Strangely- the thought of springing a leak is really quite unpleasant :-/
Lily- yeah autumnal running's the best
Me- I was sensible this evening and resisted the temptation of hills for an easy 4 miles. Felt pretty good, took it nice n slow, enjoyed catching up on some Desert Island Discs on the podcast. Stitches seem to be dissolving (no leakage)
Managed 6 miles through the forest this morning, very very slowly but with minimal / no discomfort. So nice to get back to it but must be sensible and take it slowly. Was tempted to do MUCH further but I though 6 was quite enough for now
Tried a very slow and tentative 3 miles last night. Belly wound a bit tender and uncomfortable so I left it at that. Felt quite gutted really cos I wasn't even sweaty or out of breath, and felt keen to go for longer / faster, but the body isn't really up to it unfortunately.Hoping to try again tomorrow
Great running all and hope your injuries aren't too bad swittle
Just had a quick look in, and thanks for all the good wishes for my hernia op. The recovery is going to take a little longer than I hoped for, and the idea that I will be running Pleshey HM next Sunday is frankly ridiculous. I have a 2.5 inch incision healing in my abdomen and today is the first day that I've made it out beyond the end of my road walking. I am guessing that at best I may manage a very gentle jog / walk by next week. I am a bit gutted about missing the Half, as I've made a lot of progress this year and was pretty well ready for a good (PB?) time, but these things happen, and I've been waiting for nearly a year for this op.. All went well for the op, and I was rather flattered to hear myself described by the consultant as an "athlete" as I woke up from the general anaesthetic... My resting heart rate was, apparently very low at around 46 (??)- and the nurse was worried, but apparently this is normal / good for "athletes" like me!?
Some cracking training going on, and well done all- swittle, lily, dank-art, DD, birkie, SB... Hopefully I'll be "back" within the week... I'm missing the running
