VTr, injuries eh? I wonder how good we could all be without them... I'm still going to run and run it hard. I doubt it will end well but this is marathon number 15 (including IMs and ultras so that must give me a bit of resilience. Plus, I may as well turn up since I've paid for flights etc.
In your position I'd spend my week just resting (you won't lose any actual fitness just a bit of mental prep) and turn up in as healthy a position as possible. Give it a go and if it flares up mid race then you can always abort then. The training is done. Go and do it.
PJF, your chip time is THE time. If you are looking for a fast and well organised race with high PB potential then Manchester is it (only downside is it finishes at Old Trafford). If you are after more of an occasion / experience then Paris has the vote.
BI, more cos I'm a greedy git rather than carbing up. The caffeine taper starts today
Ankle feels better but not runnable yet.
XC season all ready? Crikey.
Well done to all the racers (especially the VOGIT!)
On the home front, the injury has not abated. Haven't run now for 4 weeks and have now even got off the bike for a few days in a last ditch attempt to settle the injury down.
On the plus side I had an all clear from a stomach endoscopy yesterday (very uncomfortable) organised worryingly rapidly after a visit to the GP earlier in the week. A bit of health stress puts it all into perspective so I'm a happy bunny.
Race is in 2 weeks! All bets are off in terms of time but I'm going to enjoy it all the same.
Very promising PB VTr. Sounds like more scope in there too. I've been watching Fear the Walking Dead recently to get my fix of decomposing feet. Speaking of the undead, I'm currently enjoying watching United get hammered - very pleasing after my team knocked 6 in yesterday
Shin / ankle is feeling a step change better today (no pun intended). Bike later then a little run.
