Blimey DanA, what a cracker with PB's all the way! Bodes very nicely for Barca. Awesome stuff from Marders, I thought his 65.21 at York a few years ago was shifting!
Great run from CD too, congrats on the V45 2nd prize. Accurate pacing from Gobi, the girlie must have been well chuffed.
Well dones to all the 20m+ people; ThR (over the hills), TR, Tick Tock, CC2, Selbs. Usually impressive full distance effort from Charlie, nice one!
TT.. good to see you more upbeat, hope it stays that way. Nice run yesterday.
Top racing at the XC's Padams & Jools.
Frustrating news at this end. Early Dec I noticed my hammies seemed very tight & my runs/races seemed to be getting slower. I gave up trying to run/stretch through it and decided to bite the bullet and saw my local physio this week. My hamstrings are indeed very tight and apparently hip flexsors similar. Plus weak core etc. So much so that the physio reckoned that in car parlance I was driving with the brakes on. The only encouraging news was that my ITB's are ok! It is apparently going to take several weeks to sort it out via a programme of exercises so on current form & body state I'm dibbing out of the Barcelona marathon. One bit of good news is that I can still run all be it steadily until I get some flexibility back. My own fault for neglecting strength & conditioning at my age but lesson learned. Sorry for the downbeat news on such a fine weekend of racing.
DanA.. I will still be in Barca, though with smoking jacket and matching pom-poms under the circmstances. Happy to join you for enormous Estrellas afterwards too.
Selbs.. If you have a decent pizza takeaway can you send me some?? Both the Pizza and Indian takeaway emporiums in my town are closed at the same bliddy time for refurbishment for 3 weeks! We will starve I tell you, starve!
