Crap news & rotten luck Dan, hope you can get some benefit from all that hard work.
Best of luck to tomorrow's racers - J.Itch, Jimbob, Charlie, Dachs & anyone I've missed.
Great comeback miles with a fast finish PP, nice long'un with a Park Run win from CD too.
Jools.. good reps in the middle of a long run, good session from TMoth as well.
Jonny.. I'm at Hull too. Depending on your powers of recovery 20m @ MP will take a lot out of you. 5m steady + 15m @ MP seems to be the max recommended a page or two back.
Volunteered at the York Park Run today, nice to meet you too Bedders (good luck at the Trafford 10k tomorrow young fella!). There was some serious chicking going on with 2 lesser spotteds in the first 5 finishers. Vicky Holland (Cheltenham vest & triathlete) was 3rd in 17:08 and Lucy Hall (triathlete) 5th in 18:09. Great stuff given fairly windy conditions to contend with.
TR.. hope the late doors plan works for you, all the best.
Sounds like rough times Selbs, hope the snowboarding (& the winter olympics) cheered you up a bit.
DanA.. when physios try to wrench parts of us back to where they should be it is bound to disturb a few nerve ends - try to rest it for 2-3 days and see how it feels. You've put plenty of good miles in this time so nothing much to be gained now.
Toro.. hope you heal soon. Don't keep digging up the spuds to see if they are still growing though!
Bunny.. good luck for tomorrow, especially the changeovers.
Lev.. great to see you at full bore again.
Bedders.. will do, though if you don't bring your pace group home on time wrists will be slapped!
5.5m steady tonight, that's it until Sunday for me. Forecast is improving wind wise which is good.
Bedders.. I see you're down for pacemaking duties at the York Park Run. I'm marshalling so will say hello. FWIW I would only do a 23m run 3 weeks out if I had missed a few long runs - not worth the risk otherwise (take note of the injury list on here!).
Running Owl.. there is a danger of leaving your marathon performance at a 20 miler if you run it flat out. 5m steady, 15m @ MP is the hardest I would run it. I have met several runners who feel that they wasted their peak performance on a 20 miler & felt a bit flat on marathon day. I'm at Hull too, what colour vest will you be wearing?
Cripes Charlie, is this the same recurring blister or do you keep getting new ones?
Good to see PP & HR improving towards good health. How are things with you Selbs?
Oh dear, the toasters are taking a bashing at the moment.
DanA.. damnation! all I can suggest is to roll your butt on a cricket ball or similar in between sitting on an ice pack. In my experience nerve problems can disappear overnight or hang around for ages, hope you get lucky.
Same sentiments to TR, hope it isn't too serious & a swift recovery to Pi Man too.
Nice to see Lev & Al P getting back to it.
Awesome run SL, certainly a well earned lunch!
4.2m + 8.2m for me yesterday, liking the weather at the moment.
Don't fret over it too much HR, just see how you feel tonight/in the morning and make a (wise) decision. Such a shame when it's an 'A' race.
Best of luck in the XC RS78, good day for it.
Glad you're feeling better TT, sensible decision on the race.
I hadn't run the Park Run for 5 weeks so thought my legs might be a bit rusty at 5k pace. Pleasantly surprised therefore with 19:53, 27th out of 300+. Beautiful windless sunny day so topped up the suntan too!
