..and I'm going to hide your running shoes
Are you able to cycle or does that hurt too?
thanks, i'll let you know regarding pacing once i've done the first long run. it's the 15km+ ones that have been leaving me fatigued due to pace.
actually quite looking forward to my tempo runs, get a bit of speed going. lol...
well 10 miler in great windsor park on sunday.. love that place.. then gentle cross train on bike and x trainer yesterday because my little mare kicked me in the back of my thigh.. very sore, not sure running is an option yet as limping a bit still!
Slowkoala the garmin is going to be a game changer and a real eye opener for you I am guessing
Bootsie - ouch sounds painful!
she's not quite there yet, had a fright this morning. She has had her bandages taken off yesterday for the first time and then, while walking her out in hand, she turned and kicked me, landing me off my feet and took off.. small gallop and then stopped (it hurt i'm guessing! my tough running thighs!) then brought her back into her stable. This morning her leg was very swollen but i think its a combo of too much too soon and her having her bandges off. We (myself and vet) decided its better for her to be turned out to the field now full time because she is stressing and kicking out too much in the stable at this stage and could do more damage so its kind of nerve wrecking, just hoping it all heals now as it should!
so thing is.. is there a risk of me doing any damage doing intervals tomorrow with a very swollen hamstring from a kick?!?!
doesn't sound like a particularly smart idea.
Naughty Horse! I really don't miss those days Bootsie! If you are limping still then I wouldn't run.
bootsie - ask them to shove up on the injury bench, I think you should let that painful kick your mare gave you heal before you do anything.
Slowkoala - congrats on the present buying of your Garmin for yourself
I actually really enjoy these interval sessions now. but there is a free lunch on at the same time so maybe I can cheer myself up with that! must put the mince pies down though!
whos running on christmas day then?
probably. i've got a long run on sunday morning (followed by several hours in the pub watching the footie. hey, i'm replacing vital carbs, ok! lol...). so no run on xmas eve. and we're travelling up north on boxing day, so that'll be out. so if i don't want to miss a run, then yes, i'll probably be seen running through the local lanes with a santa hat on.
I think a 10km on christmas morning will be great for me
((bootsie)) & ((horse)). Reminds me of when my son tried to push his pony into the horsebox. Ended up flying across the grass with a hoof print on his thigh .
No appointments at the docs until Jan 2nd, so went to Minor Injuries Unit at local community hospital. Had x ray on heel and no stress fracture. Thought it might be inflammation due to PF, although I don't have classic symptom of not being able to walk in the morning and I don't have any stiffness. Suggested continue with 'gentle' running, so might try a 'gentle' run tomorrow.
I too will be running Xmas day, great time to run, the roads are so quiet.
mowzer - well that's good news that it's not a SF (it would show on Xray now cos you did it some time ago). Maybe a damaged tendon.
Do they know what 'gentle exercise' may mean in your book.....a marathon!
Lots of rain today again, splashed my way through the puddles, lovely and mild.
Get my turkey today from work
mowser. good news but take it easy!
chucking it down here today.. poor little horse is out in the field in the rain with little shelter bless! lots of hay for her
no intervals today for me so will just relax until I fly home tonight and then nice relaxing runs in ireland over the next few days!
And what shall we call the Turkey this year?I got presented with my throphy last night. A beautiful engraved vase. I'll bring it tonight to Kettles
Mowser - Good for you for going to get your injury looked at.Be careful though. Do you know what 'gentle exercise' is?
I got drenched last night on our club session. It was a mixed bag of Fartleks, chains and hill running up 'The hill of Doom' Powderham. It was fun. Where were you Big G ?
