This week I have done a Dailey Method class daily. It turns out this is to be my destiny for the next 6 weeks as my PT advised me to lay off running for 6 weeks to let my Achilles heal. October shall be a very sloooow month for me! But hopefully come November, I shall be strong and ready to run again.
Welcome to the bench...
Runners who can't or should not be running.Richard Stiller 9/26/12 10:37 pm
I am learning the art of perseverance, Richard! And extreme patience... I hadn't realised you were benched. I am sorry to hear it. Are you cross training like crazy? How long have you been off?Wendy Roberts 9/26/12 10:41 pm
I am still running but probably shouldn't. Legs giving me problems. I am using every trick I know to keep going. But I may end up taking time off.
You'll be back. Your PT is right on. Stop thinking of marathons :) You'll be back quicker without the pressure. Richard Stiller 9/26/12 10:50 pm

Track night comprising warm up, drills, strides, 4 x 200m w/90 sec recoveries, cool down. Another fun night with the team! Now to see how the Achilles seems tomorrow...

Easy runwithdog along Embarcadero. Saw the shuttle fly by! Achilles seems to have calmed down. For now.

Easy trail runwithdog. Achilles feels fine but probably should stay off the trails. (It is just soooo boring otherwise though!)
Glad to see you and your kids have signed up for our Pleasanton Double Road Race...and the Kids Christmas one mile...going to be fun!!!Bob Anderson 9/20/12 3:46 pm
Yes, the kids are looking forward to it (as am I!)Wendy Roberts 9/21/12 2:26 pm

Raced the Big Gay 10K today after some warm up miles and cool down miles. Have lost fitness with this injury. Won the female section and came 12th overall with 39.09 although course was short so not an accurate time for the distance. Plenty to work on, Achilles permitting of course!
Sounds okay for your first race in months short course or not.Richard Stiller 9/16/12 1:59 pm

Easy shake out run with the dog and kids 1 and 3 on bikes and 4 in stroller.

Long run with the dog. Hot today!
It was, Richard! The Achilles didn't like the long run sadly. It swelled up and is very tender now. I am wondering whether it needs more time and trying to train for CIM in December is just too soon? Maybe I can stick to shorter distances and ease into it more slowly? This injury is persistent :-( Just when you think all is well, it presents itself all swollen again.Wendy Roberts 9/8/12 11:16 pm

With my friend Mr Mill.
Why are you doing a lot of runs on the treadmill? Just wondering....Bob Anderson 9/6/12 10:29 pm
If I can't get out for a run (mainly because of the kids) I hop into the 'mill! I'm building the mileage again in the hope I can race CIM in December. Achilles permitting, of course!Wendy Roberts 9/6/12 10:52 pm
CIM is closed for registration, with a few exceptions, one is if a time standard has been met,
in that case registration is open OCT 1 until OCT 15Tim McMenomey 9/7/12 10:44 am
Cheers, Tim. I have a spot. Just not sure I am sufficiently over my injury to race it. Will see how the training goes...Wendy Roberts 9/7/12 11:24 am

Way to go Wendy...I:28:54 half marathon today. And third female overall...you are rolling!!!!Bob Anderson 4/8/12 9:16 pm
Thank you, Bob. I was not expecting much as I have been stroller running with the dog mostly! And trying to stay on the flat as the stroller is a pain on hills. It is nice to know that I can run a PB on a hilly course off base miles without specific training. It means I am getting fitter! It is motivation to give me focus when I start the schedule for my summer marathon.Wendy Roberts 4/8/12 9:39 pm reply to comment
