Sub post... daughter did it in 1:46.46 - fantastic effort over £500 for cancer research ... she did it for her mom (who has it)

What a superb effort, well done to her.

And Eric WW's sister, in fact everybody who ran. A lot of charities will be able to carry on supporting people for longer because of the run, which is the best reason for having it.

It sounds as though if you were in the left lane of at least some of the waves there may well be a 2 minute-ish discrepancy with your official time so if you were timing yourself your watch will be the reliable one!

They have now acknowledged that there was a synchronisation error and you can ask for your time to be corrected if you think you were affected. I have had my time put up by 1.57 as I would have felt I was cheating otherwise.

Suggested stretches for upper hamstrings?  I've never had a problem with it previously so probably neglected stretching this area but it has gone tight in two of the last - say - 4 runs, over a period of about 3 weeks.

Advice appreciated.

Have you got a trigger point roller?  If not, get one and get a good one like one made by Trigger Point themselves and get instructions as well, too easy to do damage to yourself with one, best £40 I spent in the last few years.

Has anyone done the Stafford Half Marathon? I've just entered and I wondered what the course is like.

You can use a golf ball or equivalent for trigger points. Personally I like a Rumble Roller which is like a foam roller but with bits sticking out that you roll over to get trigger points. It's been very useful when I've had a stiff back or having strained my back.

Ran 8km Wednesday afternoon in my second week of trying to run 2 days each week. Knee feels good. 

I'll aim for 8 - 10 km tomorrow morning.

Finally able this morning to get back on the course that the local high schools use for cross country events. Ran 10km in 63 mins - glad that I could manage the distance. Now time to work on sub-50 8kms and sub-60 10kms.

After seeing doctors and physics since March, MRI scan has revealed a scar so am now waiting for an assessment (probably four weeks minimum) before anything can be done. In the meantime I'm still lurching around like a buffoon.
Take care with your knees out there folks.

Sorry to hear that - have you read Bullet Proof Knees?  It's on this thread somewhere (I think JC posted the DropBox link). Hopefully it will be of some use.

I have - you sent me a copy and it has helped to a degree.

Sounds like the new route will take you through a number of the local villages - which are all very pretty. A couple of sharp hills - in doxey and then as you go toward stafford castle on the A518 - but apart from that , fairly flat.
