Sorry I haven't been on here for a while. It's been a hectic week with some ups and downs. Firstly, I've just found out I'm being made redundant at Christmas. However, I'm looking on the bright side at all the extra time I'll have for training while job hunting!
Secondly, I went to see a physio about a problem with my knee and after half an hour, he was still going through the list of things wrong with my knees; hypertension, tight hamstrings and calves, wonky ankles (can't remember the technical term) weak muscles around my knees and my right knee cap is not in the right place! Luckily, he's coming up with lots of stretches and exercises for me to do - and I'm going to have plenty of time to do them!!
On the postive side, training is going well, went out for a run on Tuesday with a friend I haven't run with for about 6 months and I kept up with him! Back then, I ran about half his pace.
I've been fairly lucky with blisters - as it not getting many at all! However, I've had a real problem with friction burns - particularly on my arms. Think I'll have try out some vaseline before my next decent run. I've not bothered so far, because I've figured it will just rub off on my vest, but I guess it's worth a go!
