I can picture it now; you are banned from your local gym after taking a rucksack full of house bricks in and are dragged from the running machine you are jacking up at one end..."But I'm running Comrades" you protest..."Not in here you're not, and we're not your Bolshevik buddies, take it elsewhere" is the reply as you are ejected into the street and your ruck sack and bricks follow shortly afterwards.
Very good Lowrez - I'm still chuckling at this.
Agree with Danirr, boerewors is highly recommended, we've always got some stashed away in the freezer because if the sun comes out our first instinct is to start a fire - a bbq not random arson)
I'm looking forward to race number 3 next year, for the first time I'll know what's coming.
I'd like to apply for the sub-9'ers but I'd need to avoid the silly mistakes made earlier this year in preparation.
Lowrez - fyi...I ordered a roll recovery R8 in late July (it's nothing as nice as the Audi of the same name) and just recently started using it properly post runs. It causes me grave pain on any sensitive muscles but its at least effective in releasing any tightness so I hope its saving me money prolonging the period between sports massages. You have to import it but it came to approx. $140 in total with shipping to London.
I'm not convinced it works on the glutes quite as well as the legs (even though it says it can be used there) however that's not an area I'm accustomed to using a sports massage therapist either!
Entered! I'll book flights at the death in April/May - doesn't seem much more expensive than normal. I try to book my return flight a day or so after the schools go back from half-term when the price drops.
I've enjoyed a few weeks in rural France (Perigord) making the most of running up and down hills in the sunshine and general laziness otherwise. Always good to come back on here and find loads of messages to read.
Sadly I have Abingdon looming and with only a 12miler banked as a long run its not going to be very PB friendly to me after all.
