Really pleased the glute is
improving HPR. Definitely get back
to full fitness before worrying about pace.
Well done on a nice sounding MLR,
Unfortunately for me, I seemed to
have tweaked my back. It happened whilst at the bottom of a squat in the gym
yesterday. Very annoying to be put out of running whilst doing something to
keep myself injury free… It wasn’t anything I don’t do once a week, so not
quite sure what caused it. Maybe got sloppy on technique. Absolute agony
bending forward. And whilst there are plenty of ranges of motion that are ok,
some are ridiculously painful. Hopefully will get it seen to this afternoon. I
made the mistake of googling it – not a good idea. Looks like my first day off
SQ - DR Google is my best friend as well...If you must squat 400llbs these things will happen!!! I used to tweak my back often with squats with sloppy technique or overdoing weight. used to bounce back quite quick normally though - hope you get back to normal soon.
HA - I find if motivation is an issue you might need an easy week - body telling you something maybe..
Did 11 miles yesterday and foot discomfort was back after a few miles but never really got paintful....couple of days off for me again. so not too bad a news.
Stevemac - same here - weather is rubbish! - Nice pace though
HPR - cant beat a good sulk!
SQ - Ive become a bit of a back expert and done much research since having a ruptured disc in my back (15 years ago) and severe pain for about a year (could not stand for more than 5 mins at worst)...
Complicated area, compounded by the spinal cord which means any slight inflammation from slight muscle tears impinges on nerves causing pain, hence ibuprofen works so well for back pain.
So basically about getting swelling down and healing back muscles (and long term strengthening them)
Volteral gel I found excellent as well. - All my experience of course... Here's to a speedy recovery
AWC - Think of the wind as an extra bit of resistance training !
Thanks everyone for words of encouragement.
AWC - 3 min pb is bloody amazing - you cant have been trying in previous races then!
Another great time from Reg.. (although only satisfied LOL)
Macca Slacked off to cruise in at 1:20:32 - disappointing Macca - make an effort man!
Long run in the wind for me Saturday and shorter one sunday - felt like I was going backwards on times in the wind.....Day off today.
