I have been on diazepam since Friday. I have been suffering with a very tight middle back since January and following various physio sessions to loosen it off I went to the GP with a view to getting muscle relaxants, which these are.
They have completely messed up my running this week with anything faster than 8.30 pace feeling like a big effort. Last day of them today, back is possibly 10% looser at best!
Hope everyone gets their niggles sorted soon.
Not posted for a wee bit, more lurking but still plodding away with running. Club tonight fartlek session which I do like.
Is it possible you're at your limit ?10M progression out and back along the seafront this morning was supposed to be 12 but i missed the alarm and still had to squeeze that in. Did the last 5k in about 23mins which felt like it was somewhere around threshold effort.
Yes, no doubt work is contributing somewhere. When I was off Friday-Sunday last week it felt so much better then come Monday afternoon it was solid again.
It does however feel a fair bit better now and more like I just need a sports massage to iron it out.
I managed an lsr last of 12 miles. Kept the pace and effort very very low at 8.40mm/126bpm. Not sure what i'll do today, possibly a light session as I have a big run sunday.
Muddy, he posted 1.17.36 on Strava. I am not certain on his exact age, however the first comment on his strava post for the race was someone wishing him happy 40th birthday Vet. His comment under the race was 'bad day, must be my age catching up with me'. So I am going out on a limb here and saying he turned 40 over the last few days.
Yes, it was a big old session, but mentally was much easier than a straight 12 at mp. Physically, the 1 mile intervals didn't help much as they broke up momentum and meant starting again on increasingly tiring legs. Obviously they did provide some cv recovery though.
Tommy, sounds like a decent outing and solid time for the effort involved.
Stick with it, Mace. You'll regret it come 28th April if you let it go now.
Well done, Skinny and daughter!
7 miles at recovery effort first thing, spin tonight.
Great time Muddy and well done. I'm sure the official time wont be too different. I was feeling quite good about my pace until I saw your entry on Strava so cheers for that! DT -target for the half is 7:15m/m. Because I only had around an hour and a half to play with I set out quick and just turned it into a bit of a training session. I've done 8 at HMP before so thought I'd try and hold on for 10 and see what happens. Was slightly under but that's ok, didnt feel too drained after it either. HR was pretty high throughout though. Great time McFlooze. If it was as windy there as it was here then well done.
