Hello, hello, hello, here I am. No TS no secret training being going on! I have had a touch of plantar fasciitis. I think brought on a couple of weeks ago when staying at my daughters. I got cramp in my left calf, had big problems fighting off her much larger and heavier duvet and jumping down from a very high bed! Then later that morning on a very tight calf muscle I walked about 2 miles to the station in some ankle boots which are much flatter than I morning wear. Anyway, I tottered around in some stacked boots for 4 days, taking the weight off the area affected and stretched my calf muscle big time.
After 10 days with no running I went out on Monday and ran with no pain in my foot, a very high HR, then again today slower with a lower HR. But I will now take a couple of days off running, I don't want to push things.
I have also just started to do my kettle bell routine. Only very short sessions, but can report that today that everywhere in my body is aching very nicely!!!!
You crazy, wonderful lady. You obviously gritted your teeth and went for it. Blue vomit
Great work being done by you.
I trust that your mileage for your run has been increased with no detriment to your knee. I am always suspicious about squats too, they are meant to be very good for runners but I am not so sure. All best to M for Saturday, you too.
Great family outing at the S London park race. The day you marshalled was very cold here down in the SE. But your afters were a good incentive.
It does sound more hopeful again that it won't be long before you ar running again I giggled at your description of your resembling yourself to D Quixote!!
Ummm, not the best news about your back flaring up again, but it seems that you have it under control again. Thanks for your comment about my improved pace. With reference to training to schedules. I can assure you that when I was at my best I most certainly did follow a programme courtesy of TS.
I hadn't run for 3 days for various reasons, like not having the time! So decided that it had better be a speedy one again this morning.
I ran 2 miles in 17:56 mins, av pace 8.58 mm, av HR 127. Quite pleased with that one even though there was more down than up. I didn't push it. Then I gently ran/walked 2.5 miles home.
A great concert with Sir Richard Stilgoe, such a lovely, very talented, generous guy. The apprentices (as they are called) from The Orpheus Centre were such special people with wonderful musical talents thrown in. There was a variety of special needs but the ethos of the school is that anything is possible and they showed us that this is the case. I felt very privileged to be on stage with them.
