Nell- don't worry I'm getting a thorough going over. Nice pacey run today. You'll have a lot of pace to release in some shorter races after the marathon training. It's always good to see a niggle disappear too. I will pm you after a few more tests are out of the way
saw the neurolgist and he was of the same view as my GP ...'situational syncope'but he wants an MRI to dot the i's and cross the t's so thats the plan for Monday.
Barry-I ve seen that bike advertised and it looks brilliant.A winter on it-if you can push Pink off-and youll be near Ironman ready next year
Kiwi-good gyming there and good idea to do a 10k for the fun? of it
Nell-guess you have time to recover from London to nail Edinburgh too though if sub 3 is your aim -and it probably should be-only one of them can be your A race
On the other hand AA will not have the opportunity to recoverBoston is on a Monday
ECG today showed what I already knew-I have an enlarged left ventricle-as do many other distance runners -otherwise all ok but I now wait to see if the GP a) wants to see me to discuss it or b) refers me for an Echocardiogram or c) does nothing further. A cardiologist said 3 years ago it was nothing to worry about and just what 'one would expect from a fit gentleman of (my) age'. Seeing the neurosurgeon tonight. What a hassle when I could be going to my swim club.
AA- Boston and London- a pair of my dreams but beyond my capability- bet it's one you'll take in your stride I'm sure . You thrive on pain
Nell- which is your A race?London ?with Edinburgh your lap of honour?
Barry- no rush to get back running..sort out the Achilles now ready for next year. What sort of exercise bike have you got. I do most of my cycling- little that it is and nil at the moment, on mine
Chick- you're having a rough time at the mo. Hope your back to 100% soon
O4S- more good stuff from you. Look after BA
Free- keep building your LR like this and youll be doing ultras by March.
daren- thanks for popping in and reassuring us all is ok. Can't blame you for taking the sensible approach. Hope all works out. I actually fainted two weeks ago and hit my head Leaving a nice scar ,whiplash and swollen jaw. Seeing neurosurgeon on Weds and having another ECG then too. In Nov I'm being fitted with an ECG device to wear all day. I'm taking the view that's all belt and braces to confirm all is well. My problem is that I can't bring myself to quit....at least not until after London . The tests may do that though.
Eased myself back last week with 3 runs,3 swims and a bracing walk along the Local beach and over the sand dunes.
