i know i should jftu
Have sprained my finger. Hence crap typing.
I know it's pathetic but can't face running even tho I have a race in 2 weeks and would actually love to train. (i.e. legs want to but brain says no)
I just thnk that every jolt on the pavement wd be painful. Anyone any exp of running w hand injuries? Any tips? Treadmill?
Have a few days of RICE, then stop being a wimp if possible.In December I fell and broke wrist in 4 places, arm put in fibreglass cast, took pain killers, went to gym and did walk/run for 20-30 mins, also cycled in gym but couldnot put hand on bars. The doc had agreed this was a sane plan as I have a duathlon in April and sprint tri in May.
Warning, make sure you hold hand away from body enough so you donot catch it against clothing or body as arms swings - it will hurt- I know from experience.
I am now outside running as normal but still having physio on wrist, all is not lost.
thanks that really helps
walk run good idea. it's a hill race and i am fixated on hill reps but perhaps walk run better idea. have static bike at home ccd try that.
will try to go out for a short while tomorrow. guess better some training even if not training in schedule
Go and run and see if its painful. I doubt it will be though.
Thanks all. Went yesterday. It was fine. Hill race is saved.
PS Speedy, you don't sound like a couch potato....
