They're all too fast in the other thread!
I'm noticing my hip flexor is getting tight and that's just after one run. I think stretching is going to be the key.
Went out for a (shortish) LSR today of 6 miles, took it nice and easy as I have been experiencing a few niggles, hips and knees mainly over the last week. Felt good to be back out there on such a lovely morning. I have decided as the niggles are probably from doing zero stretching I am really going to try and focus on doing this after my runs (rather then heading straight for the shower and then having a coffee!). Mission accomplished today - lets see how long this lasts for!!
Hope everyone is either out enjoying their running, or entering the festive spirit
HM4, take things easy then and yes, s t r e t c h
Glad you enjoyed your run Lisa.
No need for stretching here as I've not been running all week and spent most of the weekend in bed with 'man flu'. Not the best holiday for my friend from France.
Don't worry I will do. Hope you feel better soon.
Got married in the last year, ran round the Olympic Park & Stadium before anyone else, did 2 halfs, a 4k race & 5 mile race with no pb's, although did come close for when I was running in the Olympic Park race. Sums up the year for me in 1 sentence !
LOL! You did ask .
hello everyone long time no post, sorry
have been having a bit of a rest after my half, but building up again now in preperation for Brighton in April. Did 20k on the treadmill tonight so feelin gquite pleased with myself. Looks like lots of good running been going on in my absence, well done everyone
hi Jason, so, what you been up to then?
Well done louise, 20k on a treadmill must be hard work?
Hopefully this flu thing is turning a corner and should be ok to visit the parents at the weekend for Christmas (Dad is unwell and wouldn't be welcome 'carrying' any additional bugs).
Since November 1st I've lost 1 stone of fat and gained 3lb of lean body mass so a net loss of 11lb and lost 2 inches off my tummy. Just need to replace the lost fat with lean body mass in the New Year and I'll be a happy bunny 10st 13lb now btw.
txs Jason and good on you for your marathon stuff, not sure I'm up to that commitment yet
That's great news.
Happy Christmas guys.
Louise well done on your 20k
Andi good going with your fat loss, hopefully some of it will stay off over the Christmas period
Motown Mark its always good to include a bit of cross training for strength and conditioning - I choose pilates myself - will only swim when the temps are in the 30's and I can dry off lazing in the sun!
HM training still going to plan. May include a sneaky 4 miler after putting the turkey in the oven in the morning (to allow for all the extra calories I will be consuming later in the day!!).
Have a fabulous Christmas everyone
Hi all, and welcome back MM and Jason. I ran a mile on the treadmill at the weekend, with only a bit of calf tightness afterwards - it's a start! The arch pain is gone completely now that I've done away with the orthotics (though I haven't run a lot so time will tell). A bit of PF on the right foot, but not serious - once it's warmed up it's ok. The nerve problem still limits my stretching on the left, but I think I'm ready to try again at building up very very slowly. Will stick to the treadmill with steam room, sauna, stretching and self-massage afterwards for quite some time I think. Diet's still going ok, and I've been doing heaps of strength training, core, weights, circuits etc. I'm going to keep up with that and focus on stretching for a while too before I get too adventurous with the running. Our park run is all coming together - we have set the date for our first run (though I'm not sure I'm allowed to say when yet, it's soon!). Here's hoping my running in 2013 goes better than 2012!
Good luck with the parkrun.
