The achilles is still an issue.  Walked to Sainsbury's (0.5 miles one way) on Sunday, and it flared up badly, so much so that I limped home.  It was tight and then became really sore and It was sore the next day.  Did the same walk yesterday, but slowed down when I felt it getting tight, walked fine (but slower) and its fine today.  Lesson is let it warm up and stretch.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Its sciatica. Very very painful at times and ive had a numb leg for 48 hours now. I cant even walk a full length of my pool without gasping.

As always, i get into a good routine and something comes along. 

A weekend on the couch doing nothing with a bleak week ahead. Utterly depressed.

I know what you’re going through and it’s really tough on your mental state.  Try to keep mobile even in more modest but more often ways as it’s a lot harder to get moving again after being stopped for a while.

Here are some simple stretches which help me when things are bad:

Finished the half marathon just under 1 hour 58. Not my quickest, but not my slowest either. I'll take that.

Greetings from foreign where it is sunny and everyone apart from me looks devestatingly healthy in swimwear.

20 mins treadmill yesterday. Off again in a mo.

And then the free bar for nutritional supplements.

Why are you on a treadmill rather than outside running in that?

Because it’s 27C and that sand is an absolute sod.

I've got a stress fracture in one of my lumbar vertebrae.

Great. Absolutely sodding great. Explains a lot though...

None of that sounds good.

What happens next with that?

Not sure. Theres a lot of scare tissue so the hope is that its an old injury and that my current sciatica is an inflamed nerve rather than a pinched one.

Time will tell. 

Ill be googling yoga when i feel spirited enough
