Lol, ta Cake   You're right too about the addictive side of it.

Not sure about abusing NSAIDs but you can get too reliant on them, ie remember reading about people with headaches that wouldn't go away because they got too used to taking painkillers for them.

Are you off out for a run today Toby?  Hope the legs aren't still sore

Yup, though only when it gets dark so I remain unobserved. Like a phantom. Well, a very wheezy phantom.

I try to avoid the NSAIDs as much as possible.

Often any aches I have are the result of a rushed post run stretch, and a non-existant warm-up.

Today I did 13 miles and thats excluding a 1mile warm up jog. The cool down was a 5-15 minute walk home and 45 minutes of stretching. Almost as much time in all as I was running .

When ever I skimp on my before or after routine the aches begin. Always with out fail.

Running  full on, on painkillers is risky, the injury is still there your just not feeling it. Best to rest while taking them or pull back on the effort.That way the area damaged gets a rest and because the pain is lessened your running motion is not effected as it was before.

As you gain in experience you will learn how to read your body better and many of the aches you have simply wont occur anymore as you get stronger.

You will just get other ones

Thats just the way it is

Thanks Stephen. (for nothing! Other pains?!! )

At the moment I have been doing a 5 min walk pre- and post run, with a small bit of stretching. I haven't frankly looking into the best stretching moves, I've just made it up lol weirdly though I've always been highly flexible despite my body size so I'm hoping that means my body will tolerate certain abuses It's harder for me to do a warm-up run as any running makes me more than warm! That will have to come later I think.

I'm changing my route tonight to a long, long road, so that I can just keep adding to the distance.

Yes you have much to learn of the Way of the Run.

Argh, owwww, mewl. New route, new pain. Definitely found it harder than last time, but still managed 30 minutes instead of the required 25 and could have gone on.

I saw a dead badger
10/03/2012 at 20:27
What was the new pain? Did you stand on the badger?
10/03/2012 at 20:57
Blisters forming on the arches of both feet and mega stitch on both sides of my lard (though I'm surprised it took so long to manifest considering what's jiggling about lol)
Shin still going to shatter, right knee feels weak but that might be cause of the shin

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I find it weirdly satisfying hehe

I think it's time to get some fitted shoes. I thought I'd lucked out because I've always been really really prone to monster blisters and I didn't get any, and took that to mean my shoes were good. Oh well!

And ewwwwew lol no badger corpse-bothering!

I admire your perseverance... and yeah, worth getting shoes that fit well. Strangely I only ever used to get blisters when I wore socks. I don't wear socks now and never get blisters...

Lucky git!

I'm tempted to do an extra run today and possibly from now on run four times a week.

Maybe sat, sun, mon, weds?
11/03/2012 at 15:41
If you feel comfortable.... run...
11/03/2012 at 16:00

How do your shins and blisters feel?

11/03/2012 at 16:17
Blisters I've knifed lol but I'm used to dealing with blisters, my right shin now rested isn't painful when I walk/bear weight, just a bit tender if I squeeze it inappropriately!
11/03/2012 at 18:31

Knifed them, eeek!   Compeed is good!

I would say don't squeeze it then lol

11/03/2012 at 21:46
Oops, I didn't run in the end, I fell asleep!

I guess I was more tired than I thought

I'm maybe going to go to Reading Sweatshop this week to get fitted shoes, IF I pluck up the courage to submit to treadmills and video cameras etc (I run in the dark for a reason!)
11/03/2012 at 21:51
Wear dark sunglasses when you go for the fitting... it'll fool your brain into thinking it's dark...
11/03/2012 at 22:02
In many ways I am a simplistic animal, but not in this way I think

Hmmm I think they might get the wrong impression if I walk into their shop wearing a balaclava...

Just give a different name... a metaphorical disguise..

whimper...Again I managed to complete 30 mins but I had to beat my will into doing it...My shin is worse and is either now making my right knee hurt or that too has just decided to join the pain party...I was really hoping to rely on an imaginary ability not to succumb to injury etc in order to get fit and light enough to not run the injury gauntlet every time...Yes, I know, but it made sense in my head.
