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.
