It's 13 minutes of my PB but I've not trained so I suppose I shouldn't be too vexed.

6k through the woods tonight and it's given me a cough. My step daughter said I looked grey and rough when I got back. Nice to know it's improving my health

Dunno Mr Pads but he went through Maidenhead. His knee blew out- reckons he'd have had sub-12 hours without that.

Alright mate. Have you tried hokas? Thinking about giving the cliftons a go for longer training rubs but don't know anyone who uses them.

Training rubs aye? Sounds suspicious!

I've never used them but i've heard good things. A mate runs to work and its all pavement so he likes the extra cushioning. I've seen loads of people on Ultras using them but they just look like ankle breakers, but enough use them so must be something in them.

For my longer runs i use Brooks Cascadias which are fantastic and also Asics nimbus, think im on the 14's at the moment, all have really good cushioning.

I'm seriously contemplating ditching shorter 10K and half marathon stuff (which I expect to do at a good pace) in favour of longer slower (and more scenic stuff). I'm convinced that in my advancing years endurance is a better option.

But back up to about 35 miles a week with only marginal discomfort. The Yoga and foam roller routine seems to be keeping the PF at bay... just

This thread has died a death a bit, but I've still been keeping up my running.

Yesterday, just on my own, I broke my 10km and half marathon PBs in the same run.

10km - 48mins, Half - 1 hr 52 mins



I have been doing more varied exercise and have worked on my core strength. It seems to have had a massive impact on the longer distances!

Cheers, did another half marathon Sunday. Two in two weeks. Wasn't as fast. It was really muddy and hard going. Finished though!

I guess it's a good time of year for you to get back into it.

Not so much in England. It's dark when I get home from work now. Took a nasty fall a fortnight ago, but I won't let it put me off.

Ive been running now for about 9 months

Only do 2-3 miles 2 or 3 times a week and the other days I do 5-6 miles on a bike

Primarily wanted to get fit to play tennis with my eldest daughter so have also being playing tennis a couple of times a week for an hour or 2

I have had the odd issue with my knees early on due to pronation whilst running but had seemed to have resolved that (thats part of the reason I alternate between bike and running) and have been taking glucosamine and chondroitin supplements for a few months now

2 weeks ago felt a really sharp pain in my knee when I woke up and everytime I squat or bend down its particularly bad. Have zero swelling on the knee, I stopped the running and biking hoping it was just a strain or pull. Last night it started "grinding" and when I climb the stairs you can here the joint clicking and popping

The pain has also gone from the occasional short sharp pain inside the joint to a dull ache on the side

I have been referred for an x-ray today, but I have this feeling that its not going to be good news. I have had injuries before when I was a young man playing semi-pro football and I'm normally fairly good at reading the severity of them. This one feels as though its not going to be fixed by rest

Absolutely gutted, not too bothered about any potential ops or rehab but the fact I might not be able to run, bike or play tennis for a while

Bad news Lec, knees are an absolute bastard. I hope it's nothing serious.

Get well soon.

XRay came back "normal" but it's still giving me grief and I haven't even ran or biked for over 2 weeks. Am away on business for next week or so in Vietnam so will be resting it a further 2 weeks at least

If it's no better when I come back gonna get a scan on it

My ankle is still knackered but I'm going to the specialist next month. Those shoes look ultra supportive though, so might be a good option if/when my ankle heals up.

Yeah I'd say they'd be a good bet. My ankles seems to have healed finally (took years) but I still like the idea of the support these would give. Especially on longer runs.

Anyone had problems with their hips? I had a month or so out recently (through laziness), and have only done 3 runs in the last 2 weeks or so, but since the last one my left hip is killing me, to the point that it's waking me up in the night. It's the outer part on the side of my leg which is giving me gyp, watched/read a few things and that seems to be the least serious place it can be which is something. One side is tender to touch and the other side just hurts all of the time. Considering going the doctors but he'd probably just tell me to rest. Have had lower back issues in the last year or two and tight hamstrings. Could it all be linked? Someone suggested going to a chiropractor but that seems a bit much.

I've taken the plunge and finally entered an organised event. I'm doing another in Kingston in April a longer distance. I'll be wearing an LFC track suit top for this one

Any donations will be seriously appreciated, even 1

Bumper bump

3 legends on here who've amazed me with their generosity

Anything will be greatly appreciayed. A pound will do, have a look down the sofa, cancel tomorrow's Starbucks visit, don't have that extra pint, take a pack luck to work and help fight cancer with us.

So far since 4th January, I've lost 10lbs, dropped body fat by 3%, not had a drop of alcohol I started the month 14st 3lbs and am aiming to be 13st or under by 31st Jan for the event. I've done this by pretty much starving myself through the week and surviving on 600 calories a day. Every pound I'm over 13st will make running that much harder

A really tough 10k this afternoon. I ran 5k down the rd and didnt realise it was slightly down hill most the way. The back half was hell. It didnt help that I'd only eaten 250 calories since I got up

10k today through muddy woods. It was like running through treacle.

Reached my sponsorship target early this evening, thank you again to those from here who sponsored me. Your generosity has amazed me

Hi Norbs,

I tried to donate but I keep getting a "We're really sorry − there's been a problem." message on JustGiving.

I've emailed them and I'll wait for a reply.
