The Quiet Before The Storm…

My last 10k race was the back in November and my last post in December. 2013 has been quiet or has it?

Exercise wise not much has been happening but I do have a reason. Honest guvnor!

Physio and injury wise let’s just say we’re still regular attenders.

And the reason…when I ran my last 10k I’d just discovered I was pregnant. Very exciting news.(I am SO using that as an excuse for my poorest attempt at a 10k so far).  Now I”d always been one for saying that should I be lucky enough to become pregnant that nothing would stop me keeping fit. I would of course continue to exercise and run all the way through. After all exercise is good for both mother and baby. Blah blah blah….

“You need to stop running” were the first words out my physio’s mouth. (OK So maybe he said congratulations first). “You’ve worked so hard to fix everything and now your body will produce relaxin and do all sorts of weird things that anything could happen to your hips”. Boom there it was, the excuse I’d been looking for…

It was also time to take a break from blogging. There will be another comeback in the next few months. The plans are still there, just postponed. However, I will continue to blog when I get back to running with my quickly purchased all terrain running pram with suspension!! Don’t worry, I have no intentions of blogging about running with my new addition, that may possibly become a separate blog cause clearly I’ll have so much time on my hands when I’m on maternity leave…



About klayire

In 2012 I completed my first ever marathon and raised £1843.96 for Alzheimer Scotland (Action on Dementia). Unfortunately I gained an injury. Initially thought to be IT Band I carried on running only to develop further injuries. By the time I crawled through the door of a private physio I had squint and twisted hips (this surely halves my marathon time as I clearly did double the distance with my snake hips!) , achilles tendonitis and shin splints. I was told there would be NO running for at least 5 months. The good news...back to running after 4 months; the not so good I'm straightened out further issues are appearing. But with the promise of being fixable I'm determined to get back to full fitness and run an ultramarathon. Yes Mr Physio, "with that knee!" I did however promise not to do this next week but have this as a future goal as he realised that..."you mean it don't you!" May 2011 Position: 5065. Time: Full marathon: 4 hours 15 mins 07 secs; 10k: 54 mins 06 secs; Half marathon: 1 hour 54 mins 44 secs; 30k – 2 hours 45 mins 30 secs.
