I did a Spin class for the first time in months yesterday its also the longest I have trained (45 mins) for over 3 months. Leg felt good with no pain but fitness is definitely at an all time low.
Didn't really enjoy the spin class, Im definitely an outside runner rather than anything else.
I have cancelled the gym membership to just run outside. Going to take me a long time to get back to where I was due to the need to build it up really slowly to help the leg but I will get there eventually.
Not making any decisions about 2016. I just need to run and enjoy it and see where it takes me. Going to come off here now so just popped by to wish you all a great marathon journey and of course a merry Christmas and happy new year.
Thanks for your good wishes everyone. Leg is still playing up so have only been for one other 1 mile run walk. Thinking I will give it a rest until after Christmas now to give it more time to recover.
Feeling pretty down about everything and don't even know whether I will ever do a marathon or if I want to. Just going to run for pleasure for a few months and do the distance my legs feel like on the day with no kind of training plan and see how I feel in April.
Thanks Barry Toby and Andy
Just been to physio. She says I'm out for another 6 weeks before I can run 3 miles consistently as have to run walk and build up slow or injury will be back. Pain today means it's not as healed as I had thought. This would give me 12 weeks to train for Brighton is this too short a time? Will I risk injury?
Thanks AndyP and PGbear. Went for my run walk this evening and it was awesome! No pain!! I CAN RUN AGAIN So happy to be able to start my training programme. It may only be a few short run walks for now to ease my leg back into it but I'm over the moon to be able to get back out there.
Also discovered a new kit combination of shorts and hockey socks - looks a little odd but I hate wearing leggings as I find them too warm and this is the perfect combination as if I get too warm I can roll the socks down. Did have knees as red as my socks when I got home though as its very cold down here today
