Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I had it for a while if you remember. To ease and relieve the symptoms I wore some high her, boots for a few days. You will have to have a go with M's!!!! There seems to be 2 approaches to healing it, one being the route your physio is taking and the other the complete opposite. Eg, getting one's feet and toes very mobile and moving into bare foot running shoes. Both approaches seem to work. Certainly, if I feel mine coming back, I do LOADS of calf stretches and this, for me, seems to help a lot. Wishing you all the best with conquering the pf, I know that you will do so. Oh, yes, the other thing I did which hurts but helps me is rolling my foot on a tennis ball and holding on areas that hurt. Well done to Katy, she did good.
You are making such good progress.
Watching the VLM yesterday on TV got Stewart very keen to have another go when he is 65 yrs. As for me, the whole thing leaves me cold, no desire at all!!!!!
Know nothing about bikes so no contribution from me. It doesn't mean I'm not interested though.
I thought Kelly Holmes did very well yesterday in th VLM. 3:11 is A great time from a sprinter! She still has quite developed muscles, I guess she still works out with her juniors. The British lady who came first cant remember her name, but will be going to Rio, had a very strange gait. She has knock knees and her hips didn't move at all, whereas the lady who came 2nd Brit looked a much more comfortable runner.
6 tricky miles which were nearly all run is great progress. Today I notice that your HR now has a few 130 number in it. Showing your progress again. Yes I expect I do need to push to pace higher, however, I do find that I get very tired after such a training run. The 400's will do the trick nicely when it get around to them! I have to say that I am a Ludite too when it comes to a watch and intervals. There is no other way.
I have ran around Tooting Bec Common many times. Hope you enjoyed the experience. How annoying about your watch incident yesterday,
I have had a respiratory virus for the last few days, not a cold as such. But not pleasant at night and first thing in the morning. Anyway this morning I went for a de-gunge run!
3 miles, 26:47 mins, av pace 8.54 mm, av HR 134, MHR 157
1.5 miles down, then 1.5 miles up.
9.00 mins, 120
9.05 mins, 134
8.36 mins, 149
Has anybody seen the video on YouTube of Prince Charles and many Shakesperean actors, it's well worth a view and is very funny and clever.
I am short of time, but read your post, certainly don't take my sage advice ever, tremendous news about your time I think Coe used to warm up before a race by running for MILES! The cycling is obviously doing you good.
What a bummer when you were just getting back into your stride and pace. I guess you have iced it regularly. I think that lots of calf muscle stretches might help because the two areas work in conjunction with each other. You have my commiserations. I hope it responses to your attention to it pdq.
You were part of the teams, the cyclist couldn't have won a medal on his own!
Talking of medalling, which isn't a word I have ever used before, in fact I know I only use the word as a noun. I am going into my youngest granddaughter's school next week for the day, it is Mum's day (having had Dad's day a couple of weeks ago), granny's can visit too if Mum is working? Anyway, I got a call from the said granddaughter asking me to take a medal or two into school with me because she wants to show them to her classmates. She is very excited! It is a class of 4/5 yr olds.
Again the fast girls wouldn't have been able to win without you, be proud. I feel I want to change your name to ' Fresh as a Daisy'
I had to giggle at incident concerning the poor lady Mayoress you are in for a busy few days travelling around the country I hope you had a good hash last evening with some good tucker and not too much mud!
I have been running without any walking breaks since the end of Jan, so for the last 3 months only.
Another perfect day of wall to wall sunshine, lots of happy people walking about.
No Pilates today, my teacher's husband was taken ill with a brain bleed and is now brain dead but still physically alive. Aged around 52 yrs. Not good
So I set off for a 5 mile run. 48.20 mins, av pace 9.39 mm, av HR 132. This is the fastest I have ran 5 miles in a good while.
