The Cake Runners Athletics Club :-)
I'm here! Yesterday I was really tired and didn't manage to get on here. It was my own fault. I stayed up very late watching a film the night before and then I was up at 5 coz daughter woke up worrying about some homework she had forgotten to do. I spent the whole day walking around in a trance and even fell sleep on the school bus home. I'm not usually that silly, but I do love films. Today is my busy day (7 lessons and a Turkish lesson after school, plus a run). Also, it's my daughter's last violin lesson today before her exam next week and I want to go to her lesson with her and accompany her on the piano so her violin teacher can see if the balance is right etc. I hope that doesn't mean I'll have to miss my run - I should be able to squeeze it all in!
Anyway, sounds like it's still stormy there! Hope you can all still get your runs in.
Limper - I like horses but I'm a bit nervous of them. They must be lot of work though, aren't they?
Ecky - I wish your kiddies better. Horrible to have them all ill at once. Also, I've been following the foot diagnosis discussion! I also had a painful foot a few months ago. It went as mysteriously as it came and only lasted a couple of weeks. Hopefully it is something like that.
Hi to everybody else! I should be back on later.
Ecky- Hope the Ecky family are on the road to recovery & you are able to go out for a walk. Take an umbrella and you may fly!!
limper- I'm afraid that I am rather scared of horses- I always approach them with trepidatopn when I am running past them.
Jude-Whta film were you watching? Jude I will look at your pictures I am sure you won't look slow.Good luck on getting out for a run later.
Bye for now.....
Diagnosis of today's appointment: Tendonitis of the knee.
I saw a different doctor today and he seemed quite angry that I'd previously been told to finish those tablets and then try running on soft surfaces. He said no running at all - no soft surfaces, or treadmill (not that I use the damn things anyway) for a month and I'm to use a gel on my knee three times a day for that month, deep massage, front and back of the knee, for quite a long time; not just a few minutes. Said that he himself was out for eighteen months with a sports injury. He said the knee joint itself is 'excellent'.
I did ask about physio, but he said he's confident we can solve it using the gel and resting it. I think the difference between my shoulder problem and this knee problem is the shoulder area was quite tight - that's what the physio said - and the exercises I was given loosened it up. My knee isn't tight, it doesn't even hurt that much as long as I'm not putting too much pressure on it (walking is OK). He said a knee support might not be a bad idea for now.
I'll be sure to see the same doctor next time - I'll make the appointment a little way ahead of the end of the month so I'm not hanging around for a week or two, which can happen if you want to see a particular doctor. If he gives the green light after a month to run again and the same thing happens, I'm going to be more insistent about physio.
The other thing I have to find out is what caused it - my prime suspect is that time when I was on a long run and it stiffened up, but I kept on going to hit my target. I won't be doing that again.
Not long in from my 11.38 mile run....it was lovely and sunny and only a tad windy.....so glad my running club was cancelled last night as I really enjoyed my run today and kept it a nice gentle pace.Did a different route again which involved a few big mahoosive hills and did it in 1.57 so was really pleased.Will up to 2.15 hrs next week...hopefully...
Aw Ecky...Hope the family are feeling better...at least you get it all out of the way at once...Hope you manage to get some rest and your wee bit of freash air later on.
Jude..............Ah bless you were just tired..was worried when you hadn't posted after all your mahoosive mileage...lol..will have a look at your photos in a moment.
RR....well at least that doctor seems to know what he is talking about...best to keep seeing him for continuity.....lets hope you will be up and running again soon.
AF..well done on your run this morning.
Speak later folks

Franny-Well done on your 11.57 mile run- I am hopefully doing my 1st 10 + mile run since my 1/2 Marathon on 30/10 on Sunday. It too will be hilly as it is on the Sussex Downs.
RR-Hopefully you will be out for no more than a month. Good luck and keep us upto date.
well, I made it out for a very windy 3 mile run this morning. Got a pain in my arch though, getting fed up with my feet now! I'll see what the physio says later about it.
RR - sorry to hear about the imposed rest, it is a pain.
ecky - hope the kids are all better. Must have been an awful night. Hope they are old enough to aim the sick so you weren't changing beds and washing sheets all night - I remember those kind of nights well!
well, Friday is cake day at work (we take it in turns to bake cakes for the maths department) so something to look forward to tomorrow!
