Hi Silver. I wish I had seen it as well.
Had a Deep Heat bath and leg feels a lot better. Still not sure how long I should leave it before going out again. I know I could run tomorrow but know it would hurt afterwards and worried what long term damage I could be doing.
Had a good club run, we did about 3.5 miles there was only 5 of us The Run England group is more laid back than DRR, we have abit of a laugh and only ever do around the 3 miles as can only last from 5.15 - 6.00pm
I find it quite amusing how the two clubs I run with vary. Like I say Run England pretty laid back and we always have a quick run then stop and do warm ups all together then run then same at the end
DRR straight off running and push on as hard as you can, never done over 5 miles with them but to be honest that suits me fine as they start at 7 and happy to be finished within the hour. They have a nice little thing where we all shake hands at the end where we all meet up and say well done nice little touch I reckon
Stripes - sounds like the leg is mending, only go out when you are 100% sure and then make it a slow easy one to test it
Mal - enjoy you run wid your sis
Silver - So? did you look at Silverstone HM?
Silver there is no way we would run together anyhow, I am a great believer when racing get in the zone and run at your own pace. Ours would be totally different, I am 5'3 and have ickle legs, I believe you said you are over 6" your one stride would be 3 to me I bet hehe
It might be called a race, but believe me I will not be racing round the circuit. Hopefully my training of longer runs nice and slow will see me get over the finish line and you could be there cheering me over
hahahahahaha yes thats it, a naked Jack and Jill at the finish line that would keep us both happy
What the dog houses hahahahahaahahaah jk
I wonder what we can google tomorrow and post some piccies
Well hopefully I am off soon, its my aunties 90th B/day today so all the family are going over to Dunstable to see her and have a meal
OK so where is everyone today
Auntie Joan had a very enjoyable 90th Birthday Meal bless her
Well I am finishing at 1.30 today so will be out running this afternoon and all good intentions for Sat and Sun cant wait I need to get my mileage up for this month
Whats everyone else upto?
Oh my hubby has got me a headtorch for Xmas whoop whoop
Yeah its a lovely day here too, going to run from home this pm then prob do the ressy run over the weekend
I think 2 weeks is plenty of time to recover why not just enter it anyhow its only 15quid and then if you are not upto it your not much lost
Don't wear one of those no hehe very interesting ..... not sure yet how the headtorch is going to work with the cap lol
The joys of working flexi time ah
oh dam thats a shame no sorry my hubby has way smaller feet which is a shame cuz he prob would have like them
Wonder how Stripes leg is doing?
Stripes? We'll be ringing A&E's all over the country:
"Have you got a runner there? ... Er.... Name of Stripes?.....Um.....Bit tricky to locate if it's not his actual name, no I see....er...how about any running types with limbs dropping off? ... "
Booey and Silver I'm here too.
Sorry I've not been on. Been out looking for my legs. They buggered off whilst I was asleep
Well done on the run. Shame about the trainers. I've got some Kanadias that I have yet to wear. I bought them in a sale for £30 because I had entered a 10k trail race on Sunday week. Not sure whether I will be doing it now though
Leg is a lot better but not ventured back out yet, bit scared how it will go. May try a gentle couple of miles on the treadmill tomorrow.
Have you entered Silverstone yet?
Am not sure what to do about Liverpool Half in March, was going to enter when I got some spare cash but not feeling very confident after last weeks disasters.
You are right. The Kanadias do come up small. I had to go up a whole size.
Hope you are right about not finding the break a problem. I wonder how long you would have to stop for before the training wore off?
Not totally sure of the Liverpool route but 99% certain it doesn't go anywhere near the ground because it definitely goes to Sefton Park which is to the South of the town centre and the Anfield area is to the North. Getting to Sefton Park may well involve going up Parliament Street which is one hell of a hill, I've walked that way back to my mates house in Wavertree and judging by last Sundays efforts I will struggle to run up it even if I have two good legs
Ha Ha. The Beauty of trail shoes is that they are supposedly built for any running style due to the uneven nature of the surfaces you will be running on, therefore no need for a gait analysis so Sports Direct or JJB(where I got mine) will do.
Its weird that all my troubles have started since I had my new trainers after the gait analysis which does make me wonder if I would have been better off with my £30 Sports Direct specials
