AspirantRunner-great time, i can only dream of going that fast!
Jimbob Paris was fun, i agree and that was my first time there but third time London like you. I have to say i was staggered that the in between period went well and ive recovered really well-ive been out running short runs. I havent got a challenge yet but can see it will be difficult to resist with this thread!
Hi all, its TheBigOne but ive shortened it to TBO2 (TBO already taken) as i had it pointed out to me several times im not big (it was the race not me!).
Im just catching up, horribly late to the party-an update:
I did do VLM and finished in 5:49, over 30 mins faster than Paris! The coolness of the day really worked for me so im now looking at marathons in the arctic circle. Seriously i may look at something for Autumn but no plans to do Paris at the mo.
Sorry imissed you all at VLM, it sounds like you had a good experience and great time Jimbob!
Orbutt, the video made me cry, i had such a good time with all of you. Ill keep a watching eye on the thread if thats okay, nice to know you are out there.
Kenno ive had problems with that myself and have kept off my feet and done a lot of icing and applying ibuprofen gel. I find that taking ibuprofen makes me feel ill if i take too much but the gel you can put straight on with no side effects.
The other thing that has helped is a full on sports massage where the therapist did a lot of calf work ehich relieved tightness.
