Sarah - 12 miles slow would have been better for the old aerobic engine though.....

Do a nice and slow 6 tomorrow for recovery

Hello, sorry guys, haven't been around for a bit cos I've got the lurgy and toothache too and I've been feeling quite sorry for myself in the way only a poorly man can. Haven't run since last Friday

DD, such a shame about you getting the man flu before your HM - you have been in such great form in training I'm sure you would have been on for something really quick - but well done in the circumstances.

Welcome Sarah and good luck! Oh, and you'll soon realise that Spoons is obsessed with trying to get people to run more slowly. I think it makes him feel better about himself  

Work Xmas do tonight. Still feeling rough but I'm going to force myself along for a couple...

SBC opps, i did think with me only doing 12 miles that would be ok.....now i might be learning whats been going wrong/or not so well over the last few years!

Brolish thankyou, its reassuring that you all think 22 was ok, will schedule it in for this time round and anything else that people recommend.

Spoons think that must be another one of my weaknessess, i find it really difficult to go slow, although when I go with others I do tend to run about a min per mile slower than my natural pace. Will have to see if my OH fancies a gentle jog in the morning. I came to the conclusion that a park run tomorrow morning would be a bad idea after the last two days.

Hi DarenF, thankyou

Oompa- As Mr Z says, you'd be pretty unluckily to get PF in both feet, and also so suddenly. Normally it builds up slowly and usually just the heels. Tinggling sensation is normally due some kind of restriction, ie laces too tight cuasing blood flow restriction. No idea re the ITB. Maybe AA can help, as she's done the course re applying K-tape. Hope you get it sorted.

 5 miles on TM for me last night and it was awful. 1st mile @ 8.00 min/ml, 2nd mile @ 7.00 min/ml then had to jog/walk the next mile as i had a strange tingling/ache right along the length of both feet coupled with aching left ITB??? Managed to get "back in the saddle" so to speak and did the last 2 miles @ 8.00 min/ml pace but it was far from easy.

Of course it wasn't easy!  You're trying to get back from injury and every time you  run you're getting aches and pains.  You have to SLOW down!  That is too fast!  Neither wonder you're getting pains.  Honestly, slow right down and test everything out and only start to introduce a bit of speed when you're sure everything is ok.  Even if it does take weeks.

What is it with men that they have to always go so fast?!!

DD and others,  Sarah is a GP. (*whispers* perfect ! exactly what we need on this thread). So perhaps she can help out with the manflu that affects so many.  Maybe she has a vaccination......

Hahaha, thanks minni, the cats out of the bag now....had better start reading up on sport injuries! Man flu.... well thats a special illness, despite the high prevalence, we just haven't got to the bottom of why it only incapacitates men making them bed ridden with no real signs of illness!

I agree with minni HHH, I've only been running a couple of years but coming back from injury and running 7min/ml sounds a recipe for disaster! I don't do any speed training if I have any or have just recovered from any twinges.

Like Simon says though it could be something as simple as tight shoes (fingers crossed), it's happened to be once when I had my laces far to tight. Seemed to be worse on inclines!

Hope your next run is more successful

Sarah - what Daren forgets is his current speed is on the back of 6 months of slow HADD training.

Sarah - So Dr. while you're here, I've got this nasty rash on my balearics! He he

Minni - We have to run fast to try and keep up with you fast ladies.
07/12/2012 at 21:40
HADD training? What does that stand for, I'm still learning all the running jargon?
07/12/2012 at 21:44
Anyone fancy a forum outing to an ACDC concert?
07/12/2012 at 21:59
Simon, if you put a photo up, I will have a look and see if I can help!
07/12/2012 at 21:59
Minni - Have you just been watching them live in Rio on BBC4. I took my OH to see them in conncert on one of our first dates 20yrs ago, awesome, and now they're on iTunes too. For those about to rock we salute you.

Sarah - I don't think I can compress that much to fit on here lol.
07/12/2012 at 22:12
Yes Simon - brilliant. I've hot it on iPod and just added the DVD to my Christmas list. Ideal for the TM.
07/12/2012 at 22:28
Hahaha, I've been having difficult compressing all my photos, even the small ones!

Sarah - HADD training is basically training the aerobic engine by running slowly. Distance running is about building fitness, strength, stamina. Pure speed is only the last 10% and is pretty useless on it's own. It's easy to train to run 400m fast. Not so easy to hold that pace for miles.

07/12/2012 at 22:58
Thank you, that does make sense, I'm taking notes.
08/12/2012 at 00:09
Minni - There seems to be talk of a 40th anniversary tour in 2013 but no official dates. I could only find some tribute bands. Watching again on my OH's ipad. Now where's my school uniform!
