Don't worry boys you will be getting your blue passports back soon!  Wink

The cycling sportive I did in Belgium the other week was in KM's and frankly confused the bollocks out of me although i suppose 153km sounds better than 95 miles!  Hmmm

I went for my first run on Tuesday. When do my calves stop hurting? I'm keen to go again.
Make sure you do a proper warm-up/cool down, and include some heel drops in among the stretches.

Just got back from 2 hours at the gym after a (forced) break of a few days and for once I don't feel as though my body's about to snap.

WTF is a heel drop? Warm ups and cool downs have helped my recovery time greatly.

Calf stretch, presumably.

Ish, more aimed at the achilles but does help calf muscles too. But you should also do standard calf stretches, esp in cooldown

I'll have to give those a go, might help my Achilles tendinopathy.

Yeah, really helped me. I did 3 sets of 10-15 daily until it eased, then just incorporate a few on each leg in standard warm up. Touch wood, been OK since

Lying in bed as my ankles no longer work. 

Managed to complete the London Marathon yesterday in 4 hours 54 minutes which I think is ok for a 45 year old who didn't start running until 4 years ago and 5 years ago was 18 and a half stone.

Currently raised 3700 (4500 roughly including gift aid) for teenage cancer trust.  Thanks to those of you who donated.  Hopefully this will go up and I might get in one way or another to 5k.

If anyone manages to get on to run it I'd massively recommend it.  It was a fantastic day.  People line the entire route shouting your name.  To be honest around mile 15 fat blokes outside a pub shouting 'go on keep going' does start to get a little irritating, but then it started to be helpful again around mile 22!

The roar of the crowd when you go round places like Cutty Sark and Canary wharf is brilliantly inspiring.

And as a further plus point I managed to completely avoid whatever happened in the football this weekend.  Looking on the website everything is ok yeah?

Yes. It's all fine and dandy. Just take my word for it, no need to check for yourself.

That's superb Saxondale. Both the run itself and the amount raised.

I'm going to use this to shamelessly crosspost my own slightly more modest efforts - the Muddy Dog Challenge is a 5k with some muddy bits/obstacles, and you run it with your dog, to raise money for Battersea Dog's Home:
