Skinny - I have the 35 which I can reccomend. Like you I just wanted the basics and it does that well. Its also quick to find satellites which my old one wasn't and I found very annoying.DT - I think you asked what I was doing to help recovery when I said my recovery was a bit slow. The answer is nothing! However I've sheepishly started doing some stretching and foam rolling when I can be bothered. Which is still not very often.I dont know if it's due to the heat but I've been very sluggish in my running over the last couple of weeks. Given up half way through on my last couple of attempts at a session. Possibly due to not adjusting pace to compensate for the heat. You'd think after 12 years of running I might have learnt that lesson, but apparently not
MRI scan has thrown up a stress fracture of my sacrum. A fairly unusual diagnosis outside old age and running. on a positive it's not something mechanical or overly complex and will just fix with rest. Recovery period is 7-12 weeks and ive done 10. He's happy for me to keep running as i am and to very slowly progress it. The risk comes if i lose patience, feel good and up the anti too soon, particularly with longer runs.
Skinny - if you don't take your phone with you, you won't get the messages ? But if you already took your phone with you then you could have tracked the runs with it ...
My foot was giving my grief towards the end of the week. I tried the gel pads but i think they made it worse, causing a bit more compression around my metatarsals. Fairly sure it is a nerve thing as I was prodding around the top of my calf and felt pain shoot through my foot.
Skinny: Tesco last July...a woman, probably in her seventies, was pushing one of those trolleys shaped like a car with two youngsters on board...and went into the back of me, literally taking my legs from under me. Landed on my back and found out a few days later that I had fractured my sacrum. A particular shame as was running reasonably and a few days before had scored 77% on WAVA when running 21:xx for 5k, which was not too bad at 65 and expected that there was more to come. And enjoy your new toy!
Skinny, yes I have probably read the same study. I just need to make sure I let it repair well and then resolve the imbalance. Injuries like this, there isn't a great deal to help it along beyond time, however it isn't as complex as a nerve or ligament problem.
In terms of rest, what i have read re stress fractures is that once they have healed to the point where functionality can be tolerated without more than minor discomfort then running for example to a moderate level will help it along. One of the biggest stresses on it is simply sitting for long periods.
Glad you like the watch, they are pretty user friendly. You should sign up to strava now!!
Tommy, sounds like the bike work has kept you in pretty decent shape.
Alehouse, nice kilometerage, I hope Pete doesn’t see it as he won’t be happy he’s not the only K in the village ;-)
Skinny, I’m waiting for some HR stats please :-)
