Hi all.   I am back.   Three months out with first an inflamed cartliage, then itb and tendinitis in the ankle.


Upto 20 mins running so far as really taking my time to build milage.

Running and rowing (erging)

what sort of strokes per minute am I meant to be doing?    I have got my session upto 30 mins now at 35 some (damper is on 5).  I have read some of the pete plan and it mentions 30 rpm.

I know the route quite well.   No massive climbs but it is technical.

Thanks DE.   I've been doing all the stretches and rolling a man could.I'm hoping with a my good base that a good ten week training block will be enough to get me around.q

Hi all


no running for me for a month now.   Tenditis in the ankle and ITB.   Already dropped out of the 50 miler in a couple of weeks.


hopefully will get fit for lakeland 100.  


Been to two physios and all they did was manipulate me a little and then say it will be ok.   Does not inspire me with confidence about them.

60%?  That is bloody low.     Dont think I would get that low running.


well my training for lakeland 100 has come to a juddering halt.   I always wear adidas supernova sequence for my road runs and the hybrid versioN for off road (called riot). Looking for some extra comfort I bought  nb Leadville.   Since then I have had ankle/shin/calf problems on o e leg and ITB in the other.    now I am kicking myself as the nb have no support and with having collapsed arches this is where I think my problems have come from.


14 weeks to go.......

I did it last year.   Aid stations are every 6 or 7 miles.   As it has been dry recently should think it would be ok in road shoes. 

Apocalypse 100

I would say the loops.   The beginning bit up onto long mynd,  the middle bit on stiperstones and the end back to long mynd are not to hard to follow.
