Evening everyone, don't blame you GM it was pretty parky this morning here but reasonably mild in the afternoon.

Yesterday I went to watch mrs p at Conwy half, shocking weather in the morning but it got quite pleasant by the tine the race started.

I have just got back from seeing the consultant, and he was jolly pleased that the mri scan bore outhis possible diagnosis of Pubic Symphisis (?). I'm afraid the prognosis isn't good for long term marathon running, he recommended at least another four weeks rest before some physio and non impact excercise then perhaps some light short runs. it is extremely disappointing to say the least

Morning just catching up. I wish I could be taking part

Still no better been to the hernia guy, luckily he's A marathon runner, and he doesnt think the pain is due to the hernias and recommended no action.  I'm having mri scan on pelvis this morning and Back to see the ortho guy on Wednesday. If theres no result from that, the next step is a visit to a specialist muscolo skeletal centre, which will be no bad thing I suppose.

good luck with the half GM a test of your discipline,

I would convince myself that I would be a liability and do everyone a favour and stay home.

The sandstone trail is clearly marked, if you're used to following footpaths and seeing those little yellow markers. there are one or two places you could go wrong, and you can find yourself on your own for quite long stretches, I tthink you'd need to recce some of the sections. You wouldn't get lost as in off the side of a mountain, but you could go miles off route If you were unfamiliar. 

Trail Shoes "Drop" Question.

Posted: 01/11/2015 at 12:21

 "Drop" is a marketing factor introduced to persuade people that the effects of poor form, overtraining, going from zero to marathon in 6 months etc etc etc can be alleviated by spending money on a magic shoe.

For the SSC you meet at Frodsham community centre and they bus you down to Whitchurch to finish back at Frodsham.

Hi DS I have a couple of hernias and what I think is an adductor problem, apart from that I'm flying

I see a consultant on Friday, so I'll have a clearer idea of what the next step ought to be, resting till then.

But, with a fair wind, I could still do a marathon in spring, so I'm hanging round for a bit of motivation.
