sorry - been tied up with life. new job landed after a bunch interviews and dashing between london and manchester.
to be clear - been doing both ( running inside and out ). damage was done on the treadmill ( used out of convenience, late at night and waiting for a phone call ). too fast, too hard, to long. I am listening. . just
last run outdoors ; calf went again but carried on and knees hurt. bit of compartment syndrome. more worrying was the 2 days with the pain in the middle of the foot - thought id buggered a metatarsal. left knee pain when walking is not endearing.
went to doc. two weeks rest and anti-inflamitories. go back if not improved. now trying to see physio as foot OK etc but 'painkillers and 2weeks rest' is so low effort, it could pass for a lardy training session. enough of that already. not hopeful though. pain subsided but gravelly sounds when bending knees and pain when walking.
No bake-off until the lobotomy E-M
NO pastie till I complete a bala event dave. fair is fair.
picked up ongoing knee pain, both knees now - although it does ease off. sounds a little gravelly when going up stairs. pain in the left when walking.
pain is located at the bottom/back of the patella.
been running on treadmil mostly. started when i upped the pace/distance sharply.
backed it down a lttle. but not wanting to miss the half unnecessarily. i wont be as prepared as id planned.
sounds like runners knee?
the & is more concerning.
calf pain, outer left edge. very sharp then the leg kinda gives way - then its ok again. tried to run again and it gave way. stopped
sounds like a strain?
trying to mix in a little outdoors running but mindful of a pending injury so not pressing the distance/pace. running on a treadmil. normally 1+ elevation. speed around 11 min miles +/- 1min. recent research suggested elevation not important at that speed BUT probably best i keep some elevation.
im guessing treadmill might be a cause.
could I have missed something - and should stop/seek prop medical advice ( likely to be rest 2 wks, no running, no race and come back if it hadnt improved ????)
should I press on? Aim was a good 10k run, and to finish ( within sight of 2hr30 )
i know its not quick, but im not small in any dimension. But working on it.
