I won't be doing Paddock Wood - I tried a parkrun as a test and my calf pulled badly in the last 400 metres and had to walk in. Probably better there than out in middle of nowhere at Paddock Wood, especially as weather looks awful so not a huge loss in terms of races but did need the training. I haven't got much in hand and a few weeks off won't be helpful and would affect me a lot more than Tom.
Ros has finished her European Masters campaign - she did a parkrun in Poland this morning though. Her 400m time in Poland was apparently a British record.
though running Sunday will give you an extra day to recover for Paris if there is a problem!
see what physio says but definitely think you should miss track next week and maybe best to keep the running steady and avoid speedwork in next week. You've done all the quality speedwork you need.
My back is disappointing - marginally better in getting out of chair yesterday but still in spasm - normally takes a few days and now 8 - saw osteo yesterday after chiro and massage day before and all expected it be ok. Did 2 mile jog yesterday and won't be able to race HM flat out Sunday.
Normally treatment works but not much response after hundreds of pounds of treatment in a week!
Made mistake of focusing on working this am while trying to follow European Masters and foolishly didn't get up to stretch and now almost impossible to get up (nb Ros won fourth gold in last hour - W65 1500m against world record holder Angela Copson following 3000, 400 (PB at 65) and 800 golds in previous days. Worth noting 10 years ago Ros broke the British W55 marathon record with 3:08 but has since worked on her speed).
