Good to hear. I had 2 weeks off running, but turbo'd hard the first week. I couldn't believe that after 1 day I could walk normally first thing. Then after 1 5km run I'm doing the robocop mince straight out of bed. How is this fun?

Thanks for the advice SD and IronCat, will keep resting, taking ibroprufen, stretching and rollering! Fingers crossed it will become bearable

Budgie, if all else fails, I got a deep massage on it with one physio holding me down with the other massaging the band; it hurt like hell and the area was bruised after but since then I've had no problems with it. 

I would do this after the race though!

Well done Sossige ... bit chilly?

Thanks for the advice SumoSue. I'm lucky enough to have a trainee physio in the house, so I'll ask if he can give me one of those.

Well done SD.

Think i'm becoming immune to swimming in cold lakes now Melds, 13 degrees & didnt find it bad at all.

Still cant believe i had to wear a woolly hat to come to work this morning & it's nearly June though

2hrs 42min run this afternoon.

Just realised that my chat has gone from,"I'm doing an ironman next year", to,"I'm doing an ironman in July", to,"I'm doing an ironman next month"  !
