Ah those were the days


Sorry I've not been here recently. Who are you? I hear you shout!

Received my first copy of Runners World in the post today. I signed up for it pre knackered foot. I'm actually feeling quite low at the moment and I'm sure that is partially because I was really proud of what I was doing. And it was something I was doing just for me. Not the boy or the dog or the boss or the parents. It was something just for me.

Been referred to an orthopaedic surgeon to see what can be done but nowadays even walking the dog is becoming painful. I did a couple of minutes run tonight with the pooch and it felt great before it hurt!

Anyway, positive outlook. Hopefully they'll get it sorted. Even if I have to build up to thirty minutes again I'm determined to do it.

And I do still sneak a look at your posts and you're all amazing!!

There are always a bunch of us on the IC and we all want to get running again, so keep looking in on us and we can keep spirits up.

Stay positive.

Hopefully you'll get an appointment soon, your copy of Runners world can lift your spirits if just a wee bit.

As you say fingers crossed they can help and you can get back to running. Good luck 😊🤞🤞

Thank you Buddy. Glad to see you're enjoying parkrun!


Ah it sucks, being injured. You know I feel for you. Hope you get seen soon, and get some positive news. And I hope you can get some comfort and support from how we can see that some of the experienced runners who help out on here have been through periods of injury and come back to it successfully. Take care x

Thanks Jazzy 😁 glad to see you're back to it x
