U don't need to lose weight CM. Women's sizing doesn't help with giving people idea they r fat. Cos really a 6/8 in a short person is the equivalent of a 10/12 in a mid height person and a 14/16 in a tall person. But everyone panics when they start getting into the 14/16 category. Yet women over 5' 7" really should b in that size category to b a healthy weight if they r medium framed.
Did 8 Miles this morn and felt quite good. Wasn't limping when I got up this morn, 1st time in a long time. Footfall on both feet sounded similar on run today and altho have bit of soreness from massage it felt so much better. Didn't limp to school at 3 either. Such a relief. Masseuse reckons that quad tear from 2 yrs ago is root of all problems, quad is full of scar tissue,need to stretch it out and she is pummelling it all out too. Lots of ITB stretching too as they were just awful. Too many long days on feet on day trips with kids with lots of stop start slow walking which is just awful for muscles. And too many going over on ankle during dirty 30 and after it, ligament can cope as they are nice and stretchy but muscles are just freaking out and knotting up. So lots of work for me to get to pain free happy running, but I will get there cos I'm a stubborn b!tch
