Nice 10 miles in the New Forest, thanks for asking Nodster. But I'm always getting grumblings in my right hamstring these days, so now seems like a good time to get it looked at, rather than in a panic two weeks before a race, which is my usual tactic.

UFL - outstanding work . You and Jimbob should really get together, I can see you running the legs off each other...

Now my races for this year are out of the way I'm going to spend some time working on strengthening before next year. And I'm going to get the hamstring niggle I've been carrying for a while fixed. I suspect my 5 year old orthotics need checking, and that's at the root of the problem, so I have a podiatrist appointment for next week.

Have you considered this sort of thing - running skirt with built-in capri leggings? Gives you an extra layer around the bum and kidneys area in winter, which sounds like what you're looking for.

Good luck UFL and anyone else racing tomorrow. It's a bit chilly in London, but that's nice racing weather.

I'll be there. I'm not even running, but I'll be over to support. No reason to assume Paris will be any less safe than London, which is where I spend the rest of my time.

UrbaneFox - I bet we've passed each other at some point, those sound very much like my stamping grounds. Went for a trot up the Regent's Canal yesterday - they've drained the Canary Wharf end because they're working on the lock, it was a bit stinky.

Sunnysider Phil - I'm at the very end of the P&D 18 week plan (just the easy 55 mile version ). I'll let you know how it goes on Sunday...

Goldenboy - with a time like that you must have been very near the pointy end yesterday - good work!  Don't worry, at Comrades you won't have to deal with mud, puddles, dog walkers, people carrying rowing boats across the course or any of the other hazards that made yesterday's run such a delight

Yes, I was thinking 2 minutes isn't enough of a cushion, but to be honest I'm not sure I'm in shape to get all that far under 3:55. I'll aim for 3:52, I think, and hope for the best!

Hi Bob. Training more or less gone to plan, just trying to avoid injury and germs during the taper. Iberia have kindly changed our flight time so we're now not arriving until 23:40 on Friday night, but could be worse, could have been Saturday!
