Hello! I'm sorry that I've not been looking on here for ages. I'm so pleased to find some runners with Parkinson's ....we'll, I'm not pleased you have Parkinson's, but you know what I mean.
So, how's it going? I ran my last marathon in 2001, London. Have done two others, plus a couple of mountain marathons too. This evening I am very pleased with myself for running a whole 1.75 mile route without stopping to walk. Was hard work & by the end I was more lolloping than running! This is a problem which leads to injuries, which leads to no running, which leads to fall in fitness levels, morale takes a dive, blah blah blah. However, I'm finding working with a very keen & understanding Pilates instructor, having regular remedial massage & not giving in to the Parkinson's is really helping. I know that when I wake in the morning I'm going to be very stiff & achy & wonder why I keep doing it. But I can do it so I will do it.
Please keep posting stuff about your running & I'll look for that artical mentioned by Runner. Annie, you try to run every day? Well done, keep it up!
Looking forward to hearing more from you both. Any others??
