My running week (Y2-10)

Wow, 10 weeks into 2019 already and another week on the injury bench.  I know I’ll get there eventually but this recovery is taking so, so, long.

With no running (or much else physical) to occupy my week, I’ve been busy dreaming about running, selling my race places, drawing/painting running shoes, and reinvesting my race place money into new running shoes… but as I covered most of that in yesterday’s post I’ll move swiftly on.

A little over a week ago the physio referred me to his superior in the dodgy leg department saying that either he’d phone me or I’d get a follow up appointment.   Yesterday the appointment arrived, so on 20th March I see the orthopedic consultant (or a member of her team).  I’m pleased this has come through relatively quickly as it feels like I’m questioning everything I do, worrying that it’s making my calf worse.  I can manage another ten days of nothing as long as I get some hope from the appointment, and a plan of how exactly we’re going to fix this.

I’ve also been busy planning my challenge for next year (yes, I know it’s only March) and have decided on #20in2020.  This means completing 20 races in 2020, and as it’s my challenge and my rules, I rule that parkrun is included.  So, even in the unlikely event that I’m still not back running by then I should at least be able to complete 20 parkruns.

That’s about all I can come up with that’s running related, so until next week please enjoy a photo of my very pink new running shoes.  K x

Asics cumulus

And yes they are the same ones from my artwork just in pink ❤

    Wow, those trainers are very striking in pink!
    I think the idea of looking at your challenges for 2020 is good, keeps your hopes up and gives you something more realistic to aim for so you can focus on recuperation right now. I’m glad you have your appointment too and that it’s not too long to wait.xx

      Loving the pink! Oddly they were £12 cheaper in that colour. I’ve had to move the appointment back a week due to a conflict but that’s ok as it means I’ll have another week of resting.
