[[[[[[[Aw Mr P!!!!]]]]]] - inguinal is the boy equivalent to the one I had, and managed VMLM less than 4 months after surgery, albeit with revised goals. Mine was around 4" long.

Surgery may not be the only option either.

I'm with you about the GP. I attribute everything to running so stay away too.

Mind you my scan man gave me a bum steer.

There are mens loos upstairs in Vanburgh College

I didn't know they deferred @ York, glad to hear it though. Have signed up for the pre-sale again, although should be doing Dublin two weeks later.

Malcs they were pushing *protein* yoghurts, which some were necking at the start!?!

Hope you are feeling clearer and less pressured this week, maybe Chelmsford bound, or going for an interim holding strategy and casting around for opportunities?

angela I remember something you said before, & have a feeling that even backing off the strength work [as insisted upon by the chiro] for the taper had an impact for me, but then if I caused the sciatica with all the abs work, maybe I'd have been OK had my routine targetted the posterior chain more.

Again I lament that nothing is ever clear. The acupuncturist yesterday said it's nothing to do with discs or spine, that my torso is very long & I have an extra lumbar vertebrae, but that the issue is the hamstrings being silly short and like ropes.

Sounds like your experience wasn't unlike mine on Sunday, if a bit more relaxed. I love that you know what you need to do, and have a clear vision and goals going forward.

SK I walked round the Concorde 5 once because I just needed to finish to win our internal road race series, and wasn't even last, I think I managed just under 14 minute miles. Lucky it was only a 5.

Have DNS'd the BUPA 10 000, & the first York marathon actually. Sometimes it is the only way. Might not botehr with the Battersea 10K tomorrow morning I tell you as hamstrings & quads are a bit stiff and glutes on the right are zinging away merrily.

Plus it means leaving house over 3 hours earrlier than otherwise for a seminar.

Almost fancy a go on the bike but that impulse will surely pass.

Too right - not to mention the Olympics! I live a mile ish from the stadium and there was so much whingeing and negativity from some locals despite the obvious immense benefits.

I would tell the organisers & Visit York about the taxi driver too, just as information that they are failing to inspire & educate in ways they may not be aware of.

The switchbacks didn't bother me, and strangely I noticed gradient on the side of the road I wasn't on having missed it when I was! I was going backwards by then.

parkrunfan it was a new thing for me not to be storming through in the second half, have never misjudged so badly. Gosh I'm glad to hear the exploding glass episode wasn't worse.

well done sarah, Wardi, & smig, and yes there were loos in the strangest places. I couldn't find the maths dept this year, but wandered into a building which even had a kitchen. Worked for me!

How did you all go? I scraped a sub 4 but it wasn't pretty.

Hi peeps, well what can I say. Do what I say not what I do maybe. So I went out at 3:50 pace and was coasting to 10K, held for 10 miles, slowed to 1:56ish by halfway, and would have had a word with myself as to sustainability, maybe just go for a sliver of a PB as usual, but too late - glutes and hamstrings on the right side had been seized throughout I should add, so right calf began to say stop this or else.

A couple of leisurely miles later I revised my target to sub 4, and eventually had to pull out a couple of 8:30 miles at the near death to secure that result by a whole 5 seconds!

Totally ecstatic, would have hovered at the mat another 4 seconds had I known.

Never run with sciatica, never try to run a PB with sciatica, you heard it here first.
