pink - well done. Great that you can feel you're getting quicker.
Barry - great 10 miler.
Chick - hope you're feeling better now.
Freemers - all starting to go in the right direction. Did you have shockwave therapy?
I managed to slightly strain my hammy after my shit 10k on Sunday. Did 5 miles slow on it on Tuesday and made it worse. Rested yesterday but will try a gentle run again today. Also I managed to walk into a door yesterday (sober!) and smashed my shoulder. Feels so bruised
Pink/Barry - loving the competition! Great running. Nice pb pink!
kiwi - good to see you on the comeback.
Horrid 10k for me yesterday. So hot. 44:01 official and 7th lady. @2000 runners and well organised for a first event. I found the heat a killer. struggled @3-5 miles in the heat and hung in but pretty much mentally lost the will to live and still hate that distance.
Kiwi - I had it last summer for months when training for the half ironman. In the end I didn't ever where heels or flat shoes. Bought orthorics from boots and wore them in everything and had 5 sessions of shockwave therapy which helped rid it. I also massaged it every day. Deeply. You can buy a splint to stretch it in too for @18 quid on internet.
made the lake for the first swim of the year this morning. @1600m. Was lovely. will now get back into swim of it!
10k tomorrow. Dreading it. Hate them but I know they're good for me. Hope my stitch doesn't kick in too early. It's gonna be a hot one too!
Well don't to the triathletes! Ant - was that your first?
cooks - is windermere a full on marathon?
DD - nice biking!
daren - I am struggling with the exact same pain. It won't go away. Worse the harder I run.
chick - safe journey home. Bet it's been epic.
I managed 5x1000m reps yesterday. Horrid. Got my first 10k in 18 monThs on Sunday. The inaugural Royal Berkshire 10k. 5000 runners and I'm number 25. WTF? Did 9 miles this morning. Still feels hard. My stitch feels like it's always there but never quite sharp enough to stop.
Open water swimming down the pond starts this weekend for me. or maybe tomorrow as if looks nice. My boy has just got a job rowing the kayak up and down the lake watching the swimmers!! Cushy or what?!!
YKW - first woman in 20:30 (pb as I've only done Oxford...injured!) and 16/240 so pretty happy with that. Forgot just how much I hate these short fast ones. 5 minutes in and I thought I was gonna puke...and was thinking thank god this isn't a 10k
