People are simple machines. We follow patterns and have automatic responses. It's useful to bear this in mind when dealing with life's more complicated aspects... Now if I could get some more sleep...

Still irritable but less so. Giving myself some time out. Although I'm not happy about it. Unexpected blast from the past phone call this morning from a drunk Welshman. Taken tablets.

(Backdated) I was super irritable so took a diazepam. Went to town, finished off the banking stuff and went to volunteering. Walked 5 miles back to the flat from town but my hip hurt. Took tablets.
John T
22h ·

I only walked back because I treated myself to a large calorific meal and thoughts if I walked I could work some of it off, and work off the rest later. Today's (was tomorrow) run was horrible because I just knew I couldn't push my hip through it.

John T
22h ·

So now I'm at home feeling sorry for myself. I feel as though the exercises I was given to prevent more hip injury have hurt me and it's uncomfortable to lie on my right side at night. I still want to aim for 25 minutes at the park run at end of Feb.

But I might have to push it back yet again to a later date. On a more positive note. I payed for a 10k race in the city centre in September. So that's my training goal for this year.

John T
22h ·

I just hope this discomfort goes away and doesn't turn into an injury like it has the last two times. My physio said to try and keep the running ticking over, but I'm very conscious of not pushing it, does the 8 minutes I did today even count?

John T
22h ·

I reckon if I stop being a mardy *** and think about this rationally I'll feel ok and be back aiming for 50 - 54 minutes in September. I felt so good mentally this morning but I haven't really got rid of the irritation underneath.

In spite of feeling irritable and sorry for yourself, and suffering from an injury you still are very productive and strong. Way to go! I'm sure you'll figure your hip out with the help of your physiotherapist. You are young and strong and healthy,

so I know it will get better and you'll get to your goal.

John T

Thank you! I hope so. We can get within 1 point of top if we win in the late game tonight. I'll listen on the radio and I'll probably be feeling even more tense than I am at the moment.

Good strength workout this morning. Felt I made up for yesterday's 'run'. Went food shopping. Watched the snooker on TV. Got distracted. Made a little progress with some music. Took tablets.

Opened bank account and ran 6.4km in 31 minutes 23 seconds. Which would be slower than usual on my normal route, but this needed proper pacing to cope with the hills. Took tablets.
John T

Despite being pleased with my run, I'm feeling guilty about food because I'm desperate to lower my body fat %. I can get free tea and coffee at the bank and use their pool table and games room too - bonus.

Took tablets after too much cake. Two day's worth of refined sugar in one hit. Doing press ups (push ups to NA) to try and use it up before it turns to fat. Probably OTT reaction but I feel like it.

Today I learned that my inflexibility is hindering my running. My legs are 'so tight you could play a tune on them'. Got stretches to do everyday. Alignment issues to work on. Stop using back and
John T
31 Dec 2018 ·

start using glutes. More glutes exercises to do. I don't propel myself forward efficiently and overuse my hip flexor. Foam roller ordered (finally Jeff!) Time to get bendy before I hit mid 30s!

Jeff M
31 Dec 2018 ·

Foam rollers are the best kind of pain! Stretches are great! Learn the best ones for hips and knees to avoid IT issues. Achilles stretches helped me a lot too! There are tons of great resources online!

Jeff M
31 Dec 2018 ·

I've been doing stretches for four months now. Haven't been running enough due to calf issue to tell if it makes a difference, but trying hard to keep flexible!

John T

I've got a personalised prescription of stretches and glutes exercises to do, Jeff, but of course I'll try and supplement this with extra/more varied stretches.
