Keeping our group together
Well hello everyone, I am so lax not chatting with you all and Ffran I am so sorry I didnt wish you luck for Snowdonia, well done to finish so well carrying injury!!! I remember when Eddie Izzard ran his Marathons. At first they where hard and he had lots of problems but the more he did the easier they got and his problems eased. Doing two races close together is never a problem as long as the training is good and the gap inbetween is handled correctly.
Nessie, we keep telling you that you do far more than most of us but in a different way, the energy you expell in a day would run a marathon!!!!!
Toby, take it easy coming back, nice and slow to ease your way back in.
Wel I am still not running and my knee has not gone down, I am trying rubbing Ibuptofen gel on to reduce the swelling and will see how it goes over the next day or two. I anm due to see Osteopath on Wednesday and depending on what she says I may have to see Dave Adler or get to the docs for a referral to specialist again. I need this sorted quickly now!!!!!!!!
Very well done Fran, your achievements are as always enviable and you play down your obvious talent. I watched with awe the S4C highlights show last night and would not attempt that race.
Sorry about your knee SEEJAY, hope it improves soon.
Hi Nessie, we both have some catching up to do.
LBB, very well put about Ffran, couldn't agree more, so modest about her achievements!!!! How are you these days, I see your cough has been playing up again!!!!
Ffran, thanks for the good wishes, I don't want to go back to hospital but if that's what it takes then so be it. At the moment the gel is making it not so uncomfortable but the swelling is still there, I am still hopeful it is muscular rather than cartilage, will see what Osteopath says on Wednesday!! I cant understand though why anyone would want to climb Snowdon a few days after running a Marathon!!!!!! Mental woman but so impressed!!!!!
Nessie, thanks for the good wishes, I will try to be sensible and set a good example to you all!!!!
I still havent decided about Llanelli yet as I am not running, I would love to do it as part of my marathon training but dont want to enter and find I cant run it!!!!!
Unfortunately the cough has come back with avengance, meaning I cant run at the pace I want to and also preventing any significant distance. I am still hoping to do Benidorm Half end November though.
Mrs LBB is running London and after being on a bit of a downer due to stress is back on her feet again and making amazing progress. I took her out for 8 on sunday and she ran slowly but very well.
Thanks Ness and well done on your run, are you doing the Christmans Cracker at Weston ?
LBB, sorry to hear that, you have been suffering with this for some time now, shame you cant get it sorted permanently. Hopefully the warmer weather in Benidorm might make it easier for you!! Best of luck with it and at east you are still running!!! Good luck to Mrs LBB, hopefully I will meet you both during training if you are running the cycle path!!
Nessie, shame you had a bad night, was it your IBS again??
I just got my outfit for Cracker, a group of us from the club are running as Elfs, need to try it on to see how it fits!!!
Just been trawling back through the posts since my last visit and it looks like there have been mixed fortunes. We didn't manage a run last week, due to many reasons, but got out last night. I managed 3½ miles with no problems whatsoever, my better half however ran 3 miles, but her hip is playing up again. I think it's bursitis,but I do think we may need to see a sports physio to get a professional opinion.
Hoping to both run again tomorrow and see how things are.
Chris, glad you had a good run, seems its only the odd one you get to enjoy!!!!! I hope, mrs Chris gets sorted. If I remember you dont live in Bristol which is a shame as I know an excellant sports physio, he comes highly recommended by me and LBB!!!!
Well I have just been to the docs and she has diagnosed fluid on the knee and prescribed anti-inflammatories so fingers crossed they sort the problem!!!!! What a miserable night tonight, wrap up warm its like winter out there!!!!
Hi SeeJay.......Well I ran again last night, and guess what, I really enjoyed it again Ran 4 miles and no problems whatsoever. Mrs Chris, or Lisa, as she prefers to be called decided to rest, but says her hip feels better. She plans on running 4 miles on Sunday and we'll see how she is after that. We live out in Hallatrow (not sure if you know the area) but if necessary we'll find a sports physio,
Sorry to hear about your knee, but I'm afraid these injuries do flare up from time to time. I can't really remember the last sustained injury-free period I had, but I remain thankful that I can still run. Have a good weekend everyone
