Big thanks to the organisers. Very enjoyable race and a great atmosphere. Feeling it in my legs a bit now though. I will be keeping my diary free for the end of April next year. I'll be in the 40+ category next time round. Hoping to break 1:45.
Having recently managed a 45:07 minute 10k with a bit of a fractured training program and a dodgy ITB, I'm wondering that if I focussed a bit more on training then a sub 21 minute 5k isn't beyond the realms of possibility.
I would love to break this barrier before I turn 40 in January. Am I insane?
I had some Kinetica 100% energy ( a freebie from a previous race) today prior to a 10k event, and it smelled/tasted of egg. I used 2 separate bottles, and both were cleaned & sterilised prior to use, and it had only been in the bottle for about 90 minutes. Anyone else had a similar experience with this or other powdered energy drinks?
Thanks to event organisers at todays Lincoln 10k road race. It was a fantastic event The weather was absolutely perfect, which was totally unexpected after what we have had to put up with recently. It was my first time at the event, and I just missed out on a sub 45 by 8 seconds. But considering it knocked 4 minutes off my previous 10k best, I am more than happy. I will definitely be trying again next year (when I will be in the 40-50 age group ).
It could be anything, from a trapped nerve to a circulatory problem. One thing that may cause that kind of issue is nerve damage (possibly linked to the bruised heel that your doc suggested). Not to the actual nerve bundle, but the surrounding sheath.
