Trying to keep up my 100km January and went for a run whilst out in Chicago during the week as I was told a run along the lake was pretty spectacular. Went out at 6am and knew it was due to be about 3-4C, but for whatever reason I couldn’t get warm in my shorts and T-shirt. Got back to the hotel after a 5km, and checked, it was actually -9! It will definitely be the coldest I ever run in !

In this case it's probably a bit more than that but that's mostly because the other bike has disc brakes, which are heavier but excellent. The science apparently says the aerodynamics of the frame are a good bit more important than the weight and as it happens an aero frame actually tends to weigh more than a regular one - more material to make the funny shaped tubes.

Nevertheless I suspect what you are getting at is 100% true in that there's absolutely no need for a plodder like me to be pricking around with a superbike and nothing is going to make the difference that losing half a stone of Christmas bloat will!

If you're still with me. My question is, how do I get the run to show up on my strava cos I dont want to tell her it's a load of bollox after she spent money on it. Thanks.

I can see it in the Fitbit app but that's no good for me. Myself and a few lads have everything set up on strava so we can keep an eye on each other and give a bit of encouragement etc etc.
Shit, sorry. I told you it would sync. Bit ridiculous that it doesn't.

Ask the missus would she mind you swapping it for a Garmin.

Ah no, obvs not your fault

I went with the aul chestnut of telling her it's my fault, I'm technophobe and an idiot, the piece of kit is perfect etc etc but I just dont think its for me. She said she will try and return it and if she cant I'll just pay her so shes not out of pocket and it will get thrown in "the press".

Anyway, back onto strava today with the phone and a slow and steady 10k in 58minutes. Feel good after it especially since I was out last night and started drinking cans when I got home to watch the NFL so very happy to even get out

@Goodluck2me, I see you got a hike around Lough Tay in this morning. I've wanted to do it for ages but have never done the route so slightly reluctant to head down, its almost an hour away from me.

Is there a trail to follow right the way round? I'd be going alone so if there's a trail or railway sleepers to follow, it would be ideal.

Boredom is a terrible thing.

Having a look for races online and what not. Find out theres a 10k up in the Gap Of Dunloe, just outside Killarney, the same weekend I am there for a GAA match. Race at 9am, match on the afternoon.

I immediately regret this decision but signed up for it now with a mate so will do it anyway.

Yeah there is a well worn track all the way up to the top which is 3.7km up, we then went back a different way which is less obvious, with people who knew where they were going, even then the river crossing near the end was flooded so we lifted the trousers and braved the cold water. Itís stunning scenery though and well worth it, even for the summit and back the same way.
Bring boots if possible as itís quite mucky, I wore runners and slipped a good bit.

Getting obsessed with the new HRM, very interested to see I ran 22mins for a park run PB a few weeks back at 150 average, went out on Saturday with a touch of jet lag and ran 24mins at 165 average. Was truly shattered after it.
Will definitely make more use of it going forward I think.

Phisyo advice wanted

Went over on my ankle last night and it feels like it's ever so slightly sprained. No real swelling but maybe showing a hint of bruising on the inside , on a scale of 1 to 10 it feels about 1.5 when I'm resting and 2 when I walk on it

Didn't ice it but I did elevate it, rest a bit, put on a compression sock and took an anti inflammatory tablet (more for my shoulder which was already in trouble before I landed on it) last night.
I want to be able to run again by Monday but the question is whether I would be better resting or going for a walk today?

Based purely on guesswork, surely resting?

@Laz - what sort of time commitment would you be looking at to get gait analysis and order a pair of runners in that Amphibian King place?

Also, what would be the most accessible parkrun from the middle of Ranelagh village could anyone tell me? Thought there would be one in Herbert Park but doesn't seem to be.

About 30 mins or so. They can be busy on Saturdays you could possibly add 10 mins on to that. Well worth it.

I would think Bushy Park would be the closest. Marlay gets great numbers.

Yeah, I agree. The whole RICE thing has been debunked. Personally I think it's best to let the body repair it, with bruising and/or swelling. Resting until there's zero pain.

Me too. Are you getting any tests done to get your max?
