I agree with the jogging bit, I've been alternating running (3.5miles) with these workouts, so I'm doing something 6 days a week.

Quite tired by the weekend!

Might be tendonitis - if so, ice, rest...

Might be nerve related - go to my blog (WWW link below) hit the nerve glide link.

thanx vbm, but i think it's more a matter or tendonitis as opposed to nerves. i'm seeing the physio again on thursday.

i haven't been posting much this week as it is my rest week - and i'm not talking active rest, i'm talking complete rest. i'm trying to get my elbow back into shape again, but i'm afraid at the pace it's healing, i might have to rest week as well.
i'm following everybody's logs daily though and i'm very frustrated that i'm "standing still", whilst all of of you are making progress - i'm jealous!!!!

Sorry to hear that Ruli. I remember when I started running again after a long break I threw myself into it and quickly knackered my knee so much so that I could hardly walk. Taking a month of was exceedingly frustrating because I was enjoying it so much. Now I'm pacing myself better.

Try to enjoy the rest, but, fear not, you'll come back stronger (maybe not physically as such, but you know what I mean!!)

Just remember that the main thing here is to take the rest time you need, get healthy and follow the advice of the physio guys. It sucks, but you're better off getting healed and pacing yourself than risking a serious injury that could put you out for months. Stay positive and remember that fitness isn't a race, it's a lifestyle! A week or two off isn't that long when you think you have the rest of your life to "stay fit"!

i cannot agree with you more anubis!!!
i have officially been diagnosed with "biceps tendonitis in the anterior cubital fossa." what that means is there is inflamation where my bicep joins the elbow, as opposed to the shoulder. according to the physio it is very rare to have the inflamation there - the more common place is to have it where the biceps joins the shoulder.
be that as it may, i'm off for at leats another week. the physio also prescribed voltaren anti-inflamatory tablets which i'm now taking. hopefully it will help speed up the recovery process.
enjoy your weekend!!!

I took Voltarol (same thing as Voltaren) when I had an inflammation of the nerves in my neck (most excruciating pain I've ever felt). It cleared me up in just over a week.

Hope the same works for you.

Take it easy and have a great weekend.

OK, so today was supposed to be the start of week 9 for me on SF, but as what can be seen from an extract of my personal log below, it wasn't!
at least i went jogging after work - something i haven't done during my previous rest/injury weeks, so i'm realy proud of myself!!!! and truth be told, i realy enjoyed the run! i did the same route as what i ran before i started SF, and i did it in quite good "form". i didn't time myself, but i knew where i used to walk, or took a rest break and comparing today's run with what happened in the past, i'd say i'm pretty much on par. and achieving that after not running for +/- 3 months shows me that SF works - my fitness lvl on the run hasn't dropped!!!!!!

WEEK LEVEL DATE
1 1 01/06/2009
2 1 08/06/2009
3 1 15/06/2009
4 Rest 22/06/2009
5 Injured 29/06/2009
6 1 06/07/2009
7 1 13/07/2009
8 2 20/07/2009
9 Rest 27/07/2009

Ruli, glad to hear that you feel that you're making progress (despite the injury).

Personally, I love timing my runs as I'm always amazed by the progress I seem to be making. It's incredibly satisfying to know you did better than last time.

Hope the elbows clears up soon so you can start beating your SF scores!

You're doing more than I do, Ruli. I do my routine at the gym, then the SF routine 2-3 days per week and that's it. I have a gym branch in the same plaza as my office, so maybe I could figure out some sort of routine/plan to get a 4th day in.
