Tek - hope your feeling better soon. I had it in Feb....not nice.

Fiona - Be careful with that tendon.

I have been lurking, but my memory is awful so can't remember everything. Well done to everyone getting out there racing or running. 

I have a long way to go. I will be lucky to be running again this year but trying to stay positive with lots of cycling and swimming. I have even booked for improver swimming lessons starting next week! I am seriously hoping to maintain some fitness but who knows?! I have re-thought my plans for next year, so now all my spring running events have been forgotten as I felt I would push to hard when eventually ready and likely do further injury. Instead I have registered for Scotland Coast to Coast. It will be different but hopefully all the cycling I am doing now will help!

First time I haven't been jealous at the mention of a marathon Jimbob! I hated every minute of Amsterdam Marathon! Not sure why...... 

Another check up today.... 3 weeks on and a slight improvement. A long way to go. I feel bad admitting it, but I am not missing running one little bit - but thats probably because I can cycle and swim and do upperbody stuff Unlike the last time I was laid up!

Well done to all out there today. I think there has been some awesome PB's! 

Nothing so brilliant here. I  did my first back 2 back days of cycling- Very short but still being careful with this injury- Followed by 1000m swim tonight. Three weeks after LN now, but still another 5 weeks they say before I can attempt running. I am hoping it won't be that long but not pushing it either! I have 11 months before my next event so no rush!

The only way I have found to juggle long runs was early morning before the rest Of the houshold was awake! Otherwise kind friends. 

Just done a twelve mile mixed x country/ road cycle. I know its not a lot but right now it was heaven and the most I have managed in weeks! First time with toe clips to. Is there a knack to getting your foot in them on the go?? obviously I haven't found the knack yet but did find the difference on hills today with them. 

Good luck to folks tomorrow. Very jealus of those in Albathingy!

No TD, but as you already know I have a physical job and two daughters to support. Time off is not an option.

And cos I can't do much else I have done 'C' shopping KS! 

update on the Injury - I can weight bear on the leg for about two hours before I am reduced to limping, although there is pain present during this time. Still a long way to go.

Congrats Nell It appears you along with lots of others have the event bug!

Lol Nell. I have got my beedy eye on an event for nextbuear and patiently awaiting it to open! I have already managed to talk someone into supporting/ back up as its a point to point course in the middle of nowhere And involves more than trainers!
