I have fairly small wrists and my 110 fits no problem. The only difference with the so-called ladies version is the bit of pink thrown in cos that's what we ladies like - who cares if it fits etc etc ????
Completely agree with the importance of distinguishing between being too hot or too thirsty and not something I thought about too much before - hope everyone was ok, unfortunately not the first time I've seen CPR going on near the finish of a race this year and sadly the first casualty was not so lucky. We head off to a race assuming we'll be back home in one piece and it is quite disturbing seeing so many people in distress.
Can't see me ever pushing myself that hard mind you!
A lot of casualties at Ealing half on Sunday too, one pretty serious near the finish - unseasonably warm weather and lots of 'undulations' maybe catching people out. Not exactly the challenge of a marathon but still a reminder to respect the distance.
I am a small tall with very long legs and nothing fits which I never miss an opportunity to grumble about ... My best buys have been Sweaty Betty (ludicrously expensive but wait for the sale) and H&M children's, age 14 girls running tights are about a size 8-10 and fantastically long. My posh 2Xu compression tights (special birthday treat) size small/LONG are not that long at all. I believe Under Armour come up long so I might try them next.
Hi Tom, I also wish you well. Like Constable I was diagnosed with breast cancer, 3 years ago age 47. Like you was in the peak of health. Double mastectomy, lymph nodes out, then 5 months of chemo (FEC) and some very short slow running. Without a doubt running kept me going, it was something else to focus on, my first tentative run was fantastic, for the first time in months I was something other than a cancer patient. My fitness undoubtedly helped me cope physically and mentally with the rigours of cancer treatment. Running also helped shift the focus for recovery which is a difficult time, the assumption that you are 'getting back to normal' ha ha, but getting back to running and racing, that was a much more tangible goal.
Like Constable I race a lot more now (very slowly!) including two successful VLM ballot entries in a row - retribution, somehow.
Good luck and keep spreading the word. It takes courage to 'come out' about the less savoury realities of treatment. I feel truly lucky that my cancer was in a part of my body easy to isolate and treat. Cancer treatment is still largely a matter of cutting off, frying or poisoning. But early diagnosis is ABSOLUTELY key, get ANYTHING suspicious checked out, if it is cancer it's not going to go away.
