Maybe the key to removing those niggles is some speed work o flush whatever is causing it out - who knows, but sometimes the body works in mysterious ways! My adductor problem certainly feels a whole lot better after a race that I thought would finish it off....

As for your core stuff - you should no better Mr G!!!

My Mrs has taught me a few yoga moves that really help stretch out the main leg muscle groups - downward dog (calves), Indian knot (hamstrings) and a couple of others for adductors and groin whose names escape me!

Nice run home tonight  (if a bit warm!) so double off-road 5.6M at sub 8mm pace, which is relatively quick fro the routes, so happy with my post-race legs.

Got to take the kids to Thorpe Park tomorrow - really not looking forward to that!

That'll be why you are so slow then Rob

Did you try the Indian Knot SG? I find it deeper than the bed stretch one if done properly.

Joss gave me a jelly baby once during Borrowdale .

Part worn tyres Matt? Slicks more like

Always remember watching the DVD of Naylor's run where Joss ran his 60 peaks at 60 in 24 hours and then went straight back to work on his farm building a dry stone wall!

Small world - for a while I lived in a flat on the junction of Albany Road and city Rd Dachs, and spent a lot of time in the Royal George. It was known as "death junction" at that time...

Ric - people at work are now used to the weird running related stuff I do. I could tell them I'd run 50 miles into work in a mankini and they would no longer bat an eyelid!

It's not all black and white working in an office though. Whilst not exactly full on physical, and sitting is the new smoking, I'm sure most runners would make an effort not to just sit in one position for hours on end. I always get up and walk around, usually walk a fair bit at lunchtime and include the occasional walk up the 22 flights of stairs to my floor for example, as well as cycling to and from the station when not running.

Not surprised you are feeling lethargic in this heat Matt - it's bad enough sitting in front of my PC at work, so can't imagine what real work is like!

That said, look at all the fell-running greats (now including Seb!!!!!) and they all had hard, physical jobs so it's not without its benefits even if you do feel knackered.

SG - knowing how to get in front of those Physios in Cressex is a definite plus as they are a good bunch for sure.

Scott - is this your first half then?

I seriously cannot remember a single night in Cardiff where I wasn't drunk (and I lived there for 4 years!). Part of the reason why my short term memory is so crap I guess . Worst one was probably the "ten-pint challenge" (t-shirts available) at the Heath hospital - running there (and I wasn't a runner!) after a tonne of mashed spuds, then consequently being sick after downing the second pint in one and therefore having to start again under the rules probably didn't help

Didn't know you were an ex Cardiff student Dachs - me too (though a long time ago!). I lived in Roath and Grangetown and I met the Mrs in the student union! I bet it's a good half - a bit of re-hydration with a pint of Brains would be good too!

All true! 

Very hot one at lunch, luckily about half under tree cover! Legs a bit tired, but pretty pleased that I was able to run OK last night and today after Wycombe. Last year I couldn't run for a week my legs were so smashed!

Still tempted by Dorney, but not sure the legs will be THAT fresh by Saturday!
