On friday 31st Jan I slipped slightly on some ice. Had a bit of pain in the back of my right knee for the weekend, so no training. Back at it on monday (spinning), did a rowing class on tuesday morning but knee hurt a bit so didn;t go to running club in the evening. Did a little running on the treadmill on weds- felt OK. Thursday did a circuit/boxing class with running about in- felt OK. Friday did a circuit class- felt OK, saturday did uphill walking (gentley) and felt OK. Sunday, did Wokingham Half. OK for 12 miles then knee just died on me. Limped home unhappy and sore (2.01, 5 minutes slower than previous 1/2M). Now my knee hurts, nbot just at the back but all the way round. Have iced it, got the ibuleve gel out and planning a few days off hard exercise. What else should I do? Can I still swim? What might I have done? There is no obvious swelling or particularly tender spots. Any help greatly appreciated- I currently walk like I have an artificial leg... Thanks
I have had a putative diagnosis of a spot of tendonitis in my right foot (pain on top of foot and lower shin upon flexing/extending foot). It seems to come and go, and at the moment all I am doing is rubbbing Ibuleve on it. Can I do any more than this? I have calmed down my training a bit, but should I rest completely? Ice? Heat? Amputation? Any advice appreciated.
I have already asked for a new Polar HRM! What I really want is a dog, having just spent 6 weeks at home being homeless and jobless my only joy was taking my mother's dogs out for 3 hour walkies. And being able to run for miles along canals. And now I live in London, so for Christmas I'd like new carpets, new curtains and a sofa for our new flat.
After an initial toe-sucking, he asked if he could run his nose up my leg (!?). I said no. Then he asked if he could suck my toes again. I said no. He said "well you let me do it before". I replied "That was to see if I liked it- I didn't, so f*** off!"
And yes, he was a complete stranger. Don't ever go into Park End in Oxford!
