Lyrics: no.

Off to London ...and I really want to go back to sleep!

What: supposed to be Last Friday of the Month 5k in Hyde Park
Why: still don't feel right despite a reasonable sleep so unlikely to race

Hope to be well enough for a few beers with friends though!

LMH: well done! Some walk! And to make me feel better I suspect I need some sweet potato chilli!

Congrats to 40's son number 2!

Wabo: would like to say I enjoyed my short easy run, but...

What: 2k slower than I run my "long" runs.
Why: legs like jelly and pounding head. Just hope I sleep it off and feel refreshed in the morning. Felt rubbish all week, which is typical as  it is half term holiday.

In other news, not only did I put mum's house up for sale on Tuesday, it was on the estate agents' website last night (although I am not happy about this as they said I could view photos and review the blurb before it went on...lots of mistakes).

I take it LMH is still walking!

Lyrics: no

What: short gentle run
Why: body needs another easy day

Enjoy the walk, LMH. Rather wet here at present but it is supposed to be better later. And tomorrow in London 21 degrees has been promised, which would be the hottest ever 31st of October!

Well done, Don on the organisation front! Was that all within the school grounds?
What led to the change of club? Is it nearer?

And get well, Chick!

Meant to say, if anyone is putting their name forward for the Asics Target 26.2 you would have my full support, and I would imagine everyone else's on here!

Afternoon, just!

40: said you were young!

Dustin: I was going to say what 40 said! Have heard of the Bondarenko session, but had probably forgotten what it entailed. And yes, pace judgement is both crucial and sadly lacking from many athletes. I fear mine is not what it was!

LMH: no, I can't imagine either why the consultant would even think of saying the endorphins might kick in.

What: 2.4k very gentle
Why: legs are like jelly again. Feel fine though. Simply couldn't put one foot in front of the other. Supposed to be racing on Friday but it looks increasingly unlikely.

Lyrics: don't believe I do.

40: my point  is after I have raced hard I can hardly walk the next day, never mind a hard session. Not quite true as when (much) younger I was ok after a couple of miles. You must be young!

Exciting times, Dibs!

RFJ: good session.

40: surprised you could manage today's obviously didn't run hard enough yesterday!

What: 4k fartlek
Why: see if my legs could tick over a bit faster.

Cross post, LMH. Generally good news! Can't you start physio now, i.e. see someone privately or start doing some gentle work yourself? My worries about running were the jolting, and the danger of falling and doing further damage. When I did start "running" it was at "scout's pace": 12 steps walk, 12 steps (slowly) run.

And you are right with your "little old lady" reference: following the first time break the doctor I saw in A&E said it was a "little old ladies" injury. I didn't think anything about it until I arrived at the clinic later in the week: it was, of course, full of little old ladies.
