Feel free to join me!
B2B thats a great read and hope the bother in law is OK now.
There was an American guy who had a web site who used to do these 24 hour race things around tracks, was a great read as he used to post daily. Cant for the life of me remember the name of it. Was brilliant read and wish I could remember the name its bugging me now so if anyone here knows what it was let me know !!
Almost embarrases me to put this now but was out again for anotehr 2.6 today. One thing I have learned on this comeback is its going to take a while !!
March 7.8 miles
2013 13 miles
Not feeling very positive for Braintree - my left hamstring and the ice has pretty much put paid to any form of speed work for a few weeks now and the extra mileage I have run has knocked the stuffing out of my legs - I am running every other day now in hopes that I can get some bounce back and eating Nurofen like smarties!!!!
3:30 as B2B says don't be embarrased - it does take a while to get back but it is worth it.
The hard work is done Grendel maybe a sports massage to fix the leg? Im looking into getting one.
Just ordered some ninja tabi boots as a new running experiment! I figure they have all the right stuff...light, thin, built in gators, feels like a sandal but with covering and wont get sucked off my feet in the mud! On paper the perfect choice for winter, in reality?
You are actually going to run in these?
Just found a really interesting article regarding tabi...
Cant be much cushioning in those mate ? think I will stick to the old Mizuno wavr inspire.
But really intersting artivle there
Be careful when you run in them - you'll be leaving some strange footprints out in the wilds of Hertfordhire!! SKy News will be out there with film crews looking for Pan.
ha ha ha I love that idea Grendel!
3:30 well I already run in sandals so cushioning is the last thing I look for Im just really interested in trying them out! Ive never once caught a ninja running so they must be damn fast!
I used to work near Leavesden Studios you round that way?
Actually tempted to go out tonigh but gonna stick with my every other day routine for a bit. Want to make sure this comeback is done propely. No need to rush
Not too far, im in the sunny Borehamwood
Ran 8.5 miles yesterday which was the first run for nearly a week. Looking forward to getting out some day soon with the temperature above zero. Today is now the 12th day of snow.
On Monday I had a good walk round the local woods. The snow was more than knee deep in places and it certainly gave the legs a good workout. looks like it will be a while before i can run the trails again.
Another trip to the dentist this morning to get some more work done for the implants. All being well it will all be finished in 3 weeks time. I have had to wear a denture since before Xmas and I'm fed up of it. I spend most of the time without 4 front teeth rather than wear it.
Hope you get sorted for your race Grendel its been a lot of work getting this far.
3:30 - We were all in your position not so long ago, one day you will get over the hump and it will all seem so much easier
B2B - You're becoming a gear junkie, you may need help. Hope the massage helps your aches and pains
HRHB - ha ha ha I think you may have a point there! My blog seems to be my therapy....or maybe it is the cause?
With HRHB`s comment in mind lets have a breakdown of gear you own....
Luna sandals, Xero shoes, merrell trail gloves, vibram five fingers, injinji socks, ronhil leggins, nike dry fit shorts, raceready shorts, 2x hind running tops, nike dry fit full length top, tech tops erm...x5 I think? compressport calf guards, buff, cold killer gloves, garmin forerunner 110, tresspass bum bag thing, cheap camelback rip off rucksack, Ultimate Direction AK vest, regatta outdoor coat, tresspass head torch.........................
hmmm being able to list that off is a little worrying.....Doctor!
Only just starting to get back into things from xmas in truth. A combination of work and weather have ensured i've managed to get out the house no more than half a dozen times since xmas.
Drove myself down to the local lake and put in a lap of about a mile and half. Felt really really good. i'll get back into the gym for some weights tomorrow and then Friday make an attempt of one and a half laps of the same lake.
Back out again today another 2.6 in the bank
HRHB thanks sure it will get easier. Weather seems really bad your way we get flurries most days but nothing that lies.
Gareth - I used to like to drive down to the seafront and run along there but since my daughter wrote the car off I am car-less. Although its only a mile away its down a massive hill and I am in no shape to run up the bl**dy thing !! One day maybe !!
Any of you guys on here ?
welcome to all the new folks and well done for getting back out there!
3:30 - just found one of your targets, get up that hill! Nope not on there, any good?
Nick - ha ha ha yeah its beginning to look that way too! Since moving to the tech tops, running in a normal t shirt feels strange. I tend to soak them and then they are just uncomfortable and cold or in warmer weather I just feel like im suffocating!
Just oined not much different to here really, they do have a bit where you can log your daily miles and it keeps a total of the miles ran and the total time. Also does a weekly league table of what memebers have run how many miles, also got an accumulative one where this shows all miles run since being a member and over how many runs.
I am on there as "making a comeback" how you know it was me ?
The hills massive and a mile long !! OK going down but a bugger to get back up - havent even tried mate maube on day, although we are trying to move at the moment house on market for 20 months now !!
