Fiona, is that the road that takes you up to Blackfold, if it is I cycled it last summer and I had to push the bike up a short section, it was about 2 miles of pain. The injury is improving the heel drops along with the other strength exercises I am doing is helping, the plan states that once I can do the heel drops with added weights, without any pain I can start introducing a gentle start back to running, but I am not going to rush the process,
SM, looks like you have set a target for next month
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.
