On swimming my technique probably has flawes in it left, right and centre but I actually find bi-lateral breathing the most comfortable for the neck.
DrDave - happy belated birthday!
Jools - solid 14m other day and 10k. What are you aiming at in Frankfurt?
DanA - amazing picture, that was actually my favourite spot on the trek me and my Stepdad did. Truly mind blowing views! That's some serious distances you were running too.
PP - tough training from you. And yes these flat races are a different kettle of fish haha. Actually trying to run fast/hard felt very different and very hard. Totally different kind if hurt too, but it was (uncomfortably) fun!
TR - enjoy your fishing/surfing, where are you going for this?
Lev - what Jools said, have a rest for a few days or some easy running, sound a bit blown out
CW - wild camp sounds ace. On grip/wet rock I don't think any shoe is going to be perfect. I think it's more to do with confidence and practice descending but as I've said before I think the mudclaw studs have better grip than 212s in general though the shoes are slightly heavier.
Just some steady running since my 10k. Did 7m yesterday and can feel a bit more road fitness coming back. Slightly annoyingly today I had to cut short my run at 5m as my calf had really tightened up and despite some stretching, brief massage and trying to run it off it just got worse. No point ploughing on risking injury and I'll just swim this afternoon instead as an addition. Probably x-train for a few days and pick the running up again midweek in London which might also help shift a minor heel niggle on the other foot.
