Haha I'm afraid I couldn't help but laugh at this story! I hope the pain reduces quicky and you can see the funny side of it too! It must have been caught on CCTV. That must be worth tracking down to send in to you've been framed!
My local parkrun is Tilgate in Crawley. I checked the results and I came 8th out if 226 and 1st in my age group so I'm pleased with that. I know to stand right at the front next time so I don't get held up so much. I think that cost me a sub 20 min time! I was really impressed by it all though considering its free.
My passage to parenthood seems to have hit fast forward. The weeks are suddenly flying by. The house is a bit of a building site at the moment as I'm trying to get as much done before the baby arrives! Our 20 week scan is on the 29th, we're still planning on not finding out what sex it is yet although it is tempting. This way we get to disagree on both girls and boys names!
The thunder run looks like a good event. Yet another one for this list of runs to do one day! I was planning on doing the Sussex marathon weekender next weekend but won't be able to do that now. I've been given some strong anti inflamatories to take for 2 weeks and told to rest up. If its still no better and still swollen in two weeks I need to go back again.
I'm looking in to a couple of 10k runs to enter in a few months and possibly the barnsgreen half marathon which is just a couple of weeks before D-day. I saw in this months runners world the fact about higher sperm concentration for men that exercise. That explains a lot!
What time are you aiming for in the 3 forts marathon? I take it you'll be going slow and steady and practicing techniques for comrades.
My weight hasn't changed at all since Paris despite polishing off Easter eggs, re discovering beer, dominos, curry and not running! I'm not sure how this happened. I think I've got faulty scales!
Well done Malcs! I was watching it all on TV wishing I was there. Looked like a great day for it. What's your next goal?
Ady, you should do a training run down on the coast over the seven sisters. Plenty of hills for you there! I'm planning on doing a run there at some point this year. I still can't run properly yet though. I tried a 3 miler on Friday which didn't feel too bad at the time. Got home and iced it for 10 mins and then it was really stiff and swollen again! (I am still talking about my foot). Off to see the doctor this afternoon to see what damage I've done. Enjoy your 40 miles at the weekend.
