I.think.that the odd over training reaps a benefit down the line. But not when it's done too often. I wouldn't be concerned about your 800 interval tines. The training effect will have happened regardless of the times. Yes yes take it easy now all week. That doesn't mean don't train! Just run easy and keep the number of miles on check. That would be my advice!!
That sounds an interesting drawing course. Go for it. My colour course is a free one put on by futureLearn.
My neck injury began after my rather nasty ski accident some 17 years ago when I wrapped myself round a metal post at speed and perforated my intestines. There were more pressing emergency injuries to deal with at the time. Hope you enjoy your time in the lakes. I know you will. Actually I only have 2 Murals in the garden!! I am now making a couple of indoor pictures for a raffle for a charity coffee morning that I am putting on in Dec for a neighbour who runs a small charity for a primary school in Tanzania.
Your knee won't get complely better but you will be ale to control the symptoms. I was told like you, if you remember, a couple of years ago not to run again. But once the initial problem had healed and the swelling had gone down it never hurt again. But small amount of O A was present on an X-ray. I most certainly have OA in my left thumb, which was the arm which was fractured last year, and my thumb was involved in the accident, lots of crunching going on when I rotate it from time to time. The nerves are still not recovered both in my wrist, hand and fingers.
All best with Beachy, gosh Kieran is a young lady now, I guess she has to be since Matilda, my eldest granddaughter is 16 now.
Looks like you havent lost a lot of pace with your achilles injury. Just mileage! Glad you are now free of the flu
Good to see NZC back again and doing a half marathon, enjoy. I don't have a running injury as such. But a neck problem which has been with me for decades, I decided that enough was enough and want to get it sorted, I am getting used to my walking with a challenge of getting faster! Not the end of the world if I don't run again but I do want to keep fit.
Good luck with your physio.
You are working hard and using the youngsters in a way that will give you respect from them.
How is there spinning coming along?
Wobble board doing its job then. Excellent.
I am still walking, although I did put in a few 20 sec or so runs on Monday. But it hurt my neck, so I had been told to not run if the pain returned, so being a good girl I carried on walking. Have been walking about 13 miles or so each week, getting faster and getting my HR higher as a result. Such lovely weather here in the SE, I have found walking to be very pleasant, taking in the autumn colours.
Finishing my 6 week mindfulness future learn course and am also doing one on colour whIch is very interesting. I have completed my latest mosaic project and it has been hung in the garden, I am very pleased with the result.
I have been making kefir and several raw fermented vegetables in Mason jars.
