    14 miles and 3 runs already this week. Even ran last two days consecutively and had my longest run of the year at 6 miles yesterday morning and quickest 4 miler of the year tonight. 

    Anyone know why my knee cap is sore? Like right on the top/front of it? I just went to squat to sit on the toilet and it was really rather sore! And struggled to stand up without it hurting too. Won’t run again now til sat or Sunday anyway but just wondered if it’s something familiar to anyone and is preventable?

    Isn’t that known as “runners knee”?

    Could be but I always thought this was pain behind the knee cap.

    I’ve done a 10km and a 5km this week so far. Hoping to get another 10km in Saturday or Sunday. Weather is messing my plans up!
    Chris.

    Yeah, I started with an 11.34k on Tuesday and a 5k yesterday. Thinking of a 7.5 tomorrow and perhaps a 10 on Saturday if my legs have one in them still.

    Take it steady with that knee - don’t try and run through it. If it hurts taking a shit it’ll probably hurt when you run! 

    I say that as someone who lost nearly 6 months of last year injured and is currently reduced to walking only due to injury; 25 miles already this week, so it’s not all bad.

    Everything you’ve said suggests you’ve probably overdone it - longest, fastest, consecutive days.

    That said only you know you body. I can admit to ignoring the signs which only made things worse for me. If you feel good crack on and ignore my concerns.

    Nope. You’re 100% right. I should know better having lost the same amount of time (nearly) when over doing it for my Ironman training! And told myself I wouldn’t rush it this time. Stupid idiot. Felt fine on the run but definitely sore since I got home. Will leave it a few days at least before heading out again.

    Going well this week; another 52 minute 10k, and 26.5k for the week from 3 runs. Will do last of the week tomorrow morning.

    Some impressive stats on here guys, something for me to aim for (eventually!)

    Still easing myself back into things. Six weeks in, and this week I did 9k in 51 mins - over 4 runs I should add! Average pace is therefore about 5:45 min/k which is a bit quicker than I was aiming for.

    My right knee is aching a bit occasionally, but I've been stretching it every day and this helps, and it's not hurting when I run so I'm not too worried about it.

    Squeezed a final 10k out this morning, and now I ache like a bugger. 37k for the week, now for two days off to recharge legs, watch and headphones!

    Well, after pushing my distance to 14k last Saturday, I suddenly found myself feeling discouraged by the weather this week.  Its been particularly cold and windy.  I realised that I don't relish running into a freezing headwind.
    I put running off for a couple of days, but finally got myself moving on Wednesday.  Same again Friday.  Today its cold, windy and drizzling - and I'm a bit hyper because I've got a job interview tomorrow.  Anyway I drove myself out and, as usual it was fine once I'd warmed up.  Plus I'm a bit calmer now.
    I've reached my weekly goal of 20k, across three runs, in a week that could easily have ended with no running.  Brave boy.  Pat on the back........

  • The freezing headwind was brutal this morning. Definite misgivings about having chosen shorts ... but once I'd warmed up a bit it was fine, and then the sun even came out  =) Pushed on to 20km, which makes 43km this week.

    I always have to remind myself that the rain always looks a lot worse from inside the house than it is once you're out there.

    Easier saying it than putting into practice, mind.

  • Finished week 6 of couch to 5k.
    Managed 3 x 6k runs.

    Still early days for me. 
    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    Good on you pal. You’ll be capable of more than you think. The best thing a friend did for me was tell me that if I could run a 5k, I could do a ten. I thought it nonsense, but he was right. As wanky as it sounds, positive mindset is 8/10ths of the battle.

    38k this week, just hit my 100km target for the month with a week to spare. Feel knackered now though, so I think a few days rest is in order.

    Well done!

    I was hoping to squeeze my 20k per week up to 100 for the month, but its a short month, so its starting to look a bit doubtful.

    I had a covid jab on Thursday.  No, I'm not that old, but I do some social care volunteering and 'the authorities' declared this to make me eligible for the jab.  Anyhoo, the downside was a day of side-effects yesterday - high temperature and a pounding head.  So that was one planned run out of the window.  I'm not too bad today, just a bit tired.  I've been planning a 10 miler for tomorrow.  Fingers crossed, I'll feel up for it.

    10miles is impressive. Not done that yet - I’ve been doing a lot of 10-12ks lately though, so I’d like to push up to 15, with a view to a half marathon in the summer.

    On the volume that you're putting in, I doubt that you'll struggle to extend to 10 miles and beyond to half marathon.  Its important to pace yourself and get your recovery time, but I'm sure you know that.

    Oh, thought I should mention to all runners; I bought these on a bit of a punt (reviews are brilliant but they’re an unknown so I was skeptical) got to say, they’re incredibly good, especially for the money. I was using Powerbeats 3 til I got these and they were having repeat issues with loss of connection. These sound infinitely better and performance is amazing. Would definitely recommend to all without hesitation.

    I cant even pace myself with a bag of chips 

    I think I can do it, I just live in a hideously hilly area.
    Last run had 87m of elevation. That hurt!

    I’ve definitely tweaked my hip! Having to do strengthening exercises going forward. Thankfully I can take it easy these week - maybe do a couple of tens all being well, and leave it at that.

    Managed 4 runs and 14 miles last week. Aiming for 20 this week but am definitely sore in the lower back after last night’s run. 

    March will be a slog.... my target this month is 50 miles, next month it goes up to 70. I’m feeling stronger in the legs so I should be able to increase my runs to 5milers on average which will help but still feels like hard work :D
