We'll have to leave it to the owner of the problems (ie Bus) to resolve then
I put my back out years back, and I'll always remember the doc advising against much standing, lying and sitting.
I think that left me with levitating. And at an angle!
The curious thing about running, training, sport and this thread. Is that it reveals character, or lack of.
He'd be fine ignoring the so called advice and running, rather than make things worse by sitting in a car.
Then when they need to take advise [sic], they can't. They can't because doing so will somehow diminish them as the men they think they are.

Dean - I was the one who said that! Ric's post seems to be saying ignore the physio as he's trying to con him!

It's like the time Dean said some on this thread train too hard, and some not hard enough.I genuinely didn't know if i was in the "train too hard - for meagre results", or "don't train hard enough - to improve the meagre results" camp.
Bus, our oldest son Ric does have a real knack of wording his philosophising in a way that certainly can be read as a colossal dig at times. Not often such a monumental retort is constructed like that though
Ealing mile results out quickly. 4th in the end, rounded up to 5.08 - to equal my slowest there
The winner did 4.56, but 2nd and 3rd weren't under 5 as I'd wrongly said, but were 5.03/5.04. It really shows how long that straight is, as I was sure they were getting under 5 from my view - but well off!
And looking back in Jan & March, I'd done a 10 the day before, solo in Jan and doubles in March. However, I hadn't run in the morning either of those days, so maybe that made a bit of an effect.
Who knows - once more unto the bridge we go!
That is the big question isn't it! There's definitely something to them, but most people seem to suggest it's for longer distances, and you don't see much from the short stuff.
While 2x 5.03 in the Vapors versus 5.08 in Hyperions looks a big difference, it is still a small sample, over 4months.
I'd like to have another few goes in the Hyperions first, after a different build up.
I dare say so much can affect such a short race - anything from how you feel on the day, to the build up, to the race you get into. Plus running already the same day this time, versus not the other times. Probably the classic "shoehorned" in race, which is never going to be a maximal job.

And as ric isn't around let me be thread ars..sorry straight talker...Follow that physios advice son! You've had years of issues now and if it's been bad enough to go to a physio you have to then follow his advice.Might get you back racing a lot sooner and better 🌷👌
That's some classic freestyling there!
If that was a day after the 20, no wonder it felt plenty, but a tidy mile thrown in. As I found yesterday, you certainly need to work on the shorter stuff to get it stronger!
Joined the Handy Cross lot last night at Marlow track for a few mins, as they've finally sorted ownership, after a year or so! Therefore, I'm fully paid up for a year on the track now
Did for a second wonder about joining their 5k time trial, but after 2 runs with 1 being a race the same day, that thought didn't last long!
Last Wycombe game of the season today, a completely awkward 5.30pm kick off job...so best get going.
To stay up, we need to not see Plymouth win, us lose, and a 14 goal turnaround.... so we "should" be safe.
But the manager is clearly off, after about 6.5-7 years, so might be a love in post match
