Keeping our group together
Hi everyone, well i got a surprise text from my Osteopath on Thursday, she suggested that I might want to see another osteopath to get another view on my problem. I suggested another guy in her practice who is great at diagnosis and she agreed. I will see him on Monday, not holding out a lot of hope but just maybe he can find something she has overlooked that will sort my problem. Fingers are crossed anyway.
Kev, good to hear you are out and about again even in this rubbish weather!!!
Chris, I have done Lliswerry a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it, good flat race and very friendly, pity they dont seem to get much support from the council with regards a headquarters!!!! Anyway, I will let you know soon if I will run it but will probably be entry on the day and will be with a few other Southville runners!!! Fingers crossed your present form keeps up, you deserve a good year!!!!
Ffran, I have done the same sometimes, spent ages writing a post only for the computer to loose every word so I just log off and walk away in a huff!!! I dont find teetotal a problem as I need my licence and cant afford to loose it so if I am drinking I am not driving. Also I dont run well with a hangover anyway. Sounds like you are bouncing and it wont take long to be back on form!!! Well done!!!
Toby, you are doing really well considering you are not well, lets hope it doesnt catch up with you later. Well done to Mrs Toby.
Plan for tomorrow morning is 8 miles at between 11 and 10:30 pace so will see how that goes and let you know. Good luck to everyone running tomorrow.
8.43 miles in 1hr 23 mins, met a friend from the club just after I started running and she ran with me, pushed me faster than I intended but thoroughly enjoyed the run. Hopefully not too much pain tomorrow but if so at least Osteopath can see where the problem is!!!!
Nessie, it was good to have someone push me a little, hopefully it has done me good!!!! Well done on your run, sounds like a challenging route and I know how much you hate hills!!!!! Good luck with your diet, I ned to get back into mine, just got those 4 pounds I put on over Xmas to loose!!!!
Thanks Kev, glad you got your car sorted!!!!!
SeeJay, good running mate, but I agree with Nessie, don't push the pace.....That's what you keep telling the rest of us Hope you get your knee sorted.
Nessie, good running too, well done
On the running front, I managed two runs over the weekend 6.01 miles on Saturday in 55:20. It was very wet and windy, plus I had to make an enforced detour due to a road which was flooded and impassable. Had to run a trail covered in mud, so my pristine new running shoes are no longer pristine! Yesterday, I ran with my wife and two friends, this was a steady recovery run for me, 3.07 miles in 33:37. Knee played up a little yesterday, but I'm working on it ........Bonus, I lost 3lbs last week as well. Hoping to lose another 10lbs before Bath. Planned run of about 4 miles tomorrow.
Hope you're all good!
went to weight watchers this morning and glad to report back on track lost another 3lb putting me at 11st 04lbs a total of 2st 3lbs since i joined have been set a goal weight of 10st 13bls by the lady running it so just another 5bls to go
When i got home went out for an 8 mile run the time on the Garmin was 1:17:29 but that with having to stop and mess about with my iPod when you look at the moving time it shows 1:14:44 which is 2 minutes faster than last week so really pleased
just 5 for me yesterday made i nice change not to be running in the rain the sun was out but still very nippy in the shade may do a recovery run on the treadmill today as i have the 20 i didn't last week on Friday
Morning everyone, good running all of you
Ffran, no, my wife is happy just to be out 3 times a week running approximately 3-4 miles each time. She has suffered with her hip recently and doesn't want to aggravate that with too much running.
I managed 4.18 miles last night. Slight change of route, as we had some new runners joining us last night, so a shorter route, but plenty of doubling-back made up the distance. Planned runs of 5 miles tomorrow and 7 miles on Saturday, snow permitting!
Have a good day all of you, whatever you get up to!
OMG, you guys have been busy posting!!! The Osteopath told me that I dont have one major thing wrong but lots of little things. When I stretch I have to remember that muscles go around my calf and hamstring and so on, they dont just pull straight. So when I stretch I need to carefully turn my foot to stretch other parts of the group, the same with all the muscle groups. I think it is making a difference. With regards my pace, the average wasnt that much quicker than usual it was just we ran all the way and I have had no ill effects from it so all is good. I am actually finding that when I run faster it is more comfortable than trying to run at the much slower pace. Anyway I have sent my entry off for Lliswerry and I am also in for Longleat and will see how my knee copes with them!! Chris, hopefully we will meet at Lliswerry then????
Chris, well done on the weight loss, its always good to loose a few after Xmas!!!! Good running, I hope your knee isnt going to start playing up again after all the hard work you have done!!
Nessie, dont worry about putting it on again, it can sometimes happen. The drink will definately put the weight on unless you are counting it if you are doing weightwatchers. Be positive, it will take a little time to get into it.
Toby, well done with the diet and the running, how long now until your race??
Kev, sounds like a busy running schedule for you, good luck.
