Getting back in saddle

Thanks. it was lovely to be back out running.

Perhaps run alternate days? Give your body time to recover? I keep thinking back to when I was fitter too!
I am aiming to run 3/4 times a week until January.

Hi Si, well done on your run. It will get easier ( that's what I'm telling myself anyway!)
I managed 60 minutes very gentle running at lunchtime.
Yoga tomorrow and the either parkrun or threadmill session at the weekend.
When's your next run?

Parkruns are great - do you have one nearby?
I hope to do general base training before marathon training in the new year.
I also need to enter some races! I have entered the Reading half which I did last year. Hope to do 60 minutes tomorrow!
Good luck.

Hello everyone!

Looking forward to this in October. I had to withdraw from VLM due to hamstring's healing now but been 7 weeks of little/no running. Boring!

Sorry to hear others are suffering with injury problems- they really get in the way of training/racing dont' they?!Be interested to hear what races everyone is planning to do in the build up to Abo -

Many thanks in advance and good luck with your training.

Hey Siony!
That's great news. Well done. So pleased you enjoyed yourself and that it all worked out ok. I watched it on tv! I'm in for 2013 and am waiting to hear if I have a place in New York in the autumn. Exciting!
Happy running.

Hamstring pull

Sorry to hear about your hamstring. I hurt mine in the Bath half and was unable to run so walked to the finish from mile 3 hours! As a result I am unable to run VLM...

It's 5 weeks later and I've just been able to do my first 25 a very slow process for me.

 If you don't have any pain that sounds good. Mine was a bad tear.

Have you seen a physio?

Take care

Hi Stony,
Good idea.
I'm very disappointed not to be able to run this year, but know there will be other races to look forward to if I let my body recover...
Best of luck!

Calves and Thyroid

Posted: 08/04/2012 at 19:52

I hope I can join in too.

My thyroid is underctive following my first pregnancy 14 years ago. I have 3 lovely children now. I take 200 mcg a day and thankfully have very few problems.

My daiky dose was reduced to 150 a while ago as my blood test showed the levels were too high and I didnt question it at the time. This was a mistake.Gradually I started to feel less alert and a bit low so I visited my GP who thankfully listened o me and put me back on my normal dose.

Just waiting for blood test results to chiming can sty on the dose that I feel better on. I would much rather be the higher end of the normal range.

It takes about 3 weeks for th thyroxine to take effect in my experience.
