Just lost a long post! Glad you have had restful day Shades and got out for a run.
Lots of talk of Achilles. I will share my experience and would appreciate other people's thoughts and advice. 3 months ago I injured my Achilles. I was advised by my physio to rest completely from running. I did exercises eg heel raises, swimming and cycling. A couple of weeks ago my physio gave me the ok to start running again gently. She has advised me not to run long distance and to run as much as I can on soft surfaces. I will be very disappointed if I can not run half marathons or marathons but would rather run shorter distances than not at all. I returned to park run yesterday, which was great but felt the Achilles on the hills. I know I am not fully recovered as I sill struggle to put weight on my foot some mornings. So I am just taking things steady and plan to hopefully build up my running but also cycle and swim.
Happy memories of a year ago! 17 miles was a difficult time for me and I was so happy to see the balloons at Mudchute, the hug and encouraging words from Super Caz helped me on my way. Thankyou! X
No VMLM for me this year but Windermere instead...
((Big G)) I have just had quick look at the thread and I am so shocked by your news. I am very sorry for your loss. So sad and tragic. You and Stephs family are in my prayers.
Been unwell on and off since new year. Managing a few gentle runs but hope to build that up soon.
Hope everyone else is ok.
I am just doing last minute packing etc before heading south tomorrow to celebrate Christmas with my family. I wanted to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas. ((Big G)) you are especially in my thoughts.
Thank you so much everyone for all your kind words and support this year. It has meant a lot to me
