Loved loved loved reading your report, marrows!  Excellent result and AG win. In the few triathlons I did, I used to place quite well in my AG and OA but was eventually put off by all the gear and swag being waved around.  I returned to the comfort and simplicity of running. Speaking of which, the Achilles are behaving with some excellent Graston therapy applied with brute force by my new chiro, TAR.  Cheers for asking. How are yours?

HUGE WELL DONE, Marrows!  That is a fantastic time for a HIM!  Report is due I think...

Blimey, Badbark. Thank goodness you are alright now. I do think you were compromised going into that race.  Well done for listening to those who told you to stop. You know it was the right thing to do and that is certainly a valuable lesson learnt there.  It seems with ultras it is not about the finish line but the journey there.  Recover strong and fully.

Go Badbark! Here's hoping you have the race you deserve after all that hard work.

hello VTr!

marrows - what protocol are you following for your Achilles? I'm curious as mine have been chatty of late. Keep it easy as I'm sure you will.

Poacher you are a beast.  Well done!  I am a bit nervous of entering in 2015 but Minni may never forgive me if I don't...

PMJ well done on achieving your sub-18 5K goal so soon in the year!

GD - bad luck.  Do you think you prefer the training to the racing?  You seem much happier when running than approaching race day. I think I am more a runner (hobby jogger?) than a racer to be honest and the thought of a race unnerves me rather.

Quick read back and I am keeping fingers crossed that Gul and Lorenzo feel fighting fit very soon. I am sure it is a minor blip for both of you fine specimens.

marrows - are you more of a glider than a gazelle?  I have a friend (1:21 HM) who ran 2:47 at Boston this year but her incremental improvements are getting smaller and smaller as she is a shuffler and glides.  She is convinced she has nearly reached her maximum paces with her run style holding her back.

Just popping in to say hello to all. I was marshalling at that marathon on Sunday marrows and it was jolly hot. Well done on your win! Had I known you were racing I would have given you an extra cheer. You might have spotted me with my dog, a Hungarian Vizsla, at the checkpoint at Richmond Gate? 

It must be the fashionable thing to boast a tetchy Achilles currently as both mine have started talking to me. I made the stupid mistake of not being cautious enough when I arrived in the UK and indulging in the glorious running terrain here and, without my usual arsenal of preventative measures (sports massage therapist, hot yoga and sports chiro) have ended up with niggles in both ankles!  Luckily I am getting connected with people with healing hands who can help me here now.

Moving  is better than not I found having had a year off previously and tried everything from a fracture boot to plasma injections, and I think marrows' approach of low intensity miles will be the best approach.

so, you see, AR, you are in good company here?

Thanks all for the pat on the back.

MsE- apologies for the image of me that you have lodged deep inside your head, must be very disturbing.

Welcome back to Blighty!

GM- The next race for me is the Newbury 10k in a couple of weeks which is a little on the long side and isn't a quick course.

I'm pretty sure Also-ran won the V40 prize last year, so that would be something to aim for. 



We must never meet or, if we do, you will have to be prepared for me to sit staring at your belly wondering about the current overhang.

I omitted to say well done to OO.  Showing us all how to keep on doing it!
