On the home page they have the millionth finisher details from london but more importantly to those in the ballot there is this.

A record number of 253,930 UK applicants had registered for a ballot place in the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon when the application system closed on Friday, with just under 56% of the applications for 2017 from people who have never run a marathon and more than 43% of the total applicants were women (also a record).

Cal - I could actually remember how those drugs work albeit when at uni it was omiprazole we learnt Just not entirely sure how stopping stomach acid levels helps the gall bladder. I guess it may work on some sort of flushing action.

More amusingly never atually said what a small meal was as to me a small meal is a normal person sized meal as Shades an Ian both know based on pre chester roast

Shades - lol probably a sneaky ploy aye 'losing the post'. Someone at works dad had his gall bladder removed via keyhole surgery and hasn't changed his diet. In my case i guess reducing the more dubious foods might be an idea

Morning people

I have NOT entered the ballot yet and nor am i going to bother. But thats because like SK i have a guarnteed place already, mnine is deferring my ballot entry 'win' from last year due to injury unlike SK's speedy running.

On that subject turns out my self referral went walkies in the post so have sent a new form off this weekend and advised that if i not hear within a few weeks ring to check in future as they are usually pretty fast.

Did go to doctors last week as my right shoulder is/was aching which is er wear and tear or as they prefer to refer to it at work, old age..... I also have had sore right lower ribs on and off most of the year which i at first assumed was pulled muscle as it felt the same as it does after a lengthy period of coughing which i have had several spells of this year (I guess NOT runnnig is bad for your health ).

Alas its not a muscle issue, i er have an inflammed/irritated gall bladder and ticking several of the symptoms, namely burping after meals, more pain after meals, acid reflux i am on Pantoprazole for a month. Amusingly going through my history it was no smoking barely any alcohol 1-2 cups coffee and 2-3 cups ta a day on average so nothing majorly bad. Did say eat small meals often, mentioned fat briefly but not specifically why and never asked what i ate normally.

So far i have had no acid reflux issues which is what i expected although how these pills solve gall bladder issues i have no idea despite vaguely remembering how they work from my uni days. Gall bladder area pains not gone but i shall give it time. Personally i think they are more noticeable which may or may not be real or merely an artifact of being aware of an issue.

Now the weather is improving i suppose i should get out on my bike (more) and yes i am picking betterish meals and aiming to avoid extra eating being i am eating less at a time than usual. NB: THat does NOT apply this morning as its bacon butties at work cos the van was latr friday and i owe some people them and it would be wrong to not have one too

Shades - er yes i never bothered booking a room anyway so no problem deferring a  year. Could happily enough get round and it wouldn't hurt to afterwards

Latest london marathon mag arrived yesterday. Should really get around to deferring to next year really.

Off on a mini shopping trip today, handle for yard door at grans so they can open it easier, Halfords to get new brakes for bike and i'll look at what they have in as i'll probably get a new one soonish. Perhaps raid Morrisons too for junk food

kinda crashed on way to sellafield for a meeting this morning. But dont worry it was on the bike not in the car Got a branch lodged in the spokes and thankfully i think went more sideways than over handle bars. Alas that was sideways into a nice pile of hawthorne so i may have one or two (dozen....) varying sized scratches and cuts all over my right arm. And an array of poke marks higher up. Still other than that minor mishap the trip there and back was fine i think. Will see if there is any foot reaction from that and if not with the warmer lighter days probably go out on bike more often.
