Sorry to hear about the knee. Are you having to rest, or do you have some exercises to do with it? Any idea when you will be able to start running again? You had made such good progress lately.

All the best for the knee David

((((DF's knee))))

Take care Hipps and good luck in 2 weeks. Where is it?

I was talking to a guy at IOW who's doing GUC (142?) in a few weeks!

WS - have just read your report, brilliant.
23/05/2006 at 10:55
Cheers Shades - lovely to meet you!

WS - I expect we'll meet again soon, I am a feeling you may be running quite a few more marathons...fairly soon too!

How did you get on with the Physio - any good news to report?
24/05/2006 at 16:21 sure if it is good...

tendons around and at side of knee are inflamed...also upper leg muscles...going back on Thursday

Brian (Physio) also ponted out that one of the hamstring muscles had been very badly damaged in the past (it was playing football around 4 years ago). and that there was still quite a large hole/lump associated with it. He felt that I had actually done quite well doing the training I have been doing with it.

He says that it cannot be repaired but that, once inflamation has settled down, strength work will improve the performance of the left hamstring.

Actually, when he pointed this out, I remembered that I had a twinge in that hamstring during the monklands half (3 weeks ago, but managed to run through it. However, it was after that, that I started to get problems around my left knee.

Right now I am limping and left knee is occassionally popping (think it is the inflamed tendon sheath).

Still trying to be positive though and hopeful that inflamation will reduce soon so I can get back to some easy running.

Sorry for such a long - and depressing - reposnse.

How are you getting on. BT still improving your pace?

However....on a more positive note...I finished 12th in the Pitencrieff 5k in a time of 20.22..

Although that is not very fast..and training has indicated that I should be able to run sub 20, the course was very fact almost entirely made up of small I was quite pleased with performance..

It may well be my last race for a while....meant to be running the Dumbarton 10k a week tomorrow...given that I can barely walk today, that seems unlikely....still, nothing like blind hope... ;-)

DF - what do you mean 'that is not very fast' - when you've never run a 5K sub 30 mins, then your time is hellishly fast! Sorry to hear about your knee - be sensible, do as the physio says then when you can, do lots of strengthening work. good luck

Hipps - congratulations on the IOW - read your report - doesn't sound like you enjoyed it too much though. Chin up!

Did just under 4 miles yesterday and again enjoyed it (and not just when I'd finished either) - bit spooky this!

Should have been yoga tonight but got held up in traffic so ended up doing pilates instead - much prefer the yoga.
24/05/2006 at 21:57
i am still going
3 2 milers in 3 days legs just getting back to normal


take care
Susie J-good stuff
