How did everyone get on on Sunday? I did 2:07:20 which was ahead of my expectations for a first attempt at age 42 from never having run before I started training. The hill at the end was a killer - could have done with being at the beginning! What a wonderful event, I came home on such a high afterwards. Will definitely do it again.

I ran 1:52:31. That was 4 minutes faster than last year - I didn't think I was in that kind of shape having not done the right level of training - in hindsight I could've gone under 1:50, but I'm never satisfied whatever time I run!

Trapped or damaged a nerve at the base of my spine, probably sacroiliac, a week ago trail running along cliff paths in Devon.

Off to see the chiro tomorrow I wonder how long he's going to tell me to lay off the running & cycling.

That's a blow to your training Jon. I hope it's not too serious and you are up and running (pardon the pun) again very soon.
I went to see a specialist yesterday about my knee and my cartilage has worn down to the point that I'm going to need another operation asap.

Just back from chiro, new one, turns out she's a fox as well as a triathlete.
No nerve damage but have rotated hip backwards from running on uneven surfaces, muscles spasmed but she's managed to relieve them ooohh errrr.  No impcat training for a week, I can swim & cycle, no running.  Back to see her next Wednesday for 1 more treatment.

Human bodies are amazing things, the connections between a glute muscle & the upper vertabrae in the neck, how does that work?

That's pretty good news Jon, things aren't as bad as you first thought. Nothing wrong with having a week or so off the running if you are still swimming and cycling. At least you will keep up the cardio vascular training.

Yet another setback.  Fell off my bike on Saturday at 30 odd miles an hour on a descent, luckily I was past the fastest section.
Bashed myself up, all superficial, nothing broken, lost a lot of skin but luckily in winter clothes so arms & legs covered in lycra & the bike survived intact, luckily it went down on the non drive side, pedal took the brunt of the fall along with my left knee.

Back on the bike today, painful but need to keep moving, tried to run, not a chance.

Jogging outside makes you stupid, it's official & according to the Daily Heil you'll probably be mugged by an immigrant to boot.

Running Warwick Castle HM on March 17th as a warm up for London marathon on April 21.  Training was going well until picked up a virus a couple of weeks ago - still making my body lethargic now , especially on the longer runs - as soon as I get past 100 mins on the road the aches are worse than Ive ever known.

I was reading an article by Dave Scott, probably the greatest triathlete of all time recently where he said that 4 weeks before an event he avoided all physical contact with people, no handshaking, kissing, shagging, just to avoid picking up a virus before an event and wasting the weeks of training that went before, a bit extreme!

That is a nice tidy time Jon, well done.

I've got an MRI scan this week and a specialist visit next so, so I'm getting close to getting a date to get my knee fixed so I can start running again :).

Had an MRI and ultrasound on my ankle last month.Got told to rest for a bit then have a cortisone stab if it doesn't go away by itself. I can run but stiffen up like mad overnight to the point where I hobble for an hour or so until the painkillers kick in. Really annoying.

Did anyone do Reading yesterday?

My missus did and she said that she ran past a house with a gazebo outside and a Villa flag flying. She shouted "up the Villa" to them ( the daft old Arsenal mare) and got a cheer.

She can hardly walk today
