Tom wow that's an impressive run, well done..sounds like a hectic week ahead... I think you will smash the sub 3 target...

i managed to get out for my 3rd run of this week albeit only 3 miles on the treadmill.i did 20 min spin style cycling and then got on the treadmill and did the first mile at 9:50, second mile was 7:30 and I pushed a little and picked the pace upto 6:20. Was realy good to get that pace back..will see how the week pans out...

morning all...

Speedy - good news that you can continue running. I hated hearing those words "stop running till it heals" i might as well have stopped breathing lol..

Well this week has really been a good week. I have managed to get out twice this week once monday and on wednesday again. was only a 5 miler but it felt really good. I had to keep note of my pace as i have to resist the urge to pick the pace up. I was quite happy to run at around 7min/mile but have to keep it slow till i have built up the strength in my legs again. might do a few mile on the dreadmill tonight just to have a softer landing than the road..Good luck with your long run Tom..

Morning all...
Shades - I was getting a little frustrated with not behind able to get out but I did have the bike trainer so I was able to do some excersise. I was a little tender yesterday but I think it was just general stiffness.. I'll go out today for another meander around the streets and see how I feel..

Evening folks... Well good news. I went out for a wee run this evening and managed 4.3 miles and "touch wood " no pain. I'll take it easy and ease back into it... Plus I've joined a gym today to help with my core strength.. Woohoo..

Barbie - last year i ran a 1:25:18 half PB and later that year went on to run a 2:58 marathon so in my books a 1:24 half should be ok...

Well today was a really good day... I got my running gear on and went out for a gentle run. I ran 4.5 miles completely pain free so it looks like the rest has helped. Now to take things slowly for a couple of weeks and then i can start to rebuild my training..WOOHOO 

Tom - excellent PB well done..

Evening all, Hope you are all well... I sat down and calculated that it has been nearly 5 weeks since i last went out on a run. I haven't been able to get to the physio for a follow up appointment but have a 2nd week off next week so hope to fit in a visit then. I might try get out for a slow 3-4 miles on monday morning as I have been playing football with the kids this week and haven't had any pain so I'll try run and hope for the best..

Tom - Glad to see you back on your feet. Best of luck for tomorrow, hope all goes well.

During my long runs I have started using a camelbak.. It took me a little while to get used to it but since it is only 1l it doesn't weigh too much so I hardly notice it on my back..plus I tend to add 2 caffiene gels to the water which gives me the carbs in my water too and saves me from having to carry any gels...I cant run with a water bottle in my hand, drives me insane.

Evening all...

Tom - welcome to the injury bench...hopefully you should be back running before too long... I am taking all the advice and resisting the urge to run till I know I am 100% healed. ATM I woukd say I'm about 75%of the way there.. Thank god for indoor bike trainers...

Sorequads - fantastic time, well done..

KK - fantastic PB. Enjoy the moment..next goal sub 1:40 ????.

SK - that sounds like a good run. Nice even splits..I always find it is easier to push that little bit harder when you run with someone...
