INSPIRE, a beginners 'virtual' runners club. Read Page1 please
Hoorah for Dee and Deet.
Well done on your run. The hillocks are a tad itchy today . I managed 7.6 this morning against the wind and the rain. Here's one for the mathematicians: I am running at about 6.5 miles per hour and the wind is hitting me at 40mph.
1) how fast am I actually going (I did think I was going backwards at one point so must have covered the same piece of ground at least 3 times - forward, back, forward),
2) how far did I actually travel in an hour and 11 minutes and;
3) do I get a prize for getting back in one piece?
TL-1. Your ground speed was 6.5 miles an hour.
2. 7.6 miles
However, you were having to work harder to overcome the additional drag (or air resistance) which is relative to the square of the velocity of the air you were moving through. So if everything else remained the same roughly 50 times harder than if you were running at the saem pace in still air...I think.
Another good run this morning which means tomorrows might not go quite as well.
ran this morning, back before 7.30, my earliest yet i think.
however, p.f. in left foot worse for rest of day, needed a lift home from work, so . . .
i'll ask doc for injection on tues, tho i'm quite anxious about it.
pain is exhausting and i feel v low
avon's skin so soft spray oil (yes, avon) is THE magic anti-mossie stuff - the sas guys use it - no word of a lie. and my gentleman friend and i used it in argyll and it kept all away and doesnt smell bad.
Mykey, so that's good then?
1) that's what I thought, 2) ditto, I worked everso hard espesh as some of it was uphill and into the wind. What I didn't mention was that for half the run I had the wind on my back and there were also some downhill bits too, 3)
How was your long run? I was in London for the weekend, got back at 5:30, went out for an 8 miler with another 9 to be bagged in the morning - to mate's, with mate, back from mate. A 5 on Tuesday, last running school on Wednesday, got a 13 planned for Thursday and a rest day on Friday. Something will happen on Saturday, not sure what yet.
Sarah, do injections help pf? I know about Avon so soft. it's good stuff when I remember to put it on! Well done for getting out there. I too am usually an early bird.
The big news is that I may run with the club on Tuesday night. Watch this space.
Not run since Fri MIL been with us and its been stressful, she departed this morning also had hospital yesterday re rheumatoid arthritis, consultant did ultra sound on them and we could see lots of inflammation etc so confirmed yes thats what I have and it also jumps round my body and of recent been affecting my knees so I start meds this week which can take upto 3 months to work if my body accepts them so had a steroid injection in my bottom which will help me for a couple of months I have to have blood tests every 2 weeks fingers crossed that in the coming months I get out of bed and feel my age not 80
Well done everyone on your running, I shall be out tonight for one myself thats for sure
I also knew about the Avon skin so soft and its what the SAS use, I actually cant stand the smell of it but if I ever go to the jungle I will use it
Sorry I've not been around. I'm having a bit of a 'mare with work and personal stuff messing with my head and running has taken a bit of a back step for the mo. As Arnie said "I'll be back" but at the moment Garbo's "I vant to be a looon" is more appropriate...
Keep calm and Jog on
evening twiglet_legs, mykey et al,
had the injection this morning - WOWZERS that was SORE!
relief was in minutes, lasted quite a few hours and then a gentle ache returned, which i knew would happen (its not a miracle cure)
even tho initially pain-free, i still stepped gently and got a taxi home and did nothing else all aday, and have arranged lifts to/from work tomorrow and thurs, so . .
wish me luck for friday morning - if pain free i trot again!
booey, i empathise - i had those jabs in both my hips at one time or another, and it is similar one i had in heel today.
Booey, ouch ouch ouch
Sarah, ouch ouch ouch.
Mykey, you look nothing like Garbo.
I ran with the club tonight. It was kinda good but I got told off for running too fast with the novices and shouting "C'mon" and leading them though cowshit infested puddles . I enjoyed it though. Kit is in the garage, I daren't bring it into the house
have you seen . . there is a thread all about dirty laundry?
'what do you do with your sweaty gear' or something . . . .
wise move to bani sh-it to the garage . . . .
I think I have trench foot
just to say thanks for all the support and humour.
i've realised (no, thats not quite true - my gentleman friend realised and then told me!) that i have been so focussed on not being able to go out for a trot, that i had completely overlooked the fact that my WALKING speed and distances had also decreased substantially.
so, i have decided i am not going to try running until i have build my walking back up to my brisk rate over my 'longer' route to work (2miles there, 2 back)
i really dont want to go thru all this pain again, so it'll be slow and steady for a while.
today foot PAIN FREE if i remember to walk steady and slow and not rush around, so i hope this will continue.
TL - trench foot
Sarah - glad your foot is feeling ok, like you say take it steady
Dee - take it easy you dont want to aggravate it
Mykey - hope everything is ok
I ran with the club last night and did the usual 5K, really enjoyed it although very warm I was actually a front runner for a change
The injection is working well, hands feel alot better and I can walk down the stairs normally in the morning
Still going strong I see.
The thread that is.
