all good cheers Bus. Foot seems fully recovered and after a cautious week, my gait seems to be back to normal too. Should be up to 21 miles this week.
Sorry to hear you're still suffering. As others have said, I wouldn't run if I were you. Can you get access to a cross trainer? I found it a great way of keeping fit when i had that groin/abductor injury earlier in the year.
Dean - great reply. Last night I managed my second run this week after no running at all for 10 weeks whilst this stress fracture healed. It was part of an Inter Advertising 5km in Regents Park.
On a good day and when fit, I would have comfortably podium'd but obv not in this current shape. And do you know what - after a disastrous 2014 running wise, last night reminded me why I run. It was so much fun even if I did barely break 22 minutes. I'll be back chasing PBs again one day but for now, I'm going to Find Fun.
Haha... thanks Matt. First time on here more or less in the last month so apologies for not knowing what everyone's been up to! Don't have the time to read a month's worth of posts but I did see Dachs' 5k on FB - a well deserved 15:xx. Well done mate.
as for me, I haven't really ran since the duathlon on 27 June. Not sure if it's extensor tendonitis or a stress fracture in my left foot but either way, I've been limping since then and only really been able to put weight on it since last week, as long as I'm wearing cushioned shoes. Hopping or running though are out the question and I've written of the rest of the summer.
Still, the lack of ability to train means I've been working on my drinking ability which I must say, is going from strength to strength!
