I thought tobermory was a womble! Only kidding! Very jealous ..living in the built up south east of England [Im originally from the east of manchester ie on the edge of the pennines and a short hop to the peak district] is a bit of a pain if you need to get out on some scenic runs. I tend to try and drive to parks and countryside and do fab runs when on hols in cornwall as part of my holiday treat.
1 week from restarting my running ..cant wait and it will be HADD all the way!
I have to start as though its from scratch so Ill be building mileage very slowly at 70% of maxHR with lots of walking ...to be safe I might lower the HR zone alarm to say 120 [normally 138] as I will need to walk alot or the physio will go mad with me!
Had no problems with mine - wet it with saliva and make sure its a snug fit and away I go with no problem. KY sounds pretty messy! Maybe try the contact gel the physio uses during my endless ultra sound sessions!
Only 2 weeks before I can start to walk/run as long as it remains pain free!!
yeah sounds like a rouse by Garmin - bet it wasn't cheap! I have a polar f2 which was 30 quid and does the job if a bit basic as I dont get the mileage breakdown etc. I'll probably go with a polar HR strap and hook it up to my iPhone app at some point.
Unfortunately my injury wasnt because of high mileage or hard sessions. I saw 2 - yes 2! - physio's when I started and they both told me my gait was neutral and I wouldnt need any special support etc. The third one told me I over pronate and asked why was I running in the shoes I had bought - she was bordering on being quite cross with me!
I have lumps [scare tissue] on my achilles and I doomed to wearing something with a heel at all times for the rest of my days.
Im really not happy! I went to the physio's rather than a shop because I thought Id get a non bias answer - didn't expect to get a completely wrong one twice!
BeDe - glad youre back in the swing of things - mightily jealous as Im on day 17 of NO training!! Arrrgggh - completely driving me nuts Im restricted to swimming [boring!] and walking [tooo slow].
However achilles is feeling better and the new inner soles now feel good.
Im going to 'run through' the 3 trailblazer 10k's at the end of May early June with absolutely no eye on any times. So I'll start at the back of one of the sub55 groups and jog round keeping a low HR. I will be starting HADD proper about then for the rest of the year and maybe do the odd parkrun just to feel part of things.
new target - run 15miles by end of year with avgHR of less than 75% doing an even pace of less than 10min/miles.
