Somewhere between 13 and 13.1 is a good place to blow up!

Liking the plan GM. Looking forward to the race report already!

Had an MRI on my lower back yesterday. Results expected to take two weeks. Managing a run every other day at the moment. Still in a lot of pain, but regular core work is helping.

Did manage a 48:32 10K last week without any real training, so all is not lost. And I am ancient so can't be bad really.

Epic report Minni. I could almost feel your pain on that last hill.

Fantastic to see you back running marathons again.

Thought that would be the case Sean. It takes me an hour to get to Folkestone!

Hi Sean,

Malling. It's a new one (5th week). It's at Leybourne Lakes just off the M20 near Snodland. I run there sometimes anyhow since it's only 5 miles from home. Where do you do yours?

Ruffles - congratulations. I'm sure you'll manage to keep exercising through the pregnancy. I managed to keep going all the way through both of ours, and the second time we had twins!

I'm with Angela - I find nothing remotely enjoyable in swimming!

Thanks Malcs. I thoroughly enjoyed ParkRun. I'm expecting to be there again Saturday - injury permitting! You should venture down there sometime. Only 20 minutes down the M20 for you. It's almost flat and on firm tracks - a few puddles but zero mud. I think you would be very quick around there!

The foot would probably like cycling in proper cycling shoes. The rigid sole stops the foot bending so you shouldn't do any harm. Having said that there isn't a lot of point in buying a pair of shoes that you will only where a couple of times!

Can't wait for this to begin, GM.

Stan/Mr P - I echo Malcs sentiment!!

Angela - how's the foot this morning?

Stan - A good time there even if you are a bit disappointed. I did indeed get a voucher but having tried to activate it this morning I keep getting redirected to a site that doesn't exist. 

Have you had any luck?

Chicksta - Yep, time to get the base stuff in place! Always one of my favourite phases leading up to Christmas. I, also, think it helps to have an easy month before embarking on this. Enjoy.

Angela/GM - I'm rally looking forward to the detail of the plan.

Great running though Sean. Well done mate!

I did my first ever park run today! Under instructions from physio not to run hard so started comfortably intending to run 7:45mm. Did run a bit harder averaging 7:27mm.

Nothing to write home about but it's a start on the long road back. Was 2nd old git though (MV50) ????

TR/ Mr P - how you both doing? Long time and all that!

Martin - sorry to hear  an issue with your hip but if you're allowed to run then it can't be too serious. I too would be targeting 3:15 if my physio will relent and tell me I can run endurance events again!

Malcs - of course you are back. You have more than 3300 posts to your name - more than 1000 more than me, although pale into insignificance to Seren's THIRTY SEVEN THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You'll never be able to pay Angela enough. She has so much on you!

Too Old to Run?

A friend was surprised I still run.
