Well done guys and Gals, too much to catch up so will just say well done to everybody it has been tough conditions to run in over the last week.
NP, good luck with the calf, fingers crossed you won't be out for too long
I am back from my holiday break to North Wales, it is a lovely part of the world, but I did overdo it with running on consecutive days and a lot of walking I have aggravated the Achilles again, so I am back to the eccentric heel drops, I am following a 12 week rehab program, I'll look to finish this before even contemplating running, I am so sick of being injured and running with niggles is not fun I don't know why I have continued to run through it for so long, so the first step is to pull out of Aviemore HM as I would be tempted to rush the recovery to get on the start line.
Looks like I'll be be a bit of a lurker for a while but will pop in from time to time to see how everybody is getting on.
SM, another great session with the club, I hope the leg isn't too bad but judging by the pace it looks like you are managing it.
Fiona, a good run and bike session, and a speedy threshold run today enjoy the marshalling tomorrow, hopefully it doesn't rain
Ollie, congratulations on the course record today enjoy the recovery 3 later
Cal, another good run at parkrun today
HM, I hope you avoid the cold
S17, another consistent result at parkrun, shame about the timing mixup
NP, it is good to hear you are off the pain killers but not so goo =d that the calf is still giving you some problems, and at least you can still get out on the bike and into the pool.
Dr Dan, a good 10 mile run, good luck with the 10k this weekend
NN, well done with the 15 mile MLR, even an easy run is tough in the heat
Tek, I hope you are feeling better soon
Another comeback run today and it went well, I decided to go to the park and do short jog intervals, 2 minutes jog of a one minute walk, just over 3 miles in total and no calf pain, a few twinges in both Achilles but nothing really to worry about, I'll continue with the short jog intervals looking to increase the running time.
Fiona, I seen your cycle on strava well done with the QOM
SM, It was my first half way back in 2014, it is a little more challenging than the 10k as the first half is off road with a few single file sections, but a fast road finish as it follows the same route as the 10k, well done with the gym session enjoy the run later
Cal, sounds like you have got over the groin niggle, I am sure a bit of stretching and foam rolling will sort out the hammy
NN, some good sessions over the last few days good totals for the week
HM, good luck with the 10k plan
Not long back from a cycle out to Foyers, a stiff breeze on the way out nice to have it at my back on the way home, the good thing about cycling is you can stop to have tea and cake, very civilised
