Hi all, it's been a while (about 3 months) since I last blogged and I've been meaning to blog for a while.
I'm aware that I often blogged when everything was going well and I think it is probably equally important to blog the less productive times.
Well a few months ago I had obviously over trained and just tipped my adductors (inner thigh join groin to inner knee ish) to injure / ache, the last straw for it was some speed work I think.
Anyway after a half marathon and a good few runs on holiday my back started to play up and then my calves would really tighten 1km into a run, so off I went to see a Physio (thankfully I found a scheme through work) and in effect my body was out of balance and therefore everything was triggering everything else.
So I was given some core strengthening exercises along with some balancing exercise amongst others and on the whole this has helped, I am by no means where I was, that being running care free and pushing it. I've been restricted to 5k a couple of times per week (the Physio initially suggested 2 miles, "would 5k be alright" I said) but other than my back and adductors the rest have calmed done.
Physio has given me permission to train more for an April Marathon and see how I am feel in Febuary.
So it is with trepidation that I'm about to write up my training plan.
Note to self must be more regimented with exercises and using the rolling pin on my adductor
Enjoy your runs, even the bad ones
