INSPIRE, a beginners 'virtual' runners club. Read Page1 please
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!
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
Sorry for not being around...family 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!
did you hear about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac?
he used to lay awake nights, wondering if there really is a dog
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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)
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!
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.
TL-I had a long run the night before so a morning run was the only real option. Sorry to hear about your colleague.
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.
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
