Monster read back achieved and the stand-out has to be SJ's Outlaw. Chapeau sir!
Glagow was awesome and I'm sat wearing one of the two T-shirts I ended up buying. I'm waiting for kitchen no. 2 to be delivered. Hope this one goes better!
I had physio on Tuesday last week and she said my pelvis was twisted and she put it back where it should be. I felt very sore and weak afterwards so didn't attempt a run and on Sunday walking around Glasgow I was very aware that I was not fixed, although on a day to day basis it has been much better. However, by the time we'd walked back to Glasgow from Hampden in the evening (no shuttle buses in sight!) both hips were hurting, which was actually an improvement. I woke up on Monday with no pain and decided to brave a little run on the treadmill. 30 minutes, quite slowly, hip flexor tight but no hip pain. So on Tuesday I braved an outdoors 'run'. Average pace about 10 min miling because I can't run downhill properly. I'm forefoot running on the injured leg and midfoot on the uninjured one, mainly because my legs are different lengths again. Pelvis clearly not in the right place. Hmmm.
My referral on the NHS has come through for 20th August, which is flipping ages away, and it's miles and miles away from both home and work.
Anyway, the athletics was brilliant and I loved seeing Marigold and my clubmate Amy Whitehead finishing top 10 in their marathons.
