  • Ok, looks like it's going to be a hot one. Now getting a bit nervous extra heat will burn more calories, so should I slow the pace or take on more carbs & water? Advice please
  • Did 12 miles today @ mp. went well I just hope it's not too hot next week  Oompa - Pysio's are like magicians, I'm sure you will get it sorted ready for next week. Some great running hasn't it gone quick.... Now I'm starting to panic, what time s…

  • Got my race magazine etc today. Whats with the red laces? Since my injury I've been feeling a bit down, apprehensive in case any other injuries develop. However the intervals and the 10 miles tonight have gone really well. Woohoo Feel like I have …
  • Lamkjo - Injury free and on for Sub 3:30 as Oompa says. Keep it up  Leslie - Sounds like a great night! reminds me of a couple of weeks ago when I went out on stag do the night before my LSR. And yes the LSR was my worst ever. But 17 miles after t…
  • Oompa - They're the ones I'm using as well. Woud definately recommend. The rasberry flavour taste great, just like the jam you get in the middle of a doughnut  Just got back from my 20 Miles and it went really well  Pysio has definately helped. Too…
  • Oompa - sounds like things are going well. Let's all hope the injuries are kept at bay... Saw the pysio on Thursday night after my problem last Sunday. He worked his magic and suggested I had trapped a nerve. A bit of manipulation, followed by a …

  • Great run tonight and legs feel fine. A friend has suggested a homoepathic remedy for my sore muscles, 100c Arnica 1 per day. been taking for the last couple of days. It might all be in the mind or coincidence but they do feel much better Massage t…
  • Hi cragchick and welcome I had a weird niggle tonight, set off for a slow 9 miles. A bit stiff from yesterday but taking it nice and slow, when about 2 miles in had a really strange sensation in my right leg on the outside of my knee. Not painful b…

  • Crikey some good times for the 20 miles on Sunday being posted. Makes my steady 3:06 seem very sedate   Quads are really sore today just got back from a slow 4 miles and the outer muscles are rock solid and sore. Time to book a massage before an …
  • Well the mornings are getting lighter and the evenings are brighter, spring is deffinately on the way. Weather forecast in the SE looks good for Sunday so looking forward to 20 miles
  • Some FANTASTIC ! running going on. Missed the running for a week but enjoyed the skiing. 1st run tonight felt great. I think the break has done some good. Need to get some miles in to burn off all the French cheese and red wine
  • Suffered a bit of chaffing on tonights 10 miler. Can anyone suggest comfy undies? I'm sure it's down to personal prefference but if there are any available that come highly recommended they have got to be worth a try.
  • Well done to anyone who did the hill sessions today out there in that truley orrible weather!!  It was horrible out there, but 12x2mins flew by Nice 10k Jaffa you must be well pleased. Looking forward to the 20 miler this week then off for a week…
  • I don't like hills !!!  Actually Im really pleased how well the session went, just need to knuckle down and get on with it. I think I chose a hill that could have been less steep.  Funny, the 9 mile session last night is the same distance as my LS…
  • Bambi35 wrote (see) Has had anyone had any achilles problems and got any tips on the best thing to do? Mine has been sore for a week, but is now worse following my LSR. It is a little inflamed. I rested and took ibuprofen yesterday. Not sure whethe…

  • Will have to look up Yasso's Intervals on Tues went well. 4x1mile with 3 min jog between Just finished 7 miles @ 9:00 my legs felt like lead weights all the way round. I'm sure they will be fine tomorrow though
  • Sounds like a good plan Dave. Are there any experts on nutrition out there? I eat a fairly healthy diet (everything in moderation) But with the mileage increasing on the longer runs how much should you increase your carb intake? Currently eating …
