Day 12: Six Running Likes and Dislikes

Things I’ve discovered I’m fond and not so fond of since running. In no particular order:

Just when I was starting to fall out with social media I discovered the joys of Strava. Tracking my own runs is really useful and keeping up with what others from the club are doing and leaving the occasional message makes it a must-have.

The Sacroiliac Joint Pain



This was a new one on me. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had a problem with this joint at the end of a 10k run. The physio identified it straight away and explained that sometimes the ilium can shift out of place. As well as localised pain, it meant I was running with one leg about 1 inch longer than the other. This is a recurring issue and a bit of a nuisance.

Post-Run Selfies

Happy running buddies at the end of the NICE 10K

You’re always guaranteed to have a host of smiling faces behind you when you take a selfie at the end of a run.

IT Band Pain



Another anatomical dislike – ITB Syndrome is the other injury I’ve had treatment for. It’s quite painful and tends to come on 3 or 4 miles into a run.

parkrun emails

These emails are always eagerly awaited, usually 2 or 3 hours after the parkrun has finished, and especially if I’ve made an effort and hoping for a PB.

Running with my daughters


This was definitely one of the loveliest moments of the year – running with both my daughters at Cannon Hill parkrun earlier in the summer. An absolute pleasure!

    1. Sorry to hear you suffer from this as well. I’ve managed to keep it under control these past few weeks and hope it will stay that way as my miles increase. I don’t think the camber on pavements help, actually.
