LMH - agreed on the methol benefits, thats why if you could coincide any stopped time with a holiday, it would be an ideal time. I was stopping for a Holiday in August anyway (no sports on holiday), I just didnt start again.

TT - improving at swimming takes time and concentration and isnt helped by fatigue from running, so I'd delay that for a year too

Wardi - i'm only really a keep fitter at the mo, so dont join in and my catchphrases dont seem relevant anymore in my keep fit world. No plans to dons any orange singlets along the embankment any more, although February 20 milers would be less miserable without a sore body. Running Sub 3 used to take up quite a lot of my mental time, it never features anymore. 8-0 still takes pride of place though. 

SL - just about to complete 4 weeks of absolutely no cricket which is the quietest part of the year, October sees the start of various indoor leagues, and training schedules, but I am waiting to find out if the County EPP will include the younger one again (and if so how often) which if he is included should be back to full swing by November, I hope he'll get invited back but County cricket is a ruthless business and there's always someone new on the radar.

LMH - shame about that knee, but you have a lot of running fitness and marathon PB potential to protect, so IF you do have to stop for a while, two weeks on holiday giving a bit back to the other half would tick all boxes. You might have to do what your body needs rather than what your head wants, as tough as thay may be, which is why the holiday could help you out nicely there..

After stopping running mid August, September is going to have zero running miles in it, (it seems that the hardest thing was actually stopping in the first place). The PF thing will need time and I have had some groin/stomach muscle issues that hurt when running so I am doing some strength work on them. My body hasnt had a concerted break from running for a long time, so I'm parking my trainers up until Nov 1st at earliest and focussing on the lapsed swim and bike for a while (until I know the winter cricket schedule and can see what the weekly schedule looks like). I might even keep the trainers on blocks until Jan 1st to stop me even trying for a while (but I have no marathon PB potential or even intention to protect).

I was hoping to see some good news from Padams, looks like I'm a little late...

Padams - Congrats to you and your wife, you have some great times ahead, I'm sure you'll enjoy them. You should make a good dad seeing as you are so laid back.

I managed to keep running 5 or 6 days a week through until the end of July and had even done 3 x 20 milers, but I had a sore arch/heel (PF ?) and once school broke up the rep cricket ramped right up and I got fed have having limited time and having a sore foot when I could find the I stopped totally for a while. 20 zero's in August - which is enough for two years normally. I was hoping to bag a GFA by popping accross the Solent in Oct, but I will just let my GFA expire now. I have a quiet 6 weeks until all the winter training/squads kick off so have started building some bike and swim fitness again, which I'm happier with as I dont like the overall fitness levels just running gives me. I still have problems with the ear/sinus lightheaded ness at times too, so need some good health more than I need to run.

I'll be back when I have some running to report.

Hello Sportfans

I though I'd add my congratulations to RB, very pleased for you.

I also note some gutsy displays in the mountains from Dan ans Stu, well toughed out fellas. Hope Dan is ok now.

Not much to report here, usual mix of 6M at lunch and some 5M commutes, although I did cope pretty well with 18M Saturday, so I still hope to regain some GFA credit at Abo. I was supposed to be running my first race since VLM 2015 yesterday at the New Forst 10 as I originally had a free weekend, but that got scrapped when my two were involved in 4 T20 fixtures between them. Usual lack of time is hampering the training, but I ran a lot of miles before VLM and am still running 6 days a week now (although mostly all short runs), havnt been in the lido or on my bike in months.

LMH will have smoked it, she is badass ! remember she was 100+ mpw for VLM and doesnt run doubles so doesnt know what a short run is.

good to see Padams and Charlie Boy on the podium, although I bet Padams wasnt running laps of the podium waiting for his prize.

Usual default world of 12M long runs, 6M at lunch and the odd 5M commute, but I feel reasonably fit on it. Might actually use my Abo number after all as my GFA credit has all been used up.

thats a lot of shoes LMH, do you have more pairs of running shoes than you have killer heels ? I do, and you can guess how many pairs of running shoes I have.

Getting back to it a bit more, but is the usual pattern of 5M commutes and lunchtime 6s which is a bit of a default amount.

I turned M49 yesterday, which means that I never toed a single start line as a M48. Best make a better effort this next year.

Nice to see so many ladies !

Louise - no idea on how to advise you, there arnt many mums with young babies in this game. be kind to yourself.

So seeing as my issues are all in my head (rather than blood sugar) and should clear finally when this virus goes (other local folks have had it too), and I should regain decent health soon, I thought that I shouldnt waste the miles i did in Feb and March and managed to sneak an Abo number a day before it closed, howvere i have had 5 Abo numbers and never used any it them, and the cricket season starts Saturday so I guess it'll be 6. Kind of appeals to attach my elastic to LMH though !
