desres pass the Canaries, how lovely!
what: club run later
last hard: last night
last easy: saturday
have a good day all
To join in on the helmet bandwagon, I also feel naked without one. Riding to work every day is a bit hairy and I dread to think what could happen...
3 miles run last night. Legs surprisingly ok although felt a bit stiff all day. Today feel better, though still some stiffness. Drove in today as wasn't feeling up to cycling this morning.
Rest day today.
Hope all the ailing recover soon.
The warm spring weather has been replaced by warm grey weather here!
Have a good day all.

Things are progressing nicely at the momment knee wise and I'm now considering adding a third run into the week.
Had a very long and hopefully productive consultation with physio this morning: the most thorough discussion/investigation I have ever had...1 hour 45 minutes! Much studying of the scan was followed by a physiology lecture including powerpoint. Video analysis followed whilst walking, standing on one leg/heels/tiptoes etc. Conclusion is that the Achilles injury is a result of a number of muscular weaknesses, inefficencies or misalignments, ranging from lower back, hamstrings, quads, calves, ankles to muscles in the feet. These problems have been compounded by the misdiagnosis of orthotics, in her view (so that's the 4th person since Christmas, although again she did say that they are suitable for some people). She moved my feet into the correct alignment and this immediately impacted on my hamstrings and quads. Lower leg and foot were taped into quite a comfortable yet correct position and was videoed again walking then running briefly on the treadmill. A few exercises to do for the feet only. Walking a couple of miles a day would be helpful. Have to be patient: she works on 100 days as the baseline figure for a complete cure of the underlying issues, but hopes that I will be able to do some gentle running long before that. Very impressed, and hope that this is light at the end of the tunnel rather than another false dawn!
And no to the lyrics, again...but how I did not get yesterday's!!
Bit of a catch-up for me again... the few days leading up to a meeting are always a bit crazy, and this time I had a presention to do on the same day. Spent the remainder of the day getting small but necessary tasks done, as I just couldn't face any more mental energy!
That sounds very positive, Alehouse! Fingers crossed.
LMH - going back a bit - yes, I'm taking iron supplements. I think it's just the stress of the last few weeks catching up with me.
Great HM report Emzap, and great time - congratulations!
Congrats to Mrs RFJ too on the 10k.
Hope everyone is well - healing wishes to all with injuries/niggles/knocks.
Why: Need to keep going
Last hard: Sunday's 14, which should have been 20
Last rest: Wednesday I think
Was supposed to be going to the cinema tonight, but having to swap it for a night in as I have post-work gift shopping to do, and a run to squeeze in. Fortunately G is extremely understanding, and never complains when I seem so rushed all the time... have booked Friday off for some breathing space though, so the weekend should be quite relaxed even with a million things squeezed in!
Have a nice evening everyone.
I did post earlier after Alehouse don' know what happened
ok Action, take two....
Alehouse sounds positive, hope the light continues to shine brightly as you reach the end of the tunnel

Des - send us some sunshine!
Hope you get your own run in tonight Wabo.
alehouse;Sounds like positive news
Paddy/DesRes: I'm a morning person which helps me get my runs in early.
LMH - Nothing at the mo. Just gave myself a good talking to at the weekend running is free (well almost) so it shouldn't effect anything told myself to get out for least an hour each day whilst i'm not at work See how i feel after Thursday even if i don't run all the way.Was rather a nice one today.
I do these run walks when i plan to up my mileage quickly but safely and most importantly to keep it fun
Des Its a long way i could joke saying its a long way to Tipperary but it will be when you're down there sorry i'll get my coat
Alehouse, good and positive news
