Distance measure - radar

Thanks very much - I will have a look.

I have heard that the GPS ones do drop signal a fair bit so was wonderingthe the radar was better - odd that it doesn't seem to have taken off though - maybe it's really expensive....

met someone a few months ago who was wearing a distance measuring thing that you put on your waist and it measure your distance with a radar as you run. I can’t find these anywhere and am beginning to wonder if I am imagining it! Does anyone know what I mean??

Thanks,

Dom

My ankle hurts!

Is it your achilles tendon that is hurting? I'm no expert but having had achilles tendonitus I would say REST REST and more REST! As well as the usual ice packs and so on.

How much slower are you on the grass?

Hello,

I am interested in your experiences of running on the grass as opposed to the road or pavement.

I have recently recovered from an injury and had to take a month off so would have expected to slow down a little. However I am now running on the grass mostly, rather than the pavement, to be kinder to my body, but I am so much slower! How much do you think this can be attributed to the surface??

Any opinions would be great!

Many thanks,

Dom

Hello,

I have been reading this thread for the past few weeks and gave up (partly inspired by you guys) and it had now been 2 weeks. It is getting easier allt he time and I feel so much healthier already. And it gets easier every day (with occasional exceptions like the pub on friday!)

So thanks everyone - and stick with it!!

Achilles pain

Well, thanks for the excellent advise all. I have had 2 visits to a physio now. It turns out the achilles problem was very mild, but I had also sprained my anke. However I was very good and have completely rested it and been doing lots of stretches. Am hoping to go for a gentle run at the end of the week.... thank goodness as I have been going mad not being able to run!

Has anyone any experience of using a wooble board? The physio has suggested I get one to strengthen my ankles, improve balance and help recover from the injury..

Early morning running

I rarely run in the morning, but when I do, to stop feeling quite so stiff I have a short hot shower before stretching. I find this helps a bit..
