But what if I'm having a fat moment too? Like, having to weight bear extra Xmas poundage thus putting extra stress on said Achilles. Sounds good to me.
Thanks for the tips PSC, I'm on it
and be carefull swimming that you don't push off with the bad foot as that will annoy the achillies
Ah! Now that is helpful indeed, cheers Seren. It was rather niggly in the pool today, so good advice. I think I may just use the excuse to faff about at the end of the lane before meandering gently forward for the next lap.
Serious calf/soleus tightness though...Going to add heel raises to my programme and have been foam rolling like mad.
*joins fat feeling club*
at least none of us will feel cold on the swim
Scuse me buttin in ... heel drop for an achiiles and not heel raises, you will overload it Stand on a stair and drop the 'bad' heel down, bring it up again by taking the weight with the other foot
what is that bright thing in the sky......?
I have no idea but it's scaring me!
It was gorgeous out there... and I saw 3 other runners enjoying it too, on a route that I normally don't see anyone on. 12 miles done and dusted with a grin on my face all the way.......
MORNING BUDDING OUTLAWS
Mornin' to you too PSC. Although I think it's no longer morning.
I am choked with cold again . I'm so bloody annoyed, as I ran on Wednesday, felt great and really enjoyed it. Been downhill since...........Also, since it's Hogmanay tomorrow and my birthday on the 5th, I am expecting precisely nothing of myself until the 7th. Pleeeeenty of time to get Outlaw fit
Oh yeah... it was past the top of the clock.
Colds should be banned... Vit C is prescribed. Oh hang on, you're the Nurse!!
Vit C, you say?
I was thinking more along the lines of Bowmore
Mulled wine always good... Vapors clear the sinuses!
Is that a professional recommendation missus ?
Anyone doing the Half Outlaw ?
