Zippity Doo Dah - Running week of Jan. 18 2009

I just got back from a 5.4 mile run. I haven't gone that far since August. I got a stitch in my side after about a mile, but I decided to HTFU and run through it. My time was all right - a 10:38 pace. Really I should be thrilled with that time. Ten months ago I was doing 12:30 miles and only running two of them. And it's not like I've been running a lot since August.

Beautiful weather we're having here - sunny, 62 degrees, not too windy. I saw a few ducks in the canal.

Beautiful day here with temps in the mid 60s. I was able to run just under 4 miles. My hamstrings still tighten up a lot when I run, they tighten up so I can't fully extend my knee when running

It was a nice run though, I just slowed my pace down and just enjoyed being outside. It was wam enough to wear shorts. When I got back home I did a yoga DVD for about 45 min. Gosh, why do weekends have to go by so fast.

I was thinking the same thing- really need to work 4 days a week - so much more civilized!

I did a painful 4km today. Shins acting up again. Hope it goes away on its own.

So everyone was right, I should not have run at all after my marathon. But I did, just a little....Then my old hip injury started acting up. So I went to see the sports chiropractor, and he got me in line. Then he forbade me from running for a little while, which is fine, since I am jumping into tri training. Really, I am ok with my running now. I was going to be backing my running way down anyway, but I don't have the confidence swimming and biking as I do running now. Alas, I am icing wherever it hurts, which has been steadily crawling down my leg from my hip. I am currently on the outside of my knee.

Enjoy your runs this week!!!

Ugh.. sounds like a lot of us are hurting! Here's to quick healing for all.

I walked yesterday -- promised myself no running for another week so that the calf has better chance to heal. I walked only 3 miles, but it was gorgeous out. Man I wanted to break into a jog! That's the hardest part for me. Walking always is boring, even with the dog along!

I have not been posting much lately, but I just jumped in on the interval discussion in the other thread so I thought I would come out of the lurking closet and say hi again.

I have been running, just not posting.

I am sorry that so many people are aching. I have been battling tendonitis for a year. Some periods of good knee and lots of bad knee.

So I feel ofr ya! I have done the therapy gambit( is that spelled right..i have no idea) So ask me anything.

hang in there!!!!!

Ugh...too many injuries around here!! As for me, I haven't been running as much lately--partly because I am being very careful getting back into it, partly because the weather here has been making it harder to run outside, but largely because there are so many other activities I've wanted to do such as snowshoeing. We just got about 7-8 inches of snow yesterday so I am enjoying it! Snowshoed for 1.5 hours today on local conservation land and it was a good workout.
