A few crocked folks on this thread at the mo with a variety of non-running related injuries. Hopefully things will get sorted out before too long.
TR - thanks for the recommendation re the Coastal Marathon. I've decided not to do it, partly because of some of the comments, but mainly because it's elder Lorenzito's 18th on the same day and I've had it pointed out to me (!!) that the two events aren't really compatible.
So, I'm probably going to enter the Thames Meander on 1 Nov (less than 9 weeks away!) in order to get my qualifying time for Comrades without leaving it to the last minute at London. Looks to be a nice flat route and has the added benefit of not being too far away.
On the subject of Comrades, I've hit the "ENTER" button. Feeling slightly apprehensive already but I'm sure it's nothing compared to what I'll be feeling staring up the road at 5.30am on 31 May next year.
Ladder intervals this morning - 1 mile warm up then 1min, 2min, 3min, 2 min, 1min, 2min, 3min, 2min, 1min with 1min recoveries. Pacing a bit erratic as some of the reps were on an uphill stretch and some going down but good to have a bit of variety. I still hate intervals though.
