PP - do you have to wear that awkward lookign back pack thing with the flag in still? Good luck pacing, must be pretty bonkers pacing at an event as big as that and for a time which is considered such as barrier for many still. Doy up end up running with other sub 3 pacers from the other starts?
Padams - cheers, qualifying will be my greatest personal achievement to date I'd say. But he's I'm sick to death of writing essays, lol
Looking forward to Kimetto v Kipsang face off tomorrow
Just a quick message to everyone on here to say good luck to everyone on here on Sunday! Hope you all nail your targets! Looking forward to catching the elite races on TV and hearing how everyone gets on on here.
I'm pootling about up here but with a dissertation to finish and being on final placement kind of have my hands full elsewhere. Course finishes 1st June....when I'll be a fully qualified physio...........
Good luck to Dan and Wardi in Barcelona! Hope it goes brilliantly
Hope you recover RS and anyone else injured or unwell.
On shoes - the Boston boosts are the best shoe ive worn on the roads. I've got a pair of the first edition Adios boosts too and while I've only worn them a couple of times here pretty much ideal for me. Given I run about 2-3 road races a year thesedays they'll probably do for the next 10 years, lol
Only run a few times since nationals, part allowing calf to settle and then picked up a bug. Not a bad time for me to rest really though, loads of study on and first main races still some weeks away.
Ironically even though I've run very little im down to 11'8 which is getting light for me, purely down to sorting diet out.
Muss - you'll get some good advice from folk on here, stick around.
TT - that looks like a good plan
Bains - sounds like you're managing things the right way....patiently
PP - thought you'd appreciate the colour of these below Picked them up reduced price for shorter fell and more runnable lakes races.
Calf still a bit iffy but nowt serious. Using x trainer later and maybe a jogg tomorrow but saturdays xc fixture probably too soon being realistic. Rather save myself for final fixture in two weeks where I'll be 100%.
