Susan, great to hear you have done some run/ walk, and now a park run. Fantastic news.
Ikle how is the hurty back, ITB and the house going? Do you foam roll your back and do extensions on it? Really helps. As does dowel work... Basically a broom handle. Various exercises for loosening up your back & shoulders.
JustCoop, broccoli and cauliflower. Weird. But then two minutes off 10k. Excellent.
Smeags - nice to see you.
Congrats to Martin on ultra. Really good pacing. Glad the trail shoes worked out., bar blister. Socks we need to look at for TP100. What garmin do you have?
Fido... Team TP member ready and waiting. Think the text will be CHIPS AN PIZZA TO CP3 PLS THKS BI. Think we will have a conference call from what Martin said.
I can load route up onto phone and garmin. Could always borrow one of the bigger route ones too for TP.
Helsby half for me. With busy work week, a little mini taper & rest from Thursday, just went for a 5-6 mile walk Thursday and Saturday (mrs FRC doing a 100k walk in May so trying her new boots and my head torch), then sadly race cancelled due to slushy paths, and tiny bit of ice. Would've been difficult for 2000+ runners.
A big posse from our club still ran it though, so a steady undulating 1:40 for 13.1 miles. All psyched up and then a bit flat.
Saturday Went into snow and rock for some clif bloks, noticed some nice Salomon road to trail there for bargain 45 quid, might've been a nice comfy shoe for canals Martin. Very comfy on road, with slight tread for trail.The 2 pound clif bloks ended up being 92 pound as my misuse bought some too. Doh!
