Morning and thanks all. Yesterday was a rest day so I'm heading out shortly. My runs got up to 3 and a bit miles last week so it's 4 or there about today - heady stuff!
Terry, Boston marathon for a backup race if I'm not ready for Barcelona, last time I was in Boston was on an Audax-chicken something or other in Weatherspoons at 5pm followed by Mc d's in Goole at 1am - I know how to live!
SD - Hi, have you been on the bench? Btw, did Colin who missed out on his green number on the last up have another go this year?
Good morning. I last posted in June after getting what seemed like a minor hamstring injury and more serious calf tear. Turned out the other way round. The calf sorted itself quite quickly but two weeks later the hamstring failed on a try out run and a week after that on another try out on a treadmill. Without warning and completely.
So, Abingdon came and went and La Rochelle (back-up race) came and went. I put my entry for Comrades in a few days before it closed so last Sunday I headed out for the first time since the end of June. 2.5 miles at 11.22 pace....I only ran in April and May this year so I've pretty much lost my base. It's going to be a long road to Durban.
Last up run I ran on very little training resulting in a Bakers cyst forming and rupturing at about mile 40, mercifully. I swore I wouldn't turn up to another Comrades under trained and here I am. : )
Last time I ran the Shakespeare marathon at the last moment to qualify but that's too late next year so no use. Does Barcelona fill up? I'd like to leave it as late as I can before entering. Good to see every one going well.
Hello Florence. Yes I'm injured and can't run. If you PM me I can give you my details and you can contact the organiser and sort a transfer. The organiser has known I can't run for a few weeks but has sent no one my way?
