Went to the Dubai marathon expo yesterday morning, lots of tourists there. Was held at the Jumeirah Beach hotel beside the Burj al Arab. A slight disappointment picking up a 10k pack but hey I've done the marathon before.
Cal - I've been running since 1988 and have been pretty lucky that Ive never lost much time to injuries, apart from breaking my leg in 1998 and that was whilst running!
I did try speed walking then with my leg in plaster!
Congrats on the ton David!
I'm still having a few issues with my right hip but getting there. Was meant to run the Dubai marathon on Friday but after hip pain over the weekend I've dropped to the 10k. Not too bothered, done it before and was going …
Good morning, great running going on everyone!
I took 4 days off with tightness in my hips, hamstrings and back. Been swimming and stretching (which I normally don't do). Had a massage, not sure if it made any difference.
Anyway went out a couple …
I'm with you Cal, tight hamstrings pulling on my lower back. Spending an afternoon in a cheap plastic seat watching Australia v Palestine in the Asia cup hasn't helped!
Will see tomorrow but massage booked for Sunday after swim set.
Harmander, I doubt I'll give you a challenge this year, I'm sure you'll end up several hundred miles ahead, again!

Nice swim session today and th…
I'm back in for 2019, don't think I can match Harmander though.

Sad news Harmander.
Great miles everyone, after a Chinese and beers night I woke at 0725 this morning, checked the weather, a pleasant 22 degrees so decided to finish the year with a half marathon.
YTD and 2018 total 1822.9 miles
Boxing day swim sounds cold brr
YTD 1804.1 miles
And now for another day of brunching, big expat thing to do, eat and more specifically drink as much as you can on a Friday afternoon before a cocktail after party,…
Welcome back Nell!
I'm off for Christmas this year, and it's harder to get out running, too much socialising and enjoying the good life.
Was as at a party last night but managed to get out this morning. Only 5.43 miles and not the double figure ru…
Well done AOH!
1740 miles for me with 278 to go, not going to happen but hey got the kilometers done and there's always 2019....
