The best of the big 5!
The greatest thing about running is, in my humble opinion, is that even if you've a great race, you always want to better it.
I may have the mentality all wrong, or maybe it's because I'm a below average runner at best, but the psychological side is, to me, so interesting.
Saw my GP today - unfortunately tells me to continue to layoff running, to let the PF settle. I've been referred for orthotics. The physio was of little use. Basically, I've put about a stone on since Berlin and am shockingly low. I may have to disobey the practitioner... I need to get back to the gym too...
Still, 135 days to Paris, room for improvement!
I think I have a touch of that Iain. Pain at front of heel 'pad' towards the inside?
Its not too bad and I'm trying to keep working on calf knots to try and ease it, but also making sure I have a full day off between runs at the moment.
Sticky - top picture. How did you get on in the dash?
Iain - once I got my orthotics I could run within a week relatively pain free, then 1 month on all was ok???
Thanks EHN, Radar Sal, Orbutt, DLR.
DLR, very pleased with the Dash - a PB of 46:58. That completes my PB collection for this year in all categories - 5k, 10k, half and full!
Didn't get into the Asics 26.2 thing, so hoping to run all 6 parkruns from this weekend for a chance to win a place at VLM!
Hope your PF gets better soon IM2!
Sticky - that's a great year!
Well done Dawsey - must have been one of the last places
Got my personal code yesterday having got in on the second round last Saturday so definately in with hotel and flights sorted too - brilliant.
2013 looking a busy one with Mumbai Marathon (Jan), Thames Trot 50 miler (Feb), Warwick Castle Half Mara (March), VLM (April), Comrades (June) plus a few 5/10k's here and there.
Sticky - what a great year. Terrific!
I had PF for a while a few years back. Lots of calf and foot stretches along with strengthen exercises and it's sorted now with always remembering to stretch my calves after each run.
dawesy & baljc - welcome on board
baljc - some cracking races you've got lined up there. The Comrades - wow
Dotty - Good for you.
I know what you mean about sites crashing. I was on holiday when Paris opened and that kept going toes up. Then when I got home, had a look at Berlin and, as luck would have it , registration had just opened - so I got in. Phew
I'm just into proper training for Paris.
Started a little early to allow for any eventualities. Cold, dark, wet but enjoying it - for now
First of 6 parkruns done - 5 to go for a chance at VLM. Very very pleased with a PB, and the icing is position 1 on the female points table . Gloating is not optional as this may be the only week I'm allowed to have a big grin over this!
