2010 Childrens Liver Disease Foundation marathon runners

A reversed route and near slip into the “splash” Fulmer’s ford, got the run off to a shaky start.  For once, although dull, the weather was mild and I flew (for me) round the back of Pinewood but after an hour my glute was agony.  I was halfway out, I had to keep going – I’ve had three children, I can stand pain….

That’s all very well but by Saturday, despite sitting in a freezing bath, I was very depressed as I could hardly walk and thought I’d never run again.  I stretch, took ibuprofen, moped and realised that I would be devastated if I couldn’t make the marathon.

On Sunday I stretched, walked, moped, took pills and the muscles didn’t feel quite so bad so tried to be positive.

I’d booked a massage on Monday which helped.  I had a PT session with Massimo, we did super stretching, concentrated on the upper body strength exercises and discussed a plan for Sunday’s half-marathon.  I want to run it as a practice event but  want to get my leg properly healed before I run hills again.

Massimo has booked me in for a fitness test on Friday and we’ll decide then if I’m going to run.  I’ve got 4 days, fingers crossed.
