    good luck at the docs
    Thanks gina, for weeks I've struggled on the treadmill but when your out doors you've gotta finish and get home!
    I don't know why I'm so worried about going to the docs, I mean if I had back pain I'd go so why I think I can't go with knee pain I don't know!

    they will probably blame the running. i dont like going to my docs, last time it was a food allergy i didnt know i had, but they instantly took one look and blamed it on a tongue piercing!

    i still get bad hip pains in my left leg but nothing will clear that up, its the leg i had to have physio on!

    Hi girls

    I've ben out of the loop a bit recently. Life seems to have taken over and my running has taken a step back. Beginning to panic a bit now - I ran 4 miles comfortably this morning, first time I have run outside for about 4 weeks, but I really need to get on with the marathon plan. Just need a kick, and another 3 or 4 days built into each week!

    Lucy - I had problems with my knees, not sure how to describe how it felt, but it was a pain at the bottom of each knee, like my knee cap was rubbing against something. I didn't go to the doctor, but I found that a rest over Christmas really helped. For me, I think it was just the pressure of having upped my miles, but if it had lasted any longer I would definitely have gone to the doctor - even if they say there is nothing wrong, as least you have been and got it checked out.

    Gosh, 9 weeks will fly by. You're up to 15 miles now aren't you? How was that? Getting past the half marathon distance is what it worrying me the most.

    it was alright at 15 miles, started with pains at 10 miles but nothing unbearable.
    its 15 next week, then it jumps to 17.5 miles the week after. im also doing a half marathon that day my milage goes up again, might do a quick 4.5 miles in the park after it

    my distance tracker died on me too, ut i knew i had 3 miles until the run home left when it died on me. lucky my HRM has a timer on it
    itsvawful having no idea how i did, felt terrible to be honest, going by what music id listened to i think id done maybe just under 20 minutes before my ankle went, then whatever walking jogging i did to get back home.

    ankles feeling better now and tomorrow shouls be a rest day... im tempted to do something but think ill leave it as restday as i can make sure my ankles okay then, on.monday i might stick with the crosstrainer as its easier on the snakles.

    sorry to hear it didnt go well. go to the docs at least if they can do anything you can get it sorted before it gets worse and quickly so you can get back to training.




    as far as i know ive run about 4 - 5 miles before (i know not much at all) how quickly did you build. up to running half marathons? theres one i wanted to do in march but dont know if thats going to give mw enough time. to push myself. when not measuring distance ive run 45 minutes none stop.

    Donna - I managed the jump from running 7-8 miles up to running half marathon distance in 4 weeks. But the bit in between, from running 3-4 miles to 7 - 8 miles took me a few months. That said, I didn't have a race or anything to aim from. I think if you do, it will give an extra push.

    Also, with a half marathon, even if you can't manage to run it all, you would definitely get round in a walk/jog/ run combination?

    thats what i did on my first half, i ran/walked/jogged
    found now im doing a better time on 13 miles doing all jogging, and avoiding going quick. it works for me, so im sticking to that plan. i did 13 miles in around 2hrs 40 yesterday, my race half time was close to 3 hours
