T-Rex - Mountain Lions !!! probably a good job you'd come home already

Not sure what I've done really but it's not getting better from taking it easier and more bits of me seem to be getting aches and twinges from trying different things so I'm reluctantly giving up until i've seen a professional.  After a long chat with Mr C realised that it's better giving up on a few goals now than doing some permanent damage.  Still secretly hoping for a miracle though

Brer - well done glad you enjoyed it

T-Rex - hope your ok

Well my easy 4 mile run/walk in CyB flared my calf up again so haven't run since  walked my usual 4 mile road route yesterday with the dogs and by the end of that everything was tight again and making my knee ache.  Tried 30 mins on exercise bike this morning and while it hasn't aggravated my knee it has tightened my calf back up.  So I'm now waiting for a physio appointment and who knows how long that will take so not looking likely i'll make the start line of Chester half now.

Oh well could be worse

SD - not done the full but the half is one of my favourite races fantastic organisation and good course so I'm sure the full is too

Panad - good training

Brer - another great result are we going to see you running with Paula on Sunday ?

Getting a little worried about my little day out now I feel like I'm running out of time with training. Can any of you more experienced peeps help me work out a rough long run plan.  I was happily half fit before I overdid the miles in March and tweeked my calf (by the way been given a stretch that really seems to be helping) my last decent run was mid march 15 miles.  Aiming to run/walk 8-10 this weekend to see how I hold up.  Then I have Chester half 17/5, potentially CyB mara 20/6 (I can take this down to half but I don't want to) and then hopefully a 40 mile bimble (12 hr time limit) 22/8. I obviously don't want to overdo it again and seriously damage my calf but I want to be in good enough shape to survive happily.  Any help very appreciated.

FR - yeah a good result and into single figures countdown

Ouf where did the weekend go

Managed 6 miles yesterday on the easier trails did a 1min run/30 sec walk which worked pretty well still huffed and puffed up the last hill which a few weeks ago didn't even register as a hill . Bit stiff after but ok today.

Decided to knuckle down and try to get a few pounds off as well as recent forced inactivity is taking it's toll and I'm sure my knees will appreciate having less of me to carry around

Well done on 98 T-Rex nearly there now

Good luck at 98 TRex and at 91 FR

LG - Thanks

Group run was cancelled last night as Matt was busy with race prep fro Saturdays Goldrush but we decided as it was such a lovely evening a visit to CyB was definitely a good choice.  So we loaded up the dogs (means it will be a bit of a stop, start run and limits the distance as old dog can't go far now) and did the 3 mile run.  I ran all of it with no problems even good enough to get to the top of the last incline and ask Mr C how did we get here.  Bit stiff this morning but nothing major so very happy.

Have a lovely weekend everyone

TRex - fantastic write up as usual, got a bit worried at the rattlesnake bar section was half expecting you to say you'd met one of its namesakes  Glad the wedding went well.

LG - hopefully will be able to attempt the full at worst i'll wobble around the half with the sweeper.

Massage has definitely helped my leg and my 2 mile run/walk (Mr C is being very strict on me not going mad until completely recovered) was ok not brilliant just ok (but I'm always very stiff after even a couple of days off) so tonight I'm off to CyB group but I will pad around gently again while Mr C runs with the grown ups.  It is speed circuits night so at least I won't have to worry about being miles behind I can cheer them all on as they lap me multiple times.

T-Rex - welcome home

IF - glad your calf held up

SD - sounds like you had a lovely race

Brer - didn't realised you were doing London again the BBC should definitely interview you

Panad - hope all ok sounds like you have a busy couple of months coming up but it will be worth it

So no running for me since last Wednesday and I had a massage last night (first ever will not be last) lovely aromatherapy oils but boy did she find some ouchy bits.  She worked one point in my right glute oh my oh my (apparently it was my siatic nerve) it was just the spot where the real pain happened when my leg locked up and I had a hard time staying on the coach last night .  Still a slight ache in my right calf this morning but nothing like it was.  May try an easy run/walk tonight with plenty of rolling and stretching after and see how I get on.

JB - sorry to hear your news hope he gets better soon

Brer - being blown out to sea and swimming the channel would of made a great end to the book  but are you actually going to stop soon?

I'm  at the moment right calf has been tight since twinged it at the beginning of the year and I've been stretching and rolling it and it's not affected my running until the last couple of weeks.  Now my leg aches and seizes up when I run more than a couple of miles and even then it's heavy and like I've got no push there.  So I'm resting and I've a massage booked for Monday to try and loosen everything back up again.  Unless I can get going again soon my June marathon and the Ultra are looking a bit like a no go.

Hope your all enjoying the lovely weather x
