Ric, am sure you'll take the right steps to get yourself right. Take it easy.
When i look back over the last 5 years of this thread, the amount of doc visits, physio, rehab etc i've gone through, imagine if any of the issues had been serious!! (touching wood this current thing isn't!)
Matt - not even thinking of races for the forseeable, there's one fun thing i want to be part of soon that I'm seriously running out of time for. I usually make the sensible call, as after all there's always tonnes of races when you are 100%.
10miler today, ranged between drizzle and very heavy rain in places. I'm finding the simple removal of my vest a few miles in just revitalises me, so although I looked mental shirtless in heavy rain, it felt pretty nice. And obviously this time of year despite it raining, the temp is decent.
will enjoy the rest of the day off now! well, at work, but you know what i mean!
SG I drove past you on your way out of Bourne End the other morning, you had your shirt off and it was literally p*ss*ng down with rain. All the other drivers in the morning traffic were looking across at you as well. Still you looked comfy.
if you haven't alreadylooked try c25k, couch to five km programs. You're a gadget guy so you could program run walk run into a Garmin.
hear what you say about walking, are you using the warmer weather to explore your area? I have been building up after sciatica bout and am running 4 or so miles in about 45 minutes through local trails by running and walking. Lots to see and am enjoying taking in new routes.
im not much lighter than you, it's all about right shoes, resting and taking your time. good luck with yr next event and you have some bottle trying that last one.
