ST Looks like you're doing the right thing now by backing straight off.
OT - you could be right. Sensible to back off.
Wardi - nice one and well done on the charity work
Andy D - another day. Like the sound of the beer!
BMacG - Nice 21k
Jonny - that's a stormer. Well done you: superb time, effort, position
Blisters - nice one
Clearly - good effort in the context of the play within the play. Those races within larger sessions are top training.
CD - well done on the parkrun
Padams - sounds great and good luck settling in, plus build up to the big one.
Al_P - excellent on the 19m. And for CW One of the things which finally stopped me was the hop test that some on here recommended i.e. can you hop on that leg? I went for X-Ray (useless) and MRI which showed bone bruising and a 'raised signal'. That's one stop short of stress fracture so was lucky.
SL - big miles, well done
TT - huge miles
TR lol none taken at all. You're right really. I don't think I realised how tiring this final stage of the editing would be. Putting in 12-16 hour days, focused on the screen, edge of seat. It's surprisingly tiriing. Anyway, took a rest Sunday after nearly 2 weeks without one, and did an easy yesterday. I'm on my final week so I've got to cut back the running anyway. Will take stock next week and prob come back raring to go, so it may be just what was needed.
Struggling with CNBA at the moment. Running about 60mpw but my writing comes first, and right now just feel knackered + my weight's static. It's also hot and sunny here. I guess once I send off the manuscript in a week I'll feel differently but having a 'can I really be arsed to do another marathon' phase. Argh.
Oliver that's v decent of them. Bet you wouldn't have got the same treatment the other way around.
LD I was only teasing!
CW I've been choking back a little worry re. your shin, only because you're such a great runner and spooking others on here's bad practice but you've had me concerned. It's only because I ran through a shitty shin for a while and nearly SF'd it. It's probably nothing of the sort, but may be worth getting a MRI?
