Nurse Franny and Loula on the case....*swishes superhero capes* LOL.....seriously though, AF, please, i mean look now, im sat here surrounded by all me medic books
limper...you will soon find out that i am THE worst patient ever and despite my job my cabinet has nothing useful if for illness remedy.an out of date ibuprofen ratting around at the back-if you are lucky......
Welcome Deva! What half marathon are you going to do?
Loula - Well done on another 20 miles! That's brilliant, esp. after a very late night. When is your marathon? As I finished my run today I did think to myself that your ultra is over 3 times as long as I ran. Don't think I'll ever be able to do that ...but you never know. 2 years ago I didn't think I would be able to run 16 miles without stopping.
Franny - enjoy your dinner and champers.
Phantom - Excellent time for a hilly 5K!
Hope AF is OK. When did he say he'd be back?
Lime and coconut for me
Thanks for the welcome. Am doing my home town half in Chester which is not until May, but I wanted to make my first attempt at my local race and it is flat In the meantime I will be entering a few 10ks over the next few months and will chip in with a few parkruns.
You don't sound quiet to me loulabell
oh i am*sits quietly*
by'eck i willl have to try that, it has been sore a few days but i made it worse trying to thrash the males of the NYE gathering we were at playing Nintendo Sport..not tht im competitive or anyfing
i had a blister on same spot by'eck whn i first got my lunarglides..they have quite a high instep and it rubbed , now even though its gone i put a cross shape of plasters over tht area...solved it pretty fast
jude, thank you for your kind words..yes i do sometimes think the same abt the distance.but i have to put it out of my head really, and break it down. my mara is in 3 weeks, depends pretty much on the weather and Gloucester not a million miles but would be a bad enough if icy or snowy and mr llb and miss llb coming too so wouldnt want to drag them out there in it. IF the weather is bad i will just have to find a another mara soonish..really my purpose of aiming for end of jan was to push myself over oct/nov/dec and not lose what id built up which has worked and ive done that. your 16 miles is brilliant and yes if you can do that now i reckon you do more
Diva Duck Welcome.Honest Loula is sooooooooo quiet *spesh when she is in hiding*
Ooh lots of cake on here today.Just back from a walk along the canal with the kids so am having a bit of Christmas Cake. Im just so glad all my booze is gone now.
Franny it was lovely while I was drinking it but I felt a bit rough this morning.Had some Bacon and Scrambled Eggs and felt much better.
I will go the docs if my self help doesnt work.I just hate the Docs and will avoid it at all costs.
Hi to anyone else new.
Ecky, hope you are ok, i hate the docs too we are soooo stubborn! i still have some xmas pud and im a bit peckish now so think i will use up some cream with it
I am stubborn Loula.I have had this problem before and it seemed to go away for a while.I know I have been overdoing it lately as even if I havnt been running then I have been walking miles.I walk so fast too its almost like a jog.
Wohooooooo you did it Boss.That time was really good too.Hope you do go the Docs.
AF!! BOSS !! yay you did and are back safely good time and a fantastic 2nd day result for our 2012 results board
oo um, yes maybe ive been sussed..but i have been a very good girl today and done my miles boss! i was quiet on those didnt have the energy to talk.....or sing
AF - well done today and glad you were ok, but you must go to the dr!
I am not sussex based - based near Nottingham actually, just picked that marathon because I didn't get into London and it was a good date - beginning of Easter holidays so means I have 2 weeks to recover afterwards!
Oh there you all are!!
Happy New Year Crac team!!

'German Cake' in the oven as we speak! A Piece of Cake is a most wonderful thing, in ways some might not have thought of:
Oh by the CRAC Gods, would you look at that beauty?
Then there's this:
Two entirely different types of Cake.
