Still no running here but I've been pain-free every morning since the WE. Went for a nice walk by the river last night. Sometimes I forget how beautiful it is down there when I try to hit arbitrary numbers on my Garmin, completely oblivious to the fact that running is also about enjoyment.
Annual blood-letting today to establish iron levels, thryoid hormones and the like.
I may chance a short run tomorrow ... see how it goes.
2old/Barry: I'm following the Alfredsons protocol in search of relief. Google it. There's lots of YouTube clips around. Got the tip from another long term sufferer over on the daily training thread. Make no mistake, this HURTS and no way I can do 180 reps per leg!! But even with less reps it seems to work. This morning I had no pain when I got up. First few steps usually really hurt. Fingers crossed.
They hurt like he'll, ale. No way could I add extra weight!! I can't even do one proper set yet without pausing as my muscles just give up on me and turn into jelly... My legs are really sore today but I think it's sore in a good way. Good news getting your son off that couch
