I just want to thank you all for the great advice you monster runners give out all the time.<br><img alt="notworthy.gif" src=""><br><br>
Short version: <img alt="sad.gif" src=""> we missed the cut off by 6 minutes.<br>
We needed to make it to the 35K in 5:30 and we did in 5:36.<br><br>

Thanks for the input Pithydoug. I suck at taping my foot. I ran MCM and Richmond with an injured tendon and I know I wouldn't have had so much freaking pain if I had managed to tape it. I tried, but couldn't do it right, so I said screw it. But for trails, I may need to figure that out. I will check on those plastic casts...the idea scares me a bit, but I won't know til i try.
looking forward to learning it, dough!<br><br><br>
Tks Markc7! I am trying to figure out what the next one will be.
Doug, thank you so much! I actually copied and saved to try it this weekend. Sounds like what my PT tought me, but I am a dork doing those things. I guess maybe I have to practice a bit until I get it right. <img alt="smile.gif" src=""> Do you use that skin tape (not sure if that's what's called)? under the actual tape?<br><br>
oh, and BTW, I care less about the way it will look... you should see me with my HIP taped all way down my leg when I was bouncing back from bursitis <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> let's say it was an entertaining view <img alt="rolleyes.gif" src="">
<img alt="huh.gif" src="">
<img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> you should try the shaving if you have to tape your hip <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Doug, does the SS stands for Sex Symbol? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
Myron, somebody may bring on the handcuffs, I heard they are great on trails, is that true?
got carried away by the "love object" comment...
JJJ, trust me, I am seriously taking notes.<br><br>
but I don't buy your "did not shave" story... <img alt="wink.gif" src=""> c'mon... spill the beans...
huh?<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src=""><br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
tks Mud! I think I need the taping since it's the ankle I sprained last fall and ran through it too much. I need to give it a break. But I like also the idea of starting to work with the wobbleboard. I never thought about the duck running. I am a supinator. Wouldn't that hurt my knees?<br>
On this weekend's LSDs, I couldn't run at Umstead, so instead of using the sidewalk and road all the time, I used some of the grass (along the sidewalk). It's not too rocky, but it is more irregular (and softer), so maybe that could be a beginner's strategy for me when I can't be on the actual trails.<br>
I just signed up for Umstead TRail Marathon (1 month before the 50) and there will be some single trails on the course. Not all the way, but mabe I will feel I was able to finish something at this time (although it's not a 50K <img alt="sad.gif" src=""> )
