Eddie Iz Running - Wednesday 5th August
05 Aug 2009
Today’s weather has been lovely which has made such a difference after yesterday’s flooded roads.
Eddie ran through Ystradgynlais today and stopped off in the high street to say hello to all the supporters who came out to applaud him.
He ran down the street where he used to live and dropped in at his old house. Some of the neighbours came out including a 98 year old lady who has lived there all her life and remembered Eddie!
His feet are brilliant today as he is wearing trainers that are half a size bigger than normal and so slightly wider.
Jo, Eddie’s Sports Therapist, has been stripping his ITB’s...basically giving him lots of deep massages from his hip to below his knee so he doesn’t develop Ilio-Tibial Band Syndrome. The massages are quite painful and can lead to bruising.
His team decided to stop for lunch at the Penyeae Inn (near Brecon Beacons) and discovered a big hut with 2 pet skunks!
