Sorry I've been absent for so long, its JuJu's fault that I'm back!! Thanks sharp eyed Miss Wobble for spotting my reply on her post and waving, I was just intending dipping in, leaving a comment and disappearing again.
I had a year on the injury bench due to PF, it crippled me I spent hundreds £'s on treatments, night splint, insoles, Sports Therapist and finally NHS Physio who proclaimed it would take months to sort which it did. At one point there was talk of surgery but Physio was so impressed with my determination and dedication to my exercises and it all paid off in the long run (pun intended for once).
January I got back to run/walk intervals and I'm back up to 5K's 3 times a week, albeit slowly about 40 minutes but I'm just happy to be back out there. I never had aspirations to run long distances so will be happy to plod along and perhaps one day work my way back up to 10K.
I can't expect a lot of improvement at my age but live in hope. I have a huge challenge ahead of me in June as my Gym Buddy has roped me into doing the RFL, distance not a problem, the crowds are another matter all together, if I manage to survive without a breakdown/meltdown I will have overcome a lifetime hurdle - eeeekkkkkk what have I done!?!
I confess that this site causes me great stress its slower than my running, it took me 3 days to get logged on to put a comment on JuJu's post and ages to find her first one on the Marathon, most frustrating.
Take care, happy running everyone
