    great Call me "Bob" 2.83 mi 00:27 09:33 pace

    Given the failure of my original starting-from-scratch programme, my PT put me on a more gradual programme yesterday. I call it "Baby Steps." However, following a protest on my part, he i... read more

    At physio 00:24

    My new physio told me to do 8 repetitions of 2 minutes running and one minute walking on his treadmill.

    It's the longest I've run in [INSERT EXTREMELY LONG TIME], so I'm logging it!... read more

    Open secret 2.1 mi 00:20 09:31 pace

    Having fessed up, I can now post my running attempts more officially.

    Today I increased the reps and did all of 4 x 4’/1’-minute rulk intervals.

    Or, as I call it, an anti-LSD:

  5. It would appear that the best thing for a bad back and a bad foot is to go out for a run.

    Why didn’t I think of this months ago?!

      Agreed, if that's how it came across then it was wrong. My attitude to injury is that I'll try to encourage my body to heal itself. My attitude to doctors and therapists is that I will take everything they say with a grain of salt. Anyway, I really hope you are healing and I hope that your latest physiotherapist is the right one for you.

      I just wanted to add, doctors and therapists are accustomed to dealing with people who won't change their habits, won't listen to the advice, won't do the exercises or whatever on their own, are afraid of any pain, etc. so that's why you have to pay attention on your own behalf and so forth. Just wanted to mention.

    Our little secret 🤫 1.57 mi 00:15:00 09:33 pace

    Today I hit a new all-time record weight - and not just by a small margin.

    My back hurt and my foot hurt. But I said “Fuck it,” pulled on my Running Fit Ultramarathon Team T-shirt, sighed wistf... read more

    For a while I was the only man in the room. Until another guy came in after we’d already started.

    But I remained the only pope.

  8. I’m so proud of my daughter: Despite being a millennial, she managed to work out how to use a watch strap yesterday, even though she couldn’t find a YouTube video with instructions.

    Progress: Although my back was hurting even before I started spinning, I didn’t have to remove the saddle post and even managed sitting sprints.

      Ugh, sorry to hear this. Sometimes it feels like when things go wrong, everything has to go wrong. I hope though that this passes and soon you have better days again.

      Good point, @Mike: It actually came frothing out of the gash at the start and I was convinced I’d have to walk the whole way back! Fortunately it eventually somehow managed to plug the hole. 😅

    My back is still “blocked” on one side, so I again found I had to remove the saddle post and do the whole session standing up. It was exhausting!

      Bummer! Or rather, no-bum-er. I have been thinking about what you said about your back not having what you called "nerve entrapment" and I dunno. My reaction to something not working is to try to get it working, always, no matter what it is. I recommend this course of action, it's the only thing that has ever worked for me. Anyway, good luck tomorrow.

    Breaking the streak 00:50

    The good news is that my back is much better and I no longer have to lift my leg using my hand. I was therefore finally able to break my involuntary 18-day no-sport streak last night by going spinn... read more

  14. Update: I tried to run for a bus. After three steps, my back said, "No, we're not."

  15. I won't bother you with my woes. I just wish you all a happy New Year, health and lots of injury-free enjoyment of your favourite sporting and non-sporting pastimes.

  16. You may be wondering where I've been.

    Eight days ago - on day 13 of my starting-from-scratch programme - my PF flared up again. I haven't run since. I saw my osteopath yesterday and no... read more

    With Santa watching me, I thought it judicious to ease off today so that more of the others lived to see another Xmas.

    Starting from scratch: Day 13 3.45 mi 00:30 08:41 pace

    3 rulking reps of 9 minutes running and 1 minute walking.

    My training plan clearly said to itself, "I made him do WHAT yesterday?!" because it only added a single repetition today.

    Starting from scratch: Day 12 2.13 mi 00:20 09:23 pace

    2 reps of 9 minutes running and 1 minute walking.

    That’s right; my training plan took me from 4 minutes to 9 in the space of just 24 hours.

    I’m basically a living legend.

  20. RUN
    Starting from scratch: Day 11 3.86 mi 00:30 07:46 pace

    6 rulking reps of 4 minutes running and 1 minute walking.

    Judging by my activities this last weekend, I think my sweat was pure mulled wine and beer.
