Damn calves!

Posted: 27/07/2012 at 09:40

i have pain in my left half and been told its because my knee doesnt fall over my foot like it should but to the side. Iv been told to make sure my calf is always well stretched before and after runs and never run without a knee support on or skins on to try and keep my knee in alignment. Did 12,5 yesterday and used my massage rolling pin after to and seem ok today. i picked mine up for £1 in john lewis sale, didnt know you could get something so cheap from that shop. lol

is it possible

I started running in 2006 as a dare which at nottingham half in 2010 i made a deal with my son  it be my last race for a year. This race i did 2hour 4min. A year off became 20 months due to personal circumstances and no race to focus on meant no training. 3 month ago i entered this year robinhood and london kilomarathon, so training commence.

Iv always had a dream of doing under 2 hour half but never happened even though i can do 10km in about 54mins back then. in last 2 weeks iv knocked 5 mins off a 12m run. yesterday i did 12.5m in 2hour 11. does anyone think its possible to do half in 2 hours with only 9 weeks till race day and if so tips on how.

At mo in my head im thinking stay behind 2 hour pace maker for as long as possible as usually start off fast so i not be in others way.

sports bra

Posted: 27/07/2012 at 09:24

on wednesday i purchased a sports bra which i was measured for at a well known sports store who focus on running. I then went on 12.5 mile run yesterday wearing it. After the run i jumped in shower and that was when pain hit, the bra has left to blisters. Do i take bra back, see if it just adjusting to my body shape or what. Iv took photos of them but now burst and look like burns .

I seem to get a tight calf while running then really painful afterwards. I always stretch after and been using a rolling pin on my calf muscle which makes a big difference. Any suggestions of things I can do to stop it occurring. It seems more painful if I run rather than jog

thanks for this is made me urge to go dr about my foot. Itskilling today as ran yesterday morning and danced night away last night. Started on long run in july got told it was a sprained foot. if was then why still hurts to walk in some shoes and run. the most comfy shoes at min is my trainers as got the support around them. I use old running shoes as general when know longer fit for purpose. so always very supportive. ring dr this week if im going to run a marathon next year

First half marathon in 2 weeks and injured

Posted: 02/10/2011 at 09:16

My first half i entered i never ran as ended up on crutches 3 weeks before hand. i out running and fell injuring achillies. ended up on crutches for 9 weeks and then physio for 6. o my first half took place 5 month later on my home turf instead. A little set back may not be worth long time injury. they loads of halfs out there. get well soon.xx

why can people get in year after year

Its a small one so no they isnt and i dont have time to raise thousands of pounds being a single working mum to a disabled child. training take place when he goes school and me starting work. Speaking to someone at kilomarathon charitys have to pay out loads for a place in london with a few year contract. Thats why they need thousands raised to cover there own cost before the gain owt. The atmosphere in london fantastic as been down before to watch it. Nottingham full marathon there is no atmosphere when you leave half stage. thinking about edingbrough

 Its many people dream to run the streets of london (including my own). I yet again have been turned down and i was so up set as really wanted to do it for the charity that helps me with my child by giving me rest bite even if its a couple of hours. I usually run in this time to de stress.

I believe to make things fair you should only be offered a ballot place every 5 years, especially as scrapped the 6th year deffo in. In the mean time if people want to run then they should  do it for charity. People who say got in 1,2,3 years on a trot and likes of thousands of others who getting up set with rejection. Once every 5 years is not being greedy and give the oppotunity to others who may want to do it for personal reasons.

Im sorry but still up set as had my heart set on it but looks like i be having may half term in scotland. All i want to do is say thank-you for all they done for my son and small charitys need funding.
