Lev.. good to hear from you again.  Is it just the glute or down the hamstring as well like I've been suffering?  Hope you can get sorted.

CC2.. very well done indeed, really chuffed for you.

Muss.. congrats on the Park Run PB.

Good mileage Ryan.  Nice one on the new club, hope the vest is comfy!

Matt3.. sounds like a great effort in the 10 miler.  Sometimes the body does pull up the drawbridge when we're training/racing hard so the odd slight under performance will happen.  Good mileage for the day though!

Well done Charlie, enjoyed the video.  Not sure carting your own camera around the course will get you equal media whore celebrity status with Marigold though!

Had my first run since cortisone injection last night and t'was my first pain free run since Xmas!  Not counting all my chickens yet but I was suitably overjoyed to fancy a glass of bubbly - so I had one!  42m on the bike today as the sun was out.

Congrats on very fine 5000m times Padams & SC, even if it did mean a late supper!

Belated congrats to Matt3 on the fell run win, I did spot that one in AW magazine.

Also belated applause to CC2 for the podium place & medal.

Fantastic training PP, hope it all points to a sub 2:30 at Berlin.  If it does happen I will expect to hear of a post-race feast of German meat products & pretzels washed down with enormous steins of beer. 

A top weekend of running crammed in by Jools too.

TT.. good training from you too, have a great time in Kenya.

After many months of nerve issues in right glute/hammy I finally managed to see my favoured physio today.  He poked around and found an area of tenderness in the glute which he thinks is the origin of the pain - possibly a bursa.  I promptly received a cortisone injection in my glute so I now have my fingers crossed for a pain free run soon!  I might be walking to the pub in an affected manner shortly however.

Physio also suggested I change from Tramadol painkillers to Voltarol or Diclofenac if still needed as the latter have anti-inflammatory properties unlike Tramadol.  You learn something every day!

Best of luck to Charlie at Borrowdale!  Hope all those multi storey car park training steps count for something!

Good to see you back Pisc and making progress.

Well done on the trophy ES, sounds like a solid run on tired legs.

Jools.. good to see you in speedy form this far out, nicely done on the prize haul.

T/Tock.. blimey 50 miles & a prize at the end of it.  Interesting to read about the food options!

Great racing/training PP.

15.8m for me today, longest run in months.  Still got nerve troubles but I can manage them sufficiently and enjoy runs like today.  Enjoyed a few ciders at the local carnival post run!

Bravo & well toughed out SL & DanA, you both conveyed the pain of these events very well.

Good miles in the bank there PP! .. and you TT.

Well done on that sub 19 5k Jools, pretty good for a warm night.

Excellent miles early doors Muss, wise decision to do it in the relative cool.

Went for a run after work tonight and could hardly breathe!  Felt the pace pick up every time I hit a bit of shade but stifling work otherwise. 

Still struggling with a piriformis problem which I've been battling for 7 months now.  I've done all the stretches, core work, rolling about on a ball etc but it still won't shift.  I can still run but it is often like toothache in the right glute/hammy so I'm a bit fed up with it now.  Finally got hold of my favourite physio (ex England cricket physio) who suggested a cortisone injection into the area via my glute.  Can't get an appointment for 2-3 weeks (busy fellow) but hoping this might be light at the end of the tunnel.  I have enough tramadol to last until then so might as well keep going for now!

Hope that niggle proves to be short lived ES.

Nice cycling speed Padams!

Enjoy the Lakes Bains, good to see the recovery gaining momentum.

Great 5k's PP & Mrs PP, very impressed.

Went out for a steady run with Mrs Wardi after work & got a good wetting in a 10 minute deluge.  Park Run forecast tomorrow however says 17-18 degrees & sunny at 9am!

All the best to DanA & SL for the weekend, hope the conditions are kind.

So sorry Selbs, never an easy time for close family.

Congrats to Jools & CC2 on the weekend win/gongs and to Padams for the Park Run win.

Good cobweb clearance Jools, 5k pace always feels 'on the limit' for me so I would guess 3k makes the lungs burn a bit.  Are you going to murder those beers now?

Strong winds blowing all day up here so found some tree sheltered routes for a 4m+7.2m double.

Top effort in tough conditions CC82, enjoyed reading that.

Nice acquisition Charlie, you will have to let us know how you get on with it.  I'm still using a 310XT without problems - can't say the same about Garmin Express though.  Every couple of months it simply will not upload data from the 310XT even though it can 'see' it.  I have to delete the device from Express then add it in again to get it uploading again.  I just wish their software was less flaky.  Hope the half-mara goes well, sometimes low expectations can work wonders.

11.2m today in the afternoon warmth, nice to be able to wear a vest for a change!

Best of luck with your 10k race ES.  Looks like Saturday is the windy day so Sunday is the best day for racing.

Dachs.. sub 33, great effort in the wind.  You need to come up to the Abbey Dash again, never a windy day up here honestly.  Well run Jools too, still a good time post lurgy.

JAP.. good speed on the track & all the best for Wednesday.

Bains.. from little acorns grow etc.  Hope you can make progress from here.

Bufo.. cripes congrats on the sub 15 5k & the win.  Great speed!

Rest day yesterday which was opportune as the rain/wind last night was torrential and sideways.  Woke up today to note that the blue sky had re-emerged so couldn't resist an early 4m bimble.  7.5m later to complete the double.
