Nell- sub 3.10 looks on the cards .Are you self coaching? Had that sub 3 guy gone under 3 before? Maybe upping my cycling might help me avoid injury .Enjoyed the sprinting at the Games tonight. Is there a good Games Vibe in Scotland ,like for the Olympics in London?

Barry- almost OCD type splits today. It would be good to see a graph  of them over the last  6 months . It's hard building up bike mileage so good going 

Kiwi- I will try to be patient but it's not really part of my character 

decided not to swim tonight so did an hour spinning

Minni-loooks like you've earnt that holiday.Great TRing with the others.Well done.

Barry-looking very consistent and all bodes well for Abbo.Any races coming up?

KFC-things coming together nicely for your marathon too.Must be nice to be able to knock out 20mile LRs like shelling peas

Nell-god pacey running-you must have an eye on near 3hrs for your next marathon

Kiwi-excellent meandering

Pink-you're braver than me -I panic going fast down hills on a bike.Strange that as I can happily do the same speed or faster on skis.Are you going to do a tri this September? You know you can

After a week of swimming I risked a run on Friday and happily got through 5k unscathed.Busy weekend so nothing more until today and managed an hours running again with no niggles.Now the hard part will be to ease myself back in.

Calf strain

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 15:17

Tracy-sounds like what Im suffering from.My physio says the problem is sciatica in the back but radiating/referring the pain down the nerve to my calf. Stretches dont help as its the back problem that needs addressing.As its early on I shouldnt aggravate the problem by running or cycling but should remain active by walking swimming where my posture remains straight. My problem started 3 weeks before Boston Marathon when I lifted some bags of animal feed. Unfortunately whilst initially it was only back ache the calf problem came forthe first time stopped me after 8 miles in the race itself.I did finish but only after 20 mins of treatment in the medical tent. I was ok after that until 3 weeks ago when again I think I did some more lifting .Not sure when this will pass.Im afraid to go on a test run having had to stop after 1-2 miles on 3 occasions.Good luck and hope you make quicker progress than me.

Chick-cross post. Ive only seena physio-I doubt my GP would offer an opinion on which was the reason until I'd rested for a month and returned with the same symptoms.I suspect its a disc issue going back to 3 weeks before Boston which started when I unloaded several bags of chicken feed from my car. When did you get the injection done?I thought youd stopped complaining about your back. That was a nice break.

Kiwi-as per KFC,dont complain-Id love to be out there cooking. Why not put your running gear in the fridge overnight-I read somewhere it works if you do the same with bed sheets....just a thought

KFC-well done getting the 8 done. Good question to FRC regarding recovery from Comrades-wonder what the score is recovering from an Iron man- a few I know seem to recover quickly and do 50 mile ultras a week or so later?

Another mile and a bit in the pool  today

Barry- only. 3 runs ? I wish.  That must have been a hellish 10.. it was 30c !

Nell- a perfect holiday in France- like KFC- looks good for you over the next few months. Excited about the Games?  I'm hoping to join you at London next year with my GFA ,injury permitting

enjoyable swim in the pond near Wigan tonight. Water was so warm. Just under 2k and a minute quicker than last month.

Kiwi-you'll soon make up for that missed LR

KFC-I guess all that bike stuff will get you through the marathon.Your personal TdF must have been great. Enjoy Scotland

Pink-dont worry about missing the run -its too hot anyway

Barry-I will have to see how August goes before deciding about Abbo-I would like to do it even if its just as a LR and by doing so get my 10th marathon out of the way. Be careful in this heat-you could undo all the hard work of the last few months . Allowing for the heat those are frighteningly fast splits, bordering on dangerously.

Just signed up for an Open Water Swim on 31st August in case Im a DNS for the Wirral Tri. I think its the local pond time trial tonight too.

DD-so I wont be seing you then.Enjoy your mountain.Thi hills around our way are called Sierra Blanca and make for some interesting hill climbs if you are into that sort of punishment ,which I know you are.

Anyone got any quick fixes for sciatica ? Another swim done-bit like a tri start-pool full of kids and their toys and others wallowing in my path
