that's sensational stuff CD. No idea why, but i did expect it! maybe becuase you are so good/consistent...
RJR hope you can get on top of the stomach issues in the next few long runs, don't want them scuppering your chances, but sounds like you have sub 3 well within your grasps.
Family weekend away, so i didn't run Fri/Sat/Sun, thought that might help sort out my glute pain. NOPE... the 2.5 hour drive back istelf had me feeling the same pain as driving too/from Abingon. I guess its all linked to my nerve issues in lower back so not sure i can do much, but am even considering a trip back to the physio. Did a treadmill 12km today, including 2 x 3km at about 5km pace with plenty of other jogging, but it just felt sore/hard the whole time even when just jogging.
TR yeah thanks for pointing out my lack of ability to add, you are right the P&D 18 weeker starts a week earlier than i had it. I wont be doing that as off skiing for Xmas so the aim is to try for the 70-85 one but cut it a week short.
Nice report CD, brings back memories for me. 4th in age group in an iconic race like that is awesome asa well and puts it more in perspective how good a run it was. Its a natural positive split course that one too so held it together well including a walk!
LMH - most likely yes something like that, and maybe related to a disc bulge in lower back as well. Has been sore from before Abingdon right through to now, just feels like sore hamstrings and sore glutes, and sometimes a stabbing pain when running, just never comfortable. Rest doesnt seem to have made any difference either. Driving a car for more than 45 minutes becomes really painful! It's really holding me back now i think so i guess best to try something (i.e. thoughts of trip to physio), but some googling on priformis treatments first might be a plan.
