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???

Kaz, that is great news. I don't like the sound of injections! Even the GP looked like he doesn't like giving them. (I always tell people it's not as bad as they think it's going to be... When I'm a patient and I know it's going to be tough, I don't really want the doctor describing exactly the sort of anguish I'm going to be put through... That being said I also use as much local anaesthetic as is safe for procedures, in everyone.)

Rob, I'm going to follow your advice, continue massage etc and alternate day plods. That means I really do have to shake the CBA then...!

Have a good Friday everyone.

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!

Yeah very lucky in on the second round.would of been gutted to have missed out.had a fab time in Berlin this booked aswell sorted...
23/11/2012 at 20:09

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

Hello all, managed to get a place last Saturday but didn't want to post a message until I actually saw name on runners' list. Recognise a few names from the lovely Paris forum. Bit sad I won't be running it again in April but looking forward to VLM. and of course Berlin.
24/11/2012 at 00:54
Dotty - hi. Great too see you again.
Congrats on getting a place.
Did you get into VLM via the ballot?
24/11/2012 at 08:12
Thank you Orbutt. I managed to sneak into VLM by the GFA route. It still was a big surprise to actually get in. Trying to get a place to run in Berlin was equally exciting as the site kept crashing just as I was about to register.
How's training for Paris going?
24/11/2012 at 10:00

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!

24/11/2012 at 20:15
Well done Sticky88! Will keep fingers crossed for you. Is it your running club that has organised the competition? Is it the same park run for next five weeks?

Orbutt, what plan are you using? Has Tricky Dicky come up with a fiendish plan for you? I'm training for training at the moment, trying to up my weekly mileage and build some endurance into my legs again. Up to 40 miles a week.
24/11/2012 at 23:13

That is all...
25/11/2012 at 00:37
Dotty - Tricky hasn't come up with an evil plan but I'm using a combination of his evil half plan and P&D to find something that fits in with my work/life/running balance.
Are you up to 40 or building up to 40?
