    Gutted, on the injury bench after such a huge high - out for at least 8 weeks with a stress fracture - not happy and spiralling into depression rather quickly 😢

    So a little update - I know it’s supposed to be weekly, however - I’m now suffering from depression having gotten a stress fracture in my pelvis. I never realised how beneficial the running really was for me, until I couldn’t do it. I’m gutted as at the moment, I’m still in bed rest - definitely no running for a while, and my walking is more like a fast rest. Physio is starting at the end of next week, here’s hoping I’m not out for to long 🤞

    I’m so pleased - I did it my first half marathon! Not as slow as I thought I would be either...

    I am buzzing - I only went and did it! My first half completed even with an injury! Originally I was aiming for 3 hours, I had accepted that I was going to be slower because of said injury - final chip time 3 hours 6 minutes. I’m now treating myself with lots of salty baths and no running for a couple of days - saying that I have walked over 10k today (the day after my half) am I mad??

    So I’m doing my first ever half with a injury (not ideal I know) I’ve raised to much in sponsorship to not do it. So my motto for next weekend will be

    Run if I can, walk if I have to, Crawl when necessary but get over that finish line!

    On the plus side my physio has said I’m ok to do it, and with that in mind I’m off for a gentle 2 mile Jeff!

  • So my back injury wasn’t actually my back, it was a pulled hamstring - still in a little pain but the physio has said I’m ok to do a short run tonight, ahead of my half Marathon next weekend.
    That runnon the weekend will be jeffed and very slow - but I’ve raised to much in sponsorship not to do it. The fear of letting everyone down is bigger than the fear of hurting me even more!

  • A gentle week - mainly due to injury, 3 weeks until my first half, a last long run planned for next weekend. The rolling, massage and easy gentle runs until the big day...

    I’ve overdone it - had a gentle 5k run on Thursday and have promptly put my back out after I slipped off a kerb - no long run today, and now fully resting ready for a long run next weekend.

    I Need some advice - i think I've started to develop an ITB issue, my hip area on one side is really achy, does anyone have any tips on how to stretch this out properly.

    On a positive note, I managed a very slow 10 miles yesterday - my furthest run ever!

    Oh My God! I ache, I ran my furthest ever yesterday (10 miles). I'm feeling so pleased with it on the one hand, but on the other I am wondering how the hell I'm going to reach 12 in 2 weeks time. This Half marathon training is going to kill me I swear....

    What a fab week, received my 100k medal, increased my distance by going up a group with my running club, and I’ve started to do ladder training (kind of hill sprints) to help me improve further - 10 mile solo run to come this week, hopefully I’ll manage it!
