Well the leg does seem to be improving. It is hurting in different ways now, which I will take as a small positive.
Needless to say, I’m still doing my stair-shuffle, much to the amusement of colleagues as I slowly ascend stairs. It will be nice to have all legs back present and correct. In the meantime, I just have to savour each stair as I reach it with both feet!
Of course, Wilmslow is out for this weekend. Even though most of the pain seems to be out of the way now, I’m conscious that I was in a similar position before the last race, and we know how that ended. So instead I’m going to visit and event called runexpo over the weekend – it would appear to be some form of exhibition by a large variety of sports firms covering running, biking, swimming and a combination of the above. Unless Triexpo is something about ‘giving it a go’……
I wouldn’t normally attend such an event, but given I got a free ticket from entering the Anglesey race, it would be rude not to have a lot around and see what I can learn.
In the meantime I’ve reverted to type and created another list. This time it’s the race results from all the races I’ve competed in. Which isn’t actually that many although it does stretch back to 2006 (admittedly there’s about a 4 year gap in there somewhere). I’m pleased to have found most of the races I remember as well with only two exceptions; one where the results seem to be nowhere on the internet (Accrington 10k 2006) and one where I ended up running in another person’s place (Manchester 10k 2008), but I’m not 100% sure what they were called so had to go with a name that sounded vaguely familiar.
Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things.
