Thanks T.mouse. I've yet to manage 3 runs a week but might try 3 shorter runs and build up from there. 45-50 miles a week - that's impressive! I'll be happy to get to 20 I think, haven't worked out the maths but I've got plenty of time to build up slowly for a spring half.

Thank you - didn't fancy the idea of starting from scratch! Just back from a 5 miler & feeling good so hopefully won't be long before I'm back to double figures

Hi, I've been running for many years now - averaging 3 runs a week adding up to 15-20 miles.  Have taken part in half marathons and my last race was London marathon in April.   

Since June, I've hardly run at all - due to illness. Averaging 1 or 2 runs a week and not even reaching double figures. Average pace 10 min mile. My last longest run was 6 miles three weeks ago.  I'm ready to start building up the mileage again but can't remember the golden rule..... Is it not to increase by more than 10% a week or 2 miles a week?  I don't want to overdo it but am hoping to do a half marathon next Spring.

Any tips anyone?

Thanks so much Henny - it's good to hear that you are still able to train. Although I'm newly diagnosed it's thought that I have had this for many years during which time I've been very active - I'm sure it's being fit that has helped me - the only difference is that I now know why I trip and fall a lot - many a time I've returned from a run with scabby knees!
My last relapse knocked me for six and its taking a while for things to settle down - at least I now have an excuse for being slow!

I hope you're keeping we'll now

I know this is an old thread but just wondered how everybody's doing?

I've been recently diagnosed with MS and now that I'm back in remission am back running again although I think it'll be a while before I'm back to my previous weekly mileage of 20!

Was just looking for some tips if anyone has any....

A nerve related thing?

Thanks guys - the Internet is indeed a dangerous thing..... In future I'm avoiding all the medical stuff and will just stick to the running stuff - not that I'm running at the mo, that just feels too strange!

Just back from a walk and feeling more positive, might have to switch to swimming & yoga for a bit!

Funny coincidence - I've had labrinthitis also! The last time I had it was last summer.

Only reason I thought of MS is because my father in law had it. I'm in Dorset. Generally healthy - never get colds or bugs.

Thanks - just trying to stay sane while I wait for my appointment to come through.

I've been running various distances for many years now and in April this year ran the london marathon. I'm a member of the local leisure centre so I also do a mix of classes - spin, circuits, body pump etc. Last year I had a strange "injury" - both legs went numb on the inside. I had blood tests and they came back ok. Only lasted about 10 days and then went away so I didn't bother going back to the docs. The numbness has come back - pins & needles in my toes and finger tips, the inside of each lower leg feel numb and both knees/thighs feel very tight and sort of "clammy". My gp thinks its Meralgia paraesthetica but when I looked it up on google it mentions numbness in outer thigh which I haven't got. Currently waiting for appointment with neurologist and at the same time worried sick about it being something else (multiple sclerosis?) No pain anywhere apart from a bit of lower back ache but am generally fit and healthy. Anyone had similar experience?
