Looking at a long aul spell in the clink if he gets convicted 

Couldn't believe it. He's a really goody 2 shoes. I'd say he just let his house being used, as I know he's spent most of his time in SA training.

Here's the full charge.

Leon Reid, 26 (dob 26/07/94), Longmead Terrace, Bath
Conspiracy to supply class A (cocaine), permitting premises to be used in the production of class A (crack cocaine), concealing criminal property, and acquiring criminal property.

When I saw it first I thought he was after being caught with PEDs of the  sporting variety and the charges were from UKADA

I’ve recently began running at 7am, every morning. It’s made a huge difference to my mental health in just a week.

In fairness to you Tops, I was in the habit of doing it first thing myself, for a few months at least, it made the world of difference.  Unfortunately, it's a good habit I got out of. It definitely works, but isn't always the easiest to maintain. If you are in the habit, keep doing it.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Have a virtual marathon on the May bank holiday weekend.
Did 32km at the weekend which is the longest run in the training palnner and it's slightly shorter 25/20/16 in the next few weeks.
Have a friend running with me for the second half to help me through but it'll probably be a lot harder to run it without other participants.
Hopefully the Dublin marathon is back to normal by October.

Fair play to you. I just couldn't get motivated for a virtual marathon and my distances have fallen back completely. I wouldn't be too confident on Dublin going ahead but I will be training for Lanzarote in December so fingers crossed that will go ahead.

Dublin will probably go ahead but like London last year I'd say it'll be for elite level athletes only

Are you suggesting elite athletes don't post here?

shin splints are my biggest bug bear. i ran 1000km between march and december. gave it 6 weeks rest at start of the year to see if i could heal the issue. ever since i've only been running 20 to 25k a week. i can feel them again, especially after the 10k's. anyone got any advice? tried various stretches having read stuff on google but alas things are only marginally better.

It's most likely down to the bio-mechanics of your feet. If you have any pronation then you'll need to address it.

I've had shin splints since I was a kid and orthotics was the only thing that fixed it for me.

There are lots of variables to consider too - stretching, strengthening your calves etc...

Your running style is important too - I got video analysis done last year and when I run, I lean forward a bit, and that causes your shins, and knees to take most of your upper body weight. This is a problem will contribute too.

I couldn't get over how much difference stretching makes. 5-10 minutes in the morning and evening makes the world of difference, even without exercise. There's a reason the likes of Ryan Giggs and Tom Brady, who were able to stay fit as they got to 40 swore by Yoga and plyometric exercises.

i must do more stretching. i'm a divil for heading out for a run without doing much if any stretches.probably why the first 1km is usually my slowest.
