Hi all,

So much for an easy run, intervals/hills tonight, I decided to do hills as I did the interval session last week, warm up jog to the base of stratherrick road then it was up and down  stratherick then up Merlewood and down times 5 once completed a jog back to the sports centre, I was totally wacked by the end, it was only 3.93 miles but probably the toughest session I've done to date. Just checked my stats for the month 79 miles so far, and I've still got two runs left this month

  Maam, I'll make sure to pay full attention to the body, I woke up one morning with a sore back about a fortnight ago probably slept funny that night, however it appears to be getting a little better, a massage sound like a cracking idea.

By the way how are you getting on? hope the knee is not being too painful

Sounds like a tough session, not one that I would fancy.

I'm doing ok, knee really rough today, had really bad night with it Had painkillers and feeling a little better now.

Good luck with other other runs, but take it easy with back.  After my knee I worry with pushing too much

Hi all,

De ja vu, out with jog scotland last night and guess what another thunderstorm, absolutely soaked! I must be mad.  Apart from the downpour it was a pleasant enough run two miles up hill 1 mile down and the remainder of the run on the flat, just over six miles in total in 1hr 5 mins bring the total for the month to 85 miles.

Well done, you are doing great.  did you sign up for the HM in Sept/Oct?

29/06/2012 at 20:45

No not yet Maam, but I will

Hi all,

Cricket cancelled today because opposition couldn't raise a team so I went out for a run instead 6.2 miles in 1hr 7 mins 90 miles for the month,

It didn't feel right at all my calf felt tight so I'm going to rest up for a couple of days and then re-assess.

Sorry about the cricket, good run though.  Resting is sounding good.

I had MRI yesterday now just to wait till 11th for the results, fingers crossed.

Hope things are going well for you.  I have now officially deferred my GNR place until 2013 Needs must though as still not walking let alone running!

Sorry to hear about the GNR, but it's probably the right decision, but all the same you must be gutted

5 miles last night at an easy pace, I've still got a calf/shin niggle but the foam roller at the gym seems to be helping, I'm also doing lots of stretching I'm determine not to turn this niggle into a full blown injury.

Be careful, maybe speak to someone at the gym to have a look at it just to be on the safe side. 

I am gutted about the GNR, but it will be for the best and come next year I should be fighting fit again.  I'm booked on the Silverstone HM in March so have that to work towards, will be good running the GP circuit.  Not worried about time, just getting back to fitness and having the satisfaction of completion while staying injury free is my aim. 

Off to the cinema this afternoon to see MIB3, should be fun. Still finding it tough finding enough to do to keep me motivated and going while I'm off.

Enjoy the Cinema

Hi All,

Hope you enjoyed the film, and your not too wet down in Englandshire, I hear the weather is terrible.

5 miles last night with Jog Scotland, I was helping last night so I ran at the rear of the group, making sure no one was left to run on their own.  It was a mixture of hills and steps on the route so it was quite challenging, manged to get round comfortably enough 5.4 miles in 58 mins @ 11:15 avg pace.  Can't wait for my long run at the weekend depending on the weather I may run it on Saturday,

Happy Running

Sounds like you have a good training plan in place and reallly good that you help out now to help others along. Really proud of you for that.

The film was good, but so was the ice cream that I had with it

Keep up  the good running

Hi all,

Glad you enjoyed the film and the ice cream Maam , long run today just over 10 miles in 1hr 51mins, last 2 miles were a struggle my lower back tightened up making it a little uncomfotable.  I'm happy enough otherwise, kept my pace fairly easy all the way, overall it was an enjoyable run in overcast conditions, thankfully  not a drop off rain to be seen.

Happy Running

Hi Stewart, you had a good long run. Keep up the good work.

I've been enjoying ice cream, daytime TV, and been back to the hospital yesterday to get the results of my MRI.  Things didn't go so well as scan not conclusive so I'm in for theatre tomorrow afternoon for surgery.  They decided that I'm an urgent case.  As a result I don't know anything and may have to cancel my holiday

12/07/2012 at 15:43

Hi Maam,

I'll have my fingers crossed for you , heres hoping you can still go on holiday, the silver lining if there was one is that you're going to be on the road to recovery sooner rather than later, good luck tomorrow, please let me know how things are going as soon as you feel able.

On Tuesday we did a five mile loop involving a hill it took 50 mins, the first two miles were on the flat @ around 9:30mm, certainly a little quicker than I would have started normally, slowed down a little on the hill but picked the pace back up once got to the top.  I'll be out again this evening it's overcast so perfect running conditions, not sure what group I'll be in this evening as I'll be helping out again, hope to be in either the four or five mile group.

Happy Running

Thanks Stewart,

I will let you know how I get on, once I'm back in the land of the making sense. I'm hoping I'll be back online Saturday but all depends on how I do.

Good luck for your run tonight, and sure you'll do great helping.  Bet feels really good helping others along.  Let me know how goes, sure will want something good when I come round.

Hi all

I'm back home now, still sore but must be getting there. They have cut part of the lining of my knee out, wasn't the cartilage after all by the sounds of it.

Should be fine for holiday, but haven't seen surgeon, they sent an ENT Dr to see me today so couldn't answer questions. Will have to ring secretary on Monday for more info and next steps, don't know about work/driving/diving or anything. Haven't got physio and not back at outpatients for 6 weeks.  Nice to be home though

Maamalade did u have keyhole surgery?

I had a "small" knee op, cut away some patella?

Anyway the best thing I found was a cheap childs football (£2 asda type) squeezed between the thighs... don't wait around as I found my right leg had no power at first but soon strength came back.

good luck and well done both of you for motivating each other on this thread when the others left, nice effort.
