SARQ - sorry to hear the knee's still not good. It took my knee about 7 months to recover last year - sorry to be pessimistic! Things take a long time to recover, you just have to give them time. My ribs are still not quite 100%....
Now that's what you call a muddy race! Kwaka's Stockport trail half was a great event. Got 4 in before and then 3 after to get my 20 in. (Ran it as a fast tempo rather than a race and ran with drink and bum bag). I hope SARQ doesn't read this! Canal and woods really muddy. Haven't a clue what time or position I was, but a great way to get 20 miles in!
M6, J8, GBM, OMOC, BT - re: Old County Tops. What are you doing on the Saturday evening/night? I assume we'll finish late afternoon. Are you heading straight home, staying over, having a meal, partners meeting you at the end??? Let me have your thoughts and perhaps we can do something together.
J8 - I'm going to do Kwaka's 1/2 marathon trail race on the MWW and canal on Sunday so may give Saturday a miss or just do a short one. I'll wait to see what you put on here. GBM's away this weekend.
