Bright and sunny and ideal running weather. Unfortunately, my cold refuses to shift, so I am not running today. Hopefully, I will trot out tomorrow.
Aquarius, I've never tried compression socks, but there are several runners at my club that wear them.. They started wearing them after they had "pulled" their calf muscles, and have found them to be excellent in preventing recurrences of the injuries.
Thanks Columba, the cold is driving me mad. It's certainly a lot better than it was, but I thought resting again today would accelerate recovery. I want to be fit for next Sundays 10 miler.
Very disappointed that neither the ladies or men's cycling was able to be shown yesterday due to technical problems. I'm hoping the problems will have been solved for todays racing.
DBI, glad that you managed to sort out the transport conundrums.
Bright and sunny again, and had hoped to go for a run with Steve this morning. Unfortunately, my cold has refused to leave me, so I will see how I feel tomorrow. It's a long time since I've gone a week without running and I feel like climbing up the wall. I spent yesterday afternoon watching the tour de Yorkshire, stage 1 and today, the ladies will also be racing on the same course as the men. I see that the ladies prize money will be greater than the men's, so it's good that ladies are getting the recognition and support that they deserve.
DBI, I miss JJ as well. He was witty, but his comments were never offensive, and I miss his training tips. Hope things work out ok for you today and that you make the correct decisions
Red, I wish you the best of luck with your 2 marathons, and am sending you the wings.
