Happy birthday Leggy, hope you have a good one
One convalescing child = track session tonight when relieved from duty. Might not be as doomed as originally thought, phew.. not aaa-chooo!
rather you than me on the track session. My legs have nothing to give. Hopefully i'll manage one next Tuesday.
Happy Birthday Leggy
message to all: BEWARE THE 'EFFING LOOSE DRAIN COVERS. I was doing my short commute run today. I'm very aware of going up and down pavements, pedestrians, cyclists, slippery sections etc. Some peds stood back to let me run through without having to stop - very nice of them I said thank you as I ran through. The route they gave was straight but contained a seemingly solid drain cover. As I stepped onto it, it gave at least an inch which was enough for me to stumble and have an awkward ankle turning moment followed by a 4 letter word beginning with F at a reasonable volume. I stopped and walked back and forth for a couple of minutes to get the joint moving again, and examined the drain cover, which was more like a 4cm tilt when you put your foot on it. Dangerous. I finished the run, it felt ok (1 more mile) got the ice straight on it here at work. It's still a bit sore but it could have been worse. I was just thinking this is the last week of proper training for me and plotting the remaining sessions before taper. You can't take your eye off the ball for even a minute. Take care all.
