Every journey begins with the first step and all that!
Roy - Welcome back, thought you'd forgotten us
Sorry to hear you have been unwell also, seems to be a common theme at the moment. I'm still not right, got pneumonia so no running till Dr says so,at least 2 more weeks, that'll be 3 weeks without a run
Talk about missing what I love, no running, no diving, and no kisses as my fella is ill too Things can only get better though, maybe even a lotto win tomorrow I wish
Still no word from K, I'm worried about her, wish she would pop on even if just to say hi
Stewart, just remember Rome wasn't built in a day, it takes time and pushing it too far too fast will only result in injury. I'd say continue with your run/walk programme and build up to it. Pardon the pun, but it's not a race it should be FUN especially when you are doing so very well.
Oh, and welcome to drag conditions
Keep up the good work.
How is everyone else getting on? The Brum training going well Bellasmum? They starting to encourage you yet?
I'm off to the hospital for my first xray to see what damage I have done, lets hope not too much so a quick recovery
Glad to hear that everyone is starting to feel more upbeat, hopefully that is winter blues behind us all and can look onwards and upwards to the year ahead.
I have booked my first race May be a bit mad, but I'll be running the Great North Run (all 13.1 miles of it) on the 16th September for Crohns and Colitis UK!!!! Sponsors welcome
Now to get the Dr to let me run, get some new running shoes and keep smiling
Hi all, hope everyone is keeping well.
Stewart, sounds like you are making brilliant progress.
As for if I can't wait, it is 29 weeks on Sunday, I've got a rough training plan together and now have my fundraising pack so need to start the sponsorship bits.
I've started by setting up a just giving page http://www.justgiving.com/ange-best need to keep it updated too, may even put some running pics on it.
Have got my vest top through with the pack too so part of my outfit is sorted for me
Happy running and great weekend everyone
K Welcome back - really good to hear from you, even if not the happiest of news. I'm feeling really much better, had my xray Wednesday for my pneumonia, get the results on the 6th March so can't run till got that. Went yesterday for my ultrasound on my ankle, the woman said it is a calcium build up by the achilles and bone but no idea what will be done for it so still guessing on that one. I feel your frustration in that you want to get out, but need to take it slow or have a break, but if it gets you right then the short term frustration has to be better than the potential long term effects? Or that is how I am looking at it
Mum is doing ok, not really been out much though, combination of dad having been back in hospital and with visiting etc being a pain on travel/time, then there boiler broke down and mum decided running when you have no hot water may not be the best idea in the world. She is planning on getting out again though soon so hopefully will see her on here again telling us all how well she is doing
Roy - how are things going for you? Feeling any better or still taking it easy?
Stewart - keep it going for the team seems you're the healthy one of the bunch
Happy running/resting/recovering everyone xxx
Still here! Sorry to hear about all the health problems you are having. Sounds like you are still focussed though which I am in awe of. I struggle to get out and I have never been sick or injured. The excuse of illness would be so easy for me to take!
Training has been put on a temporary hold until my new trainers arrive. Ive been out walking with the buggy - a lot, but my old Asics had been dumped in the cupboard from hell (we all have one - right?) and were squashed so badly that the sole was mishapen! They were 4 years old and had seen me quite well, so I decided another few days wouldnt kill me so went to the local running shop for some new ones. Chose which ones I wanted and then came home to find them on Amazon for £30 cheaper. They should be here in the next day or so and then Im outta that door!
Does anyone have any experience of running with a buggy. I am scouriing Ebay for a proper running buggy but at the speed I go - along the lovely smooth seafront prom, Im not sure it matters too much. It would be so much easier if I could run during his naps.
Anyway, happy Sunday all. The weather here is lovely, it would be perfect for a run!
Hello all - you have all been busy keep it up
I have not been out for a couple of weeks - my hubby spent a few days in hopital but with work and to/fro etc did not find time to get out. Then had company for the weekend - then to cap it all problem with the boiler (no hot water) - decided washing when clean was one thing but when hot and sweaty another matter - so again no running.
Have been out this weekend - slow start again - Sat 3.1km in 30min (with last km up hill) - did some slow jogging half doz times between odd lamp posts (on flat and downhill parts)
This morning walked 6.1km in 1.10 - again not speedy but tried to keep steady pace, Tom is rest day - left knee a bit tender so giving it a rest,
Will keep you updated with my progress
Well done mum, you've had a brilliant weekends training, just don't over do it, slow and steady remember. Know the hills are tough, but that's what you get for living at the top of one, no option but to run them
My ankle is ok, just have to wait to hear from the consultant now.
Go back to the Dr's on the 6th to see if pneumonia has cleared up enough to be able to run, really hope so coz my Great North Run training plan demands it. It will be my first HM, infact, I've only ever ran 9.16k before now so going to be tough. I have a plan, it gives me flexiblity and is only adding 1k per week with 3 week repeats when I reach 10, 15 and 20k so should be managable. If all goes to plan will have covered the distance before I go on holiday in July, will then just need to maintain and have 6 weeks to tweak between hols and race. Did I mention it is 29 weeks today!!!!!!!
Liverpool had a good win, shame it took them so long to beat Cardiff though
I'm off to chill now after being in work for 6 hours today, then back in tomorrow
Here is to a good week ahead
Well keep up the good work all - and hope all fitness problems sort out for everyone.
I have tender knee from the weekend - so resting today - will see how it settles down before pushing it too much
Evening all, how is everyone doing?
Mum - how is the knee today? Settling down so you can do a run/walk tomorrow?
I'm getting excited now as it is hopefully now less than a week will I run again!!! The way I see it I'm at the Dr's at 5.20 so should be able to go for a run about 6 Not that I'm counting though
Stewart - ouch!!!! is all I can say, hope you are recovering well. It is definately dedication to be going out on your birthday, many happy returns. Don't push too hard though, all the reading I have done says to rest when needed and not try to over do it coz you have to miss a session, wouldn't want more injuries.
Brilliant run though and a good time, bet made you smile to know you've done it
You're right too, I can't wait to run, especially today coz the weather is so nice it is calling me to run, but have to keep focused, NOT till seen the Dr, for once I'm doing as I'm told. Been looking at new running shoes too so all exciting just to decide and then get some money then can buy, then of course, to run
Roy - how you doing with your prep for this weekends 10k? You ready for it?
Keep running everyone
