Itchy feet

This no-running caper is really starting to get to me. I just want to go for a run. I ran to get over some traffic lights the other day and I felt fine. Surely I can start now. No I'd better wait. A measly 38.5 km for this month. I suppose there is no option but to take it easy, but it is so frustrating. Bring on Thursday. Fingers crossed that I'll be allowed to run then.

What is better; running a little bit now, and keep the injury problems and restricted duties indefinitely, or wait a bit extra, and be back for the LONG RUN(pun intended!)?
We will all still be hear ready to greet/run/blog with you.
DISIPLINE is your strength, use it.

Ditto to what Phil said.
I have been waiting patiently (read fretting) for 5 weeks today.It is hard but i has to be that way.

Patience Dave!

Cheers R2B

I have been getting back to running after getting tendonitis in my knee. Then I developed itb and achilles problems so I can understand your frustration.

Building up slowly is really important though. I followed a 6 week return to running programme and then did a few more weeks of just building up my base before I started doing any speed work.

I also found doing lots of water running helped me maintain a reasonable amount of fitness.

Good luck with it.
