Grate Stuff

Oops, nearly forgot to write some stuff after the bath tap emergency this afternoon... [lots of driving to all the local DIY stores this aft' (bumped into local running talent Matt Cox in B&Q btw) trying to find the right tap valve (we didn't) and now we're left with plyers instead of a tap...]

Our early bimble around Ilkley to watch a vets road relay  this morning was followed by my easy 5 miler; I was again inspired to stay focused and keep pluggin' away... but the comeback isn't quite as straight forward as I'd have hoped. The injury site is still behaving but I seem to be left with a strange feeling since the first set of physio treatment; one of running on stiff and quite sore wooden legs. The stiffness and discomfort in both legs from my 're-alignment' to address the 'neural gliding' is making running a bit of a chore, I've yet to feel easy and pain free which I'm left questioning. Is this normal? 

M tells me this is what everyone feels like after a long break from training. I'm hoping he's right and just hope it wears off soon. I'm 3 weeks back on very low mileage and I'm not rid of it yet. But I'm running again so I mustn't moan. Selby tomorrow, for M's 10 miler.

  4. You're lucky! You can run 5 miles. I did 10 minutes on a cross-trainer and have wooden legs today! And me Dad would thrash us to sleep with an iron bar...
