Oh the chrissie book is my fav book! It's awe inspiring! I find sO much of her that I can relate to- her motivations and drive, just wish I could turn that into performances like her!

Things are in the Pipeline for some great opportunities runningwise. Can't say yet but will let you know soon!

Birky hope the comedy keeps things a bit lIghter!

Ankle seeing real improvements so hopefully running near normal tomorrow! Fingers and everything crossed!

Afternoon all!

Oh birky sorry to hear about the situation at work! That must be very stressful for you and your family. It's easy for me to say things like chin up and be positive but I know it doesn't helP the outcome do I just really hope that it works out ok.

Katie sounds like you're doing Malvern!! Woohoo! It will be great to see you there, I am hoping that my training leading up to it (after dusting for good this peroneal t injury!) will be good and even more than enough so I can comfortably build from it to 100s. Great to have you there!

PSC hmm feet are curious things, if I can say one thing it's that don't forget lower leg strength work and keeping tendons not just joints strong. So important.

Good news is the tendon /ankle pain is significantly getting better so a day or two and I'll be back. At least this time has been used wisely to invest in some strength on the quads and core work. I'm sure it's rested other joints too!

Chris- love the pics!

Kate- sorry I missed your bday too last week ops!

Tommy- I know what you mean about being busy recently, I have been too spindly able to pop in every so often.

Hope everyone is well.

Lovely sunny evening. I'm out for a stroll x

so CLS was ace! the weather was better than expected and the apartment was....well the usual basic! we had ants in our mini kitchen! i brought my mum along who had her sep flat, a bit of a break for her as things at home for her have been horrible. anyway she lvoed it and spent her time doing her own thing and watching from her balcony as we ran on the track.

the OH did absolutely zilch running, which he loved but had physio on his sore back and had tennis lessons- it will be slow progress on that front!

the running itself was ace and i clocked up about 100 miles plus time in gym cross training and stretching, had plenty of sports massages and 'ice pool' baths, the group were lovely and all utterly friendly. katie, it was so wonderful actually spending a bit more time with you, and chatting about everything. i really enjoyed it, i hope to see you again soon if not at a race then at a day on the trails, i was wodnering maybe even to crew a race??? katie did ace learing swim skills and biking and was awesome on the half! i opted out and did a long run instead.

running since the hols has been up and down, with some excellent days, feeling much stronger but since monday i have had a real odd ache/soreness in my 'sides of heel' not achilles tendonitis or PF but side of medial heel and slightly down medial side. i sdont think its stress f but i think and hope its only bruised, so i have taken some days off running and am XT but i need to run for a few clients so will assess this weekend. im sure considering it doesnt really feel very painful when not running that it wont takel ong to heal (....the heel)

anyhoo must go!

waves to ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

hello! right! i finally find time to post! first off let me say ive tried to catch up on the last 2 weeks of banter and in summary:

valis- WOW! WELL DONE! YOU DID SO WELL! big congrats and i hope youre getting bacjk into the swing of things now. i really hope that my SDW 100, NDW 100  and winter 100 go well. i think SDW is going to be the real killer, and in fact i need to sort out my pacers for that one...

mimi anderson did great didnt she! if only i cold be as good as her one day!

katie- gosh i am so sorry about yesterdays problems on your run, how are you feelnig now? and the police are coming tomorrow? i guess the thing about super early mornings is that those kinda people are fast asleep!! look after yourself!
