Was just heading out for a nice 17 miler which would have taken me over one of the fell roads but as its slippery as hell down here at home to the point i even chose to go back indoors rather than something short around here. Mainly cos i'm perfectly capable of falling onto my arse around here as i discovered on a pre new year run. Roughly one fall per mile that one....
Kinda hard to train when its dark during the week and sometimes wet and weindy or very windy. Last saturdays intended run over the local hill was skipped and it was windy enoough around here. Did it sunday and amusingly it was windiest coming back down off the top when i thought i had already reached the worst bit going along the ridge at the top before the drop back down. Lets just say although its steep i could have ran flat out down it happily as i would have been held up by the wind. It was also 20-30 mph calmer than the saurday.
Hopefully it does something later either rains to dissolve the slippy icy slush or just melts a bit and i can get a few miles done. Weather forecast for coming days is not good either. Alternating between snow, heavy snow and currently sleet for tuesday with variations on a few hours of snow/sleet or the entire day.
googling says 4-8 weeks (or longer) of pain and not a lot they can do so not really worth going to the docs
no sitting for too long, avoid leaning back as it puts less stress on it, sit on a hard surface and/or donut cushion thing.... also high fibre and drink a lot of water to er reduce pain during er bodily functions. Yes that does hurt
THursday the cat decided it would be a nice idea to come down the spiral stairs at the same time as me so i kinda stood on the cat not the step and bum bounced to the bottom. Main injury, or so i thouight, was the several inch long friction burn on the inside of my elbow. Had a minor ache on bottom but nothing major, just what you would expoect from falling on it really.
Sunday was Brampton to Carlisle 10 miler and being i hadn't ran since the fall when i set off i was kinda surprised it hurt running. Did seem to pass or rather i got used to it more likely after a few miles so er come around mile 9 when i was heading into Carlisle i stumbled over a pavement but didn't fallover. DId jar me and made it hurt more again to the extent it was too sore to acclerate over the last mile. I just about managed to get under 90 mins which was my only target even if i had been hanging in pacewise for the last several miles.
Ever since it has hurt way more than before the race and even sitting hurts. I would assume its a coccyx injury or that area so erm this brusing which never really hurt pre race or worse? And yes obviously i have been on Brufen this week not that it seems to do much.
