Thanks for your advice. The ankle has not been a problem so far.....touch wood. Hamstrings have been a bit tight but have found some good stretches which have sorted them out. So pleased to be back into it. This time last year thought running would be out of the question for good, even contemplated selling my garmin. Glad I didn't.
I would never have described myself as particularly athletic but last year I managed to get into running and was getting my mileage up to about 8 miles with 9-10 min miles but I broke my ankle and needed pins and plates and that stopped my running until now. Over the last 4 weeks I have started running again and I am up to 4.5 miles but as my miles increase my speed is decreasing (closer to 10 min miles) and I am wondering what's better. To not worry about pace and keep pushing for distance. I want to run a half marathon next year. I have been adding intervals into my run and a 30 min fartlek session once a week but I am just wondering what I need to concentrate on. Any advice gratefully received. Many thanks
Broke ankle at start of oct and still waiting for physio. Ankle is very stiff in morning and swollen by evening. Walking unaided with a limp. Hope your physio goes well. Likely to continue to be be swollen for sometime
Broke my ankle at start of oct and needed two plates as broke tibia and fibula. Have appointment Monday to see if can partially weight bear but wondering if anyone has any advice about how it took them to walk properly unaided, run, any thing they found useful such as exercises. Do plates have to come out to run?
