See you at the XC Lit, we are fielding an old lady team and none of us (especially me) are that good off road. But the main problem is we are a total embarrassment in the flags and tents stakes, all the other clubs seem to have huge gazebos and impressive banners, we'll probably have a bin bag.
Hi Bob! I've been so impressed by your progress, it's amazing how much you've come on in such a short time. After training with Simon last spring I had a big break from structured sessions, it was partly due to illness and then work. So I'm not training with Simon anymore but the experience was really useful.
Hello long time lurker here! Lovely to meet Lit at the Stirling 10k and well done on the team prize, you looked really surprised when the announcement was made. I was very impressed by your co-ordinated headwear, 80s style sweatbands are de rigueur with the menfolk in my club at the moment it's quite a 'look'. (Lit wasn't wearing a sweatband)
Back to lurking now, but wishing those of you who are carrying injuries a return to full strength and congratulations to all the racers.
I had a minor meniscus injury last year and couldn't walk properly for about 2 weeks, the knee was swollen and I couldn't bend it much. I rested completely during this time, the injury happened when cycling rather than running so I avoided the bike. Once the pain had gone (2 weeks) I started running again with no ill effects.
I'm very injury prone so in your situation I would probably rest for a week and see how I felt after that. This year I tore my soleus muscle but continued to run on it (it took a while to get an accurate diagnosis) that ended up taking 12 weeks to heal. Maybe if I'd just taken a week off earlier it might've been better.
