haile - could be your IT band, cos it might be tight as a result of TLD, try stretching it out twice a day - hold the stretch for 30 seconds *3

i am now qualified to give you this information as i have had confirmation that i passed the sports cert through this am

Unfortunately not.

Swan Pool is a bit tight on safety and my club isn't registered down there - I had got round it due to a lifeguard ex but he had to train on Wednesday so I couldn't swim. I am planning on a 90 swim without a wetsuit first to see what happens

Its hard to know what to do fisrt - one thing at a time to figure it out or as has been suggested everything first and then cut individual things out - hoping to do a half at the back end of September finance and transport dependant

Gawd lummee, you go away for the weekend and get back to:
2 rest days
5 mile run easy
5 mile run steady
6 mile run slow
1 mile jog 5 mile fartlek 1 mile jog
2hr long run

I've got a tweaked something too, so this week is complete rest (maybe a swim), and let the cartilage in my kneecap grow back, ten I can come out to play again.

S'okay, I've got croc working on summat.

Coach's marathon plan is all fine and good, but I don't have a marathon at the end of it...

Get proper massage for the IT band - it makes a hell of a difference. Get her (or him) to run their forearm up and 'strip' the band and the muscles it's connected to, right the way up from the ankle to the hip. And try to stretch off the hip flexor too as it can tighten the IT band..

And I don't so much do it as... well, should do it but are too lazy.

But then I'm a cretin.

Got my allpix pic through yesterday - looks good, much better than I thought it would look with the proofs. He's cropped it nicely and sorted the colour balance. I phoned them up, told them my trouble with the website timing out, and they mailed out the one I wanted with an invoice. Paid by cheque, all fine and dandy.

Going to do a montage thingy with that and my race number in the same frame. Actually my spare race number - I binned the actual one as it smelt like a 3 day old corpse. And yes, I do know what that smells like.

Just need to find a frame big enough, and a wall that is in an incredibly prominent place...

a bit like this haile, but i tuck the straight leg under me

the it band only goes from your bum to yur knee BTW

07/08/2006 at 18:05
I know, but the muscle and fascia have connections to other muscles, and these can become tight as a result of a tight IT band (or tighten the IT band themselves).

I always used to get my ITB pain under the knee, top of hte shin muscle, which is why it went undiagnosed for so long (that and crap physios)
07/08/2006 at 18:28
i bend the knee so that the foot is next to my bum

sort of like crossing your legs but with the leg underneath flat to the ground
i will have another look and see if i can find a picture

M1 thinks it looks freaky but i think it works

2t - kind of like "your hip bone's connected to your thigh bone, your thigh bone's connected to your knee bone etc etc" :-)

07/08/2006 at 18:32
i do, it sounds much nicer than the day i have planned

i have to go to work in the morning and then an appointment at the womens hospital in the afternoon

anyone want to know why???

thought not

Scafell Pike eh? Couldn't be bothered doing a real montain?
07/08/2006 at 20:39

Actually, there's a lovely hill near Avimore with a cafe within spitting distance of the top. And a monorail running to the restaurant. A pat on the back when I summitted that bugger, and a look of horror as 30 5 year olds ran past me on a school trip...

Pah. You want to get your arse up An Teallach. I can act as guide if you're interested. Less 'Touching the void' and more 'Touching the Cloth'. That was a bit grim in winter.

07/08/2006 at 21:28
