Overdone it?

Good news DT - thanks for keeping us up to date. 

Overdone it?

DT your symptoms do sound strange and I reckon you must be pleased you didn't try running - good decision. A quick bit of googling and I think Guillain-Barré syndrome is what you are being investigated for - it's a 1 in 100,000 shot so let's hope it's not that. Get well soon and let us know if you are feeling any better. I think your wife sounds very sensible in getting you checked out properly.

Hope you had a good race Tommy and nice relaying of the kids between parents McFlooze family.

I did 13.8 this morning round the woods in my new Brooks Cascadia and was finished by 8:30 so can now enjoy the gorgeous weather without thinking it's a bit hot for a run.

I went to buy Inov8 Roclite 290 or Asics Fuji but the Brooks just felt better on my feet - the Roclite felt like slippers but they weren't gripping my heels and I didn't want to buy shoes that I felt I would have to tie the laces really tight as that has given me problems recently.

I am going to 'run' the Liverpool marathon in 4 weeks, just 24 hours after a 28 hour journey back. I think from reading back this thread that T'Dan is also doing that race. I'll be aiming for 4:30 - I'm helping a friend get round in 4:30 -4:45 so pace isn't important. Just as well as true to form I have done zero runs over 13 miles in 18 months. 


Well remembered Muddy except that you misremembered as Richard is flying half way round the world to run Liverpool FULL this weekend. I think it might be easier flying all the way round the world and then only running a Half marathon.

Good luck Richard!

Lot of people feeling the love for 5 mile races.

Unlucky McF - doesn't sound too bad a run though. Only 5 secs a mile off a PB although 5 mile PBs are normally a bit random anyway due to what I thought was the infrequency of 5 mile races - that is until the last page of posts where there seems to be one every other week in the Midlands.

Good luck Tommy on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend in Edinburgh.

Cheers everyone, Skinny.

Making the change from road running to trail running

Where fell running is concerned I'll stick with it looking mental

I think Trail running is different to hill/fell running.

Trail running is following a trail so would be along paths whereas I think most fell running, particularly races has no set route, only a requirement to leave the start and arrive at the finish various whatever way points they have agreed - but I've never done it because it looks hard work and the downhill bit looks mental - I stick to the paths. I'm guessing though that if that is how they race then they would train off path too.

Haha - you lot are making trail running sound like going up Everest!

I've been running off road a lot more this year and I've found a lot of things come naturally eg you spend a lot more time looking down at the ground in front of you than you do when on the road. Tree roots, rocks, holes, uneven ground can all cause a stumble or fall.

If you are driving somewhere to do your run take a towel and lots of dry warm clothes plus some food and water - depending on how far you are from home/shops the easy access to warmth and hunger satisfaction are definitely things you can miss, particularly if the weather worsens whilst you are running.

If you are going to risk taking your undies/knickers off after your run because they are soaking it's always a good idea to check that the parked car next to you does not have someone sitting in there eating their lunch!

Don't presume if you are running along some grass that looks flat that it will be flat - sometimes there can be nasty hidden holes covered by the grass where it is easy to twist your ankles.

Also running on uneven rocky ground can hurt the side of your feet in a way that never happens on the road - but I'm hoping some new trail shoes (just been running with road shoes to date) will make my footwear more protective - got a trip to Pete Bland Sports planned for Saturday afternoon - exciting.

Well done velloo - I've updated the table to give you another prize - always good to win prizes over the classic distances

In para 2 I think you mean Charlie?

10.1 miles for me this morning including running 4.35 miles round all the holes of the local municipal golf course tee to green which was a fun way to combine my hobbies.

Sorry - double post - I seem to have a very sensitive mouse clicker at the moment.

The above was a X Post with Lou - I would settle for mid to high 40s plus a XT session all the way through to mid December but this week is my first week at 35 so long way to go (both in time and miles!).
