Overdone it?

Masochism and team spirit, Pete. My foot is not completely better but does seem to be slightly improving. I'm not an especially patient person though.

Well done Tommy! That sounds like a great result even with the stitch.

Roclites are lovely and wide at the front. I think that model is a unisex one. I usually just run in shoes that are exactly the same size as all my normal non-running shoes, though, so you might want to do whatever you normally do.

I'm not sure I could do indoor rowing for more than half an hour at a time as it makes my bum ache. Not from the actual exercise, as I don't think you're using it, just because it's really uncomfortable.

I have also got some Saucony Peregrines, muddy, which I think are similar to the Kinvara trail shoes, and they are good in some circumstances (nice and light for not-that-muddy woodland trails) but are the ones I was wearing when I slipped in mud while reading a signpost and landed on my arse. My Inov8 shoes are not waterproof but don't seem to hold it IN either so that's fine, if a little cold in the snow.

I am doing London but have no idea when my plan starts, not that it matters as it does not involve indoor rowing.

These ones are the best I have. Also good on ice.

Question regarding trail race

Or at least you'd want different routes, if you'd gone somewhere scenic on purpose and it was that nice, you'd want to see more of it.

I think it's shoes as well as practice: I've got trail shoes that I trust and other trail shoes that I've been wearing when I've slipped over on my arse in mud.

Question regarding trail race

I think the hassle and expense of having the race spread over two days would seem odd for such a short distance. I might do it if it was near my house.

Or where you're in a race and the marshals from the host club encourage their clubmate by yelling 'come on Mike, you can't be beaten by the second lady!' whereupon he redoubles his efforts.

Bad luck, muddy. What I think is if there was a hand-drawn map of the course pinned to the village hall noticeboard pre-race (or equivalent) then it is your fault, and if there wasn't, then it's the nonexistent marshal's fault.

Meanwhile I have been to the gym to do some resentful indoor rowing. Grr. I think my foot is starting to get better though and as 'injuries' go, 'complications from a mild ankle sprain' is probably one of the less serious ones. I'm just being super-careful to avoid letting scar tissue form in my foot because I don't want a chronic annoying foot niggle.

Very jealous (but pleased) that Madbee is back running. 

Not ran in 5 days exam coming up

Blimey, that is pretty easy though (just watched video). I'd be disappointed to be told to stop at the required level because surely all the fun is in smugly seeing how far you could get.

It's okay Charlie, we women like it when men are really sexist about getting 'chicked' because that makes it more satisfying to beat them knowing they will be pissed off. Well done for winning a tenner, McF! I have got some ice on my foot right now, and have been applying voltarol. It doesn't seem to hurt any less overall, but it's not worse either so I live in hope.

Why has Tom Chinery been deleted?

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
