Feeling really good now but resisting the temptation

Morning Soph

Able to get into and out of the bath without going into contortions. Coughing is possible (try not coughing for two weeks)

Now it feels as though there is a band across the right side of my chest which presses when I breath deeply.

The Doc said no running until it is comfortable to breathe.

Bonsoir Eddy,

I think your doc is right... anyway I don't think I could bring enough tissues with me for a run!
and now there were 2.
2 runners not running.
Thank you forum to be here for us!

See you tomorrow?

Bonsoir Soph

Sorry about your cold, awful aren't they. At least I don't feel ill.

So, which bit of France are you from?

My chest just feels bruised now but I know I must not be tempted. I am eating less now to avoid being too podgy.

If you can cough, you'll be OK to run.

I will give it a go on Sunday. Mrs S has got me plenty of jobs that have built up over the last couple of weeks.

Hi Eddy,

If Mrs Steady find this thread you'll probably get an even longgeerr list of jobs to do... LOL

See you later.

Bonjour Soph, ca va? (kiss both sides of face)

I am going for 20 miles today (on bike) just to get back into things, I think running will wait for another week.

I can actually function now without the constant ache from my chest.

In fact my hangover feels worse, too much vin rouge last night!

Glad you are feeling better.

I know I had put this to bed but I thought you would all like to know I am going for a run on Sunday. I still have an ache in the location of the injury but am ready to resume.

I will do a 6 miler.

Well, I supposed it had to happen one day. Good Luck with that. See how you get on and take it from there.

I ran 4 miles today with no probs. So the recovery period is 5 weeks from bus to running again. I must avoid buses.
