I'm in though i'm keeping it a bit quiet at the mo s i don't want to anger the injury gods.
I've been running for 10 years now and Brighton will hopefully be my 8th marathon. When i first started running i was doing lots of additional exercise/classes in the gym so i guess i had a strong core. Ended up getting divorced and having to give up my gym membership due to cash flow problems. Have had a succession of one injury after another after another but now am finally back in the gym and running well (though not back to my previous pace)
Historically every time i try to add in speed sessions i pick up an injury so basically i'm scared of trying and avoid them like the plague. I'd love to become faster but equally i love running and wnt to carry on injury free.
I've actually entered Chester and have just started Hal Higdons 3 run a week programme (I've always done the novice 2) as i think i need to keep up the core work in order to ward of injury. I'm a little worried about only doing 3 runs a week though.
I'm worried i may pick up aninjury so am keeping it quiet re Brighton at least until i'm through Chester. We'll see how it goes.
Has anyone else ever done the 3 runs a week programme?
Hi All I've entered. I'm currently injury free after many months of one injury after another. I've decided to try the Hal Higdon 3 run a week programme so that i can fit in lots of core work too. Has anyone done this programme? it's 24 weeks so starts in just a few weeks.
There are many reasons why an ECG should be 'abnormal' right from something as simple as poor placing of the leads.
You're bound to be worried but try not to look at google, you'll scare yourself. Look at it this way. Most heart problems are very effectively treated these days so if there does turn out to be a problem at least it has been caught and can be treated. Most heart problems do not stop you from exercising. The heart is a muscle and generally it does it good to do a bit of work but don't do aanything until you have a diagnosis
