    Thanks! Used a satin varnish in the end which I regret a little, it didn't really take it up very well. Used briwax for the holes which worked nicely

    We started a Soul style table and quickly realised we didn't have the patience. Came out OK I think

    We have a cloud up 3, very spacious, bit of a different kettle of fish to those other two. For the money (140 I think) it's a good deal at the sacrifice of a bit of weight. Think it's 2kg without the footprint. Builds up very easily, I would say the poles feel the cheapest part of it, haven't had it out in a gale to see how they fare though

    Any ps now recommendations? Just got a positive result and I can't do my job from home. I'm on for some mega guilt free gaming

    Have just finished horizon, which was probably one of my favourite ever games. How's bloodborne?

    If you skin Richmonds and then stick them in some premade pastry they make amazing sausage rolls

    Also had some success over Christmas using them as part of a Wellington innards. Skin them, mix with stuffing mix (already wetted), toasted nuts and any herbs you like. It binds really well!

    Thanks. I haven't come across piriformis so I'll check it out. It's a strange thing because I have a manual job, lots of bending and lifting every day but it doesn't seem to aggravate it in the same way running does.

    I do think I'm quite heavy footed when I run. I had some knee issues that got cleared up by working on my cadence. I was down near 140 which I got up to around 155 on my steady runs. It's still pretty terrible I know but I'm 196cm if that's any defence.

    I think I will have to squeak in a physio trip (if/when that's allowed?). When I was rehabbing I did a lot of stretching and flexibility work, massage gun, even 3d printed a psoas stretcher but I don't think it was really solving the issue, just holding it at bay.

    Rambling post, thanks for everyone elses input too

    Has anyone come back strong from sciatica?

    This time last year I was training for an ultra and the plan I was following called for 5x5 minute intervals at 90-95% effort. I was near a track so I thought this would be ideal, it was my first time on one. Toward the end of the session I felt something go in my left leg (my inside leg on the track). After about two hours I could barely walk without tears, it was awful.

    I didn't run for 6 weeks then managed to ease back into it and ran a decent marathon (for me) during 1st lockdown. I was so fed up of nursing it that I threw in the towel after that.

    I miss it though so I did 5k a few weeks back but even with all this rest I could still feel it. Paying for physio will be a struggle at the minute (covid/furlough etc). Has anyone got any advice?
