BOOM BOOM BOOM, what an amazing day for the thread. Congratulations to you all. Can't wait for the race rreports. I was stood on the embankment saw Button Cracknell and most importantly Paula. And even more importantly Carrot, I was shouting like a man possessed. got a little emotional when the 3.15 pacers went past, but enjoyed the experience of watching, but just once thanks. once again very very well done to you all.

Ran this morning pain straight away tried to run it off but got worse and had to stop and hobble back. Deep down i kinda knew this was coming but very frustrated, best campaign, fastest and fittest I've ever been, great build up races and really thought I was finally going to get the 3:15 monkey off my back. What's done is done no point in crying over it, done that already. So thought I would be running next year with gfa but I have deferred so will be there fingers crossed. Probably have a few too many tonight, but will be around for race tomorrow so hopefully see you to give words of encouragement. Good luck all and DBS

My hip/glute is better but nowhere near 100%,  intermitent. Always worse after I've been sat down.  Well I've consulted doctor google and diagnosis is piriformus irritating sciatic nerve.  Doing lots of stretches and using anti inflammatory gel.  Tried a short run this afternoon in race kit and not pain free so plan is to run again Saturday then make a decision.  Hope everyone else with niggles are feeling better,

AA - Very very well done.  "have n't run for 10 days" you are my inspiration

Nell - Will be on blue start pen 2 if same as last time.  Very consistent running from you.

kfc -  welcome back and well done on the PBs.  Good target for VLM.

Minni - My thinking for tri is swimming is n't great but will get better just go and smash the bike and run. Congrats on the anniversary.

2old - very decent last longish run.  Hope your glute is responding to the abuse.

Chick - Good to see you're getting the long runs done, are you back to your standard 80 mile weeks yet.

o4s -  Not sure of the injury rivalries can't see me and 2old arguing over "who has the sorest arse"

Freemers - well done on the half.  Looking good for Sunday.

I have been hammering right glute with spiky ball and it was feeling better.  Hour with the physio yesterday who ruled out any joint problems thinks its piriformus.  Gave whole area a good working over, which I think is why it is more painful today.  He recommended no more heavy rolling just gentle stretching and to try and run today but not going to risk it due to pain.  Currently think I'm 50/50 but trying to be positive.

Nell - Very tasty MP miles. Think I do that stretch, pigeon stretch?

AA - Good luck and enjoy.

O4S - Good to see you're having the odd easy day.

Spiky ball, think it's meant to go in the tumble dryer,  is getting a lot of use, today I can sort of walk which is definate progress, if VLM was this Sunday I would not be there, but I'm hopeful of making the start.

Nell - quick stuff in the conditions and liking the attitude.

2old - the plan was 10 thursday, 12 sunday and 5 tuesday then 3 the day before VLM with a bit of swimming thrown in but see below.

Yeah well took a rest day yesterday and decided to do my last quick running today before the big day, comfortable quick 5 miles in 33:28, but about 5 mins after stopping my right glute/hip started to tighten and I am now struggling to put weight on it and walk, no pain when stretching.  Doing all the usual stuff but ffs wtf is going on. Will see what a few days rest brings.

Chick -  Congrats and very well raced through the chaos.

Oompa -  Unlucky, it is a tough sport we take part in, any issues and you will be found out, you were obviously suffering, and where you were with injuries last year very well done for making it around.

O4S - Very well done on your last long run, while most mortals are cutting back. Please don't start regarding the weather, I have memories of Stratford 2010 v hot and the heat is one of my biggest concerns for the day.

Nell - As you told me you are allowed one "bad" run.

2old - v well done on the national and the Parkrun and decent long one. 920 looks v nice, think it's similar to the 910 but will get better as third parties can write apps for it. blue or red?

AA - Go and enjoy, I'm sure you will.

20k on the indoor bike sat morning followed by swim club  afternoon.  11 miles at 7:25 avg yesterday morning.  Taper madness set in early, sniffles yesterday zapped with first defence and OK today.  Rest day today, kind of coping.

2old - Looking forward to OW, yeah my swimming is coming on and I have made progress.  Great swimming and running from you, takes me a few miles to warm up, somtimes on my longer runs only starts to feel good from mile 5. Which watch have you? Me and Minni had a FB chat a few weeks ago when she was trying to set up her 910xt, I love mine.

Nell - Good running and great looking shoes.  Getting close to the big day for us all, sorted your planned pace yet?

O4S - Good news on the running.

10.5 miles yesterday at 7:33 avg and an hour in the pool this morning, used pull buoy,give the legs a rest,  and practised left breathing for a bit then just kept going at a steady pace, 2.5k in the hour.
