avoid the same spot where the injury occurred?
S3200H - we're not all as tough as you!
Cold and frosty here today, hilly run for me. I was running down a single track country road, in a rural area on the edge of a village and surprised a couple who had brought their wheelie bins up their drive to the road and she was still in her pink dressing gown!
