Am signed up but did the Bundoran 10 mile last weekend and having trouble with glute and lower back. Havenít been able to run since. Any one ever have problem with their Sacroiliac joints? From some light reading think this might be the issue. Need to get it looked at but struggling to get time.

Nothing worse than niggling injuries that screw up your training block. I've really struggled over the past few months with a combination of things. The physio will see point you in the right direction but working on some fundamentals will do you no harm. I've been following these guys on Instagram for a while and they post some great stretches for hips, lower back etc. Getting as much flexibility in those areas as possible will help you a lot.

This guy also does a lot of focused exercises that should help you.

This one being specific to your injury.

Good luck!

NY times did a podcast series (Caliphate) about ISIS and one of their police force who returned to Canada. Interesting listening.

Watched a documentary called Free Solo about the rock climber Alex Honnold and his attempt o scale El Capitan without the use of ropes. Unbelievable and well worth a watch.

Have a look at The Dawn Wall. Brilliant.

He was first class. Very accurate.

Sing Street. Good enough. Bonus points for the music. Lost the run of itself with the ending.

Eye in the sky. Very good thriller. Last one from the brilliant Alan Rickman.

Anyone got a decent link to 207?

This one has been stable for a while. Use an AdBlocker as the site is a POS.

Another bad loss for the fighting Irish at the weekend. Hopefully the clown Kelly is on the way out as he is running out of people to blame.

Good effort from Above & Beyond for their 200th group therapy show. Possibly a bit trancey for this thread.

Another vote for Koh Tao. Preferred it over Samui. A lot quieter and chilled. Especially compared to the madness of the full moon!

Last Chance U is absolutely excellent, just released on Netflix a few days ago. Scooba, Mississippi reminds of a lot the rural counties in Ireland.
Finished watching it last night, really good watch i enjoyed it and it uncovers a lot of what goes on at that level of sport in america especially the fact that most of the guys dont want to be there and only want to play football and the struggle the teachers and staff go through to get them on the field. Would love to see a documentary following players who didn't make the NFL but fell back on the education they gained even though at the time it wasn't appreciated.

Brilliant lads. Loved every second of it.

Inside job
The global financial meltdown that took place in Fall 2008 caused millions of job and home losses and plunged the United States into a deep economic recession. Matt Damon narrates a documentary that provides a detailed examination of the elements that led to the collapse and identifies keys financial and political players...

One of the best documentaries I've seen .. Watched the Big Short again and made so much more sense.

Watched it a few months ago. Incredibly depressing that it was done five years ago and nothing has changed at all. The American government is in bed with Wall St so nothing will change anytime soon. Really liked the interviewer within the piece. Stuck it to a few of the idiots he was talking too. Especially the guy towards the end who said he had three minutes left once he started to ask the hard questions.

Interesting that they used Elliot Spritzer. He's had his own sticky situations with prostitutes and campaign funds back in the day. Spoke well enough though. Has got me in the mood for the new Anthony Weiner documentary that promises to be a car crash.

Varys was on the boat as there was Tyrell and Martell flags shown in the armada. Must be ganging up with them after he spoke to Olenna. She was great as usual.

Enjoyed the Giro. Some crazy crashes, especially for the Katusha rider, Zakarin.

The climb on the second last stage was awful and it was suspiciously powerful from Nibali. Really like Chavez. Would be great to see him get a tour win. Hopefully he is clean though I just watched the Pantani doc which has jaded my view of cycling again. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it before.

One of life's simple pleasures is listening to a radio baseball commentary when it's done by a really good commentator, and one of the best, vin scully, is starting his last season as the Dodgers play by play man. He's an absolute pleasure to listen to. If you get a chance, listen to him before he goes away. I don't even like the Dodgers but I've always loved listening to him. A bit of an American Micheal o muircheartaigh.

Well said.
