Some impressive and mental (Al_P!) long runs going on here.
Well done Muss and ES for the wins
Thanks for all the encouragement and sympathy.
As suggested by Lev, I've entered the murky world of cross training in an attempt to not go mad and/or turn into a boozy mess. There's a gym at work with cross trainers etc. so today I did 3x10mins at a heart rate somewhere around LT. Whilst I was working a bit, it didn't feel as hard as proper LT running. HR was definitely in the right area - any suggestions as to why this might be? Would I be better off doing it on a bike? I am very much a novice when it comes to this stuff. I'd like to maintain as much aerobic fitness as possible whilst not running.
TR - A bit too crestfallen to plan (although beer is helping!) properly but there is a small local marathon that my Mum could come and watch in late October. I could potentially win it and I know that would make her very happy.
At the moment I'm just a bit worried that my usually reliable fizz didn't get the problem nailed in one. Going to see her again when she's free and hopefully get back to pain free running ASAP as I feel similar to CC2!
