Happy Festivus

...its from seinfeld.

the bum was better with the local anaesthetic but 2nd cortisone did nothing.
sports med guy quite convinced its ischial bursitis.
3 weeks off running similarly did nothing so started back last week.
may as well have a little bit more pain but be happy because i am running.
seeing a hip surgeon in early feb but very mindful that i am unlikely to want anything done.
no doubt will just suck it up for a few more months before getting frustrated again then repeat the cycle over again.
hopefully not too many more times!

knee bursitis has been fine touch wood.
the upper tibial pain (also touch wood) seems to be non stress-injury as it flared up a few days ago but settled quickly with a popliteus loosen and mobic.
but i have said that before ;)
will keep an eye on it.

ran a JRR at coot-tha in 1.40 or so and a few 10km flats over the last week.
then fats fatass today.
a little longer than i remembered at 24.1km
A&D was 850/500.
the year i was first up the top (thanks to greg and hube stopping short mind you) i got to the far cafe (+500m) in 2.32 (2007).
this year was a 2.40 on the slightly shorter course.
i did push harder than had planned to (hard to resist chasing deb, warren, mandy and chris when u see them up ahead - even if they are doing the return trip as well).
but my 2007 effort was a gritting teeth effort in a 'pre-bogong form' year so a 2.40 at this stage is pretty pleasing.
seemed to be speeding up along the way and teh gps thingy said so also.
main thing of course is that i pull up ok.

giving serious thought to the trip down to mt beauty/tawonga south in 12 days for B2L (rather than B2H) L being lanfords gap of course.

oh yeah and turning 40 in a few days.

40 .... jeez you are getting old ( from an even older 51 yo).

Hope all the small 'niggles' behave themselves for you bro ...
We are not at B2H (or even B2L) in 2011 ... Michelle is on 'restricted' runnning (5km flat) but we still hope to make 6FT in March.
Look after yourself ....
