Re: W5 R3 - 20 mins

I did it! I actually did it and ran 20 mins straight without stopping. Honestly I can't stop talking about it, you'd think I'd just won an Olympic gold medal or something!! Still it's a big achievement for me as 5 weeks ago I could just about run a minute. Now today I ran 20 and in the 30 mins slot...

Re: Week 9 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

Hi Linda, I've wondered about joint pain myself. My knees and ankles pain me sometimes and I've never had pain in them before. I'm from the US and Costco has a joint pain reliever my brother swears by. I'm going today to find some and I'll let you know the name and if it works. Take care of that ba...

Re: Week 8 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

I'm sorry to say, my online running pals, that my birthday present today is not to graduate (which was my aim a couple of weeks ago) but to be told by my GP that (as I sort of expected) I have damaged/torn my left medial meniscus (cartilage on the inside of the knee). In my twenties I did this on m...

Re: I'm back! (again)

O Simon, that is the best report, I am so extremely happy for you. This is AWESOME! :lol: I was sitting here just wondering how everyone was doing. I'm kinda down in my back a little, the last run I did was brutal. Every step seemed to be an annoying pain, not a really bad pain, but just enough to m...

Re: Week 9 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

It's Wednesday and I should have run, but I didn't run this morning, my back is still bugging me. I have a question for anyone. Do you take anything for your bones or joints? If so what do you take? Curious as to how everyone is doing, I hope your almost mended and ready to run. I'm a little disappo...

Re: Week 9 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

:( 10 min in and my lower back was giving me trouble, pushed on and stopped at 28 min. I'm gonna repeat week 8 the rest of this week. I was really not liking the running this morning. Felt stiff in my muscles and bones. Just did not feel at my best today. So how is everyone else's progress? Linda

Re: Finished week 3

I'm still dripping from my last week 3 run. Had a little trouble with my knees today. I just kept going and they seemed rested enough after walking to run the 3 minute runs. This was my hardest day so far. It's hot here and I waited until after 8 pm to run. Should have gone early this morning! Keep...

Week 9 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

It's Sunday night, just thinking on tomorrows first run of the week, :shock: Thinking how proud I am of our friend Sue who did The Color Run. I wanna try and do this in Dec. but I hope I can get faster than I have been running.

Re: Week 8 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

Thanks, you guys are great! I am struggling with each run, my lower back hurts some, but I think it's gonna hurt no matter what I do. Hope it don't stop me from running regularly. I had a bone density scan back in Feb, the results were I have osteopenia (pre osteoporosis) and one of my hips the bone...

Re: Week 8 (mon-wed-fri) by Linda231

Good Friday Morning to ya all. Completed w8r3 this morning. :lol: My lower back is still hurting while running. Hope it's not gonna do that every time. Was a little humid, my glasses fogged up quite a bit. I am still wondering why this is not something I can't wait to do. I honestly dread it each ti...
