Ian another alternative is Boston (UK) it's flatter than Manchester although seen they have changed the course but in case Manchester isn't kind with the weather could fallback on Boston as its usually a week or two later.
MF any luck with the PF?
Shades glad the new shoes work well
Steve do you find alternating bike and run helps on impact? am considering a bit of cycling especially warmer weather?
BIg G best rest rather than risk running.
Cal would it be worth considering a bit of trail running? it would still have less impact on joints and helps strengthen?
I'm still self medicated/diagnosed off running for at least another week maybe two. Am quite happy just doing classes for the short time as its good core training which mine is quite weak.
Exciting news!!!! I've been selected by the lovely peeps at Centurion, to be a pacer at London Landmarks Half marathon on March 24th. I've been selected as a 2hr 15 pace group.
Steven good luck at the docs.
Cal, how far is Fulham (Thames Path) I know it gets a bit muddy there too but could also be a bit less relentless on the joints, well done on the 16 miles.
Big G bit of a dilemma for Torbay Tri and the leisure centre, if people are using it as a way to get discounted leisure centre access and if it's a problem I can only see an increase in costs or restricted access as the only viable option. That may then have an impact on the Tri club membership however if people were only doing it and not using the club for training it would have only inflated figures. Fingers crossed they don't cotton on and they keep the offer open.
Steve, imagine the advantages are the same for Tri athletes can keep up the volume for fitness purposes.
Had a short kettlebell class yesterday then my spin was cancelled just done 15 mins on the x trainer. Defo considering another week off running as bit of discomfort last night but feeling the improvement.
Big G good luck with the physio, I'm in the same boat as being able to walk pain free but when I run pain in the foot, very frustrating and I'm playing the waiting game patiently but have no races planned other than the pacing half and DD.
Steven, glad no lasting damage on the knee, just takes time I'm assuming?
Ian, IMO Making Manchester your A race seems most sensible, hope you got back okay and not on the injured bench for more and a day or so.
Shades it was a while since I did anything other than some core work or run, I used to enjoy the classes but got out of the habit. Glad you're feeling better. Also I think I said my Cambridge Boundary Run was on the 1st of March? It's on the 10th... Unsure if I'll run, will either use it as the 1st half pacing 2.15 for the half or just drop to the half.
Steve minus 5 geez, as long as it's not icy it's okay and can wrap up. Prefer freezing to rain!
Rest day today, foot feeling okay but still twinges of tightness, have gym and spin tonight.
