I hope the IC is comfy!


Could you shuffle up and let me join you on the IC please?! I’ve had a grumbly hip for a few weeks so haven’t done much running. I managed to get an appointment with a lovely physio and after much prodding and poking (ouch!) it was fortunately found to be not too serious. But it means no running until the next appointment in 3 weeks and if I’m very good about doing the exercises I’ve been given, I may be allowed to lace up the trainers again then! On the plus side it’s so nice to have something in the diary to look forward to! Happy running folks - I’ll be lurking here so no slacking while I’m gone!

I always feel better when I have a diagnosis and rehab plan to work with. 3 weeks will fly by 🙂

It will BC, and in the meantime I shall walk along the seafront instead!


It’s great that you got to see someone for expert advice Oldgirlruns. It sounds like it was a very thorough check up, and you now have something positive to do to improve your strength in the week areas.

Enjoy those squats! And we’ll be checking on you to make sure you are looking forward. 🙄

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Dexy5

Forward and up!


Well OGR you’ve picked a good time of year to be on the IC I suppose. But even so, I bet you’ll be itching to get out after your 3 weeks is up. It’ll fly by! Happy exercising in the meantime. 🥰

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Had a walk along the beach this morning which is always good for the soul! And saw Dexy and UTS out running so that’s a bonus!


Hope you get back to it in 3 weeks all the stronger! You might even benefit from the rest.

Thank you Fionamags - I’m hoping for the best!


You can have our space that we don’t need at the moment, I’ve left you some soft cushions to keep you cosy, hopefully you will soon be out there

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to WillowandSola

Thank you - if it’s too cosy I may not want to move again!

WillowandSolaGraduate10 in reply to Oldgirlruns

Then you can join me on my non IC and we can get fat together, I don’t know why we are still finishing Christmas chocolates but we are Seriously though, heal well and you will soon be back out running gently along the seafront

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to WillowandSola

I hear you Sola - I’ve just finished the Christmas cake and that was after I gave half of it away to my neighbours! Glorious on our coast today wasn’t it? Happy running!

WillowandSolaGraduate10 in reply to Oldgirlruns

It was beautiful, we are running tomorrow, car trouble stopped play today and Im planning on playing with zombies again lol


You’ve picked the right time of year, I think for the IC ❄️🌧

Great that you have a plan and a timetable. You’ll soon be back running 🐌🐢🏃🏻‍♀️💪

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to LottieMW

Thanks Lottie!


What a pain OGR! But at least you know what the issue is and what to do about it .

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to JonathanP

A pain it is JP! But yes, hopefully it will sort itself out over the next few weeks!


Oh my, so sorry to hear about your injury but really glad you've seen a physio. What a positive spin on your next meeting, like you I grab the smallest thing to add to the diary. I hope your time on the IC passes quickly and painlessly. Take care 🤗

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Grannyhugs

Thanks Grannyhugs!


What a pain, but at least you got to see somebody who was able to give a proper diagnosis, and it doesn't sound too serious. Wish you a very speedy recovery and return from the IC. It might be comfy - but not so comfy you want to stay there for ages.

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Birdlady64

Thank you Birdlady64! Yes, I must remember I’m only here temporarily and try not to get too used to it!


I’ve shuffled up to let you in 😂 I’ve just arrived ( calf strain on Tuesday 🤷🏼‍♀️😢) can’t say I like it here but nice to have your company .

Sorry, though, that the hip has sent you here and I hope it does heal quickly .

The weather is icy again so I wouldn’t be getting out anyway. Ironic that I was delaying my last run so I wouldn’t hurt myself with a fall and ended up here anyway 😂

These days I feel as though I should have a short recording of a ‘fanfare’ to play on the occasion of writing something on the calendar 😂😂


Oh I’m so sorry you’re on the IC Racing! Calf strains are sneaky things aren’t they, one minute all is well and the next - ping! And you’re out of action again. It’s always nice to have company of course but I hope you’re off and running again soon! But not if it’s icy - the little piece of titanium on my wrist is testament to how horrible it can be!

Hope your grumbly hip cheers up soon Oldgirlruns, I’ll do an extra few k’s just for you next time I venture out 👍

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Couchphoenix

Thanks Cp - I appreciate it!


You can have my spot. I plumped up the cushions before I left it on Monday. 🤪

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to nowster

Thanks nowster!


Sorry about you being on the IC, however, with the weather being the way it is, snow forecast for your area on Sunday, hopefully by the time you are back running the temperature won't be so low, enjoy your walks.

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Thank you Alan - we’re hoping the call for snow tomorrow doesn’t come to anything!


I still visit the couch to rest up my other now ouchy knee so will bring orange drizzle cake as we exercise

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to CaptFrey

Ooh lovely - though if I eat too much I’ll never get up from the couch!


Sorry to hear about your visit to the IC OGR enjoy the rest from running and enjoy the exercises in the warmth of your own home and 🤞by the time 3 weeks are up the weather will be warmer and your hip will have stopped grumbling.

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Scruff55

Thanks Scruff55, fingers crossed!


Ok, I ‘m shuffling up, here’s a warm place by the fire! 😄 ...I’m sorry to hear that OGR - but good to know that it’s not too serious & a “mending plan” is in place. Good luck with those exercises. Xxx

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Elfe5

Thank you Elfe - it’s always nice to have company, though I hope our stays aren’t too long!

Elfe560minGraduate in reply to Oldgirlruns



Be diligent with those exercises OGR and hopefully you'll be healed and running in comfort again really, really soon.

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to linda9389

Thank you Linda - yes, the exercises will be done!


You’ll hopefully miss all this dodgy cold stuff too, and the days will be longer. It’s win win really 👍 Take care and heal soon xx

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to TailChaser

Thank you TC!


Can I join you too? This icy ground has absolutely destroyed my hip (the unsorted one - the bionic one is grand), and now I have an ortho appointment. I'm determined to get out for a run/shuffle/trundle tomorrow, but will need to be really cautious. Will be watching all of the posts here about actual running with interest (& envy 😫). Take care & I hope you're off the IC soon!

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to PandaCory

All are welcome PandaCory! Do be careful on that hip, especially if it’s icy out there!

PandaCoryGraduate10 in reply to Oldgirlruns

Will do 👍🏻


Hope that 3 week rest is all it takes and you’re back on the road soon 🏃‍♀️

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Bambi2020

Thank you Bambi!


so sorry to hear, but good you know exactly what the issue is. I'm sure 3 weeks will go really quickly. Hopefully the weather will be better by then too.Take care and we'll see you back on the circuit very soon!


OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Hedgehogs123

Thank you H123! Yes, 3 weeks will fly I’m sure!


Oh no! Get well soon!

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Jericho2332

Thank you Jericho, I’ll do my best!


Oh OGR, that's rotten, but I'm glad you have managed to get some advice and have a plan of action. Fingers crossed that in three weeks time you WILL be lacing up those trainers and springing up off the IC. Enjoy your seaside walks 🤗

OldgirlrunsGraduate10 in reply to Delly-dot

Thank you D-d! Yes, fingers firmly crossed but I have high hopes!
