Ouch Johnas - sorry to hear that. You've been on a pretty unlucky streak since last Autumn. Unpleasant as it might be, hopefully the tendonitis rather than a stress fracture....

Annoyances when out running

Dogs, dogs and dogs

dog owners, dog owners, dog owners more like!

Had a classic one yesterday, his little rat of a dog came charging, yapping and snarling at me and I nearly tripped over the stoopid thing. He came striding toward me waving his finger at me, and when I stopped to tell him what I thought of his rat, he told me off for wearing headphones and not hearing him when he told ME to stop! I ask yer! Must admit, I did feel a bit guilty for telling him if he didn't stop wagging his finger at me I would rip it off and feed it to his dog

Nice one Matt - sub 16 thrown in just like ! Good stuff!

Going to treat myself this morning, by doing a medium long one instead of a proper long one! The way I look at it is that all miles this week are a bonus, as I was expecting to have to take several days off after Wycombe

Sounds like a top pacing job Philip - nicely done! Well done on the 2nd place in the States too!

It was hot today, and inevitably that will slow you down a tad but really people should be starting to acclimatize themselves a bit more by now! We've had hot, humid weather for several weeks, so if you know you've got a race coming up, you need to get out there in it and get used to it a bit.

What's with all the philosiphising guys? Sun's shining, legs are working get out and run best as you can, while you can!

Rye parkrun this morning. Spent last night thinking about whether to venture out a bit further afield for a faster course and a go for sub 18 (still can't quite get my head around you running well over 2 mins inside that Dachs ). Glad I didn't bother in the end, as the legs clearly haven't quite recovered from last Sunday's half (not surprising really!) and it was pretty warm. The third mile ended up as a bit of a grind today, and my calves feel very tight after, but OK with 18:21 for 3rd anyway. Beats a tempo run anyway!

Don't know what you mean Dean 

The thing is though with training through niggles is that it is a judgement call taking two key things into account - will it make the problem worse and/or will it delay recovery? If the first, then clearly you are better off resting. If it is the second, then it is not so black and white. You then need to take into account the likely additional recovery time versus any potential training fitness loss and th pyschological impact of not running. I know  of others on here with similar injuries as me who have taken the rest (from running) route and the time to full recovery has been about the same.

Besides, if you are running a fair amount in your late forties and don't suffer with various minor niggles then you are very lucky!

Maybe the key to removing those niggles is some speed work o flush whatever is causing it out - who knows, but sometimes the body works in mysterious ways! My adductor problem certainly feels a whole lot better after a race that I thought would finish it off....

As for your core stuff - you should no better Mr G!!!

My Mrs has taught me a few yoga moves that really help stretch out the main leg muscle groups - downward dog (calves), Indian knot (hamstrings) and a couple of others for adductors and groin whose names escape me!

Nice run home tonight  (if a bit warm!) so double off-road 5.6M at sub 8mm pace, which is relatively quick fro the routes, so happy with my post-race legs.

Got to take the kids to Thorpe Park tomorrow - really not looking forward to that!

That'll be why you are so slow then Rob

Did you try the Indian Knot SG? I find it deeper than the bed stretch one if done properly.

Joss gave me a jelly baby once during Borrowdale .

Part worn tyres Matt? Slicks more like

Always remember watching the DVD of Naylor's run where Joss ran his 60 peaks at 60 in 24 hours and then went straight back to work on his farm building a dry stone wall!
