rocker - he said this morning that the really painful site seems to be on the edge of the patella, he did say it was likely that the xray won't reveal anything at all, maybe just a little osteoarthritis/wear and tear which he said is almost to be expected. He said the good knee seemed a little worn anyway. He didn't quite say 'at your age...' - but he is about the same age anyway. He is keen for me to get back to running and said that even if I have dodgy knees and running wears them away quicker than not running, it is still better overall to be running, and to go back and see him if I can't get back to running....
so xray this afternoon and physio tomorrow afternoon
Sorry I didn't get on much yesterday but had a quick read back.
Chilli, please don't worry its not been that long since we ran. I will let everyone know when I have the final total as I still have money coming in. I still have to add the £235 I had which seems to have come off the page
Rocker that's lovely to hear you have a friend and one that understands the running. My Hubby used to be 90 miles away from me when we first became Friends. He was my pen pal . I had to write to him cos my Mum wouldn't let me use the phone for hours on end. I still have all the smushy letters.
Mathschick I really hope you can get back to running.
Matt take it easy. Say Hi to the lovely Mrs Matt for me.
Well one whole week of eating well (apart from last night when we had hot waffles with ice cream choc sauce, nuts and golden syrup. It was just like a Snickers. I did compensate though and did a really hilly 5 miler this morning. I felt brilliant and was really strong up the hills managing to keep an 11 min mile pace throughout. I reckon the track training is making a difference.
Hope everyone else is okay.
Brill news Rocker on your new friend Liz... and that your ankle is all healed now...yayyyy...good idea to have a rest and run when you want...good for the body and mind.
MC......hope you get good news...the radiologist will be able to tell you there and then if they can see anything altbough the proper report should be with your GP in a week.
Matt..take it easy and don't push yourself
Jude...hope you manage to get through your day without too much trouble...you will be so so tired...take care.
Loula...not got an official date for running..just goinjg on how I feel. HOWEVER I did do 2 miles today on the tready in 20 mins...not completely pain free but not too painful either so thats good....Ickle Chico is a cutey and everyone stops to pet him when we are out...LOL..You take it easy sis...if you are feeling tired you need to rest...take a leaf out of Rockers book
By'eck...Hope little Moo will be fine and as MC says its just an innocent murmur that will not cause him any troubles. that was some walk with Moo in his pushchair..lovely to get out there isn't it.
Hello ot eveyone else and hope you are all well and healthy and to anyone managing to get out running...enjoy it and well done.
Right going to take Chico pup out a wee walk..got work at 2pm so he goes to his granny's for a few hours where he gets thouroughly spoiled...LOL
Hi Ecky...well done on your hilly 5 miler...super woman sound like you are continuing to get stronger and fitter..wey hey
Hi Franny, awwwww I hope Chico enjoys his walk. I must admit I am feeling a lot better than I have for a while. I just need to stick to eating well and stop eating too many unhealthy extra bits.
Me to Ecky...although mostly I do eat healthy...i think...lol..though i haven't put on too much weight with not running infact I am a bit lighter if anything...the crosstraining and swimming must be helping as is out walking Chico.Must sayb it was nic eto be running again even if it was only 20mins on the treadmill.
Franny-Plesed that you haven't put on weigh from not running. Chico must be keeping you busy ontop of all of the swimmimg.
Rocker-please to here that you have a new friend who is into running.Definetly a good start. Fingers crossed for you.
Matt-Take it easy sir. I am sure before you know it you will be running.Enjoy your couple of days off.
Chilli & Ecky well done on your 5 mile runs.
LLB-Take it easy.Look forward to seeing more pcitures from your race.
MC-Sorry to here about your woes hope the XRay is ok.
Well I did 6.3 miles this moring have a 1/2 on Sunday so will drop a run this week as I feel I need to experiment about my running the week before races. Some of the people I run think I overdo it the week before hand. Thsi week I will do another 6 on Thursday and 4 on Friday. We will see if that helps me get a decenty time.
Bye for now..
thanks for the good wishes everyone
at least I am able to get to the pool - 80 lengths today without using my legs. bet my arms are going to get achy
boss - your times are always speedy, but going into the half with fresh legs will make a difference
ecky - well done on your run
franny - careful with that ankle, don't do too much too quickly, and please remind me of that when I start running again
MC - hope the x-ray and appointments go well this afternoon and it isn't too long until you hear something
When I met hubby he was living in London and I in Belfast. After our engagement I moved back over to the mainland but then he had to return to USA for 18mths! We had a week together after our wedding and then another 3 mths apart until he got his settlement visa. We then had 6 weeks living together in the same house in Belfast, before he got a job in Newcastle. (Fortunately our big girl was concieved during that time). A year later we both moved to Stoke-on-Trent and finally began living together properly.
Oh, I have been such a good girl and been out on my bike Not just a couple of miles around the town, but a proper bike ride of 1hr 50mins. Found the one and only hill in Lee Valley and cycled all the way to the winding top even though I had to use my lowest gear and still thought I was going to pass out before I got there.
Then went to Starbuck to meet Mr Chili and put all the calories back on with hot chocolate and shortbread
Got to work now, bye!
... and then there's me ... again getting the best deal. I got to marry the beautiful Chili, have a Latte and her company and my legs feel fine.
chili - great ride, well done.
oaty banana and apple muffin anyone?
ooh, running with a headtorch in the dark is fun
signed off till next weds now, so could go back on Thursday. Really hope I can go back next week, it is so hard being off, I feel so guilty, especially for my exam groups - I'll have to do extra classes after school for them when I get back
okay here we are...some pics from the beautiful trail on friday...have had to wait for results and pics fromXNRG, they uploaded today.
the top pic is the start!
2nd pic is near start-thats me at the front of the pic in white top and purple headband.
last 2 pics atr of the lovely woods, and those bits were flattish-nice after all the ups!
nice pics loula
been for the xray, radiographer said she couldn't really see anything wrong with the bones, cartilage and other soft tissue doesn't show, more detailed report will be sent to gp. She did say that GPs can't order scans, so if he decided I needed a scan I would be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon, that can take ages apparently. Well, have physio tomorrow...
Lovely pics Loula.
MC - So sorry you still don't know what's wrong exactly and that you have to take more time off. You mustn't feel guilty. It's pretty impossible to teach if you can't stand up for long. It's great you are still doing your swimming though. Well done! Hope the physio helps tomorrow.
Chili - well done on your bike ride. Sounds lovely - I'm a bit jealous to be honest.
Ecky - well done on your hilly 5 miles and your healthy eating.
Franny - well done on your 2 miles. It sounds like you are being sensible and taking it slow. Running after Chico must help.
AF - sounds like a good plan, dropping a run this week. Hope it helps your half on Sunday.
Matt - hello! Be careful! Take it easy!
Hi to everybody else!!!
Off to mark 64 tests and 64 pieces of homework...yawn,yawn. Feeling a lot better but couldn't eat much today, just some fruit and 2 slices of bread and cheese. Hubby is going away tomorrow again for 5 days. He is going to Istanbul to translate for a man he sometimes works for at a textile fair. Gonna miss him and all his help.
Anyway, better get cracking....
Oooops! Came back just to say good luck to Rocker and his 'friend'. How could I forget something as important as that?
Jude - not sure how you keep on top of the marking! Can't you do peer marking of the homework sometimes? depends on your school I guess, but peer marking is one of the 'assessment for learning' things that we are encouraged to use!
