P&D Autumn Marathon Training Thread 2014

Posted: Today at 11:01

Hello all. Still no running for me, leg still not right. Have also lost my running mojo a bit, eventually when I have my leg back I will need to re-discover it. Am frankly enjoying having more energy and not walking round the house like a zombie. Still gymming it and went for a swim yesterday (50m pool - a long way when you're out of shape swimming wise!).

Hopefully I'll be up and running soonish - and will aim to do a few low key race at the end of the year.

Yorkshire marathon organisers say I can defer to next year, but still have to pay!

Keep at it all of you, not long to go now. Be smart and keep a check on any niggles, now is not the time to get injured.

I also am possibly out...got something wrong with outside of lower left leg. Not sure what. Haven't ran for about 3 weeks and I still reckon a week or two away from being able to run again. I emailed them about deferring and transfers etc., they will defer but still have to pay as Karl says above, and I  don't think they do transfers.

Use pain as your guide. If painful don't run, and maybe add a few more days after pain gone to make sure? If you must run only run if pain 3 or below on a scale of 0 to 10 where 0=no pain and 10=worse pain you could imagine.

Other than that sounds like you're doing all the right things. Good luck.

Hello. Just back from N Wales for a long weekend with the family. No running, plenty of walking, crabbing, eating and drinking. Did notice adverts for Conwy Half in November which could be a goer, liked Conwy. Nice scones.

Yes, could be same Andrews. I read about that compartment syndrome, if gets too bad it all gets a bit scary! Hopefully I will be back running next month some time, will slowly build up the mileage again and will probably not bother with York but just "run for fun" before spring marathon training starts in the new year.

Well, I did some intervals on the bike in the gym, so there. Running is so last month don't you know, cycling's where it's at. I'll be ready for the Tour De France next year the way I'm going. You should see my quads, they're feckin enormous.

Actually I tried running a few strides on the treadmill but still a bit too painful...improving though...slowly....

Scott - I have already been to the physio/sports rehab at local Uni and am going back again in a few weeks after their summer break. They thought it was probably an overuse injury of one of my peroneal muscles but didn't rule out a stress fracture. The only reason they thought it wasn't a stress fracture is that I said it didn't get worse as I ran on it. The only way to find out is a mri or bone scan which is expensive etc. They told me not to run if too painful, and I haven't ran a mile since as still hurts just when I run a few steps. Normal recovery time from a stress fracture down there is 4 to 6 weeks. So, quite resigned to not running for now, and I'm ok with that. Probably won't be marathoning in the autumn, but you never know, take each day as it comes. I've ran a lot of miles the last 3 or 4 years and have been lucky with injuries, but I guess something had to give in the end. I have felt like I was pushing it this summer and needed a rest, and now I've had one forced on me.

On the plus side I'm not feeling totally knackered all the time at the moment and it gives me a chance to check out the hot babes in the gym (well, the hot OAPs). On the down side I can't eat shitloads anymore, and I do miss the freedom that running brings (but I don't miss those silly mp/LT/VO2 runs!).

Good running all.
