Not good Lev, but hopefully manageable - fingers crossed it all comes good for NYC and the rest after sorts it out!
Only on this thread could I come away feeling like a complete lard arse! At work I'm pointed out for being skinny, but at 5'8" and 146 lbs I'm a positive chunk compared to most on here . Never mind struggling to maintain pace in the wind, I'm surprised more of you aren't just blown clean away
Rob - can't imagine they are all staying for a week!
Hey, ho, we've found somewhere now - just had to bite the bullet and pay nearly double our budget . Looks like a nice place, though no internet access (whihc at least means work won't be able to hassle me!)
Matt - yours may not be the same issue, but my knee issues were sorted very quickly by doing squats before and after each run to force the kneecap to track properly. Key is for them to be very controlled, done in a motion like sitting in a chair slowly, keeping the knee almost straight and not moving it past the big toe. I do 20 reps.
As for my own ongoing saga, I may have turned a corner. I ran Tuesday, whihc was a bit uncomfortable, but not too bad. Then Tuesday I did a double to work and back (don't ask!) and both times it was completely fine, with no pain afterwards. Bike yesterday, but will try a run at lunchtime today. Just in time for my holiday...but therein lies another story!
We were supposed to be going to the lakes. Being tight, I was waiting for a last minute bargain cottage, but every bloody cottage in the lakes is full and seemingly so is our fallback of Snowdonia! Getting very stressed now as we're supposed to be going tomorrow and have nowhere to go!
