Sorry i've been absent again.I have been very poorly with a bad chest infection.So no running for just over 2 weeks now.I'm hoping to go for a gentle jog tomorrow.I've been really snowed under with college work as well.Only got a month left,so lots of work to get finished and submitted.
AF, Well done on your HM.That's a hard race after your marathon.
Chilli,well done on the success of your Park Run.And well done all the little Chillis with their racing.You must be very proud.
MC, Sorry to hear your bad news.Hope hubby is ok and feeling a bit better about his new job.
Well i had to abandon last night's run after 1/4 of a mile as i felt awful.Today i am full of cold and really struggling.This will be the first time in a month i haven't hit my running targets.At least it is for a proper reason,and not just because i didn't feel like it.I'm lucky enough not to suffer from hayfever,so i know that if i get a snuffle it's a cold.
By 'eck enjoy your noo shooze.
Hope everyone enjoys their day.
Loula, i hope your move has gone smoothly,and when it is all done,you can enjoy a cup of tea and a big slice of cake.If you can remember which box you packed the kettle in.
MC,good news for your hubby.Definately a silver lining to that cloud.
AF hope you are feeling a bit better.
Loula, hope your move goes smoothly.
Well i went out on Monday and did a short pacy run.It felt good to be running properly,not plodding,but i can't sustain that pace over any distances yet.It's just a case of building my lungs and legs stamina over the summer to make me ready to start marathon training.
Today i am full of snuffles and cold,but it is still just my nose that's affected,so i'll go for a run tonight before it gets too bad.It may even scare it off.
Ecky well done on that race so soon after your marathon.And an HM coming up too!! That's really getting back into it.
Lovely bike pics Mr & Mrs Chili.Sounds like you had a lovely time on your Cambridge trip.
Well my good intentions to go out for a run yesterday were scuppered by a migraine.I felt a bit funny on Saturday,and then yesterday lunchtime i started to feel really unwell,so no running for me.I'm a lot better today,so i'll go for a run this evening after work.I've got to keep this running going now.
Well yesterday was very quiet until the evening and then i see mayhem ensued.
Had an awkward moment when my wife thought she saw me looking at pics of semi naked firemen on the net,and i had to explain that you girls liked to post these pics on here.
MC I have a similar issue with my left knee.About 10 years ago it was very painful when i walked upstairs.I was told the kneecap was permanently damaged due to arthritis,and i would always have problems with it.It came about because my leg muscles on this leg are much weaker than my right,due to severe muscle wastage when i spent a year in plaster 28 years ago.This caused arthritis to set in.I saw a podiatrist who addressed my gait problems and i had physio to strengthen my leg muscles.Since then i have not had too many knee problems,despite there still being an imbalance in my leg strength.I didn't start running until a few years later,but my knee has held up since i started 4 years ago,although it gets a bit niggly sometimes.
Going out for my weekend run tomorrow.I'm really looking forward to it.I have to admit in recent months when i ran,which was very infrequently,it was because i felt i should,not because i wanted to.In the past i always looked forward to running,and i'm glad to have that feeling back.
