zuluboy - that's Bruce Fordyce's company. They offer course tour, the service you mention, and a rocking after party at the aquarium. I have not used them, but I am thinking about it this year for their 3 drop off places.
Roger - If you're only just recovering from flu (particularly the nasty man-flu strain) then the chances are that LSR would be harder than expected. Well done! Now enjoy the taper.
Rodeoflip - Fingers crossed that what ever it is easily fixed. Hopefully a short break will see it better and you ok for Paris.
Some setbacks can be overcome even at this late stage. I broke a toe at this stage in training for Paris 2012. I had a week of no running at all in the taper because of it and could hardly walk for a few days after breaking it. I ran what still is my marathon PB that year.
Yup, I agree. Broke a toe in the lead up to Tokyo and still managed a good pb. Just rest it up.
Danni - can't you take a sickie ? . All the daddies here are sugar free. Emmy has a time machine.
Jimbob - take care !
Well, the real problem is that I and a partner own the company - and although that might seem like it gives me free reign, it does not because you want all employees to feel like they get a fair deal too. So although I have as much vacation time as I want, I don't want to be one of those bosses that let everyone else do all the work while I reap all the benefits.
