  • Apologies for radio silence. Too much going on on all fronts to explain but, personally, have ended up here (see pic). I’m back home now for the start of a long recovery period. It seems my left ankle has trumped my right ankle in terms of severity …

  • Happy birthday, Poacher!

  • Delighted for you.  Make sure you do your homework now!
  • Hopefully the physio will look to see what is inhibiting the problem too e.g. the calf or peroneal.  It's just your body telling you something is up somewhere (not there) so you have to work it out!
  • Without really wanting to diagnose, I thought I would post as I didn't want to leave your question wafting in the wind without an answer.  I have dealt with posterior tibial tendon issues and this article, to me, is a fairly comprehensive summary of…
  • Best of luck those running in London tomorrow. This may help you with some pre-planning so you can have a few options depending on how hot it is.  Can't wait to read  your reports. Play it safe above all. https://runnersconnect.net/training/tools/te…

  • GerardM said: Did anyone watch Boston today? Oh my word, it was biblical rain, they were building arks out there it was so bad. I've never seen an elite race where they ran in their jackets and masks etc. I was watching from about 5k and had a…

  • Brilliant result and well deserved, SBD! Eat all the food and drink all the beer now.

  • This is a beautiful film on it that you may have seen already?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F7T1EGSoMQ Also take a look at books by writers such as William Pullen who is a psychotherapist who uses running as a setting for therapy: https://www.…
  • Just popping in to wish SBD good luck at Brighton on Sunday.  I am sulking as I am still not right and have a referral to see a consultant about my Other Ankle.  I haven't run in several weeks and am desperately clinging onto fitness by spinning and…

  • Gosh, I must be tired. I am repeating myself congratulating BB. MrE went off for a ski week and I have had a rather tiring day. On to another week tomorrow, folks. Wishing you all a fruitful and injury-free week of running.  Go get 'em!

  • Great to see such speedy times from the Surrey Half racers.  Onwards and upwards for the full monty.  Delighted to see a nearly PB for Lorenzo.  Excellent MP pacing from SBD.  And couldn't be happier for GD (did you hang fire till mile 8 and then dr…

  • Awesome effort, BB.  Eat all the food now.  Briefly dropping in to with GD and Lorenzo best of luck in their target time attempts tomorrow.  And that SBD has a successful MP run. Sorry I am not with you at the Surrey HM after all. Battling a niggly …

  • Sorry been AWOL.  Niggle in left foot I've been trying to shift.  So have amended race list.  Quick read back shows excellent running at the Nationals XC and great efforts despite the Beast From The East.  More of the same everyone! Sunday 04 March…

  • OO, Lorenzo and Gerard - gutted to say I can't make it this Saturday afternoon.  Family duties intervening.  Sometimes having 4 kids makes weekends very tricky indeed.  Wishing you the best of races and much FUN! Its the nationals after all.

  • The Fetch predictor is interesting but I wonder if it errs towards a more "typical male" conversion rate and so comes across as more conservative?  McMillan is quite accurate for me. On the topic of 20 milers, I haven't included any in my marathon …

  • GerardM I’m not running at nationals but will be heading up to Parliament Hill to cheer on my team plus any thread members wanting a boost!

  • @DadAgainThank you for that beautiful detailed description of The GC Marathon. You've definitely sold it to me. Nice weekly mileage from Gul and OO (good stuff getting the 20 in!) And a very pleasing number from Birch (how's the hamstring liking it…

  • I’ve decided my ability to bounce back from adversity is below par having seen this.

  • Good grief, BB.  Thank goodness you came away from that incident with cracked ribs and nothing else.  Glad you can get back to running as I know how much it means to you.  Your 107 miler sounds incomprehensible to me though! GD - good week for you …

  • And actually very pertinent to runners with goals. Thanks for the ideas, @GerardM I shall try incorporate.  Always good to have external input  Good to see you both coming back slowly but surely, DT and RunningGas.  Fingers crossed for your come…

  • Yikes. I have two boxes from quotes but no quotes?  I feel under pressure to provide one. How about this... "The impediment to action becomes the action. What stands in the way becomes the way." from Marcus Aurelius, one of the greatest stoics of al…

  • Let’s get a race list going folks. Add your entries and goals if you’re prepared to share them. Don’t let this be all about me.  It’s very useful to have an online cheering squad. I’m hoping I’ve not jinxed myself by doing this.  Me and DNS are clos…

  • Sounding very sensible, DT.  I can see you are definitely not one of the ones I need to keep an eye on in here  Excellent start to the week, Gul. Birch - It is ridiculous and all part of the big con that is cashing in on the running boom.  I t…

  • So you don't recommend it then, Lorenzo? In all seriousness, an excellent effort from you. Sorry to hear it was such a shambles of a race.  I am increasingly inclined to avoid overpriced amateurish races to put an end to the explosion of "races" wh…

  • GerardM and @"Gul Darr".  Both looking quite pacey - get thee into a race forthwith! Sorry not to join you on your LR today, Lorenzo.  I am not quite up to 20m yet but will be in touch when the hounds and I can join you again. DT19 it sounds like …

  • Birch said: Brilliant, Gerard, on a dodgy course - do you have a 100% tarmac course locally ?      Backed up the midweek 15.5 with a couple of 4's on Thu, Fri, then 12 this morning with my friend, and my daughter, who is now relocated back here…

  • @MrSoft - Re swapping weeks/scheduled races in the plan, I would just check the way the week is set out.  A race may be in a slightly lower volume week to allow a mini-taper.  After all, racing is a hard effort for the body.  On the same note, it al…
