Enjoy the run Tim, that Bike session sounds like a good one especially if suffering with the calves, might give that a go as well. Sounds like you'd be better staying away from the Amex just in case you can be blamed for a defeat
Did about 4.5 miles yesterday, could feel the calf a little for last half mile, however there was minimal pain after, and stretching seemed to ease that even more. I foam rolled last night, and compared to a week ago it felt miles better so I'm still reasonably hopeful. My current thinking is to not push for a long, long run too soon but build up over the next week into double figures with the calf strengthening. If no bad reactions I'll do longer runs. Otherwise I think I'll defer sadly as I don't want to do London half cooked after last year.
Morning all, been a hectic few days but starting to see the light again. Good to see so many positive performances this weekend including silverware by Angela well done. Oh and great stuff BRB on the GNW half, I did it last year so no just how tough those winds can be, coupled with the rain you had this year that's some effort.
Great to see the running still going well and positive progress being had Tim, and glad the hols went well. Prob had the best possible weekend to have to miss a LSR as the wife was away and had the kids so wasn;t too frustrating. Been doing the rehab from the webinar i mentioned last week, then did 4km on the treadmill on Monday without any twinges. Going to try for a bit longer today, it feels a lot better with no pain when pressing so fingers crossed.
Good work on the Parkrun Sean, that's an impressive time for your first one, would think a sub 20 would be very achievable.
Sorry to hear you've been ill Efillio but glad to see you back running.
Cheers SK, I found the webinar very useful and lots of good info and plenty of videos and other rehab routines as well so was pleased. I guess the frustration is even with that, and the fairly positive feedback from the physio that no major probs exist, i'm still getting pain from the calf and not able to run. I'm hoping with a bit of patience and using the routines it won't be a big deal.
Good luck all either racing or doing long runs today, very jealous.
Cheers SK, I've followed James for a while on twitter and found quite a few of the articles useful, this will be the first time I've attended anything of his, all be it virtually, so hoping to get some useful stuff, as my calves have been my achilles heel for a while, if that makes sense .
Great running Ruffles well done on the silverware, oh and well done Mr Puffy on the HM, did they get the logistics right this year? Think this was the one that had a marshal error and added about half a mile?
