Hello Everyone,

After a crazy week back at school, I am finally online catching all that I have missed.

Good luck today everyone!

I am running an 18km LSD in 45 minutes from now. Should be good.

Have a good day!

Way to go, Katie! Sounds like you had fun and learned a lot for when you do it again. And from the sounds of it, you will do it again...

Thanks for all your hard work, IG! This, I hope, will help to keep me going this fall season (sometimes I let teaching consume me and drop off my running. Not this time, though...)

:cry: Just added mine up- 125 km.

So I am dwelling a bit...) Size 5-your totals inspire me! I think you're...

The above answers echo what I would reply to you, CK! After a few sessions of ART and making sure I always stretch my hamstrings and butt, I have kept this injury at bay now since May.

I know it is frustrating and painful. Keep stretching and following the great advice on RM!!

I am a fan (okay, I don't love it but know it is good for me!) of taking a ten minute ice-bath after a long/difficult run to prevent any sort of swelling or injuries. Then I take a hot bath to relax all my muscles. Seems to work for me, though I honestly don't know the science behind it as to why sp...
