Post 20 km run sciatica? Does stretching help?

I think my hip has got tight from trying not to put too much impact through troublesome ankle :(

I travel with a plastic seat that helps get my back into a much less sciatica/unhappy hip-prone position. It's a Backjoy. Wonderful thing - picked it up in the US at Bed, Bath, and idea where one would find such a thing in Australia, though.

And then there's the hollow-core foam roller and the field hockey ball that are always in my bag, and KT tape if I have run right after a long travel day. The Couch Stretch and field hockey ball to the Tensor Fascia Latae (think I spelled that right) generally untangles most things once I arrive. But it's the silly plastic seat that makes travel bearable. I just have to remember to pick it up when I deplane...

Good luck!!

I feel as though 'deplane' may be an Americanism; how about 'emplane', as in "I will shortly emplane in Dubai, heading for Milan"? :)

Just don't implane as I feel as though that could end badly.

Safe travels! Hope you survived the long flight ok.

I'm slightly concerned that Bulletin 1 for WMOC was released on 24 June 2017 but to date - despite the promises - there's been no Bulletin 2. It's only 13 days away.

One bit of American flying terminology which is disconcerting for speakers of the Queen's English is "we have been cleared for takeoff, we will be airborne momentarily..."

Good that Bulletin 2 came out exactly one year to the day that Bulletin 1 was released... just two hours before we head off and of course I can't download it (or the start lists, stupid internet connection).

Yes, annoyingly they weren't available to download before I flew out, but won't we get a printed copy of the bulletin in our registration bags? Not so sure about the start lists though...

Managed to download and print before we flew out. I finally know whats happening with the long qual/final too after 12 months of not really having a clue about how it worked (well I still don't know how qualifying works just that there is a middle qual and a middle final, which acts as the long qual).

Yeah, I skimmed over that lengthy explanation because I figured Blair will be able to clarify it more concisely to us when we get there.

I had to look it up - the proposal went round and round in circles so many times that I'd forgotten exactly what the final result of the process was. The gist of it is that the bottom 25% of each middle final gets relegated to the next level down, and the top 20% or so (depending on numbers) in the B middle final get promoted to the A long final, as well as the best 2 from each final from C downwards. There will also be promotion between lower levels (e.g. C middle to B long).

I'll just go where I B long.
