One week to Langdale Mountain marathon and a visit to my Chiropractor

Above photo of the 1 in 3 climb in the Great Langdale Marathon, it has to be climbed at mile 2 and 14 !
Months and months of hard training, Weekend after weekend running in the hills, tempo runs, Progression sessions and sprints. Plus some seriously hard drinking!
Here I am, ready for my next challenge, The Hardest Road Marathon in Britain!
Just LOOK at that figgin photo!!!
went to my chiopractor Scott Fullwood on Thur, the good news was I was able to walk out of his surgery feeling much improved with most of the sciatic pains gone!
Yes I chucked the Zimmer frame away, a miracle to be held!!!
Without his treatment over the years I doubt I'd still be running now.
If you live in the southport area and are looking for a good Chiropractor i would recommend you try Scott. Phone 01704 569695
I did a session of 20 x 400m.
Ever counted more than ten! what do you do once you run out of fingers?
Answer start counting on your toes! [ I think that's where barefoot running started from :]
I felt a bit sluggish at first but soon got stronger, finishing with a last effort at 5.12 pace.
1/ 5.41 pace 2/ 5.32 pace 3/ 5.40 4/ 5.35 5/ 5.37 6/ 5.20 7/ 5.42 8/ 5.21 9/ 5.26 10/ 5.36
11/ 5.36 12/ 5.18 13/ 5.36 14/ 5.20 15/ 5.34 16/ 5.35 17/ 5.36 18/ 5.22 19/ 5.40 20/ 5.12
Ran the session on the roads and at times had to fight a strong head wind, but I felt really 'powerful' and at one point past another runner like he was going backwards. Yeah I like that feeling, lets bottle it and sell it on the internet :].
total time 1 hour 5 mins
Ran with Paul [who will be running the Langdale 1/2] around Parbold and ashurst with 3 big climbs.
Really powered up the Parbold climb hitting 10 MPH near the top!
Max speed 14.8 MPH Downhill!
Total time = 1 hour 32 mins

Looking back down the Monster 1 in 3 climb!

Those MB schedules look tough Rick!! Glad you're up for them.

Also glad you're better and you're wrong "The end of the World" is just over the hill from Ewen's place ;)

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a fantastic job with this.
Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
Outstanding Blog!
