DT your symptoms do sound strange and I reckon you must be pleased you didn't try running - good decision. A quick bit of googling and I think Guillain-Barré syndrome is what you are being investigated for - it's a 1 in 100,000 shot so let's hope it's not that. Get well soon and let us know if you are feeling any better. I think your wife sounds very sensible in getting you checked out properly.
Hope you had a good race Tommy and nice relaying of the kids between parents McFlooze family.
I did 13.8 this morning round the woods in my new Brooks Cascadia and was finished by 8:30 so can now enjoy the gorgeous weather without thinking it's a bit hot for a run.
I went to buy Inov8 Roclite 290 or Asics Fuji but the Brooks just felt better on my feet - the Roclite felt like slippers but they weren't gripping my heels and I didn't want to buy shoes that I felt I would have to tie the laces really tight as that has given me problems recently.
I am going to 'run' the Liverpool marathon in 4 weeks, just 24 hours after a 28 hour journey back. I think from reading back this thread that T'Dan is also doing that race. I'll be aiming for 4:30 - I'm helping a friend get round in 4:30 -4:45 so pace isn't important. Just as well as true to form I have done zero runs over 13 miles in 18 months.
Well remembered Muddy except that you misremembered as Richard is flying half way round the world to run Liverpool FULL this weekend. I think it might be easier flying all the way round the world and then only running a Half marathon.
Unlucky McF - doesn't sound too bad a run though. Only 5 secs a mile off a PB although 5 mile PBs are normally a bit random anyway due to what I thought was the infrequency of 5 mile races - that is until the last page of posts where there seems to be one every other week in the Midlands.
Good luck Tommy on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend in Edinburgh.
