Hi, thread. I have been lurking and nice to see new faces. Louisev: if you can knock out 10M in 65 mins you are already in sub 90 shape! And if you are Bristol-based, which club do you run for?
Injury seems to be resolving: I still feel a twinge occasionally but I am doing my glute exercises dutifully, which is at least as fun as it sounds, and managed 7M with 12 x strides today so should be ok to toe the line for the 3000m at the Midland League next week and start my track season earlier than usual!
Nice to see how everyone is recovering and welcome to newbies.
Injury is gradually resolving: I still occasionally feel a twinge, but managed 7M with 12 x strides today with no ill effects. Should be able to toe the line for the 3000m at the Midland League next week!
Loving the race reports, especially Dachs'. Shall we have a whip round to buy that photo - largest size possible, naturally - and get it framed? One for the downstairs loo, for sure!
Physio's verdict: I have been revisited by half-arsed running, and as it is the left glute which is just along for the ride, left knee is swinging in too much, and has lead to mild irritation/inflammation of the tendon insertion point. It should resolve quickly, as long as I'm a good girl and do lots and lots and lots of clams and bridges.
Sounds like a tough day, Freemers. You'll be back stronger with a more consistent campaign next time - just let the body recover properly first!
Physio's verdict: left glute is being lazy, and as a consequence left knee is swinging in pretty badly, leading to the tendon getting a bit inflamed at the insertion point. Nothing serious, and I should be able to do short runs from Wednesday.
