I haven't posted here properly for a while but thought I would say hello. I have joined the merry tribe of runners in Bridge to 10k here ( I would recommend it for all you graduates).
So having been on the IC for the summer and got sent to running prison ( the gym) I am now back panthering along on my favorite trail run with the goblins ( luckily they are scared of panthers!). Oh and I am all signed up for the BRIGHTON MARATHON...I am soooooo excited
For Achilles tendinitis I highly recommend excessive heel drops- hurt but work. The other thing to mention is that all the hours at the gym doing bike/ cross trainer mostly have PAID OFF!! I can feel a huge difference in my core strength, stamina and leg strength so i would recommend it to supplement the running!!
The mountain doesn't ever get any easier but its so beautiful this time of year I find i draw from the power of the trees and the wind ( does that make sense? More so if it rains... The only downside are flipping dogs... they all leap up at me, any advice on how best to manage them? I am really frightened of them and the owners just laugh
