Love this picture - my support team snapped it - I'm completing the tradition although I didn't run the miles; heel went in the Irish Sea at the start (almost along with the rest of me as I slipped on green algae - ha ha), toe goes in the North Sea on this side.
Well done Debra - we need pictures of bling!!!
Bike IT - great to hear you are back on the road - here we go! I would gladly contribute to a struggling local runner entry scheme as part of my international entry.
RR - are you there yet? Pictures please!
Thanks for the positive comments everyone - in a bravado of self diagnosis I am declaring I have dead glute syndrome - a leg is a heavy burden to lift if the other muscles are asked to continually do that over 12 hours of ultra running. The symptoms seem consistent with that; a gradual degradation in my ability to lift the left leg, consistently foot strike, leading to the toe nose diving, the calf going into spasm, the soleus curling up like newspaper burning, other upper leg and butt muscles crying for me to stop and ultimately the mile rate dropping to zero with those symptoms even being present whilst trying to power walk... so I am going to look for one of Kim Kardashian's workouts in a typical 1owrez attempt to overcompensate - sorry if I consequently break the Internet!
RR: good luck!
lowrez, Southern Snail, what are they asking about? I hate going into a survey not knowing what the questions are going to be about, how many questions (one screen? Three? ten?)/ how long it's likely to take.
lowrez, I will try to take and post pics of the bling at lunchtime.
Yep, all they want to know is how many tankards you want to buy
Darn it SS? See a professional?
Any news on RR?
This "new" bulletin board is sh*te isn't it? I even went over to Vanilla the other day to tell them how bad: https://vanillaforums.com/en/software/ this is in stark contrast to other implementations that are fantastic: https://vanillaforums.com/en/showcase/ whoever did runner's world wants their arse spanking. They don't care how bad it is either, there don't appear to be any admins and no one policing this anymore. They've just chucked it in and thrown away the key and left us to struggle with it - SHAME ON YOU HEARST MAGAZINES UK
I'm not certain how I did that Debra, I saved it locally here and it was the wrong way around, so I rotated it, and it seemed pretty broad, so I cropped it, when I tried to re-load it, the system went through the motions of doing it, even to the point of showing a line across the page as if it was nearly there, and then it would sort of "sigh" like it was all too much effort and give up and nothing was there. I then re-saved the picture as png assuming there was something wrong with the jpg, same symptoms though, I logged off and back on, always a good IT technique, but it did the same, finally, before loading the image I added a blank line to the post and then added the image and it loaded, the right way around, I then deleted the blank line and hit post. It never twisted it back, simply loaded the right way around for me.
I think I might have spotted a rodent!!!!! What an amazing athlete! Well done RR!
