Great running Dannirr - what did you clock - I will update the list gyzmo and quote your pen - are you joining a few of us in penC again this year? Perhaps this year I might even end up strolling to the pen with a few of you and meet a few more in there? Who am I kidding? I will be late and some other uncontrollable catastrophe will befall me again .
I ran for the first time since end of August on Saturday - the Strava group must be thinking "who is this impostor?". Previous last run: 130 miles, latest run: 5 miles; boy am I sore today! Got to get those engines up and running for my Wrexham qualifier in March. Managed it in under an hour - not qualifying pace yet, but a reasonable start.
Debra, when did you last change your running shoes? Those symptoms ring a bell with me - march fracture - it is decades ago now - but pain along the outer edge of the foot and the only visible symptom was a tiny round blemish on the sole of the foot along that outer edge. Had to take several weeks off and chuck my recent shoe purchase - although shoes beyond their expected natural life could do the same.
Thanks everyone still got 10 in the bag if anyone fancies one. Definitely wear them straight away, they are like a club badge, and we are declaring our intention to run (and make cut-off) next year. Plus we will be able to identify ourselves to each other in events leading up to the big day.
Bike It - post office man reckons yours have a 1 in 4 chance of arriving! Just wanted you to know that I have indeed posted them .
I'd definitely prefer charity donations over and above any treats in Durban. Thanks again for suggesting this Mac. Conscious of not wanting to gate-crash pen.C off the back of anything you guys give I have made sure I qualify prior to any other donations being made
SS - I'm not actually running at the moment so you will be ahead of me . Been trying to understand this niggly upper hamstring thing that I initially sparked doing speed work a long time ago. I think all I have proven recently is rest is not an answer. So time to put some shoes on and get in shape for my qualifier in March.
Debra - you are going through some tough times! Hope you can resolve things, but I think you only have 10 days left to enter.
Bike It - nice to see you improving despite the hip - don't start on the rain water cocktails though!
