I preferred that post the first time Ric

You are right though, I've never been very good at taking advice - I'm too pig-headed for my own good! It's one of the reasons why I've never had a coach. That said, I didn't run yesterday when you all told me not too

Run went OK at lunch though. Just 4 easy, flat miles at about 8mm pace to see if warming it up would help. It felt OK when running, but just the same after, so overall neutral. Certainly won't be racing on Sunday though. I've been here before with this one!

Perhaps 400m is where his focus need to be?

Not sure I can agree with you about maintaining fitness though Ric. I can accept that rehab is the most important thing for an oversue injury, but maintaining fitness by cross-training, provided it doesn't hinder the rehab, can only be a good thing surely? Not just for making the journey back to full running training easier, but also for the sake of your sanity while undergoing rehab.

When I've had prolonged injuries before, not only would I have ended up putting on loads of weight, but I'd have been unbearable to live with if I couldn't have got out on my bike or even gone swimming! I would even go so far as to say I would put up with a mild underlying chronic injury and train/race with it if a) it is not taking the pleasure out of running and b) it is not being made worse

Anyway, I'm going to try an easy run at lunchtime and see what happens - if it starts to hurt I'll stop.

That's one hell of a session Matt - it has it all: Metronomic consistency, a bloody high number of reps and all at scary speed!! Very impressive....

Johnas - I was thinking about your use of the cross trainer for your adductor injury today actually. It would be good to do, but I would need to go to a Gym. It might be an option though if it carries on, as I will definitely need to do something to keep fitness. Whilst biking isn't painful, I'm sure too much of it won't help things. All that said, it does seem to be improving so I'll just play it by ear for now.

How long did he keep up those 3;xx pace Ric?

I'm entered Philip, fear not!

Hi Johnas - I did 11 miles last week too . How is it holding up now?

What's the general level of fitness

I am just about to eat a jam doughnut - 5 for 50p in Sainsburys!

I was initially sceptical about Krispy Kreme, but actually they are VERY nice....

Presumably battered and re-deep fried then

Mostly unfit. Don't know any serious runners. A few reasonable cyclists and one very fit cyclist. They are always amazed that I can walk up the stairs without being out of breath!

Crikey, after a weekend off line in London town watching the cycling there's been a million posts!  You guys post as hard as you train it seems

Lots of big miles going on, both in inidividual runs and for weekly totals - Joolska, I could not do 69 miles, my OCD would force me into adding another one on no matter if it killed me

CW - very nice half there and good prediction too! Blisters can be funny buggers to sort out. It always amazes me how something so superficial can stop us running, when we can carry on with broken limbs (sort of!). (still didn't get the "why" for the cello?)

Adductor is still playing up, but thankfully I can now ride the bike without pain, so that's OK.

Is that realy you or an imposter Samir???

ssshhhh, don't mention the hitchhikers. Ric has a very large patio - I'm saying no more......

Right, to run or not to run, that is the question! I've not run for a week now and the adductor thing has eased up significantly. However, there is still a bit of discomfort, bordering on pain, when I first stand up after sitting for a while. I'm not sure whether a very easy run at this point will ease it or set it back - decisions, decisions!

Phil and Emily Wicks?

They both have pretty demanding jobs too (and Phil likes a curry!)

As for McMillan and other calculators, UG aside, they only work for anyone who is Mr or Mrs average on a bell shaped distribution curve! For the rest of us they are just frustrating! My 10M PB "predicts" a 5k  of 16:55 and a 2:44 marathon, both of which are as obtainable as Samir going sub 2!
