Introducing First Timer Craig (aka BoDuke)
Hi Craig, really glad you're feeling a bit better and good decision to take the day off. You've got 7 weeks training in the bag, remember, and this is the first long run you've missed so don't worry too much. Keep glugging down the fluids and resting and you'll be back on track soon.
A hot bath and a bit of gentle stretching can feel quite nice after you've been cooped up for a couple of days I always find.
Craig - so sorry to hear you are poorly, take it easy, hope you feel better today.
mcs - see you have manflu - take care too!
I only managed two 4 mile runs last week and no LSR as I have been away for the weekend. I have a bit of a cold but did 6 slow miles this morning and it was okay!
Bo had to watch a few episodes of Tracey Beaker with my youngest she is ten nearly 11 she watches everyone on the iplayer if she misses them. Used to be a great Fireman Sam fan but I see its been updated now........."everybody knows his bright red van........" lost it here streaming with cold in my lovely posh new office.
Oscarr you are right on the muscle thing my right hammy is enjoying the rest it is always aching.......usually when training is happening. Thinks a day or two off then maybe get the bike out and a swim before I get the trainers on properly again. Feel like a wet lettuce. Serves me right for boasting about wellman vitamins!!
Have a better week Craig!!
Hope you feel better soon Craig - sounds nasty.
and I just spent the last hour catching up with the last 2 weeks of chat on here after a 2 week holiday...spent a week skiing which I think has made my legs a bit stronger...though maybe all in my head but 12 miler yesterday felt surprisingly ok. Sore left ankle today though so I'm currently sat with feet up covered in a bag of frozen peas...hoping it's ok.
Oh and I had a sports massage last week for the first time which was...interesting. The physio also recommended a roller to stretch muscles so may give it a go - saw someone earlier mention them.
Sam - re yoga - I have a yoga DVD on the way from amazon so will give it a go later this week...haven't done yoga since Uni (which was 12 yrs ago).
Anyway...get well soon Craig, and you too mcs.
Hope you're on the mend Craig - and you too mcs. I guess at least illness has more of a limited timespan than do injuries...
Good work on the yoga DVD, Louisa - remember to start conservatively though! Nothing too full-on if it's been a while since you did it.
Just back from a five miler, week two of the RUNNERS WORLD ULTIMATE MARATHON SCHEDULE......oops sorry that doesn't need to be in caps eating a butty at the same time as typing.........feeling better thankfully though rather bunged up in the head. Good to be out there with the trainers on couldn't be bothered to get out the bike in this colder weather.
Glad I didn't go to Paris for the rugby!!! Wow some seriously annoyed Brits over there I would imagine!! Dont think England will stand a chance against France and Wales.
Well done on the miles Louisa lucky you a week skiing, keep at it.
Life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards!!
Yay - glad everyone is back in action
Louisa you must have been reading my mind - I've been thinking about doing the same - which dvd did you order?
Yay that's good news re getting out for run today Craig!
SB - I went for the Yogalosophy one by Mandy Ingber ...yes I was won over by the fact some famous and very svelt women like Jennifer Aniston follow it...but also came with good reviews on Amazon. We'll see how it goes. Several of my friends who are into triathlon do yoga and or pilates and swear by it for keeping things more balanced and injury free.
Right - back to work for me also...boooo
And he's back in the game! Good work Craig! And everyone else, too.
Was SO nice to see some grass today and not boring old slush and snow. I think I can even smell spring!
