Tina S I injured myself almost 8 weeks through over training. I hurt my inside calf muscle, through doing too much with no rest days in between. I was running 3-4 times a week and cycling twice. I completed an awesome triathlon and had no rest day then went unto a 15 km run the ext day. Very bad idea, my calf hurt the whole time and I did not stop, at the end I could barely walk. I was own crutches for 2 days and now 2 months later I am still not allowed to run. Physio said next week I can try a short 10 min run ,my calf still hurts though....
I am frustrated beyond belief, I have had sports physio treatments including dry needling etc. I am praying for healing soon. I wear Nike Lunarlon 4
Tina S is taking the Recovery tools - Legs up the wall! - after every long workout (60min>) Challenge
Tina S Just entered my first mountain run 22km run up Tomewin Mountain in QLD, it has a 14% gradient at some points so will be pretty hairy stuff!

Tina S I am entering a local 22km mountain race the hills are up to 14% gradient so I am pretty worried! I have only ever run on the road before so it will be different.

Tina S answered the question Carb loading, do you guys step it up for long runs? How do you manage?
I fin dit easier to drink a sports designed protein/ carb shake before my run rather than eat extra carbs with my meal. I also use the gels or glucose tabs if I am going out for over 15kms

I run to clear my head and get into a positive mind space. When I run it makes me believe I can conquor anything. It has made me challeng emyself and what I can do.
