Migraines sound horrible, glad I've never suffered with them.
My step-daughter is mega excited about Christmas and she is a 21 year old trainee paramedic! Not sure she has worked out Santa isn't real yet either
Hope you got to go out Mal and Silver.
My plans have suffered a serious blow. Felt very stiff on Wednesday morning after the treadmill run on Tuesday so I made an appointment with the Sports Therapist.
Went yesterday after work. Turns out I have damaged a muscle in my lower right leg which I didn't even know existed. He did all kinds of tests on me and eventually found the cause of all the trouble. Once found he said he would 'work on it' Oh boy that wasn't fun. There was basically a lump of scar tissue which he wanted to break up with massage. The pain each time he hit it was pretty bad but eventually started to ease as he worked through it. He has given me some stretches and strengthening exercises for it and told me not to run for two weeks so Sunday was immediately out of the window. Gutted about that but the way I feel today I doubt I would have run anyway. Feel like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards but he did say I would feel sore for a couple of days.
My main worry now is that I am gonna be way behind the Half Schedule but will have to see how things go when I get going again
Poor Stripes, that sounds awful particularly the enforced two week rest. I'm really sorry to hear Sunday is out too. Hope you won't be too far behind your schedule, how tight will it be with the break? My younger sister is a newly qualified Physiotherapist and some of the things she has described sound excrutiating. Hope it all helps and you're back on form as soon as possible.
Silver, shame you also suffer from the dreaded migraines. Mr Mal has tried Sumatriptin but it hasn't worked for him. He's tried lots in the past but has tentatively been given a new diagnosis and prescription, hope it helps.
So...running....I did get out for a run, couldn't find my fleece and borrowed Mr Mal's I looked ridiculous, particularly as I'd squeezed into a pair of my sister's running tights which are a size too small. What a look! I did my usual route in 9 seconds less than the last time but I really didn't enjoyed it, felt rubbish all the way around. Ah well, I have a 5k on Sunday planned.
Thanks for the Birthday wishes Silver. Gotta earn that Birthday cake somehow. Not much chance of putting my feet up but I'm happy anyway.
Oh my goodness what a brilliant time on your 10.1k I am really hoping I will just make it around that distance by March but certainly not even thinking about doing it in under an hour! Well done. Also congratulations to your willpower for resisting that bacon sarnie!
Well done on the extended run Mal and Happy Birthday
Silver, well done on the 10k. Think you would have deserved the bacon sandwich!
Leg still a bit sore but nowhere near as bad as it was Thursday.
Very frustrated, especially when I had a full race report on the Edwinstowe 10k from my mate
Aw Stripes, didn't your friend lie outrageously for you? I'm sure it was a hellish race really! Good your leg is a bit better, you'll be racing off into the distance soon.
Managed to accidentally run further because I was running with my sister, she used the route lots when she was training for her marathon so she picked a pretty (hilly!) 5k from it. She got a touch carried away!
Agree with Stripes. Silver. you deserved that bacon sarnie!
Hi Folks, blimey so much to catch up on
Had a good day friday at the clothes show, didn't buy an awful lot and not that many people and stands there but to be honest it was the same last year, people just don't have the money
We had the in-laws with us for a week but they went to other sons yesterday so we have our house back they are no trouble at all but its just nice to get back to normal hehe
Didn't manage to get the LSR over the weekend it was just to manic, but managed my usual short route of 3.5 miles Sat and Sun, so at least I managed something. Also did the club run Thurs night of around 4.5 miles.
Silver - well done on your longer run over the weekend, I noticed y/day it was defo a colder run for me took me longer to warm up......wonder how we are all going to get on in the serious cold
Mal - also well done on your run, at least you did it even though you didn't enjoy it
Stripes - sorry to hear your leg is still a problem, although you now know what the prob is and having it treated. Think positive that the 2 weeks rest will sort it out and then you will be back out enjoying your running. I don't think it will hamper your HM training its still away off and you were doing fine
*waves* to everyone else
Sorry Mal forgot to say Happy belated Birthday wishes hope you had a lovely day
Its cold here today I really don't want to see any snow
Where are you lot I have been busy at work so am guessing you all busy too
Got my club run tonight
I weighed myself this am and was 10'6 which surprised me as I felt like I had been a real bloater over the past week hehe I need to get a LSR in this weekend that always kick starts my weight loss
Still umming and rrrring whether to do the Up & Running 10K in MK this Sunday its 20quid on the day which is a tad steep and I can just go out and do 10K by myself a race is always good for a push on though
I have my work xmas bash Fri night, all paid for with partner and overnight. Then Sat night supposedly running club xmas meal but still unsure if this is happening
I ran a slow 2k. Feeling ok but am surrounded by man flu, I'm-too-tired-itis and a baby with a chesty cough!
I think it's been a bit quiet too but it's a busy time of year for everyone.
You made me laugh!
I'm doing another gentle run on Thursday then devising a proper plan, any tips from you all about getting to 10k? I've gathered I need (and want) a LSR but aside from that what do I need?
Hope your feeling better today Silver never suffered with migraine's thankfully
Mal hows your lot doing any better? Well done on your 2K
Well I didn't go to club run last night I was home about 4 and it was tipping it down so I made the decision to have a treadmill run instead I did 2.5 miles and god was it boring lol I wasn't feeling quite right last night and after I had eaten and showered I sat down to catch up with Garrows Law and fell asleep just before 9 thats just not like me at all. Hubby woke me at 9.30 and told me to go to bed, which I did and fell straight off again until this morning feel great today so I obviously needed it.
So I shall get out with Run England club today at 5.15 then DRR tomorrow night
Mal - do you have a 10K race and when is it? Sorry I can't remember I would say you just need to plod on and increase your distance abit at a time. With your hectic life, baby and everything I dunno how you get out at all so don't be hard on yourself
