Tom - sorry to hear you had such a bad run today, specially since you have had a good few sessions that have gone so well. sometimes we have to take the rough with the smooth. I guess it's par for the course...the weather didn't help at all I think...

I'm getting impatient and want to start thinking about running but I know it will be detrimental to me so I will resist the urge and let my body heal...

He told me that it was a worst case scenario if I didn't take it easy and follow the guidelines set out for a speedy recovery then it could take upto 6 months.. He said that it would take a few weeks to settle down and heal and then I can start to rebuild things. One step at a time. I might start to follow the same plan that Tom is on..

The main issue is I'm on my feet all day.. I am a postie so I walk about 40 miles a week so that will slow recovery.. Cycling and gentle stretching will also help.

Knight rider - the physio said it could take upto 6 months to heal completely. I have been given strict instructions to not run for at least 6 weeks and when I do start up again I have to jog first and resist the urge to belt out fast miles.. I'd rather take time off to heal and get back to it when I'm ready rather then run and cause further issues...

Shades - Yeah I've spoken to my manager and I'll get some help from the company to get some proper supportive walking shoes. The scary thing is that if I don't remove the cause and start treating it, it could get so bad that surgery would be needed to rectify it. The physio did ask if I've had achillies issues cause he said they were so tight that they were clicking when he manipulated them.. Got to go back in 10 days to have another session..

SK - unfortunately the physio said that it can take 3 months or longer depends on the person. I have got a few things to add to my daily routine. Icing for 20 min after I get home from work to reduce any swelling and then at night I apply heat and gently massage them to try ease the tight calves.

Evening folks... Well I went to the physio today and the prognosis isn't too good. I've got tibialis posterior tendonitis in both legs due to ill fitting work shoes. I guess I need to stick to the bike to maintain my fitness. Just hope it heals quickly and I can resume training soon..

Morning shadies..

Big_G - well done. Some really quick miles in there. Plus you beat lat years time..

Well I'll find out today what my injury is a it have an appointment with the physio. I tried running around with the LO yesterday and it hurt like crazy so at the moment, running anywhere is a no go..
I'll let you know what the prognosis is later.. Have a good day folks..

10 min miling downhill? I think even injured in can't do that... I tried to run at 8 min/mile and I felt like I was fast walking. I so want to get out and run but I have to wait and see what the physio says on Monday. Hopefully it's knotted calves or something equally repairable.. I NEED to run... What's on the cards for tomorrow Tom?
