Re: Running ... again

Just back from 6.5 miles. Going to try for an 8 or 9-miler over Xmas.

Re: Running ... again

Nice one.

Went out last Wednesday and my bloody left calf went.  it goes a lot if I think about it.  Feels like the whole muscle is tearing.  Feels a bit better now so will try again on Wednesday.

Re: Running ... again

Just done 8.5 miles. Longest yet. I reckon there's a few more to come.

Re: Running ... again

Nice one TB.

I just went to the gym at work as it was dead - pulled me bloody calf again.  It felt fine and I went from walking to very light jog slowly and it popped.  Arse.

Ended up walking for 20 mins and then 20 mins on the bike before a 2 x sets of 4 weights things.  was doing them great big rope things making snakes and lobbing medicine balls at the wall and catching them.

Feel good now.  Apart from calf.  Need to give a good two week break from running.

Re: Running ... again

Did a 6.5 mile run and decent MTB ride over Xmas and then got a f***ing cold. Throat's been like I'm back on the fags. Bit better today so going to have a 'jog' for a couple of miles. See how I go....

Re: Running ... again

My daughter wants to do the castle Howard Children’s. triathlon later this year. I would love to do the grown up one, so we could pose with medals. Every time I run though my hamstrings are really sore - probably linked to degenerative discs in my back. Trying daily stretching my it ain’t making much difference. Am toying with the idea of yoga or Pilates.

Re: Running ... again

Did 6.3 miles on Friday night. Booze-free evening after and woke up on Saturday feeling acemans.
Stupidly drank white wine last nigjht and feel like f***ing death today.
Am definitely binning booze for a bit. Feel like I'm getting less from it tbh.

Re: Running ... again

^  This

Two weeks clean at present.  Injury free also.  The booze was a factor in the injuries as it is a muscle relaxant.

Four miles friday eve and four miles saturday morning.  Well happy.

Re: Running ... again

Four miles last night on the tow path - right calf went - so much for my booze related injury theory.  Arse.  However I think I've been doing to much too soon.

I'll gym it tomorrow and avoid the treadmill.

Re: Running ... again
