Peeks in sheepishly wondering if anyone recognises overweight fat cat....
Apologies for not keeping in touch. Have had holiday and am back in India for 2 weeks, so an afternoon catching up on a few thread issues here.
Firstly 200mins. took some time to find out what the story was, but did so eventually. I missed the 200miles day but will do something today on the tready and send many healing thoughts to you mate.
Secondly, congrats to Minks, don't think I've been been on since the starting point.
Not sure I can list all other injuries, racing successes, recoveries, personal highs and lows that I've skimmed through, but its good to see you all here.
I gather BR's running again, good on you, hope the reovery stays solid, Hill work is obviously good for you ;-)
From this morning: NZC, its very runners nightmare going off course. I've done it twice, both off road. Once on a relay costing the team ca 2 mins and once in race where the big left arrow in front of me caused me to turn right. On both occasions other runners saved the day and called me back.
Had very intermittent running over the last 8 weeks. had to do a lot of cycling to let calf/achilles heal. then after running for about a week have had a holiday break and now 2 weeks travel. Managed a flat 10k in 45mins early august as a trial. Quite pleased to not be slower, but a long way to get to sub 1:40 HM again.
It's Ganesh Charturi here so there's a lot of elephant idols about. had a sight seeing tour and went into one of the old temples. Had to smile as the guy switched the offering plate indicator note from 20Rs to 100 Rs as I came round. I did the honorable thing btw.
Off for an interval session now and then some Indian food (curry would be an insult). Chennai early tomorrow.
