Is running in the dark easier

Posted: 15/12/2014 at 13:24

Quite the reverse.  In daylight I focus on the horizon - or equivalent - and set myself the target to getting to a certain point in a set time.  In darkness the distance seems stretched out precisely because I can only see as far as my head toch allows.  I also go slower because I am less certain of my footing and also - if I am on a trail rather than road - I am worried I might miss my turning, even on a familiar route.

Exercise-induced asthma

Posted: 04/12/2014 at 11:53

I struggled for years until I was prescribed Symbicort which I started on at x2 puffs twice a day.  It took a few weeks to really become effective but I am now virtually asthma free having previously having attacks of such severity I required emergency hospital treatment.

Would you like a job in running?

The irony is that you'd be too busy working to train much - then even if you could you probably wouldn't be able to enter many events as you'd be attending in your professional capacity instead.

want to rule out stress fracture

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 01:37

The other possibility is a stress fracture of the pubic ramus where the pain which is initially felt in the groin area can radiate to the knee, in which case a knee x ray would reveal nothing.  More common in women, but a possibility in men.

Due to injury joined half way through Day 2 and did all of Day 3.  Spent night in hotel in Wantage which was just as well given problems with hot water at Wantage leisure centre.  As ever XNRG did all they could make the event enjoyable as possible in spite of all the problems.  Looking forward to Pilgrims' next February.
