Dan taking to eating everything in world and avoiding too much alcoholism so far but heading that way....pint would be good! do your team hand write message to all xempo buyers; got such a classy message with the first top i ever bought last april really felt like fantastic personal touch guess its harder as the 'brand' grows
Dan I really do feel your pain. Although I'm fairly young still had really thought I was putting all eggs into one basket for this. Time away from wife and young daughter and all social engagements I've missed or not drunk at. Its not just a race. Knowing you are capable of that time but not having the chance to prove it seems cruel. Was desperate to break 2.40 and had pictured the scene in my head many times! Not sure how much more I can put them through this kind of training schedule again.
Dan that sucks so hard so sorry for you mate. I fel for you especially so close to the event
Well done on fine training and racing elsewhere wil catch up fully later
I've been off for 9 days now and still in pain. cycled twice but thats it as it seems to make it worse. 95% sure won't be on start line as don't want to do it and not get a serious PB unless something miraculous happen. absolutely gutted. will try and put it down to experience and get some good spring/summer short races in
no running hip hurts; physio on friday. will try bike next 2 nights in attempt to keep fitness. Amazing weather out finally, feeling depressed and eating lots ++++...should i just get wasted...............if not back to it this weekend thinking game over
