My #asics262 journey to Paris: Sub-3:30 Malcolm

Posted: 21/07/2014 at 15:56

Malcs - I'm really looking forward to TR.  It'll be a great weekend.  The weather is looking good and there's a great bunch going.  I'm trying not to think about the running!  Great to catch up with Sarah yesterday over a glass of wine on the beach...

Wow, Lorenzo.  Emotion going on here.   Rennur's clip -  how easy Ellie Greenwood makes it look.     I really want to go to SA next year but I'm nervous after all these injury and illness woes this year.  I need to get my hip sorted and take it from here.  Poacher sells it well.  I definitely think this is the point for me to move up to Ultra distance.

Had a great day down at the Coastal yesterday.  The disappointment of not being able to run was soon put to one side when I was asked to hold the finish tape then catching up with lots of running friends on the beach.   I think Poacher was the only runner with a Comrades vest on and I like the way OO put his vest on just to cross the finish line.  Well done OO.  It was a very HOT day and that was a brilliant finish time.  You just seem to get better and better!   TAR sorry I couldn't sort an entry for you.  When I realised I wasn't going to be able to run I tried to get them to let me pass my entry on but they are very strict.

I had my first run in over two weeks this morning - a very slow 3-4 miles.  Where has it all gone....   Hip hurt, knee hurt, chest tight.  I thought rest was supposed to improve things?!! Anyway I will go again tomorrow and have started a course of painkillers ready for the Thunder Run at the weekend!

Hello Malcs et al!

Thanks for the good wishes.  This really has been an annus horribilis for me but I still battle on in the hope that it will get better! 

Off down to the Coastal finish this afternoon to catch up with Sarah. This is my favourite run of the year so gutted to be missing it.  Weather conditions are perfect for it too.

Still hope to see many of you at Thunder Run next weekend. 

Already congratulated malcs on his storming 10k but once again, well done Malcs!  Good to see you've still got it!

Hello peeps!

Sorry I've been awol.   Really things have been crap for me and I'm not doing anything at the moment.  The bike accident led to a very nasty chest infection, which resulted in steroids and double strength antibiotics and almost a week of bed rest.  My knee is recovering from the accident, my hip is just the same but I had a consultant appointment last Thursday and have 2 MRI scans coming up, so there should be progress there now.   

Realising that I will have lost all speed and probably won't get it back (at my age ) I have entered the South Downs 50m in April!    I must have been delirious I think!!

Good to see Kiwi back running and Chick getting back up to speed.  Sorry to see 2old limping, and it sounds like Pink and got Barry tri training!

Will keep in touch, promise!

Lorenzo - sorry I missed your woes.  Can you recap?   Nice to see your boy shifting a bit yesterday!  

Great weather for the Coastal boys.

Poacher/OO - I've had to withdraw from the Coastal as I've not recovered from my chest infection enough to go for a little jog never mind a race.    But, so long as its not pi$$ing down I will be at the end with a case of cold beer....

Successful hip consultant appointment on Thursday and MRI scans booked so I should have more answers within a few weeks.

Booktrunk - is it very pretty and has a bit of everything starting at the coast and going through the hills and into the Borders.  The stretch from Wooler to Yetholm is my favourite where you go through beautiful countryside, hills (but not big ones), woods and if you're lucky you'll see the wild goats and highland cattle.

This is really exciting.  I know the route well and it will be a brilliant race/run.  I'm going to enter.

Good luck with the 5k tomorrow OO and to junior with her pb attempt.

Have a nice splash in the water tomorrow boys.

Speedy - hope you get that hip clicked soon.

I've got an appointment with a consultant regarding my own hip on Thursday. Very annoying that I won't have been running prior to seeing him to check it still hurts!

2 weeks till Thunder Run. 1.5 mile walk with the dog tonight led to a 2 hour sleep after....
