T-Rex - Mountain Lions !!! probably a good job you'd come home already
Not sure what I've done really but it's not getting better from taking it easier and more bits of me seem to be getting aches and twinges from trying different things so I'm reluctantly giving up until i've seen a professional. After a long chat with Mr C realised that it's better giving up on a few goals now than doing some permanent damage. Still secretly hoping for a miracle though
Well my easy 4 mile run/walk in CyB flared my calf up again so haven't run since walked my usual 4 mile road route yesterday with the dogs and by the end of that everything was tight again and making my knee ache. Tried 30 mins on exercise bike this morning and while it hasn't aggravated my knee it has tightened my calf back up. So I'm now waiting for a physio appointment and who knows how long that will take so not looking likely i'll make the start line of Chester half now.
Brer - another great result are we going to see you running with Paula on Sunday ?
Getting a little worried about my little day out now I feel like I'm running out of time with training. Can any of you more experienced peeps help me work out a rough long run plan. I was happily half fit before I overdid the miles in March and tweeked my calf (by the way been given a stretch that really seems to be helping) my last decent run was mid march 15 miles. Aiming to run/walk 8-10 this weekend to see how I hold up. Then I have Chester half 17/5, potentially CyB mara 20/6 (I can take this down to half but I don't want to) and then hopefully a 40 mile bimble (12 hr time limit) 22/8. I obviously don't want to overdo it again and seriously damage my calf but I want to be in good enough shape to survive happily. Any help very appreciated.
FR - yeah a good result and into single figures countdown
Managed 6 miles yesterday on the easier trails did a 1min run/30 sec walk which worked pretty well still huffed and puffed up the last hill which a few weeks ago didn't even register as a hill . Bit stiff after but ok today.
Decided to knuckle down and try to get a few pounds off as well as recent forced inactivity is taking it's toll and I'm sure my knees will appreciate having less of me to carry around
