You are doing well JR. £110 is not cheap but if they enhance your your running and keep you injury free then they are a solid invesment!
I have struggled a little in the heat over the last week. Certainly not like the Aberdeen I am used too!
It has gone quiet on the forum, I hope everyone is doing okay. Grendel3, you are obviously doing fine. Well done. What about the rest of you?
Progress for me is slowed at the moment but is still measureable. I am using Endomodo GPS tracking software on my phone which is really good for announcing each km and the split time for that km. Plus at the end of the workout I can review my pace at various points of the route I have run. I find this much better than sticking to a couple of tracks and comparing times. I can basically head out and run wherever I want on a whim and still have good data about time distance and pace. Anyone else using such software?
Hopefully you can get yourself sorted an we can go for a wee jog when we go to Aviemore for your stag weekend. I have only been back at the running for a few months so you will have to be gentle but maybe you could teach me a few things!
Well done you guys. You are making some excellent progress.
I work offshore so have only had access to treadmill for the last week and a half. I must say it is not doing my on/off left foot injury any good!
Although I think this may be realted to the fact that I can run longer on the treadmill without a walk break. On friday I did 3mins walk followed by 17mins run at 10KPH then 3mins walk then 7mins run at 10KPH then 5 min cool down walk. About an hour later my left foot was in some pain!
Again I seem unable to take my own advice. I can't help myself, the hadrer the run the better the post run high!!
It sounds a little bit like runners knee. Have you got new trainers recently? Did the pain start slowly and mildly while you were running before becoming painful when you weren't running?
I am not sure how long you had off but coming back from injury I would suggest starting slightly slower than a 5K first time out. Try some run walk combinations and build up slowly to see what aggrivated the pain.
If the pain is there I would suggest a new gait analysis and new trainers.
