hi kg,
am still suffering but have managed 3 races in the last 6 wks
5 miles ----- 38mins 20 secs
10k ---------47mins 51 secs
5k ----------22mins 08 secs
But felt really awful during them and even worse afterwards. Have not got the scan yet.
Am only managing around 20 miles per week as hips and back get really sore
Am on holiday in Portugal at the moment
have been here for 6 days and have only managed one 8 mile run as it is so warm and hilly. Would love to do Blackpool but dont think i can get fit enough in time but I may as well enter and hope to do so
Keep up the training and do see about the knee

great marathon time. Am still getting nowhere with my injury. Ran a 10k four weeks ago and had to walk twice!!!! finished in 53 mins!!! longest run i have done in 13 mnths was half mara in june 2003.
Am sick of all the quacks.physios, doctors, chiropracters, osteopaths, podiatrists. All they do is take money but no results.
Hope your knee gets better.

knee seems to be a lot better,havent done much training these days but my right thigh
gets a dull pain after a run.
i have the glasgow 1/2 marathon at the end of the month, so better get running.
hope thongs get better for you.
23/08/2004 at 16:00
glasgow 1/2 marathon in 1.51, very hot day
and drinking the night before did not help
but good to get racing again couple of blisters on my toes and legs stiff today
but feeling fine. how are you feeling these
24/08/2004 at 03:07
Hi kg,
am still suffering. am only doing around 15 miles per week. If i go above 5 miles my hips ache so am only doing 3x5mile runs in an attempt to build up slowly with lots of rest and stretching.
Did a 10k two weeks ago ---- 50m18secs --- was on target for 45 mins but blew up in the last km, probably due to no long training runs. I won't give up yet.
how is your knee. Hope it's getting better.

ran the STIRLING 10K today at just over 47m
weather ok but earlier and now it is raining very hard. we seem to be having rain most days.
my next race is DENNY10K in 2 weeks, knee
still not right but not a painful as it has been.
how are you keeping?
30/09/2004 at 16:52
DENNY 10K this weekend and then going for
havent done anything specific for this race
as it was a last minute chance.
just getting round will be enough.
how are you?
04/10/2004 at 01:29
Hi Ken,
still slogging away but not much better. I would give anything to be as fit as I was at Barcelona. Am doing 15-16 miles per week and loads of stretching. Am afraid to race as a flat out run wrecks me for days. The thought of a marathon fills me with despair as I cant get much further than 10k without pain. Good luck with Brussels and dont injure yourself.
How did you do at the DENNY 10k
21/10/2004 at 12:48
ran the BRUSSELLS MARATHON in just over 4hrs. but felt i could have done better with more training.
a few problems with there fist marathon,
started early ,winding first 2miles, not
very scenic and an uphill and cobbled finish. may try next year if can get a
deal on airfares.
how are you?
knee less bothersome these days,this maybe
due to less running.
weather here gales and torrential rain.
30/10/2004 at 22:14
hi ken,
congrats on the Brussels run. Am still crocked and only doing around 15 miles per week. Am afraid to enter a race and run fast as I feel so bad after. Still i will soldier on and hope for better times. last road race of the year is a 10k in 3 weeks time and i might enter.
Keep up the training and glad to hear about your knee

been rejected for london but have my no for
rome marathon and have signed up for blackpool
marathon. have been training last week but weather today is minus 3 will have get out ther and run .
how are you .
23/12/2004 at 03:06
Hi ken,
am still not getting better. did a mile race flat out 6min 10sec. could barely walk for a week afterwards.
Even slow runs are now hurting. Used to regard a half marathon race as an easy gallop but now even thinking of that distance hurts. i might take a few months off running entirely, then build up slowly to see if that will help.
Go easy on the knee and stick to grass and trails for the long runs.
Good luck with Rome. I would do almost anything to be fit again
07/02/2005 at 15:40

now only 5 weeks untill the rome marathon
the last 3 weekend i have ran 11/2 ,2, and
23/4hrs at marathon pace. knee still ok
i have also signed up for the blackpool marathon in june.
regards ken

ran the ROME MARATHON in 4.25 it was run over miles and miles of cobbles but a great place to visit. great to meet the folks from the web site and the organisation and the cost,medal,
backpack were terrific value for money ,
how are things with you?
getting back in training for BLACKPOOL in june
