Leggy - my advice is just to go backwards until you find it

9k run tonight to keep the legs spinning. Felt very nice. This time when I coughed my body didn't convulse and come to a complete and abrupt stop. So I'm taking that as a good sign.

You feeling any better Jimbob?

Anyone getting a bit excited?

Rico, yes a bit, anti Bs starting to do their thing......not in quite as dark a place as I was 2 days ago. I'm realistic about my expectations, I'll do as well as I can and be happy with any result ....

Greg, a cold FFS? 

anyone in two minds about Corcoran's, this is a drink up Viking style, we will drink flagons of ale and we have wenches and everything (they where Eiffel Tower dresses)

Spot on Dids. It's like you had a camera on me watching my every move. First I was medically assessed on the phone by a narky gp receptionist who has about as much medical qualification as a pack of Morrisons value tomatoes. She concurred that I could see the doctor "in 24 hours" then put the phone down on me while I was explaining that I was not in a good place. Took the bus to A&E and I've never seen a busier ER. It was heavo but unbelievably I was seen and clear of the hospital pharmacy within the hour back on another bus to go and collect my car from it's MOT and service.

Well said - TD! Especially the bit about always someone faster or slower.

Jimbob - you mean you left something out? Ha! I see from a previous thread you've entered the Abingdon marathon, right? Me too. Good luck in Paris. In fact, good luck everyone, not long now!

Yes good luck all ....

Orapidrun: I signed into Abo as I heard it's a quick one - a bit "clubby" so hopefully be able to drag a decent performance out of it ....

the list gets added to as I remember more stuff I might need

there'll be one more publication later this week with more stuff added. You can never have too much stuff, like I said before, an assassin selecting from his arsenal .....

Impressive list, I'm panicking now as I don't half that stuff, I'm going to struggle finding the M&S hot cross buns and the contact lenses.  More like a Goonner selecting from his Arsenal.

I liked you Jimbob... until now. YOU"RE A GOONER?!?!


I've always known about your horrendous taste in football teams Ems, like you've always known about me supporting the red-shirted/white sleeved half of North London (you've only forgotten) - we've had this conv before!. I just don't bring it up here on the thread as it's footy and it's a bit dull talking about that on Runners World. Also, our relationship is so volatile - do we need any more spice than we already have?
