I think three pregnancies and births has caused me to shed any sense of modesty in front of health care professionals and whipping my knicks off doesn't phase me any more. It might if someone was going to do something with my bum without asking first though, Marrows
Still not sure about whether to do Cov. It will either be to just do it at LSR pace as a social thing, or if my legs feel ok on Saturday I might do first half at LSR pace and the second (downhill) at tempo pace to get that horrid 7m session out of the way. Or I may not bother.
Bob - Cov half is a different route to last year I believe - or at least they've extended the city centre section. Won't be way out though. Good session too.
Mace - Your talk of sleep repulses me. I don't think I've had a good nights sleep since some time in 2007. Not even joking.
Lit - I know you talk sense re: doing Cov BUT physio agreed I could do 13 which I might as well do in company. I'm going to see how I feel on Saturday I think before making the call. I def won't race it though. Warwick in a few weeks can be my target half.
Tested the legs out with a 6 mile recovery run last night. Felt stiff and creaky but all over rather than just in problem areas which I'm attributing to a few days off. Afterwards everything felt the same, no worse. Stretched and strengthened. So today tried out an 8 with the buggy as had a few errands to run in town. Looser today and all felt reasonable - still some discomfort in right knee but nothing major and not affecting my gait. Physio reckons it is a case of managing it anyway. Have iced and feels ok now. Will rest tomorrow.
I'm doomed then, having been blessed with a fine pair of childbearing hips. Got the foam roller on my calves last night and very nearly made myself cry. Certainly remembered why I don't like it. Going to try a gentle few miles tonight to see how it feels - will have had 4.5 days off.
Evil Cov won't let me give my number to Lou . Pondering whether to just do as a training run. Will wait and see how things develop this week I think.
