Speedy - good news that you can continue running. I hated hearing those words "stop running till it heals" i might as well have stopped breathing lol..
Well this week has really been a good week. I have managed to get out twice this week once monday and on wednesday again. was only a 5 miler but it felt really good. I had to keep note of my pace as i have to resist the urge to pick the pace up. I was quite happy to run at around 7min/mile but have to keep it slow till i have built up the strength in my legs again. might do a few mile on the dreadmill tonight just to have a softer landing than the road..Good luck with your long run Tom..
Shades - I was getting a little frustrated with not behind able to get out but I did have the bike trainer so I was able to do some excersise. I was a little tender yesterday but I think it was just general stiffness.. I'll go out today for another meander around the streets and see how I feel..
Evening folks... Well good news. I went out for a wee run this evening and managed 4.3 miles and "touch wood " no pain. I'll take it easy and ease back into it... Plus I've joined a gym today to help with my core strength.. Woohoo..
Barbie - last year i ran a 1:25:18 half PB and later that year went on to run a 2:58 marathon so in my books a 1:24 half should be ok...
Well today was a really good day... I got my running gear on and went out for a gentle run. I ran 4.5 miles completely pain free so it looks like the rest has helped. Now to take things slowly for a couple of weeks and then i can start to rebuild my training..WOOHOO
