cragc, ouch that's bad news on the back issue, hope it sorts soon. typical though isn't it , not practising what we preach, I do it all day at work then go home and wont touch a painkiller for love nor money even though I know very well itd go in half the time if I did- mind you that's IF you could find tablets in my house. considering my job my house is a pretty useless place to be ill !

thatd be cool if you could get in NDW100, we could chat for most of that im sure lol!

sky running is still going on in the back of my mind too, Itd be post  NDW100 so id have that training to rely on at least ( I think ) so we will see. I might see you at either

( this is the vision I had in my head anyway ) until I stabbed it in some mud , got stuck, stick broke down to a size only fit for a daschund  dog and I nearly went headlong into a bush- cue end of kilian dream sequence. *sigh*

ah well, off to the ultra trail website to check out poles....not THOSE kind of poles bosspromise!!

oo Nandy I hope your injury gets sorted and marathon training continues well. keep us updated!

Boss, I really don't know what you are insinuating by moi and our dear Franny being norty wiv men 6 packs. good luck tomorrow for your 10k.

chilli I hope you are taking things easy young lady and resting up *wags finger sternly*....well done on you PR vote and new shooooooz...mm love a new shoe

MC, hope you pick up , this weather doesn't help any of us does it? we need sun sun sun !!!!!

well I did a very windy and mega muddy trail training run for 13/14 miles last Saturday on the Ridgeway-oh my goodness me , between nearly getting blown away ( good job I had bottles of water in my pack to hold me down)and sliding like bambi on ice in every bit of mud I had a really excellent time! blue skies n sun and high up on the ridge was so good to be up there few runners out but mostly walkers with very sensible trekking poles. ( I will be needing these  for perhaps my abroad ultra)

As I continued to slide and nearly end up on my bum I looked rather enviously at the 'pole people' as I tagged them that day and wished id had the sense to get some and try them out up there. ! in the meantime I scampered off like a dog and found a nice big stick to pretend I was a proper trail ultra runner like Kilian and Emilie ....yes ahem, was aiding my balance nicely skipping along..
