Overdone it?

Just to clarify......i am not setting it up, so when it said '....please inbox me..' that wasnt me...if that makes sense.

Bad news about London, though seemingly not entirely unexpected. We can go three way on that smackdon in 2016!

I am finishing off a task or two in the office then heading off to minor injuries unit for an xray. The rib situation in particular is causing me a lot of discomfort this last 48 hours.

Ru Ner- Looking at these posts, you may give a few on here a run for their money with race report lengths

Overdone it?

I have to say, I had a lovely time in London last year for the first 15 miles, really enjoyed myself and kept thinking how easy it was compared to the pain of a 10k. Amazing how 3 miles later I was having the most torrid running time I can ever recall!

This is what i read on facebook this am-

Call for help folks - A Stratford pr core team has identified a route and has the finance sorted to start a new event.  However, they need to identify local people that can help out - this could take the form of setting up/marshaling or being more involved in the core team, if you are interested could you INBOX me please and i can pass on the contact details. Its in all of our interest to help this event get up and runni

I concur...everyone that I have spoken to who ran in the 80's could run a 32 minute 10k but were finishing last in races such was the quality depth!

I am going to get my wrist checked out as that is sorer now than it was 9 days ago. I have a couple of days off next week so will turn up at the minor injuries unit. I just really can't face the prospect of having a plaster cast on. If nothing else, they end up stinking.

Lou/Mcf- I heard this morning that parkrun is coming to Stratford. They have found a route and set up a core team and just looking for a few other names to get them started with marshalling etc. Might mke for an easier run than the Leamington route.

It's only suspected at this stage, Stevie!!

My ankle doesn't hurt or ache at all so would be surprised if issue. Re the wrist, I broke it in 99 and continued playing footy and doing taekwondo so don't running is an issue.

Well I had a reasonably successful evening. Went to see a lady from my club who does sports injury. She saw me complaining about my nerve impingement. All gratis of course.

Anyway....she spotted my still swollen ankle from Edinburgh and thinks there's a chance I might have fractured it. She then looked at my hand from my fall and thinks I may have fractured that just above wrist. We then moved to lower legs. She thinks I should see a podiatrist as I have very oddly angled feet which must be affecting my running style and so leading to lower leg niggles.

Other than that I'm in great shape.

You are obviously a glass half full kind of guy, Skinny. Pete is clearly a 'there's barely anything in there, you're wasting my time even discussing it' kind of guy.

I got Ashby-de-la-Zouch, which oddly is a place name i've always liked. That gave me 78%. Though if i were to take it seriously, i could just move 20 miles to central warwickshire for 77%. Not sure what happens there (other than lots of good races) that is not available on my own patch.

Hi Iower, sounds like you are on the road to return.  I have fallen into that trip before re over dressing for a race. No wht i do if it appears the pre race situation is going to be cold, is i go to a charity shop and buy the cheapest long leeved top i can find and take it off just before the gun goes and dispose.

I did 3 x 8 minutes at threshold yesterday off 2 minuites. I guess that is in essence classed as  cruise interval?? On that basis i rarely do classic threshold runs. My longer continuous runs are done at mara pace which in my view gives a very decent aerobic workout as you can plod away for 6-8 miles in that zone.
