  • Buttercup I will  need a race report, to encourage my brain and body to train for something a bit different and maybe finally do a long trip on the bucket list.
  • I am very slowly getting better, had 2 MRI scans so far, ruled out slipped disc but they think it is the SI joint that has problems with a pinched nerve. Finally seeing the physio who has allowed me back to swimming along with exercises to do.
  • I have deferred my place on the 10k until next year. Been to the GP and I am now awaiting an MRI, but that may be some weeks away. The painkillers and ice packs are working, so hopefully I will be returning to normal soon, each time I think I am get…
  • Bad news Gobi, heal well soon. Mikasa, glad you enjoyed the tri. I have not been on my bike outdoors yet this year. I am getting over a bad back. Compressed nerves, sciatic and femoral, mornings are painful then gets better with movement and means…
  • Well done Gobi, shame the hamstring let you down. I have only ever looked at the bottom of a results list. I get cramp in the sole of my feet quite often, never really worked out why.
  • Hello everyone. I survived the Larmer 10. Very enjoyable in a weird way that only runners understand. Hilly and very muddy, walked all but 200m. 3 and a half hours in the company of the tail sweeper and some others. Very friendly organisers and team…
  • Just popping in to see if anything is going on. I have gone down with a cold which quickly went to chesty cough, so taking things really easy and doing nothing in the way of exercise. Might start wibbling about Larmer 10 as that is next month, but …
  • swashbuckler has tidal water to contend with, but apart from that I have heard positive things about it. Can you escape up to Surrey for a bike ride with Dustboy, he wants to see you again. Not entered anything at present, might do a few sportive…
  • Cake, I may go for a walk in the Surrey Hills, that way I will be prepared for anything. My turbo is a basic Tacx model, has not been used this winter because I found a great spin class to go to. Today I did a little walk and then a taster session…
  • Don't feel old Gobi, I have had to stop running this year after 34 years. I didn't join RW until late 2010. I am now setting WPB's - walking personal bests.
  • Hello Gobi, I remember your name from when I first started on here many years ago. Forward motion in any sport is a success nowadays. Cake that marathon sounds a bit hilly, will have to see how I do at Larmer before committing to any other walks. B…
  • My walking marathon time is around 7 hours, so faster than a long ago run marathon of 5 and a half hours. Still getting my head around it but hoping to still do some events with generous cut offs.
  • Hi all, Happy New year.  I did Parkrun on New years day as my first walk event, well to tell the truth I did 100m jog at the start and finish but walked the rest and only 3 minutes slower than the walk/run I did at the end of October. Due to my ret…
  • Cake, you are still only a 2 and a half to 3 hour drive away, just this time I go south to visit not north. I need to look up races for next year and enter something, but I don't feel like doing the same old races again. Might look at doing a few …
  • Hello Cake.  I am doing Larmer 10. Nothing else planned as yet. Are you up for a bike ride with Dustboy in the warmer weather next year, you can come out in the gentle Surrey Hills and a pleasant café stop afterwards.
  • As much as you can without getting injured. If that close to the cut off get some consistent short sessions in now and find a training plan and do it, working on weaknesses. I finished Outlaw Half with 15 minutes before the cut off and know that I …
  • Mathschick, they have built houses twice in the marina now, I agree it is a retail place now, never even see the boats. I run/walked again today. 3 min run 2 min walk for 2.5 miles. A long way to go to get to 10 miles but all progress and the run b…
  • one bike race cap please
  • Well Parkrunned Supercaz and boo hiss to not getting a swim, I understand the frustrations of fitting in the getting fit with family in tow and I only have a husband and one pair of oldies to deal with. I did a spin session on Saturday and walked H…
  • Mrs Yurtle and Cal Jones, yes TFL can be overloaded and give those symptoms. Rest and get sorted. I have seen an osteopath and sports massage person to get sorted out. Osteo was for sorting out lower back/pelvis issues. Muscle imbalance is my proble…
  • I did a Parkrun for the first time this year. Managed 1km of run before getting caught by the run/walk leader so did one minute run and walk to finish the course. There is going to be a new one near me soon probably won't start until the new year, b…
  • Look after yourself Buttercup. I had one good week of exercise, then this week nothing due to a stomach bug and feeling wiped out. I intend on doing at least one sportive next year and if possible a little mtb ride.
  • Hello Super Caz and welcome back Silver Trucker. I am still plodding on, doing a bit of everything. I have signed up with a gym until Xmas and doing 2 classes a week to help with the cycling as I know I won't go out when the weather is bad and I do…
  • Mikasa, I like a 2:1 run walk ratio, but whatever suits you will do. I have started looking at a few events for next year. That means I need to get training and also find out if the events will let me use walking poles as that seems to take the stra…
  • Mikasa I broke my arm a few years ago but Mallowpuff is the one with the current injury.
  • Hope that Pete in the Hills that used to post on here is Ok, he is out in the Houston Texas area.
  • Aww Mallowpuff, I know that feeling well after breaking my wrist in 4 places and not being able to do much. You will get back no problem, just start planning all those mad events you want to enter for next year.
  • Hi Skin and Bones and Greeny45, welcome, its a bit quiet in here with holidays and stuff. Mikasa, I know you will enjoy the tri, I would have entered it but have a celebration event that day so logistically could not be in 2 places at once. I have…
  • Well done Brewy, Glad to hear you are feeling better lollipop I did my Sprint tri last week and was very slow, followed up this Sunday by doing the Hogsmill 5 a women only 5 mile mainly off road race. I was last, so last I had the company of the b…
  • I managed to do a little brick on Sunday morning. 6 miles on the race bike and 2 miles run with a tiny bit of walking. Then went out with friends for a walk and Sunday lunch in the pub. The legs survived so feeling more optimistic for the weekend. …
