My progress so far...

Hello peeps,  Sorry its been so long since i posted. I had an injection, but it didnt help. Also I agravated the bursitus further by injuring myself at work, (yes i had made a claim lol). I have another injection coming my way in a months time, this has...

Finally, a Diagnosis!!!!

Hello Guys, marathoners, future marathoners I got a diagnosis today of what ive been suffering from for 6 months. Yep, six months. Bursitus, a form osteoperosis. Inner hip muscle is inflamed where it attaches to bone. Three ways to treat it: tablets/dra...

I know its been a while

But I decided to brave the road again. Its been a couple months, working with the physio to get my hip better, 4 sessions of ultrasound and reglisously sticking to exercises. No running but i'm rather sick of waiting now, wanted to try at least. 2.62 mi...

Recovery Run

Off to the gum today, i thought it would be easier for my 30 minute recovery run to be on a treadmill, to control my heart somewhat. It paid off as i got 70%, still hoping to get higher percentages in future. 1.77 miles. 8.73 miles in total so far on my...

5k on grass track...

I decided to make a custom run on my micoach for today as i'd completed all the runs this week from my plan. I was curious as to run only on track, run the right amount of laps for 5k (12.5) and see if my micoach was in sync with it. So in total 3.11 mi...

Fox hunting... And a good int...

There are foxes everywhere, but one in particular has clocked on that there is a Robins nest in the Ivy climbing the fence in my garden. Twice he tried to attack it, first time mum ran it off, second time, sister ran it off lol. She said that the mummy ...

Intervals at 62% !!

Soooo.... Dave you were right, it did wake me up somewhat. The threshold intervals went very well and i didnt feel at all worn out, muscles felt good, breathing was fairly good also, not my best but good. Below is the graph of my intervals, i just about...

From 0% to 63%

Today's run was simpler than others so far on my training plan. 55 minutes, 5 min warm up and 5 for cool down, with a comfortable green zone in the middle. Knowing i work myself up and not concentrating on my breathing, I focused much better on it this ...

Blustery with SUN! In my tiny...

Not literally in my shorts, i mean the weather, that wouldnt make sense.   Today was a 30 minute recovery, that meant blue zone, the zone i cant manage because of high heart rate. I really did try and go slow, but it just didnt work for my heart. I thou...

Park Run in the Rain

Still following my current programme on my Micoach, today was a 46 minute run with normal pace intervals of 10 mins with slow 5 mins to recover. I did not do well when it came to trying to lower my heart rate to the right zone, especially looking at the...

Treadmill/gym session

My training plan today was for 29 minutes of threshold intervals, 3 sets of 3x 1 minute threshold, 1 minute recovery with warm up cool down etc. It wasnt looking so good outside weather wise, surprise surprise. So i went to the gym to do it on treadmill...

New training Plan!

I had set up a new one to follow after marathon for this week, believe its a fitness/weight programme, was curious. Its made up of a lot of slow/fast intervals, between half hour and full hour sessions. 34 in total, 3 a week. Today was slower 5 mins wit...

My old friend the road

Yes I had my first run since marathon this evening, and you know what, i felt really good compared to previous runs, what with the worrying constantly with my hip. The first 20 yards or so my ankle had a quick moan, i think i heard them say "Really? tha...
My official time: 6 hour, 14 mins 26secs. I had one down moment but plenty of ups. My hip went at only 9 miles, i was afraid and hurting so i went to st johns ambulance, got plasters for my feet and massage for my hip. I made three stops for massage alo...

Last post before marathon

Hello peeps, Its nearly here, but you knew that! lol, i decided against running today, thought it was a dumb idea as i was having aches, think it was from taking part in my sister photoshoot yesterday and acting like an ass lol. Was too hyper as always ...

One Week

               Nerves are kicking in now, i realise the VLM is not an easy task for anyone taking part, and especially the last few miles as most people say. Yet i'm fairly sure the tough phase will come much more quickly for myself, I am mentally prep...

See you at the start, i'm run...

Thats my decision, i'm running, so good news! When i was sure this morning my chances were fading away. I had a spurr of the moment run this evening after arriving back from the isle of wight. I did this because through the travelling I had no twinges, ...

Closer to making that decision

Easter sunday run, happy birthday TT. My sister came with me to take some running photographs on the sea front for her project, bless her even though she has tonsilitus on easter. She did pretty good, only stayed for the first 30 minutes.... then i cont...

Treadmill Tester

I hit the treadmill yesterday, from the start it felt uncomfortable in the hip area, but ok the run through. It got to 35 minutes when the discomfort was upping, and carried on the 40 mins, boardering on pain so stopped. Not as bad feeling in hip as pre...

Best result with bucket fundr...

This is my fourth bucket fundraising session outside my old work, usually i dont get much over £50/£60/£70 mark, but today i really went for it, talking to everyone and anyone, lots of pound coins, couple people even gave a fiver and a tenner! was over ...

Back to short run Marathon Pace

I didn't want to run for long, knowing it may hinder my so far quicker recovery, but I did want to try getting back to my desired pace for marathon for some reassurance, even if i dont run that pace on the day. My desired marathon pace is between 11-11....

2nd Swimming Session

The outer area of my thigh today is a little sore probably from physio yesterday or the tennis ball action up the thigh lol, so i thought it may not be an ideal day for trying a short run. Instead i went swimming again, my arm had recovered from a pulle...

Crosstrainer session & 1st Ph...

Another low impact cardio to keep my fitness where it should be, a crosstrainer session for nearly 75 mins, covered about 10 kilomters/over 6 miles. No complaints through this session, felt my hip working hard but no pain. I went straight from the gym t...

Swim session

I went for a swim today to give my hip a break, 54 lengths i managed feeling strong for most of it, kept going until i used up most of my energy. That was about an hour in the pool, with a bit of stretching as well. Definately much fitter than i think i...
