LMH - incredibly local.  About 3miles away.  The first 10M or so aren't that inspiring, but the last 3 legs are really lovely.  Unlike my own 2 legs, which aren't

Alan, excellent, see you later for a chat.

LMH - very painful at the initial attack, first time I've ever had it in the knee.  When in the toes, weight bearing can be difficult.  Clyde Stride is one of my annual "pilgrimages", I've done it in some form every year, either full thing, relay, or volunteering/crewing.

Great stuff from the t&f lads. 

SL - ships that pass in the night - that's the day we fly out.

Alan - mega mileage, nicely done.  May see you at CK5M on Thurs?

LMH - also great mileage, impressive.


Another dose of the dreaded gout here, combined with a bursitis on the same knee.  Awoke with a balloon on Sat am, but a rheumatologist pal saw me on Monday, stuck a bit needle in the knee, and gave me some "magic beans" to take.  Swelling down a bit, uncomfortable to touch, and can run (slowly) on it - 14M on Tues am.  Sat's 40M race won't be pretty (cos njord and Caz are going and we're out on the Fri night first), but I'll make the start and finish line.

Thanks all.  'Twas indeed a very enjoyable day/night.  Although LS21 exaggerates the whole experience.   The Sunday long run with LS21, njord and Caz was actually 4 AND A HALF miles.  And since the 3 of them had agreed to meet me (on the morning after my own wedding too!!!), and were a no show, I had to chase them round the streets of Glasgow to catch up with them!!


Padams - I'm available for hire to advise on dress-code particularly tying of laces, and height of sporran dangling. 


Re NY - we're staying about 10 blocks south of Central Park, so that's an easy one.  Have found a 5k race to do, but current temps are about 30C with 80-85% humidity, so I won't be hoping for much.  Especially as I have a 40M race back here 4 days prior to the 5k!!

Excellent few days for the thread with great racing, training, biking, drug-taking ( to PP), HR geekery. 

Quite a full-on few days myself, due to getting married on Sat, including 11M with a parkrun with a few from here and other crazy fools.  Think I covered more distance dancing than I did on the run though! 

Honeymoon to NY in a couple of weeks, found a 5k to do over in Prospect Park, but if anyone has any other suggestions......

What do you eat during Ultra?

PP - meant to add, I got asked to do something similar a few years back, but it wasn't Salbutamol I was going to be testing.  They wanted me to sign a disclaimer and promise not to race for 2years if I took their "stuff".  I politely declined and ran a mile.  Just beware of any t&c's.

Much awesomeness Dan and SL - totally loving the reports and the fact that half the thread are trail/mountain/ultra runners.

Well done Joolska on all fronts.

bains - I should add that it's a tough course, and that the changing facilities are old PoW corrugated iron huts.  A quite surreal feeling getting changed in the spot that some pretty shady Nazis (not Nigel Farage, but possibly his granddaddy - bit of fred politics there!!) lived and died.

AlanB - have never run there before - place is lovely, even went back and re-ran the course yesterday in the middle of a 14M.

Pug - the Status Quo of running.  Always one more comeback   Welcome back mate.  Racing yourself fit as always?

LMH - I do like to judge a race by the quality/variety/quantity of cake/sandwich/homebaking on offer afterwards.  Nothing has come close to Strathearn Marathon where the organising club enlist the support of the local WI - 'tis a treat indeed to be served at a table almost by waitress service by aged posh grannies wearing twinsets and pearls, and proper doilies with the cakes.  If The Ritz did post-race refreshments.......
