Hi Wabo, be careful of that ankle, we don't want you hogging the bench for to long.

Well, I have my running stuff but may only crawl to gym and do stuff there. It's just that I see the weeks going by and schedule not happening, sob sniff sob.
I will be careful CA, besides the bench is a bit hard!

On a serious note though, I am so fed up! I hate not running!!!!!

Hi all.
I'm in the FLM, first time. I started stepping up my mileage first week in January then strained the ligaments in my ankle. I saw a specialist last Friday and she reckons that after a couple of treatment sessions I will be still ok for the FLM. I'm not running at the mo but hopefully will be in a week or so. I hoped for 4 hrs or under, given the fact that my training has been disrupted am I being over ambitious with this time?

cheers

Welcome bushbaby. For all of us FLM time is directly related to both the quantity(mileage) and quality (speed and hill sessions) that we are doing in training.

If you were training well before your injury then you should be able to pick it up again without too much trouble.

Check out the RW marathon schedules for a sub4 marathon....

Hi Bushbaby, a lot will depend on how quickly you start training again & what level you were at before you injury.

One of the most important things to remember is not to push to hard when you return to training, with 11 or so weeks to go you still have enough time to do the work you need to achieve your goal.

Welcome to our thread.

Bushbaby, I reckon you're being ambitious but not overly so. If you were on schedule before the injury then I think you can get back on it.

But don't make the injury worse by running on it while it's hurting (says the guy who's ignoring the torn knee cartilage...) - and if you've got a ballot place then you can defer and spend a year building up to the race - in which case you can be really ready for the 26.2.

In any case there's a seat on a training bench here for you (but it sounds like you might want to bring a cushion).

Percy, do you intend to run with anyone at Hastings? As we will be looking for a similar time I will be more than happy to run together which my help us both with pacing.

CA....yes, definitely. I was going to suggest a meet up anyway. How're you going to get down there? I haven't decided yet on driving down or the train.
04/02/2004 at 11:45
Thanks all 3 of you, good advice. Prior to hurting my foot I was putting in about 24 miles a week, usually with a 7 miler on Tuesday and Thursday and then 10 or so on Sundays.

Does anyone know what the cut-off date is for deferral (worst case scenario)???
04/02/2004 at 11:51
I think the cut off date is April 18th itself. But I'd make sure you send it with some sort of proof of posting at least the day before...
04/02/2004 at 11:55
excellent - cheers benicetome. That's good news
04/02/2004 at 11:56
Percy, will more than likely go by car. Are you doing Richmond Park on the 29th Feb? we could arrange to meet up then.

CA
04/02/2004 at 12:01
CA, good plan. I'm in the 8:30 m/m pace group for RP....should be ok as long as I can get a decent Feb's training in....with no more niggles.
04/02/2004 at 17:36
hello all, and bushbaby.
decided to lay off the knee tonight. want to make sure it is 100% before my RP 2-lapper sunday.

i needed to write it down.

Bloomin' windy out there today - felt like the lap of Bushy Park was twice as far and not even half as much fun as normal.

Sorry to hear you are still on injury bench wishing you a speedie recovery I know all about ITB and the pain it inflicts but since my physio treatment On Monday(was my back out of alignment that was causing all the problems)I am fine and tested long run of 3hr.30 today and first time in 3 months of no pain at all!!!

So I vacate my place on injury bench!
04/02/2004 at 17:43
I agree benicetome it was not pleasant out there today very tough and not a lot of fun!!!But i guess that is what marathon training is about!!
04/02/2004 at 18:19
Poppy, Thanks for the best wishes and I'm glad to hear that you're finally pain-free.
How far was your 3hr 30 run?

I'm (somewhat desperately) hoping that a combination of physio, massage and strapping - the good kind - will let me get out and about again at the weekend. The number of days to go seems to be shrinking quite rapidly at the moment.

Ah well, I'm sure that it will make my 3h 45 on the day seem all the more impressive... :-)
