booktrunk - so nice of you! I hope you make it there one day. You certainly deserve it!
BK Canter - yep, I'll be there along with Roger (who did sub 3 last year) and Ady and Sarah who were finalists the year before. We'll be there to answer any questions you might have about the process and what you can expect should you make the final 5.
Gingermagic, Moustachioz - I'm pretty excited too and I'm not even in the competition!
Andrea - 2 years ago it was a buffet lunch but last year the lunches were all in individual bags. That was much better and meant you could have a little nibble beforehand then save the rest for after the track.
At least you're pretty good with getting treatment, self administered or otherwise. I'm improving on that front in that I'll now do more stretching and rolling but bathing in epsom salts is a foreign activity to me
Jogette went well thanks. 3 miles in about 25 mins so a decent pace and no pain, just the feeling that there might be at some point - sure you all know what I mean
I deliberately stopped at that point and it felt fine. However as it cooled a bit of discomfort crept in. I reckon that says quite clearly that this is just muscle tightness. The problem now is easing that tightness out. If I can't manage it by next week by using my various torture devices then I'll be making an appointment with the physio to exchange hard cash for a severe beating
May try a secondary jogette today to see what happens.
