BI, you are a serious planner. I like your style. PMJ does too (I'm betting). Good luck on the next build.
Leslie, wow. But just remember, in some cases less is more. Here's to unimpinged running moving forward. Good luck on 1 foot (and really no hands as they are stuck on the crutches). I was in your condition one brutal winter when I lived in Fargo (yes, I have lived in the coldest places in the US!). Took a nasty spill on the ice while still feeling the anesthesia...luckily didn't feel a thing as I was so high still.
Abbers, when I was coming back from ITB injury, I would go out and get to a point where I could feel it start to tighten up. It was OK in my case to do this. Just remember to shut down before it starts to actually have that ice pick into knee feel. I think it's good progress.
I continue to test the waters. Runs of 12 and 8 the past two days. Little flare up on near the end of the 12, but no issues today. Trying to tread lightly. Now that I can get 10-12 miles in, no need to go further and I can maybe settle into 40ish mile weeks w/out exacerbating things. It would be good to keep that up while finishing the strengthening/healing stuff.
BI, beast! Well toughed out. I'd love to see a pic of that blister (probably SJ too) but will refrain for the dignity of the thread! A hard day at the office and you still got the job done beautifully. I think you can easily fill out the dance card, but think you should be thinking sub3:20 too.
OO, I'm always so impressed with your wheels. Great performance into the wind. Enjoy the short fast stuff to close out the year.
Fishy, hope you had a nice race too.
I have been doing core PT the past 10 days (every day, no matter what). Wow, what a difference. Managed 6M wed, 9M thurs, 11M Sat, and 5M today. The past 2 runs have been virtually pain free. Can't remember the last time I ran w/out pain (what a beautiful thing). Not fully there yet, but think if I keep this up and go slowly still I'll get over the hump.
GM, you can guide recovery by HR. Will keep you from going to fast on all you runs. Sub70% of Max should do.
SJ, I like those goals. May all of you hold up to get there! 90% of the battle these days.
Leslie, you are in a tough spot. I hope the surgeon can get you running again.
No running the past 2 days and am contemplating another day off. If I took a month off maybe my niggles would heal. But I can't resist getting out there for more than a couple days at a time. But this stretch of light running has been good for the soul.
Abbers, we all push when things like this come up. Many times you find it was fine to do so. I'd say as long as you rest now you'll bounce back fast. One run too many probably isn't too bad. In the meantime, perhaps the ITB pain is due to weak glutes? This routine got me back fast from this the last time (foam rolling did nothing but make pain in my case...) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydcy3dPf__M
Been doing my own PT stuff on the core again the past few days. Got a couple runs in too. Energy is getting back to near normal. Core is tolerating the PT this time so will see how this progresses.
