I want off the IC now!

GettingFitter profile image

Evening running buddies. Sorry I haven't been here much as work has been very busy. Not great news from the Physio today. I still have Post Tibial Tendonitis. Here's the latest

Me - Managed a 2 mile run/walk last night calf/ankle was fine while running. Physio and how is it today? Me: Sore but not as bad as it's been. Physio: Don't run if it is sore. Increase your distance by no more than 10% each week. Keep doing your stretching exercises and here are some strength ones. No more 10ks for you. Me: So how long is it going to take to fix it. Physio: 8-10 weeks as long as you don't overdo it but make sure you load the tendon or it could take longer.

So summary. You can run if it doesn't hurt. Do your exercises and you can cross/train. Ensure you have a rest day. This will take a looooonnnnggggg time. See you next week

DAMN IT!

Hope you are all enjoying your running it's a major pain when you can't

Not GettingFitter at the moment ;-)

Oh no. That's sad news. What a shame. But you will get better. It's not forever. I can feel your frustration though :( but you are doing everything right. Sighing for you.

Aww GF - that's pants! so sorry the news isn't better. I don't blame you for sounding so fed up. In a few months time you will be able to look back on this as a temporary blip in your running career. Try to be patient in the meantime And get better soon.

Sympathies GF. Thought you'd escaped the IC :( Seems to me that thinking you're ok and then finding you're not is worse than knowing you're stuck here for the long haul. I'll shove up and make room for you again x

That is a pity but look how fast 9 weeks went with the programme so 7/8 weeks will fly by. Just look on it as a slightly different training programme without Laura! Keep the chin up there is a large light at the end of the tunnel.

Physio has handed me over to the chiropractor- now have a nice bruise on my hip! Hopefully she will sort me out.
