hamstring tendonitis

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 10:29

Not yet. Hamstrings were aching again yesterday but still think it's better than before.

May have found an easy win my side. It never occurred to me before this thread that the issue might be due to the compression of the hamstring on the chair, I just assumed it was due to the contraction due to having legs bent all the time. I've lowered my chair a bit so it's a little lower than the recommended level to create less pressure on the muscle and this seems to have improved the situation quite a bit for now ....!

I also massively struggle with this. I have a quick walk every hour or so but often have to stand at my desk to reduce the ache. Any further suggestions appreciated! Anything nutritional or further stretching that could help ... pain is mid to high hamstring.

Next training program

I've just followed the RW ultimate sub 4mile training program and ran 3:57 relatively comfortably.

I've read that sticking to the same style of program doesn't lead to long term development and also the RW sub 3:45 seems very similar to the sub 4 so am looking to use a new program.

I enjoy variety in my runs (the previous program had speed/hills and threshold running every week) and am happy to do a peak milage of around 55 miles in a 16-20 week program.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance.

Skiing as a cross training

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 11:42

Away for a few days skiing, trying to convince myself of the value of the cross training (for a spring marathon) as going to struggle to get any running time in and lost a week before xmas due to illness.

This week meant to do intervals (done), 7M easy, threshold (hoping to fit this in somewhere), 3M easy and a 10km race (will be able to do on sunday).

Can I somewhat 'guilt-free' miss the two easy sessions? I ski around 4 hours a day at an intermediate level.

Sugar or blood pressure drop?

Posted: 29/12/2014 at 14:58

I get fevers and feel sick for quite significant periods after running if I dont do my nutrition properly before/during/after the run. Recent example was this weekend, did 13 miles which isn't abnormally long for me, but I didn't eat breakfast before. Sickness I think due to acids created when running (and food absorbs them) and fevers are low blood sugar.

Sub 50min 10k/Sub 1h 50 half marathon

Hi all - please feel free to delete me from the table! Have fallen off this website due to work load!

On the plus news ... Richmond HM in October I ran 1:44:40. I followed the RW sub 1:50 half marathon schedule, found increasing to 5 sessions a week helped. Also compared tot he Hackney Half in the summer, the conditions were perfect.

Next target - Paris Marathon sub 4hr. Following the RW schedules again.

Best of luck all.
