As I am sitting at the airport I followed DT's lead and did some research (well googled) to find out how fast a camel could run a marathon - (I had not done this when I suggested a camel originally). It turns out a camel was a good shout with an estimated marathon time of 1 hour 2 minutes and only two animals ahead of it (humans are 5th in list and DT's 2.5 hour horses are 6th.
I think Lit may prefer to think of herself as a Pronghorn Antelope in joint first place in 45 minutes rather than an Ostrich - same time.
So I have managed to write a post covering Samir and sub 1 hour marathons without any bullsh1t!
Bob - I'm not out of the woods yet - every run is a voyage into the unknown as far as the injury is concerned but I think I need to keep a lot of 3 milers in the plan and use the spare time for strengthening and stretching and slowly test the longer runs and occasionally low volume faster runs and not be scared to stop again if it starts worsening.
There's not much more I can do. I don't like it that the physio now describes it as a chronic injury but its nice to be back on roads again.
Local HM - stands for Great Cumbrian Run which is a little bit of over marketing I would say although rather like Mace earlier I can't quite think of an appropriate adjective - something for me to ponder on the flight home.
And yes I am being - love that word, shortest word in the English language with all the vowels in the correct order.
