London is soon going to be on it, I can't wait in all honesty I'm buzzing for it ran 13miles today at around a average of 8min mile! Which is pretty good, where I am there is lots of hills which will help for London! :)

Nice, so you're aiming for a sub 4 then?  Tough to do at London so don't be too disappointed.

After two weeks of non running do to knee pain, I bought a foam roller. I can't believe how much those things hurt.
Saying that, I feel like a spring lamb this morning. Hopefully be back in the saddle/on the road asap.

Registered for the Great Midland Run (Sutton Fun Run) today. Looking for a time of about 1h15m.

8.5 mile run (been running for about 3 months after being a heavy smoker)

Following on from this - still suffering from knee/leg pain so after two visits to my local GP I've been referred to the physio - closest appointment is 15th September.

I'm trying to improve my quad strength by various exercises (leg lifts etc) but when even a bike ride leaves me hobbling the next day, I'm ready to throw the towel in.

I got sent an excellent document called 'Bulletproof Knees' by John Kreeger of this parish a while ago, I shared it with Legion as well.  If you want it you can get it from this link to my Dropbox account, it's well worth a read and hopefully it will help.

It is excellent too. Comrade Blitz sent me a copy - I've been working my way through the exercises but still in pain. Some days better than others but running completely out of the question for now. I've just got to keep plugging away at it.

I registered for the Two Castles Run on 8th June (Warwick to Kenilworth) and I'm not going to make it due to injury - if anyone wants to do this run, I'll transfer the details over. Its a £20 entrance fee.

Thought I'd put it on here before I approach the waiting list.

Supplementing quad strengthening with glute bridges (can't do squats atm) and adductor/abductor strengthening for me at least seems to have accelerated knee recovery. The theory being that if you strengthen everything around the knee it doesn't have to work as hard.

After not running for approximately 5 weeks due to back problems I managed to get out yesterday. Only did two miles to check the back was ok and it's all fine so I have 2 and and half weeks to train for The Great Midland Fun Run.
