Long-term targets...

Anyone have any advice on recovering from an injury like this?

Don't run an 800m time trial?

See a physio and get some proper advice.

Well done DT. Be happy with that for a first marathon.

Well done everyone else, and after a quick scan back to Bob for his sub 40 effort .

In other news I'm up to 7 miles now and should log my first 30 mile week since August this week.

I read that as "struggling with sheep" ... which conjured up an odd image.

Good luck on Sunday WJH. I'm visiting relatives on the South Coast otherwise I'd be marshalling.

Alehouse - are you marshalling on Sunday. I know Adrian is still short of marshalls.

Gentle 4.5 miles this morning with some strides. Rib better during the day but still struggling with sleep.

Some great mileage going on here!

I managed a couple of runs when I was away, including a gentle plod round Buttermere. I'll try and motivate myself for a run tonight or tomorrow morning but trying to get to the end of term awake is a priority at the moment!

Thanks for feedback and opinions. I ignored medical advice and went for a run this morning - 4 miles with some strides and there was a ittle discomfort at first, followed by the odd niggle, but no major pain so I'll just press on through!

4 days on expedition in the Lakes as of tomorrow so running may be curtailed - I'll take my shoes just in case though!

Went to minor injuries with my rib this morning, as it's been getting worse. They say it's probably just muscular and it will get worse before it gets better. They also said not to run until it doesn't hurt as that may delay the recovery. So a dilemma. Do I keep running and accept that my rib will hurt for longer, or stop running and hope the rib recovers quickly?

Portugal sounds good Mr V

Good PB Bob. You should be OK in Lincoln provided the wind holds off!

Fingers crossed on the flu front Dan. Enjoy the taper.

You got a raw deal there Duck. You’re looking in very good shape overall though.

Well run at Eastleigh WJH. You seem to be taking a pragmatic view of the outcome which makes sense.

Sounds like a tough run DT. 3:10 looks sensible (says he, the veteran of zero marathons!)

That’s a lot of cross training Simon. The 6 pack must be developing nicely

 2 4 mile runs for me at the weekend.No worries on the ankle front. I bruised a rib on Saturday night at the climbing wall so lying down is very uncomfortable in certain positions, as is bending over, but I can still run.

If anyone is interested "Running with the Kenyans" is going for 99p as kindle's deal of the day.

Blimey TR that's a bad run. Sending positive thoughts. Have you got anything lined up?

Nice LT session Bob - I always find LT sessions really hard.

Simon - purely cardio at the moment. I'm going to swap 2 sessions to core work from next week (runs up to 4 miles so 10 mins less at the gym!) I'm focused on weight loss at the moment - yesterday I became the lightest I've ever been as an adult! - but am noticing the lack of core strength in my climbing and it can't hurt my running .
