Sorry Dave - am out for a posh lunch with a school friend for her birthday that day. (Tonia, Susan.) Well done for getting out in the wind and rain after being in sunnier climes.
Does your autumn mara have to be in the UK?
What about Abingdon. Not a million miles from you.
Well, closer than Chester, anyway.
I am doing Chester !
Just watched Bon Jovi on the one show, now I understand what Jovi is on about
Just checking 2 marathons this year Susan
Foxy has one in June....
D the F, I think I would be up for that. Just need to check the diary...
Did fun running school this evening. Penultimate one, which I did with another guy. Who had an EMF tee shirt on. Darn him. Those tee shirts are following me around. There was a guy wearing one at Parkrun the other day and I was like DNF! Did Not Finish! Mooooop!
But I worked hard and really paid attention to heel, mid foot (ie ball) toes (little and big) placement one after the other on both feet. Sounds silly and obvious but I'm trying to eradicate my final detail of running issue, which is a noticeable but slight swing out in the right foot which leaves me with a pretty much permanent blister on the inside of the ball of my right foot and, I'm pretty certain, problematic knees. I think that's where it all came from at the outset. I have a 13 mile run on Sunday. That should sort out the man feet from the boy feet. Anxious!
Have to do a 7 mile hilly run tomorrow night too. Shame I'm already knackered. Having a snow day on Monday has really killed the rest of the week. Would like to go to bed now, as am knackered but need to do some college/school work before I'm allowed.
Ps Basey (manfriend) has an interview tomorrow for a really cool job at Imperial College. I pray that he gets it!
Scott I am doing Brathay Windermere Marathon in May.
Yes, I did see Mara retired. And yes, it was such a shame not to have met her .
I feel your Aga pain, too, FRC. Your wife's plan of yoga and light runs this week sounds good to me.
Keep the faith, Ikle. So hope you've got to the nub of the issue. How long do they say it'll take to perfect/solidify your new gait? Can you go back for check ups?
What does Basey do, Ikle? Am guessing he's some sort of academic?
the Yoga / 1-2 light runs at most was my plan Getting resistance from the Mrs now though. .. wanting to do more circuits and more runs... sure we've all felt good after a run but injuries can sneak up on you very quickly.
Mrs FRC usually only runs 15 miles a week (4/ 5/ 6-8)... has sneaked up to 18-25 an odd week with longer runs for this event.
Noone else get the attack of Munchies (craving food) after big runs/ events?
Definitely usually want to eat loads after a long event/run. Wierdly, I didn't after last week's long run.
