Em, try Daniel Wischer (Spitaler Strasse). That's just across the road from Hauptbahnhof. You can Google it, I'm sure it comes up. It's more like a fish and chip place, albeit restaurant stylee with tables and waiters. Most of the dishes are with batter, but it's quite delicious beer batter and the fish is rather nice. It's quite traditional but be prepared for grumpy service. All part of the charm apparently if they have, ask for Goldbarsch. That's the best fish you can get there
If you have more time and money to burn, the best place is the Fischereihafenrestaurant in Altona. It is on the expensive side but well worth it. Never had a bad meal there and the service is fantastic. It's not chi-chi or uber-posh either. Just an all-round good dining experience.
Morning all, quick check in as I have a few days off
Em, excellent news!! Hope the news job brings less of a commute with it. Great stuff to have a choice
I have a looong weekend (yesterday + today and then Monday + Tuesday too) so we decided to spend a few days by the sea and won't be around tomorrow :-/
Tried to run but didn't get further than half a mile before the pain came back. More patience required. I do a bit of cycling instead but it's not the same as running and too much time in the saddle aggravates my back. Bah, getting old sucks
Still no running here but I've been pain-free every morning since the WE. Went for a nice walk by the river last night. Sometimes I forget how beautiful it is down there when I try to hit arbitrary numbers on my Garmin, completely oblivious to the fact that running is also about enjoyment.
Annual blood-letting today to establish iron levels, thryoid hormones and the like.
I may chance a short run tomorrow ... see how it goes.
2old/Barry: I'm following the Alfredsons protocol in search of relief. Google it. There's lots of YouTube clips around. Got the tip from another long term sufferer over on the daily training thread. Make no mistake, this HURTS and no way I can do 180 reps per leg!! But even with less reps it seems to work. This morning I had no pain when I got up. First few steps usually really hurt. Fingers crossed.
