Don't knock yourself, you are a runner and have proved it. You have probably just done a bit more than you should for now so if I were you, get an appointment asap with a physio. Good luck and happy running!

Five Year Plan - help please

Sounds like your training is well on track! What are your targets for the half?

Sensible decision or giving in?

Giving in.

As SteveG2 and SpaRunner said. See another physio and strengthen yourself. This is just a guess but perhaps since you have been running for so long you have reached a point where you are fitter than your strength can take if that makes sense. You could emerge from this as a better runner. I would highly recommend pilates too, that really helped me when I had some injury issues - it gives you the core strength you need when you are tired and need to maintain your form.

Don't give up, you clearly enjoy it and 46 is not too old. Solve this current problem and you'll be setting new PBs.

swelling on the knees

Best see a physio for some proper advice. You could work on getting the swelling down but unless you sort the reason why they got swollen then you'll likely be back to square one again very quickly.

Ha ha!! Thanks peter.. I am off to get myself a foam roller.. Fab idea.. I am willing to try anything as just want to be able to run again and get rid of the stiff / aching feeling.. I appreciate your comment.. Incidentally - what colour hat?!

You can surprise me, mixed off cuts would be great!

My foam roller is a Triggerpoint one. It's a bit pricey and shorter than usual but is very useful as 1 it is easier to store being small and 2 it has a very solid core meaning it won't distort like a regular foam roller and hence will last a lot longer. Also it comes in orange which is one of my favourite colours!

Forgot to add, get advice on how to get the best from your roller, they can inflict plenty of pain and perhaps not help, you need to identify where the problems are and know how to treat them. A physio would be best or a good pilates tutor. Pilates is also well worth considering if you don't already, I love it and it really helps.

Fran5 - do you use a foam roller? If not, it might be worth considering. Assuming there isn't anything 'wrong' with you, it may be just tightness in the muscles which certainly could occur after doing too much. I swear by mine (literally sometimes as use can be quite uncomfortable!).

In the meantime, should you decide to take Dave's advice, can I have a bobble hat please?

Trick or treat?

Kids have probably got as much to fear from friends and family members as strangers. It might be a form of begging but as long as they realise that it is a special occasion (which they do as it is only once a year) then I hardly think it does kids any harm. It's just a bit of harmless fun, people need to lighten up a bit.

Trick or treat? Humbug!

One of my most memorable aircraft moments was with a Concorde. When I worked at Heathrow, one of my shift start times meant I'd be in the staff carpark around the time of a Concorde take off. I'd just got out of the car and was near the fence adjacent to the far end of the runway when I heard it coming. It was a slightly foggy day so I only saw it as it passed, still quite low, afterburners on and roaring off into the cloud. I'll never forget that. Now we've lost the Vulcan we need a Concorde back in the air, the skies are pretty boring...

How much of your life do you waste looking at s**te on the internet?

Far too much in my case...

What's with the massive video advert halfway down the threads?

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!

Are the RW forums running slowly?
