for those looking at threads but dont want to intrude ........
Hooble Doop Peeps!
Kwala, it must have felt good in the "zone"! I can't wait to get the "runner's high" everyone talks about!
Been for my R3 W3 x 4. Left ankle, shin, calf and knee are now hurting! Sitting here with my friend the ice pack! I am determined not to let this stop me! My back was more painful this time too, got better as I warmed up, but is bad again now. What am I to do? Whimper! I don't want to go too slowly at it, as I have my Boxing Day target and would be gutted if I missed that!
Still feel good about getting out and doing it though!
Anyone on here going to be at the Great South Run at all? I will be spectating (hubby running).
Hi all, sorry for being away so long, work & home been a bit manic, trying to settle into a routine again now, including talking to you lot! So, deep breath, here goes ...
HnB, sorry to hear you're suffering. Sounds like you're doing the right thing with the RICE.
Kwala, wow! The mojo is back! Sounds like you're running is going really well? You'll soon be doing that 30 min non stop. Can't say I've experienced what you've described as yet, here's hoping ...
LK, good luck for the race today & enjoy celebrating at the BBQ. I'll try to look back for list to see what you're doing. Ahh found it, the handicap idea could be a laugh? Friendly competition or taken too seriously? Will done on blazing those hills! Rest is a good thing too. Enjoying BodyPump? Even planks?!?!
Mo, well done on the 15 miler! Good distance! And well done for getting back into it.
Ecky, sorry to hear you're ankle is playing up. Mind you, I must have been away a while, wow, you're running some distance now! Nice one!
Smint, waves. Hope you move's gone well and you're running is too.
MnP, well done on your 35th Marathon!
As for me, GNR is just over a week. Hope all the faff of deferring from last year, date change this year, hotels going bust, etc is all worth it.
Running is good. Pace is no where near what I was doing nearly a year ago (OMG, was it that long ago?!) when I developed my ITBS. Jut gad to be doing that distance again. But the knees are still holding out. Sore for a few hours after running, but recovering better than ever. 3 rest days a week at the moment might be the answer (2 runs, 1 BodyCombat, 1 BodyPump).
Did the last long one (11 miles) last sunday. Tapering now with 6 miles this weekend. Been doing Sunday LSRs with a couple of friends recently, normally run alone, so that's been really nice. The miles go by much quicker.
Take care all. I'll try I'll try to be more regular...
Great to hear from you Burnie - thought you'd abandonned us! Glad to hear you're back 'doing the distance'. Are you still doing the pervy on the table exercise for your ITBS. I'm sure your GNR experience will be memorable - from everything I've read it's a totally love or totally hate race, hope you love it!!I went netball training last night, managed to turn my ankle - it's not swollen, and I can walk without limping. It just hurts if I put my foot in certain positions (I know - don't put your foot in those positions then, fool!!) so I may just have a slight pull on the top of my foot. Was going to run tonight, but will probably take the bike out for a spin instead and keep my weight off the foot. I have PT sesh tomorrow, and then will probably try a little plod on Sunday, see how the foot is by then. MiL's birthday Sunday, so going for a meal. Like you HnB, the rest of my weekend will be taken up with washing and housework
Hi all sos not been on here again for a couple of days,training hard and been busy with me charity stuff.Fab to see you back Burnie we has missed u..
A week to go till my big run Yipppppeeeeeeeeee I cant wait. Managed 6.5 miles on Mon in 1h 10 mins and felt ok so I should be able to do it in 2h 30. I had a mail from BBC Sport the other day and I am on a shortlist for my story to be shown as part of the coverage for the Great North Run so Im keeping it all crossed and will find out on mon and Ive been asked by the HRTrust if I would help them out on the marathons section the are introducing i.e getting places in runs up and down the country so Im well pleased.
I will catch up with what everyones doing soon I promise,Hope everyone has a good weekend,Im taking it easy now til Sun with just a couple of runs and me boxercise.
Thanks Lk I just so hope they do it because it will do so much good for awarness.I have decided just to do the neon headband and sweats with matching ones for Iggle Piggle my friend has done me a t shirt with the Camerons Smile logo too,bit boring but I realy want to see how I manage the distance first before I do costumes n things. Well done on your run,thats an amazing distance, you will be brill on ur HM. Sounds like you have had a very busy but productive weekend.
I have been a bit lazy today but will do a little plod tomoz,I so dont want to tempt injury,OOH got some of them fabby running socks today wow they are so comfy cant wait to try them out tomoz ,Im becoming a rite running anorak.lol
Hi to everyone else,hope you all had a good weekend.
Well done Micknphil what an inspiration you are.
Ive not been running today but boxercise tonight,still waiting to hear if story will be on BBC,they may show all of them tho cos theres only 7 of us on the list. I sent off some more info and pics from when I went to house of commons raising awarness to try and persuade them to choose Cams story.Im sooo exited now and just cant wait.
Hn B sorry to hear you having pains,I have a bit of trouble but after resting its usually ok,I never run with pain tho.I used to go swimming cos I was still using my legs but it didnt hurt.
Hi everyone else hows it all going?
I will be watching Ecky! And when you are running make sure you wave at every camera you see. (If you notice any of them that is!!!)
HnB - you've prob already told us this, but save me reading back - did you get a gait analysis done when you started running, and get running shoes based on their assessment? How old are your shoes? Until your shins are feeling better can you do anything else with less impact- walking, cycling, swimming?
Healing vibes to you ~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~
