JAR, it had crossed my mind just how they might reattach things, despite its gruesomeness it sounds quite incredible and possibly an even more resilient fixture than mother nature invented with ordinary ligaments. I am so glad that there is an excellent chance of recovery.
Thanks for the kind words on my scribing.
Some do-gooder re-arranged my physio appointment to my local GP surgery, highly suspicious I have just rung them up and interrogated them, sure enough it would have been with, probably a very good physio, but not the high level person my GP asked for, so I have had it rearranged again, which will be in another town, there not being any mega physios local to me; the downside is it keeps slipping further and further away from me in date, currently Aug 23rd having originally been 17th, but I am going to make sure they do this right.
Love the idea of an invalids limpy launch from Pen.C (we will have to take the charity boost to get in there no doubt, although Terry has a ticket to Pen.E doesn't he? He will no doubt haul us in before the first corner though!) It would be great to collapse in to the finish area all 3 of us hand in hand having run in our own bus all the way.
Forward the Foundation! Positive vibes to all!
Max, if they try any shLt of any kind I won't be forced down a road I don't want to take. I hear goat is great roasted. I would still have come to Durbs, but very likely I would have been cheering you over the line from the international enclosure having driven up to PM extremely early in the morning.
Mac, hoping to wax lyrical about reaching the stadium in daylight
People may have seen this before, I just re-stumbled over it, a TEDxTalk that has nothing to do with the title, but is quite entertaining and revealing; has some references to Comrades. Also sadly illustrates how some people paid the ultimate price due to misinformation, shocking.
Dannirr, my only knowledge on Noaksey until you said that was Lore of Running and the vid I linked to. Doing a bit more research I can see he has fallen fowl of engaging in tweets and becoming anti-sound bitten by what must be hoards of disgruntled water peddlers and now fat peddlers. I'm pretty sure his reflections on water hold true in that talk though, as for his views on fat... I really like a Full English, so I've got my fingers crossed
He remains a professor and he ain't been kicked out of his job. If anyone fancies a good further read, what looks like an impartial journalist wrote this and what looks like a friend of his wrote this about the not guilty verdict.
I'm just presenting info but I have to say I personally think the verdict was technically correct; it wasn't about fat being good or bad though, it was about tweets not being the basis of a professional relationship between the warring proponents and therefore not ground that can legally be held up as such. If you tweet though, you deserve all you get!
There is a low carb/high fat thread on here somewhere, I stumbled over it a few months back, wasn't particularly looking for it, and I fell off my chair laughing; the last comment on it when I arrived was; "Are any of you silly buggers still alive in here..." It was awaiting a reply
All the controversy is presented in that epic article I linked to; he appears to have lost rigour and prefers twitter battles to publishing peer reviewed research these days.
I think a lot of the problem with these diet things is, when you set out doing anything you are full of gusto for it and will undoubtedly "be good" and lose some weight. So they all work...
