Sub 3.30 Tim: #asics262

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 11:28

It's a bit crap Tim. Spoken to you on Twitter of course but thought I'd pop in here to wish you the best.

Like you pointed out - it is a bt of DejaVu. However do not think it could just only be a stress fracture. I was told that by Sarah but turns out it wasn't a stress fracture after all - but not diagnosed until after the run.

Turns out I had Anterior Compartment Syndrome. This was diagnosed eventually by my cousin Jon (who is lead Physio for Bupa) - read about it here: 

http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/sport-injuries/ankle-achilles-shin-pain/anterior-compartment-syndrome

I'm not questioning anyone - but the initial diagnosis was wrong and I spend the whole of the campaign thinking I had a stress fracture.

Good luck with everything and now I'm off back to the quiet of simply lurking - especially as there is no Sub-5 category

Well done to everyone who made Bootcamp. I'm soooo jealous as it brings back so many memories for me - from start to finish the whole process changed me as a person. I'd do it all again tomorrow.

Andrea B: Where in Carmarthen are you? I applied for a job in Bro Myrddin the other year. i'm in Brynaman.

So again, good luck to everyone.

Hmmmm - seems the forums 'are' moderated with my post telling seren to wind her neck in being deleted or removed. (I cannot find it anyway).

Well done Runner's World. Now take proper ownership of your forums.

Oh seren nos - you are really starting to grind on my nerves now. You really have to get over yourself. 

"paid or unpaid" blah blah blah - live with it. Are you really such a bitter person?

I took 4 days unpaid leave when I entered. So what.

You have your opinion and it's respected - but get over yourself and wind your neck in. I am not the only 'winner' last year that you upset constantly and I really do not blame people for moving their votes to Twitter. You are one person - so I doubt they care whether you give them the vote or not.

Seren Nos - I'm sorry for the rant but you keep winding me up. If you don't like things go and join another forum. Running Bug is a good one.

There are some fair bitter people on here. IT'S NOT YOUR FORUM!!! It's for everyone.

In my opinion - Runner's World need to start moderating these forums.

Sorry guys. It's been a stressful week and some people just take the biscuit.

ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the sub 3-ers

Well done all. I'm not going to be following this group as I'm not there yet - but I do have a question for you all:

I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

Hi 4:30 ‘ers

Nice to meet you all. Congratulations to you all for getting to where you are. You must be buzzing. Now the work begins Hopefully I’ll stay in this forum - it’s up to you guys to keep us here interested for the next week or so before we move onto the winner threads. Good luck to you all - there are some tough forumites here who need pleasing

This is the thread I will be following as I’ve been aiming for a 4:30 since Paris. I’m down to 4:42 so not far to go.

@Craig Jenkins: Welcome. Great bio. Thanks for sharing.

@Kirsten Sharpe: Be excited - but manage expectations. There will be some tough questions asked on the forums. The bug you get with running is a bugger. But well done for finding it.

@Isabel - Hey you - you made it back. Miss you Louise says hi.

Everyone - Isabel was a legend in Paris. What a girl. Well worth listening to.

Where are all the other 4:30 runners?

Message to you all - I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the first timers

Hi First Timers,

Nice to meet you all. Congratulations to you all for getting to where you are. You must be buzzing. Now the work begins Hopefully I’ll stay in this forum - it’s up to you guys to keep us here interested for the next week or so before we move onto the winner threads. Good luck to you all - there are some tough forumites here who need pleasing

@charles henderson: Welcome. Thanks for posting your bio. That’s a greta job you do. I thought about becoming a paramedic once - but never went along that route. You guys to a great job. I was like you - wishing that I’d found running earlier in life. It has changed me. Good luck to you. My only advice to you would be to keep confident - but manage your expectations (wait until you meet Victor for advice on managing this stuff.)

I agree with tinyrunner85 - not all first timers get it wrong. Some are blighted by injury! Ahem.

@Ant McNeill: Great to read your bio mate. Great stuff and again similar to my story so I can relate to you. I’d hit a 38” waist!!! M&S trainers? NO matter - a run is a run is a run.

@Sean Prichard: How about a bit more bio Sean before the forumites realise you’ve not said much Welcome. Tell us about what kit you use….. your life… you belong to us for the next week or so…. I see you mention the Cardiff Half - are you Welsh? You ran Swansea 10k as well? So you have to be local - this could benefit you with my vote.

@Harriet Burrows2: Number 2? Is there another Harriet Burrows on the forum? Tell us a bit more about yourself Harriet.

Message to you all - I’m a kit geek. I love the kit, the trainers, the technologies etc - tell me what you are all running in and wearing. Do yo uhave a brand? Yes it would be easy to say ASICS all the way - but I wasn’t wearing Asics when I got through. I wa Ron Hill and Adidas.

@Andrea B - Tregaron - sounds good. I'll take a look via Google in a bit. We have ESTYN in this week so any thought of running/swimming has been on hold.

I need to get back out there. @Malcs - I'm planning on getting back out there

@Andrea B - I've entered the Llanelli Half this year if you are running that.

Good luck everyone whatever run you do.
