Vote cast, DS2 . . . .

Thanks for the votes people - really appreciated!

I promise I won't be sh!te!

Minni - this is a bit shameless but any chance of you influencing the sub 3:30 thread and for those on Sub 3, could I ask to spread the word on there. Some of them may remember me from 2005 and onwards. I transferred to sub 3;15 when I realised this was more realistic!

2 days of unplanned rest here, I will have to get out in the snow tonight. Busy at work and have rellies visiting so it looks like another poor running week.

Can somebody remove the questionmarks against me on the list- it's making me nervous...

DS2 - another vote your way.

I hope that the snow/cold isn't causing too many problems for you all. When I go out for a run later I plan on wrapping up warm enough that should I slip over I just bounce on my layers.

Some very impressive long runs begining to appear this weekend- it's enough to make me feel a bit jealous of you all gettign ready for Marathon training! Planning on my first run over HM distance this weekend since the marathon. Very little to report here, just trying to add in some new routes/hills etc.

+1 vote for DS2. Good luck.

Nice cameo Ant.

6miles for me last night and a 10 miler planned for the cold and dark later.

Of course DS2!

Vote cast for DS2. Do us proud!

Now I'm really confused.

I went to see an osteopath today. He is convinced I don't need any shoe inserts or orthotics, but what's needed is to correct my hip alignment. He set about doing this and it was pretty grim, with lots of cracks and crunches. The worst part was when he set about my (apparently) gnarled and twisted abductor, which has been pulling on my pubis and causing pain. He used suction cupping massage and it was one of the painful things I've ever experienced. However he assured me it was highly effective in these cases and saved hours of convential massage time.

So apparently I should ditch the shoe insert and stop the ab work I'd been recommended, and just concentrate on obliques til the discomfort has completely ceased.

Only time will tell if he's right (he's very well-renowned in these parts and was very thorough in his examination, something the physios who I'd previously seen and who'd recommended totally different things were not). In any case I see myself with little alternative but to follow his advice as six months on I am still struggling with this most niggling of injuries.

Back for another session on Monday, "normal" running til then.

Another vote for DS2 (decidely dodgey photo in my opinion)

Ant Hope all the pain is worth it (maybe I am judging DS2 photo by your high standards?)

Badbark As soon as I read your name I was thinking of your other halves undergarments. Welcome back.

5.5 miles slow 9mm bimble tonight. Windy but warm where I am at the moment.

Ant - must be worth a go and something radically different may be what's needed. Good luck.

Interestingly a couple of people at bootcamp hot told to stop wearing orthotics as well.

Scooby - harsh about the photo, but probably fair.

Thanks to both for the votes.

Scooby, it's neither windy nor at all warm here. I ran in the warmest part of the day, at +5 and now the frost is kicking in again. Talk about being chuffed though, tonight's run flowed out at 7:30m/m for the 10k and an average HR of 138. Splits and Hr drift was rock solid. I was amazed. I don't deserve to deliver that. Maybe there's a new training plan. Sod everything, just do 20 milers once a fortnight.

Ant - bear with the suction stuff, it may work. I had it a while back after ripping a neck muscle (OUCH), it seemed to help.

Badbark - rest assured, your smalls have not been forgotten. Looks like you have good speed, just need to add endurance over the last few miles. Good luck.

DS - vote cast.
05/12/2012 at 20:45

Thanks Poacher!

Blisters - good going especially with no HR drift. Maybe if I don't get sub 3:15 next spring I'll try that plan!

05/12/2012 at 21:11
Yes, welcome back Badbark!!

DS2, why were they told to ditch the orthotics (i've worn them for the past 3 years)?
