My apologies to V, but Bob's Lilliput comment just made me choke on my tea
Madbee - i hope your disease doesn't hang around for long
My wife is very supportive towards my running which is probably because i do most of it before the kids are awake and the day begins so it doesn't really affect family life. She came with me to the start on Sunday and took my warm up clothes from me just before the off.
As we're on the subject of race pictures, here's a few from Sunday. I'm no.145 and in pics 19 ( i like that one as i'm bang in the middle a few rows back ), 36 and 37 going OUT. Number 172 in pic 71 is a V70 believe it or not !!
Coming back i'm pic 3 and 4 ( just about to catch 3rd place )
And a bit of a write up and 3 man picture on our club's website
Something was pointed out to me at the weekend and that was how low i carry my arms. Looking at the pictures it looks like i do carry them unusually low. I knew that was the case when i ran easy but thought i picked them up a bit with more effort. Maybe i should try to carry them a bit higher to give more drive ?
In other news, out with the club for an hour easy last night. Offending leg felt unusually fatigued in the last couple of miles and is probably back to how it felt on Saturday now so i'll be giving it a miss for a few days.
