T-Rex - It's ok I know it's the right thing to do I'm barely plodding thru 2 - 3 miles at the moment - then again now I've done the deal i'll probably make a miracle recovery
LG - yes TMW is out too I'm going to sort something out with Matt hopefully as I have a hoody attached to my entry I still want. I will be there though out on the course marshalling somewhere.
We have a sports massage person starting to work out of CyB so I'm trying to get an appointment with her asap seen as I need to wait 2-3 months for the NHS so hopefully fingers crossed I can build gently to Trailffest half in September it would be nice to manage one of the races I'm booked to do
legend777 - just tried to inbox you but it wouldn't let me - I'm pulling out
Sorry guys but even if my leg recovers in the next couple of weeks I'm not going to risk pushing it to marathon level so soon, I also have a place in Run to the Castle Ultra if anyone is interested.
On a happier note spent Saturday running a checkpoint at Ras y Gader had a great day and on Sunday Mr C got another new half pb 2hrs 10 mins at Chester. Spectating is blinking hard work I was exhausted after
Well on Saturday I tried a 2.25 mile flat (quite hard to do around here) run/walk with lots of extra stops to grab dogs for bikes/other dog walkers panicking etc and it was ok no pain during (though my breathing was atrocious) and ok after plenty of stretching and rolling after. Went off road for a walk yesterday at CyB (only about 3 miles) and by the end I could feel it pulling a bit so looks like off road and hills still a while off to run. Going to try the 2.25 miles again tonight but without dogs so hopefully will be able to get a bit more of a rhythym going.
LG - still waiting for appointment. Hoping i'll be able to plod around the TMW half at least but if not i'll be marshalling so still a part of it all
I took the dogs for a walk last night while Mr C went off for the CyB group run, slightly under estimated the distance my loop was and ended up power walking up the hill to get back in time - actually worked well as I met the first runners as they popped out of Sting In The Tail and by the time they'd all regrouped I was only 1/2 mile off the end. Of course that was when Mr C passed me and the dogs abandoned mum to run off with dad charming.
Bit achy this morning but no pain so fingers crossed things are on the mend.
