No running

Well I'm in America & ashamed to say I've not run here ,or 2 wk prior to coming . Didn't run in u.k because was getting achy legs & sore hip . Only minor thing but after giving my body a months rest I hope I can gradually get back to it . Been reading all your posts your all doing great . Just to let u all know I'm still around . Happy running

Have a great time Rockette. Enforced rest is sometimes the best thing for us, to stop us running and allowing the root cause of our aches and pains to heal. Enjoy your rest. You'll be running like a good 'un soon enough when you get back to Blighty. xx

Ey up Rockette!!! Great to hear from you again. I wondered what you were up to. America ey, get you! I hope you have a fabbo time. I bet you're having better weather than we are. We have gales at the moment and heavy rain, and the temp gauge is going down. Luvly!

I hope your hip is feeling better for a rest. Lots of sightseeing might irritate it a bit so try and keep moving forward. I think it's stop/starting that makes it hurt more. I was sightseeing last weekend and I noticed my hip stiffening up. Mind you it was ruddy freezing!

Sounds like you probably needed a rest. Just enjoy & make a plan for when you want to re-start & build up slowly. Enjoy your travels x

Hi Rockette!! Where are you? I live in upper NY state and it is getting colder here! Still running 3 times a week- doing a 6 week " speed camp" with a group who are MUCH faster than me ( and much younger-haha), but don't think I have improved too much. At least I am still doing the runs and not having any big aches or pains! Have fun:)
