Hope all injuries clear up soon. Red, Minni good to hear things sound promising for you. Oompa, take things easy or at least easier! Barry, when I hurt my foot it went on so long that I ended up getting it x-rayed, but soon after that it suddenly got much better. Hope you see some improvement soon. Kiwi, v frustrating. Strength exercises sound promising for cracking the problems for good
3 miles for me this evening. Enjoying running again now that I'm allowed to go just a bit further.
I posted to congratulate O4S on her bonkers but amazingly inspiring 100m and my rubbish internet connection lost it, grrrr. Definitely yes to a book, I've read running books far less interesting than your posts.
Minni, hope the injury heals soon. Same to Red, Oompa and 2Old, don't push it too much trying to get back too quickly all of you. The speed will come back with time.
Bro, I was at the Tower of London over the weekend. The moat can't have been that easy to run in. I like to imagine though what some of those historical figures from the days when women had to wear long dresses and ride side saddle would think if they could see us all running round. That time's also faster than my PB even if not quite what you were hoping for.
Congratulations O4S. Looking forward to the report later.
Well done on the swim Spoons.
Minni, hope the calf gets sorted soon.
Red, good news on the achilles. I've got some orthotics and I wasn't that impressed with the pod who did them but I do think they help me.
SS, I think I missed you from my marathon well dones . I knew I was bound to miss someone... You were another one who showed what's possible coming back from an injury. You also had some spectacular ups and downs along the way, but that's helpful to all of us in understanding that not all runs are going to be great. I think you've got plenty more PBs ahead of you given with some injury free consistent running. Also, no need to feel like a fraud with feeling great. It shows you paced it well
3:30, I'm a bit behind you on the training since I've had a bit gap due to an injury and I'm having to build back up again painfully slowly, so can understand where you're coming from in terms of not wanting to enter a marathon yet. I think it's worth entering something though as having a shorter race planned is helping my motivation no end.
About 50 miles cycled last week (although no longer than about 6-7 miles in a go), 2x25 min runs plus some yoga and weights. That feels about the limit of what I can do at the moment since on the second run my legs felt heavy and my calf was tight, although partly due to badly scheduled rest days. Another 25 min run today which felt better.
