Motivation

Posted: Yesterday at 19:50

Perhaps marathon running just isn't your cup of tea? How about targetting a 5/10k and getting into an appropriate training plan? If not, how about mixing it up with some other exercise and working towards a triathalon? It may also be that having finished your marathon your body needs a period of recuperation with mental fatigue hence your lack of motivation afterall you must have been motivated since marathon training takes a lot of commitment. So on that basis, congratulations! Give yourself a big pat on the back and a smug look, you've earned it!

Don't knock yourself either, celebrate your achievements and set a new goal, good luck!

Could use some hints

Core strength improvement will help, find a pilates class, can't recommend it enough. It will help with the aches and pains plus maintain your form when you tire helping to prevent injury.

Running, jumping, chucking (perhaps in a more technical fashion) and fighting. No more.

What is wrong with me?

Good news Kate, perhaps a break is what you needed. Don't ignore your foam roller though, it may hurt but it is your friend!

Things you want to say but can't

Bad news Muttley, hope you enjoy your freedom! You never know what's round the corner, at least now you'll have time to look.

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

I do hope so.

I know Norway has a lot of gas and oil reserves - about as much as the UK but only a 12th or so of the population ?
Iceland has geothermal power and fishing - and is basically the population of Leicester - so plenty of fish for everyone.
Switzerland - well it hasnt had to rebuild after world wars - and have you seen the price of toblerone and Lindt.

I'm not sure they're quite the same as the UK ?

But they have to pay for being in the EEA and accept free movement, two of the main things the leavers were against. We'll probably be the same if we want free trade with the EU so how exactly are we going to be better off??

It's a stupidity epidemic! 

A guy called Adam from Manchester was interviewed on TV this morning. he voted to Leave thinking that his vote wouldn't count and is now worried about the outcome.

Holy shit, the future of the country has been decided by cockwombles  like this 

 

I'll see your Adam and raise you a WHOLE FUCKING COUNTY.

They certainly won't see a penny. I really hope this all works out well and we wonder what it was we were all worried about, but...... I think we're screwed.

Your description above of where the pain is does sound like that after pushing really hard after a tough race, tight muscles. I read that you use a foam roller, that'll help if used properly and regularly but the root cause is likely your body complaining about doing things it's not used to. It'll ease with time and a slow build up, you'll get there, just be patient

Broken wrists :(

Oh no! Bad luck, hope you feel better soon!

Sounds like you are doing a bit too much too soon. Normally 5-6km then an 8? That's nearly a 50% increase in distance - this just sounds like fairly typical overuse pain. Have a look through the injury forum, loads of people in the same boat. Build up very slowly and no more than a 10% increase in time or distance. But you'll need to cut right back for a while until things settle down then start a slow build up again.

A t-shirt and a free entry in 2017?

Surely the 1,000,000 finisher could have been celebrated a bit better than that!

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

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!
