Just checking in quickly to congratulate VT on yet another stunning sub LT and iower on enduring the dreaded 2400m test
Great running on hols, Dr. D
Not so great running here. Buggered my achilles . No idea where that comes from. I never had achilles problems as a runner, only ever as a kid when I did gymnastics. And I'm using my trusted Kinvaras as per usual so it can't be the shoes. I'm hoping that heel raises, stretching, ice and anti-inflams do the trick. This sucks
Just busy ... and .... injured Achilles has started to play up. No idea why. I never had achilles problems as a runner. Only ever in my youth when I was an eager (too eager) gymnast . I hope I can nip this in the bud. Doing lots of heel raises, stretching and anti-inflammatory gel stuff. Fingers crossed today it seems a lot less painful than the other days. I just hope it buggers off again.
Sorry been awol - lots to do at work and even worse: injured . Achilles has started to play up. No idea why. I never had achilles probs as a runner. Only ever as a competitive gymnast in my youth . Guess it must be my turn now. Doing lots of heel raises and using some anti-inflammatories. Hopefully it settles again. It's not that bad but I feel it for the first 10-15 mins of a run. Then it goes away. But comes back again when I stop running. Bah Humbug
Watched the marathon too and enjoyed it. Felt sorry for the Polish guy who made a gutsy surge early on just to crash and burn and DNF....
What: 7.5 blustery miles
Why: stomach issues preventing a proper long run today. No idea what it is but it's immune to Imodium :-/
Last hard: finishing yesterday's MLR
Last rest: Monday
Lyrics: seem familiar but can't place then right now
