Stig - so that'll be an assist every 8 miles? Sounds fine. I am a long way off; both in form and distance, but, food for thought for 2016. Sounds like you need designated drivers in that apres-trot-tent!
Got my watch on charge having not recorded my 5 mile pace today. Prescribed post run stretching is giving me the upper body and core work-out I have missed all these years, more exhausted than doing the run, but the final result is a strange healing glow where its needed...hope my optimism bone is not over reacting; might try 6 on Wednesday; eager to improve.
Bike; sounds like a brilliant move? And you are in great form! Googled that biok thingy - seems massive in SA? But what do they do?
Standing in the garden he raises his arm to the skies; where are those satellites? What do you mean; "am I currently indoors"? Get on with it! "Charge"? I gave you plenty yestarday? Oi! Switch back on! Start! Start, you vicious ***! Come on! Oh, my God! I'm warning you! If you don't start... I'll count to three! 1, 2, 3! Right! That's it! I've had enough! You've tried it on just once too often! Right! Well, don't say I haven't warned you! I've laid it on the line for you time and time again! Right! Well, this is it! I'm going to give you a damn good thrashing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv0onXhyLlE
Superb news Stig! And sounds like you've kept in pretty good shape? I had a look at the D33 site - bit sparse - are there support/drink stations along the route? I downloaded the "D33 for beginners" training plan - looks pretty good for Comrades for me that! That's if I can drag my bones through my current "long run" of 5 miles tomorrow - onward to better times!
Dannirr; put more rest days in between your re-build runs - even using the AlterG; 9 miles in 2 days is a big ask for your body to soak up after a bit of a layoff due to pain. Sounds like you've let it fix; don't push it too much too early though.
Was catching up on this thread over the past few days having been in the doldrums for ages, but nothing compared to Jacquie and Stig; wishing them all the best for recovery. Becca you aced that hip flexor come-back!
I'm not going well at all; ran 4 miles on Sunday; slow; in the snow; and my hamstrings hated me; the snow is irrelevant; but it was great to be out; in the snow; crunching into the margins of the path to avoid the killer smooth ice puddles. Longest I have run since Cape Town!
My hamstrings have hated me for months, so much so that I have mentally disassociated them from the rest of my body; they're not part of me anymore; they belong to my physio. My physio loves them; and they love my physio; they respond to the healing touch for a while and then stab me in the butt again.
So, onwards to either victory or the hospital; weekly physio visits in the diary now with orders to get out there and run; physio will keep me on the road or tell me to abandon this years attempt. In theory we are running through the barrier to the plateau of bliss where regular running becomes the therapy not the cause.
McHilly; I have no events for the list, but am eager to declare some if I respond to treatment.
Great qualifier Lars - is that the Comrades 90th anniversary watch? I couldn't resist it either, despite the lack of info, thought it looked really cool, just had to have it. What's the best bit of Marine Corps gear you've acquired?
B7 and F2D; even more pleased with my 310 purchase knowing you have the same tech...it was an easy choice at it's current price despite the very latest tech, but big bucks, Fenix2 and Ambit2 cooing to me across the screen.
