So tried the new #nikereactflyknit2 out and all good
Felt very different to my #hokamach and hard to explain why... softer but harder underfoot (i know that doesn't make sense ๐Ÿ˜›) whats really good is my hamstrings are mega tight at present and i seemed to cope ok on the run. #nike #runnerlife

New shoes. Wanted a recovery run shoe. Tried #hokaclifton5knit last week but werent a great fit and although different to my current #hokamach i didnt enjoy the firmer mesh as much. So time to try the #nikeepicreactflyknit2 . Will let you know. Although the council cut the hedges in my lane yesterday so road littered with hawthorn spikes. Do i trash new shoes???? #marathonrunner #runnersofinstagram #nike

Injury recovery day 4. Nice to be back at 5k on my regular route on a beautiful sunny but chilly morning. Calf great, hamstrings v.tight. lots of stretching to be done this pm. Well done all those racing today, London looked fast with lots of pbs. #hamstrings #beautifuldayforarun #marathonrunner #marathontraining #runnerlife #runnersworld #instarunners #5krun #runnersofinstagram

Baby steps day 3!!!! Woke up aching and with a headache fearing i had caught @amberleeeeeey #lurgy but pushed myself outside in a bitter but sunny day for 3k and no calf issues day3๐Ÿ˜€. Had a bath and now feel great. Long spin sess coming up cheering on the boys #englandrugby #sixnations #injuryrecovery #marathonrunner #marathontraining #instarunners #runnerlife #sickdaughter #runnersofinstagram
Kudos to all those racing today its not nice out there....

Baby steps. 1st run since 21st Jan when my calf pulled for the 2nd time. All good today. Strained back last Sat literally getting out of bed FFS. Had a dreadful weekend in agony. Physio on Monday improved it. Hopefully final treatment on back & calf tonight....#fingercrossed๐Ÿคž #sportsinjury #marathonrunner #runnerlife #marathontraining #instarunners

Warning another iced calf photo.... saw physio again last week and we discussed post NYD marathon pain i was suffering at rear of knee and whether its associated to lower calf tear; he diagnosed a strained Popliteus muscle (interesting article here) https://burlingtonsportstherapy.com/2018/03/08/pain-in-the-back-of-the-knee-popliteus-strain-and-or-tendinopathy/ basically on long runs when hamstrings tire this small muscle can get overused / strained. Possibility this then puts extra strain on the Gastrocnemius and hey presto we have a reason for the tear. This important to me as i always seek a reason behind injuries and try and taking that learning forward. Physio treated both issues and more improvement seen last week. Had 2 full on 1 hr spinning sessions Sun/Mon all good. Able to walk at full pace yesterday and broke out into easy jogs again all ok. Single leg calf raises completely painless and no tightness / hotspots with rollers etc so took the plunge and went out for a test jog.... 1k in loving the well missed sensation of running, my calf pulled slightly i eased off completely and headed back and a few paces later it pulled further. So limped homeโ˜นโ˜นโ˜น dreams of near future races abandoned and thoroughly p.off with myself. #startingrehabagain #injuredrunner #willieverlearn #impatient #furiouswithmyself #ffs #runnerlife #instarunners #marathonrunner #gastrocnemiustear #popliteusrecovery

I know i have calf tear but its healing quickly and seeing that the #nikevaporfly4percent came into stock yesterday in my size after waiting for 3 months i couldn't resist. Been jogging up and down in the lounge and amazing rebound bounce from them. Not just hype i compared to my hoka machs which i love btw one type on each foot and a significant difference. More lift and bounce and interestingly also noticed the same impact if i heel strike which i dont normally. Can't wait to go out and try them properly but they maybe a couple of weeks away... or does a jog in the lounge mean i am road ready?๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Calf update... dont panic thats not swelling its an ice pack under my Skins! Saw my physio today and the official diagnosis is a tear to my lateral gastrocnemius apparently thats unusual as normally its the medial larger insertion which goes and the lateral is a better injury as less pressure on that area. Even better news is i could be running again in 2 week's ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. Fingers crossed for me please. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐ŸคžFortunately i am able to spin still but not at full intensity and have been taking my weight/strength training a bit more seriously so lots of upper bod Doms for a change. Hopefully a couple of weeks off running will also help a few other niggles recover.

Disaster just popped my calf on a easy 5k recovery run. Was supposed to be running an ultra on Sun #severleypissedoff

#instarunners

1st run since NYD Marathon as have been nursing some "niggles". Wore my #hokachallengeratr5 as easier on PF and joints in general. Felt good and hopefully this weeks rehab will hold me in good stead for next weekends Ultra attempt. #firstultramarathon #ultramarathon #marathonrunner #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #instafitness #runnerlife #runnersworld #runningmotivation #insta #instagram #instafit #instaphoto
