Just take it easy Seren, you'll be fine

Roads down here are not too bad at all, a slight dusting of the white stuff over night on higher ground

I need to run this evening and remind my core what it should be doing

I got home from spin last night and ended up working until just gone 11pm and then massively overslept this morning. There really is little point in my working late, if I don't set an alarm my body will take the 8hrs sleep it wants.

You still got a hefty 'to do ' list Mousey?

23/01/2013 at 09:27

Yes but it's easing.  I'm hopeful that I'll clear the backlog this week and then next week I can get into a smoother routine.

The sleep thing is interesting rather than dire straits as I'm WFH at the moment anyway.  This means I don't set an alarm.  It's rare that I'm not up between 7-7.30 with natural body clock and animals that want feeding so I find it amusing that if I just roll things back a bit, my body will take the sleep.  It just means I'm a bit later to my desk today than I would have liked and will finish a bit later tonight (in the sense of a normal day) but will try and go to bed at a proper time and not work until all hours.

I am quite lucky given my resident lion that he doesnt actually hassel me for food unless it gets really late then I fear he might start on me!

I have had several 12 hour sleeps this last few days

Mine are sods, especially in summer when they will start charging round with first light.

The other thing I meant to say is that the 'to do' list has eased sufficiently that I am training this week, which I wasn't doing so well on the last couple of weeks.  So that's clearly improvement!

It's all good.

Hopefully Chav .. planned for Saturday before nights

I have just printed off free tickets for the Tri show on 1st March, although the weekend tickets are only £9, I havent been for a few years so thought I would have a visit

4.5/5hrs of running a week is a good lot !

23/01/2013 at 11:43

Meldy it's worth considering the shoes you walk in.  Are they flatter than your running shoes or a lot more wedgy (most running shoes work on a 10-12mm difference between the front and back).  If you're in ballet pumps (for example) or massive heels then that can cause problems through the calf muscles or achillies.

Walking biomechanics are also quite different to running biomechanics, very much more heel oriented and so can be very different if you are a forefoot striker while running.

You are absolutely right and I have considered all those options, I knew I would be doing a lot of walking on Sunday and dressed appropriately .. it has got to be to do with the mechanics of walking somwhere along the line, that said I am a bit of a heel striker when I run so you would think that that would be an issue as well ??

I think raising the heel in my boots/walking shoes could be a step in the right direction, what I dont know is what the injury is

Ballet pumps??          I know I look like Darcey Bussel    but really  .. 

23/01/2013 at 11:55

Well, I was going to go for Moon Boots but...

23/01/2013 at 12:03

I can't wear the ballet pumps that the teens wear that are completely flat from front to back.  They cripple me, exactly what HC says about there being no lift.

Do you remember all thosePF discussions we had a few summers ago?  All those kids going round in flipflops or Uggs all year round are going to have a miriad of problems in years to come, You need support and a certain amount of heel lift or cushionning
One things for sure, all this slow snow running is helping core and form!!   Its slow but I'll take anything at this stage
48 mins today along the tow path, longest run for a very long time!!

23/01/2013 at 21:29

hmm interesting, i personally get sore feet if i wear shoes which are too flat...

53 mins for me, irritating under 5 miles but at a steady pace with more in the bank

My pace is so slow at the moment but given the conditions here I am trying not to worry about it and will reassess when it gets drier !!

23/01/2013 at 21:35

yeah i'm not getting hung up on the pace, that will gradually drop. conditions haven't been slowing me much howeve.
