Well done Badbark - great result! In your first ultra too!
Lorenzo - brilliant, that's a good chunk off your PB. I quite fancy the idea of the 2miler in Bat Park. I used to live just round the corner so know the park very well.
Jools - indeed, I was following the updates on Twitter too - to be honest I find Marigold a true inspiration and proof of what can be achieved if you focus and knuckle down to some serious hard work. I'm a bit behind on MT currently but looking forward to listening to his interview.
Blisters - ah bu**er that doesn't sound great but unless they've amputated I'm hoping that a year off is on the pessimistic side!
Gul - great confidence builder!
For me today I'm hoping to get out at some point for a very slow tester at something a little longer that I've been running recently but still probably I the single figures, maybe push to 10 but seeing as I'm on a very long road back I need to be cautious.
Morning all, an "easy" few again for me today. Still hard work but I've got to keep telling my self it will get easier and it's going to be worth it in the end.
Thanks for all the tips on shoes - I've read lots of good things about the inov8s but I have a tendency to turn my ankle probably need a little more supportive unfortunately. It's seems I'm going to have to change my normal retailer and actually leave the house to go to an actual shop!
SB - watch out on those ribs. I cracked a rib and damaged my intercostal muscle a few years ago playing rugby and the pain sounds very similar. Not that you can do a lot for ribs other than rest them so they can heal. Go easy.
