Bonjour Everyone - So many new people I don't recognise the place. Welcome to everyone I don't know, I hope you're training is going well. Paris is wunderbar ! I'm PC, this is my 4th Paris, training is getting shorter and the times are getting longer but I love it.
Advice : on his way home, my big toe was attacked by a door frame. Apart from swearing and the sudden pain there was no swelling or anything different I had forgotten about it. I've been running, no discomfort. Occasionally something touches my toe and I have an excruciating pain, a pinching sensation. a broken toe would have swollen, pinched nerve or hairline fracture is caused by repetetive movements. I'm ok but it's annoying, would like to know what it is and if I should do anything.
Magna Carter - welcome. Must be difficult to run with a wooden leg and a parrot. You can easily change pens at the expo.
10k. it was good, I made a few mistake including tripping over the same hole as I did last week. Small field so not many people to chase down in the final K especially as most had already finished. It's the start of my Amsterdam training, I'm pleased with my first step.
Wendy - I'm pleased that Orbutt didn't scare you away, when you manage to forget about that photo he reposts it ! Washing your eyes in bleach helps.
Heidi - I presume that's not a typo. 7,5 stone is nearly 50kg. Well done, must have taken a lot of determination. Your local cake shop must have gone out of business when you took control of your health. There are several among us who have lost a lot of weight but you take the biscuit.
I have a 10K tonight. In the time it has taken Emmy to earn her top, I have done 3 x 10k, 3 x HM and 3 marathons, this will be my 10th race and it's not even 10k, it's 9,5. The race organisers thought they would be funny this year and have included two nasty hills, ok it's not Comrades but many are going to suffer. I'll be wearing my Paris top with pride, not the crappy orange one but the magnificent purple one.
