Stung inside mouth by a bee (not dead yet)

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 16:30

Couple of years ago I was stung. I was 17 miles in to a 20 mile run and the bee managed to sting me inside the front of my mouth. It was sore and felt swollen. Luckily when I finished the run I just looked like an unfit person who had been for a run. Lesson learned- try to keep mouth closed when running!

Knee pain (had it for months). Suggestions.

Sorry to state the obvious but have you spoken to your GP?

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Stylish- So true, me time is important . I go back to the rest of life in a much better frame of mind if I get to run regularly. Which is why 1000 mile challenge appeals.

Muttley - Congratulations on the million metres! Do you still get a  a medal for that?

My OH did it a few years ago. Back in the days of our dinning room looking more like a gym (treadmill, bike, concept 2 )

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Usual reasons -work, study  and family commitments. Just got a treadmill so even if I cant leave the house I can still run. I'm determined to make time for regular running, aiming for a running routine  rather than building up distance.

As someone who is getting back into running this looks like a great challenge. For me the challenge would be ensure I kept up the mileage throughout the whole year at a steady rate rather than going crazy in the first couple of months then doing nothing.

Thanks Ghost rider .Useful advice.

Having tried a quick run on the 4000 it felt very sturdy and I liked its thick belt and easy to use control panel. I also tried a nordic track 18 but hated the way it paused between setting a speed and then it starting. Probably going to puchase the 4000  in the next couple of weeks so I can get it delivered over Christmas.
