hey Howard just catching up on thread see you got deferred too!! What was your injury? back yet...and yes the challenge 12 months of injury free running. Im going to do strength training and spin lots!!
I tore adductor muscle but thats not the half of it - got a scan on leg and ive damaged my acl - i had a repair job 20 years ago and have a bolt in my shin!! this is why my biomechanics are so screwed up as im running and my knee wants to hyperextend but of course your body counteracts that and bascially i was doing my 20 milers and every second step was my brake! I dont need another op though just strengthen and change my whole running style
I will whisper this as some on the thread that know me know i went skiing in February - afraid thats what did it and not a slip as i first thought. Anyway that's the latest theory to my every deterioating body - Im 42 not 82 FFS
Hi Howard - yup but i REALLY need to get the bug back when i start again. I really have lost my running mojo and hate the thought of "starting again". I need to get some advice on back to running after 6-8 weeks out.
SOrry been away on holiday - took the huff after pulling out of VMLM and went away for 10 days with family. Ikle well done on London - sounds like you did amazing with the heat, crowds and ITB! You battle through and are an insipration to us all!
You also rule TOTP obviously too
As for me week 6 of no running at all Spin class at lunch though
