booey - me too! one thing i noticed was no longer having to haul myself up the stairs using the bannisters, cos i couldnt push down on my foot - a great feeling of freedom, being pain free!

Achilles felt ok again this morning, weird. Just over a 2 mile run done with no pain, really don't get it?
Oh well rest for me over the weekend, have a good one all x

Sarah - my hands ached abit this morning but not as bad  I am starting the actual tablets on Monday as I am out for curry and drinking tonight  and I need to give the booze up with this medication as there are or could be a few side affects  we will see

Dee - really pleased your run was pain free  maybe just slowly but surely is the trick

Finishing at 3 to hopefully have a run, it is peeing it down here  rubbish this weather.  Have a great weekend everyone

Hello all

Sorry for not being stuff and work done some running..but not a lot!

Sarah - I have suffered with Pf for a ocuple of years. decided not to have the injection but used orthotics, lots of exercises and cut down a bit on running...sems okay at the moment.

Booey - sorry to hear about the RA. Not sure what meds you have been prescribed, hope they do the trickI have Lupus (SLE) and take an antimalarial drug, seems to help with the joint pain. Occasionally have steriods but mostly can manage without.

Mykey - I see you are struggling with the timetable as well...hope things ease up for you.

Will try to get on here more often

Oh Dog I hate marathon training!

09/07/2012 at 19:14

did you hear about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac?

he used to lay awake nights, wondering if there really is a dog

10/07/2012 at 12:50

Mad - nice to hear from you and I hope all is ok with you and yours

I am taking Methotrexate, 6 tablets same time once a week for 2 weeks then if I dont have bad side effects up it to 8 tablets from week 3  can take a while to get working but the steriod injection I had last week has really helped  I have to have blood tests every 2 weeks

I did a nice 6.2 miles on Sunday and am out with the club tonight

Got Rugby R4L 5K on Sunday, it was my first race when I started road running last year so looking forward to seeing what I can do this year

Morning all

Sarah - LOL!

Booey - I really hope the meds help and the side effects are not too bad.

Master MWW's 13th birthday today, I now have thee teenagers in the house

11/07/2012 at 06:39

Booey, Hang in there. Hope the meds work and well done on the mileage.

Mad, I am allergic to teenagers, in fact I am allergic to anyone under 25 I think.

I need to head for higher ground. Dorset is a little damp.  A couple of my usual routes are under feet of water. Heng Head is OK but I am bored with it now. Gorgeous morning this morning so it could be Ferndown and part of the Castlemain trailway. Let's see how much mud there is.

11/07/2012 at 07:21

good morning all

i've not been on here for a very long time, haven't ran since december. my problem with left shoulder has cleared up but started to have problems with the right one, that is now starting to get better.may start running again soon in the meantime i've been doing wi-fit exercises

11/07/2012 at 09:41

Mad - enjoy the birthday celebrations  I am afraid I am like TL and children just do my head in haha

TL - you have had some serious flooding your way I have seen on the news  

Grandad - Hi and welcome

I did 5.6 miles last night with the club, Thurs we are doing intervals

11/07/2012 at 21:37

Good evening folks

Well done for all the good running going on

Booey-the key with intervals is not to go off too fast - you should run the last one just as fast as the first. Anyway you probably have already done intervals if you started running with a run/walk programme

TL-x train Canoeing?

Q-Welcome back. Shame to hear about your other shoulder. Fingers crossed you'll be back on form soon.

Mad-Happy birthday to Master Mad How are the rest of the family? Are you getting chance for the odd run?

Dee and Sarah-you still around?

Right so after a crisis of (running) confidence a couple of weeks ago coupled with work suddenly ramping up and getting some disappointing career news I AM BACK!

My running is going well this week, despite the weather. Work has settled down a bit and I now have a few options to deal with the career issues. I'm a weeble - I may wobble but I don't fall down. Actually I look a bit like a weeble at the mo... must do better on the diet.

11/07/2012 at 22:45

evening mykey,

thanks for asking, i'm still around but as i'm not trying to run at the moment, and am building my walking back up to post-injury briskness, i feel a bit of a fraud posting on a runners forum!

hi twiglet-legs, ah ferndown! hengistbury head! i must go home again soon, i miss it (17 years up in nottinghamshire, which is a lovely place, but dorset is home)

12/07/2012 at 18:41
Still around too thanks Mykey.

Had some things to sort out in my mind - since we lost dad a few months ago it changed how I view alot of things so taken the brave??? step of getting rid of the things out of my life that were making me unhappy. Feel so much better for it.

Running is going great got x2 2 mile runs in this week and hoping for another tomorrow.

As for the weather euurgghhhg the hospital I work in got struck by lightening yesterday, certainly woke a few patients up that we're sleeping
12/07/2012 at 18:41

Feck! Rain again

Not feeling terribly motivated to run this evening but

I have 5.5 miles to go, the Garmin is charged, it's getting dark and I'm wearing a dayglo running jacket... HIT IT!

12/07/2012 at 22:26

But Mykey, 5am  and the sun was out, the birdies (that were awake) were singing and Dorset was beautiful. You should have been here. There were hills too and the sea was FAC. It all went a bit pear shaped after that and it's still raining now. My running is still poo. Fab technique but utterly exhausting to maintain.  Is that better than crap technique but can go for absolutely bloody ages? It's doing my head in. I  don't have career crises, stuck where I am but loving it, in London tomorrow and again monday (colleagues funeral - due to retire in six weeks, v. sad). Next week is completely mental. London Monday, Salisbury Tuesday, Cambridge Wednesday, birthday Thursday   (dentist, hygienist, conference call for work) and software testing all day Friday. Olympic torch passes my door on Saturday of this week but bridge is full of potholes (been repaired 4 times in 8 days) and I can see someone landing flat on their face.  Life is a blast.


12/07/2012 at 22:43
Olympic torch is in my town too Saturday TW we must live close to each other
13/07/2012 at 06:51

TL-I had a long run the night before so a morning run was the only real option. Sorry to hear about your colleague.

Hi Dee

The run was fine, if a bit damp. Battersea was flooded....with JP Morgan employees to a race so my usual route was buggered up. Bit of very basic yoga this morning to ease things off.

Have a good day all.

13/07/2012 at 14:11

good afternoon all

TL that sounds like a busy week, sorry to hear of your colleague

we had the torch last week, great to see but was all over too quickly

well done on the run mykey

13/07/2012 at 20:45
Hi Q

Managed a 2.6 mile run in 30 mins today without pain.
Will have to think about some 10k training soon, as I'm aiming for one in October
Tips anyone?
