Thanks in last 5 days, I have had great treatment from Osteo, physio and massage and no real improvement yet which is unusual.
And more treatment planned this week. It usually clears ok so not worried and have never missed a planned marathon yet but more concerned re half marathon at weekend.
Iain. I was never that quick compared to the likes of Steve Way etc but I have lasted quite well. I did sub 3 in my teens too - 2:54 in first one in 1976 at 18 and then 2:41 at 19.
I have run a sub-2:47 in each of the 5 decades - missed my 2:45 target in 2010 by a minute but won't run a sub-2:50 again.
apologises for repeating what was on the other thread - at the moment the world's longest span of sub 3s is approx 39.5 years and if I do it this year (which I'd expect to if I stay healthy), it will be approx 38.5 for me. http://www.arrs.net/TR_SSpan.htm
Some of the others on the list are in better shape than me though and will extend their streaks too.
It gives me more incentive to do it but would rather Tom got the sub-3 and Amy the sub-4 and some of the others in my training group got their target times than I reach mine.
