Shades, I've not tried taping the foot yet, I've got these bands on which offer a form of support, may pop into decathalon and pick some up, unfortunately missed out on aldi that had some in the other week. Haha at the basketball, is core work a punishment for not behaving? ps hope it wasn't you causing mischief!!!
Big G PF is a killer NHS and pretty much anyone says rest, reduce walking, which doesn't help with staying active. Over the last few weeks after spin/ gym classes my foot hasn't been as bad so must be improving however just afraid of undoing all the healing by running too early. Sounds like a nice walk, hopefully the pain free walk gives you more hope to be able to complete Friday!
Interesting stuff from Centurion running, they have announced they have 3 new races, Currently have 4x100miles and 4x50. They have the scope to expand as all their events sell out well in advance. Rumours include Wendover Woods 100 10x10mile loops with a total elevation of 20,000ft (this one is pretty much happening) others include possible 24 hour race/ last man standing, on a track. looped circuit.
Cal you're a few days away from the half and you've already said how you're not using it for a PB so prob wont do any harm. In regards to PF I now feel guilty towards anyone I never felt sympathy for who suffered. I really hope I'm starting to come out the other end just need to be patient.
Popped into Decathlon picked up some kinesiology tape and another massage ball to roll about under my desk.
Also found out that I didn't get in London 100 which I'm not too concerned about but hopefully they'll take that into consideration for next years VLM ballot ---- doubt it very much
Big G, Like the medal, I like to make trips more about just the running, means if the race doesn't go to plan it hasn't been a complete waste. (used to do it when I went to Chelsea away games).
Shades, new socks defo put a spring in your step. yes Ride 100 is the same people as London Marathon, I thought it would be easy to get in but one of my pals has been rejected 5 times! Hope Pilates were a bit more calmer than walking basketball!!!
Ian well done for getting a run in after a few beers the day before.
I've never had any negative feedback from Strava, I do like the idea of Kudos and the extrinsic motivation it provides but then I get as many kudo's for a 4 mile even run as I do PB big at a race.
Had a play taping the foot up yesterday at work, seemed to be okay, also decided to have a jog back from the station. I don't think it was just the tape as my foot was feeling better but no pai
Ian well done on the MT podium, I managed to get on it last year with a 4hr 24 marathon! It was a quiet weekend!!!
Steve they have also announced a 100mile track event, with 17 hour cut off and only 30 runners. I'm yet to experience a lap of WW but have the 50 mile in November, I don't foresee me considering the 100 miler version if it appeared in the calendar again. I'm awaiting their 3rd race and hoping it's a bit more accessible.
I take it you skipped the KFC today as you want to shed those couple of pounds you've put on.
