Great to see you running again Stewart 

NP Happy Birthday and I hope the ankle is improving! 

OH that sounded terrible for poor Elspeth, I hope she makes a speedy recovery. Very well done to you on the half.

Stuart great new parkrun PB!  Get that bike out! 

I've not read back too far but there is lots of great running going on; hopefully will keep up to date but any other time I've posted on here I've had a setback!

A bit of running and cycling for me. Longest run in months (9.25 miles) done on Saturday followed by hill reps on the bike. A short run and longer cycle on Sunday then a short run and turbo session last night.

Fantastic results NP  and great tactical running!

Lots more great running. Envious of all the autumn marathon training going on.

New orthotics arrived last week so getting used to them before I attempt to increase time on feet.

A stunning cycle last night with a refreshment stop at Dores Inn on Loch Ness side for a large glass of Pinot Grigio. The cycle home was interesting!

Thinking of you OH, hope all goes well.

NN I must admit although I have entered London again I do wonder if marathons are worth the injury risk (for me) rather than just being able to run.

NP you got to love dogs and their lovely habits - all part of their charm! 

Nice easy run Stuart.

MG1 great finish to your run.

30 minutes last night 8mm pace. Ankle niggly so will just keep the running slow and short in the meantime. Bike tonight in full summer gear!

OH hope the treatment happens fast and you get well soon. Take care.

MG1 I'm a great believer in cross training now!!

Take care NN.I had the 'nothing will stop me running' outlook and eventually it did! However we always get back to it.  Sounds like the foot is pretty much fixed!

Great report NP and sounds like you really enjoyed the 10k. All building up nicely towards the games!

Stewart hopefully that will sort out the calves, fingers crossed.

Stuart, a tough session, well done! The jog was not bad. Have to keep the pace slow as anything faster and I feel the ankle but waiting on new orthotics.

The gait analysis I had done a month ago was interesting and the total opposite of the run shop. All done with sensors and electrodes on my back. Floor sensor showed that 80% of my weight and propulsoin goes through my right leg (corrected with orthotics). Also showed that I hardly touch the ground with my heel or inside of foot so previous advice of me being a bad overpronator and heel striker were so worng!!

30 minutes on Monday night was fine. A nice easy 30 mile cycle last night (got one strava QOM ) and another short run planned tonight and maybe something on the bike. Will see how time goes.

OH I hope you are wrong - but if not that you will not be back in hospital for long.

MG1 that's a good week's training.

Teknik take care of that hamstring and Stuart hope yours is just tight!

NP1 nice warm weather training. No sign of summer here either.

Stewart know how you feel. No fun talking about running when you can't.

Did a 30 minute jog on Saturday then cut the cycle short yesterday as coughing too much to breathe and pedal. Will try a 30 minute jog tonight then physio again tomorrow.

Too kind NP but I do like the hills!  Even after the 3 pistes I still have the QOM for the Lecht and Corgarff killer climb  although I'm sure that will change in summer! 

OH hope you feel better soon.

Teknik are you still streaking?  First pain free run in months done on Thursday. Hope it wasn't a fluke! I think the shockwave therapy is working.

Stuart I did the 3 pistes - brutal conditions and so many folk walking up the hills. The trick is not to stop!


MG1 hope you enjoyed your rest day.

mace I hope all is well with you - you are still running well. 

Planning a short run tomorrow (fingers crossed) then some bike miles on Sunday. Cycling has made me realise how cheap running is. My new wheels cost about as much as the bike...but they are lovely!

Afternoon all!  Lots of good running going on you lucky people.

I've only read back a few pages but did see a mention of shoe/orthotic change!  Been out of running now for 8 months because of that. Have done a bit of cycling. Just sorted my VLM deferral for 2016.

Hello all! Just had a quick check in; I got my London magazine in so must defer that.
Congratulations AGF!!!
Everyone else keep up the great training you lucky folks.
I'm not running but I am training - on the bike. Have entered a road race and a sportive just to keep me going.
I have an appointment to get the ankle checked out as that's 6 months now.
The Portugal holiday was the best ever as I took the bike and enjoyed it much more than the times I've been running (!) but that was mainly down to whole days out, hundreds of miles and custard pies!
Stay safe and injury free all and I'll be checking in after the spring marathons,

NN good to see you taking a rest day, I take every Friday off and love it. MG1 sounds like a much needed rest day too.

Stuart that sounds like a brutal session! Dont think I could ever run that fast

OH good to hear nice and mild with you especially if you are planning to get back into the sea - brrr!

Gaz I hope it was dehydration and that you still feel  ok.

Teknik good luck! Hope the weather is good. You will fly round

NP are you parkrunning tomorrow too?

Stewart it will be great to get your son home

Felt a lot better last night thanks although that was my second day without chocolate so still not 100%!! Did 10.5 miles with a few threshold efforts at the end. Not easy gauging pace when so dark and can't see the garmin - roll on the light nights!! Rest day today.

Stuart I've doen GNR twice. Second time I was int he front pen and it was fine at the start - the usual folk barging past like rockets that you then trot past afte a mile or so!

Well done on the double day MG1.

Great MP run again Teknik. Nice to see things keep improving.

OH that sounds like a nice run.

NP another good double day and nice recovery run.

Gaz good that you can juggle things around to get the running in.

Intervals for me last night didn't go so great. Meant to be 6 and only did 3 and had to stop and jog back to the car. Was really dizzy at the start of the week so must be that. Will get out tonight for a few miles.
