Big G, sounds like a really tough day at the hospital, I can understand how painful it must have been for you. Do you still feel a big need to get answers and explanations for what happened? I really hope you can get back to running soon as it must be frustrating not having that available as a way to relax.
Mamafox, maybe a dogs home is what you should be starting up then instead of a HCB business! It seems odd that someone would want to abandon such a young Springer Spaniel, has it been claimed yet? I'm glad the dogs opposite didn't find it before you did. I've decided to stick with my Saucony Rides for the marathon. I was blaming them for the tendon niggles but I think these were more self inflicted by my lacing. Weirdly, all niggles have gone now, despite having taken no rest from running. I've discovered that all runner shoes are so much more comfortable when I wear them straight from the airing cupboard! Must be something to do with feeling warm.
Annesofie, glad you were able to manage 3 miles with the groin ache. Are there any exercises you can do to help it?
Iain, great that you are back running. Do you have any races booked for this year?
I did a parkrun yesterday in place of a speed session. I struggled with the pace in the last 2 miles - not sure if this as was running solo or just tired legs. Bit disappointed with the time (20:15) as had hoped to dip under 20 again. But was at least 1st female and broke my age category course record (it's a fairly new parkrun!) so not all bad. 20 today in the wind and cold, averaging 8mm pace. Had to start early as needed to drop littlest koala at his grandparents in Kent after. My mum's not the best of cooks and I came home feeling a bit light headed as didn't eat much!! But have made up for it now
