No run for me again, in pain left knee and right ankle has joined in. Have struggled with it before, too much too soon, too many hills. Very miserable with the pain, even with pain killers.

On a positve note have moved hotels and am  now in some mega suite in the Angelhotel in chippenham - very posh. I dont want to go home!

Oh no Louise not good must be miserable when you itching to get out there.

Try and just enjoy your posh surroundings and chill
02/10/2012 at 20:46

Posh surroundings help ouchy knees and ankles. It's well known

Seems to be working My be the wine and painkillers though....

02/10/2012 at 21:31

It all helps!

02/10/2012 at 21:38

Boy you have all been busy. Wine and pain killers Louise. LOL. Yeah take it easy, a week of no running is defo better than 4-6 weeks of healing with no running.

I had my second trip to my club and met some more very nice people. Wow! what a nice bunch. I am officially a fully fledged member today having paid my joining fee. From speaking to one of the girls they do alot of socialising which sounds great. They are doing a race prequel for their annual 10 mile in sittingbourne on saturday which I will be doing. Aparently there is one mother of all hills at the start which doesn't sound too much fun. LOL. The offical race is on sunday which I will go and cheer them all on.

I wish i had joined much earlier. My new Brooks ST5 running shoes will be here tomorrow so looking forward to trying them out.

Happy running peeps.

Dave, hope you'll be back soon. Good luck with the orthotics, hopefully the cheaper modification will work.

Graham, that all sounds very promising. Don't try your new trainers on the ten-miler though!

WTK I agree, spectators cheering makes all the difference. I really want to do a mass-participation race just to see what it's like atmosphere-wise.

Club tonight. Hill reps up a 500m hill behind the prom into a headwind which really meant business. That particular road has the world's worst camber and no pavements. It was a good session but my God I'll be feeling it tomorrow. Particularly as I biked to the new gym for an hour-long pilates session then biked to work, worked, then biked home, then went to club night!

One of my long (and deadly) shifts at work tomorrow so will be doing nothing but biking there and back.

02/10/2012 at 22:51

Carpathius, club night sounded like a blast all be it very hard work. I am working on some hill sprints on thursday. WOW its sounds like you have been very busy though.

Well, I have my 2nd 10k since starting running at the beginning of the year (The BUPA 10k in Edinburgh). Have continued running at least 3 times a week on a regular basis. . Really looking forward to it and really hoping that I can do a time of between 55 to 60 mins. I managed a time of 1.01 for the EMF 10k in May and that was with stopping a few times. So fingers crossed. Will update you of my time on Sunday.

hi Guys 


trust everybody i well , firstly appologise for not being here for a while but life occasionally take over 

done a parkrun this weekend and achieved another PB which i was very pleased about achieved 26.50 

trainng for the GSR is going well with the exception of this week but that is work related ,but feeling very confident 

how is evrybody else. HM4, Carpathiushow is the training going


speak soon  

03/10/2012 at 12:56

Graham - surprisingly not too bad this morning, just the usual aches. Good luck on your hill sprints tomorrow.

Grant, good luck! I reckon you'll be well under 60 minutes if you don't need to stop and it was hot in May.

 Tsk tsk 7th skip, what's all this about having a life?! Well done on your parkrun PB, that's seriously speedy. Glad the training's going well, and you're supposed to build easy weeks in so you're still on track

03/10/2012 at 13:02

Carpathuis, good news. My legs ache this morning but I am wondering if it because of the trainers my brother loaned me. I found out this morning that they are cushioned style running shoes from asics. The ones he loaned me on saturday were not and the ones I have bought are support running shoes.

Still running tomorrow. I may just do a 6-8 mile run with some hills before I do the 10 mile on Saturday.

Well done Grant by the way. Yeah it won't be long at all.

03/10/2012 at 19:05


Like your style on pain relief.  It's my style also.


That hill sounds interesting. 

7th Skip,

Good luck with the training & well done on the pb.  My training is debateable at the mo.  I'm doing a 10k on 21 October however the rainy weather has been aggravating my previously broken shoulder.


03/10/2012 at 19:50

Graham, it's surprising the difference trainers make. I wore the wrong ones a while back and hurt because of it.

HM4, I hope your shoulder's feeling better. Hopefully the weather will improve and your shoulder along with it.

I'll have to get a photo of that particular hill so that you can see what I mean - at the edges the road surface curves downwards really badly, looks like it was modelled on a half-pipe!

I was lazy and didn't cycle to work and back. Bad Carpathius.

03/10/2012 at 19:55


It appears to be fine at the mo.  It's this winter I'm not looking forwards to.  Last winter was a learning curve which I couldn't be bothered to learn.  However as I want to train thru this winter in some form I'm going to have to learn to deal with it.

03/10/2012 at 21:00

Pain improved athough still present,no running but might try a little tomorro.

Last night away, enjoying fine environment and peace, back to the madhouse tomorro

Evening all hope everyone doing well

So went for induction at new gym today and some how ended up being signed up for there indoor mini tri in November!! Lol they got the dash and the full tri I just doing the dash. 2 k run 5 k bike 300m swim. I'm not really sure it will be my thing all that rushing around and I can't do front crawl well enough for toffee lol!! I know a few of the girls down there are signed up aswel so shoul be a giggle if nothing serious. I have my next 10k race booked 2 weeks after so may help me stay focused for that.

Anyhow, trying out the new equipment they got, did a steady 5k and started messing about with speeds and intervals but knicker in big knot trying that so will attempt again on Friday.
Had a good swim and sauna afterwards (luxury with no kids in pool for a change)
Second Pilates session tommorow night looking forward to that. I really ached after Monday's class!!!!
03/10/2012 at 22:55
Hi guys

Sorry to hear training not going so well , but that everybody is fine

Training tonight was absolutely rubbish, treadmill , rower, weights everything was just such an effort , ah well there's always tomorrow

Speak soon
04/10/2012 at 08:09

Sam glad to hear you are going again to pilates, I find it amazing how small movements can make you ache the most!

7th skip fab time for parkrun, I am currently hovering at around 27mins 40 and would love to break into the 26 min mark!

Louise an enforced rest can often be really beneficial to your training, as it allows your body to recover and adjust to your new training programme. Oh and wine and analgesia is the way I do things too!!

HM4 I feel for you. My asthma always starts playing up at this time of the year with the dampness and changes in temperature, and I am really hoping that I manage to contine training through the colder months, especially as I am signed up for Brighton 10k in Nov & Brighton HM in Feb

Haven't been out since my shortened LSR on Sunday, however I have managed to source trainers on line and am hoping that they will be delivered today in time for me to try a new running club!! Email response from them was much more positive and the secretary assured me that I had run faster then him in my recent 10k and therefore shouldn't worry about running to their standard. Therefore please delivery person, deliver to me my new trainers

04/10/2012 at 12:29

Carpathius, bike pilates bike workbikke run bike presumably collapsein a heap. i am impressed.

Lisa 123 good luck with new club and new trainers

Sam your new gym sounds nice

hello to others, went to a class last night, the 'abs' bit is pilates, i am not hurting so can only assume i wasn't doing it right . rest today and long run tomorrow, a 13 miler and then I think it is a bit of a taper before the race  on 21st.
