another hurdle...

Hi not posted for a while as been quite ill, the ear infection i was suffering with turned into a worse infection. The infection has turned out to be something called mastoiditis, it is an infection in a bone behind the ear, the Doctors have had me on few different antibiotics and now seems to be working against it, so hopefully be better soon.

hope this finds all well, and happy too!

The Magic Boot (achilles support)

So my new achilles night splint has arrived, or the magic boot as I prefer to call it! this should keep achilles stretched and help it develop strength and mean I wake up to less pain (hopefully pain free), and stop it over tightening after training, as at the  moment this is holding me back frommtraining my fitness has got better and my recovery is much better thanks to training and CurraNZ Sport supplement my muscles seem to be able to handle fast or distance runs just my achilles gets painfully tight.

so fingers crossed the magic boot works!

Back out today after a few days off, my achilles was painful after pushing the speed on my last run, so I had to take a break and let it settle down. So this afternoon I decided on a steady paced 6 miler, the route was slightly hilly but the weather improved as soon as I walked out the door and got hotter and hotter! by the end of the run think I must have been so red I would have glowed in the dark!

My mood has been really low during the period of the last few days I could not run, but after today's run I am in a much better frame of mind. I have said it before and will continue to promote the message that running/exercise does not make your problems and issues like depression and anxiety disappear, but it DOES help us to cope with them.

On a positive note,after the run where I pushed the pace it was only my achilles that suffered, otherwise I felt great and no soreness!, so I think the CurraNZ Sport is still doing its job.
