My lurgy is finally on the way out, but I fully expect to struggle in faster sessions and the two (yes TWO) races I have next week.
Hurrah for a diagnosis at least. So what do you do about it?
Yes what happens now?
CC2 - 2 races this week? Blimey you are brave! Good luck.
I don't know what is wrong with my foot. It is my left foot on the outer edge around the 5th metatarsal joint I think but a bit hard to pinpoint. sometimes it feels in front of this and sometimes behind. It hurts as my foot bends through the movement from heel to toe (not sure that makes sense but struggling to describe it.) It just appeared on the night after the marathon, I hadn't felt it during the race but I did have a big blister under my big toe on that foot and I thought it was just sore from running slightly differnt to avoid the blister. But 2 weeks later and it is still just as sore. It was more an ache than pain so I tried a run this morning but its not happy now. It didn't feel any worse during the run but was sorer afterwards. No pb is worth not being able to run Feel bad moaning after all the injury problems you've had. Been logging the miles on the road bike but it just isn't the same!
I'm so happy when it rains just now as I am fed up with all the fair weather runners passing my door. Sure they all know I'm injured and just do it in spite
Has the rest of the week gone to plan Kelly? any racing plans now provided there is no more trouble from your foot?
Still no running here, 3 weeks now. Feel like all that great winters training is slipping away and my ultra in July is under threat.
How did your races go CC2?
MrsD are you still around? What news?
5 miler was in the pouring rain but no wind. I managed to maintain roughly 10k PB pace (although that PB is rather soft) to finish 7th in 32.06, which is a PB only because my old one was really soft.
10 miler was in a howling gale but no rain. Managed to maintain something a little slower than HM pace to hold on for 2nd lady and County silver in 1.07.27 (another PB only because the previous one was soft) but it near killed me. My lungs did not appreciate the wind and my guts did not appreciate the dairy I've been eating.
Lol Kelly. Good to see you haven't lost your touch!
Well done CC2. I think that is pretty good going soon after a marathon.
The foot is hopefully on the mend. Fingers crossed. It had felt pretty good for a couple of days so chanced 3 miles yesterday. The first 0.5 mile it hurt, I stopped and stretched and rubbed the sore bit, then carried on but had decided to turn back for home and then it felt fine. So today I did 5 miles and was ok apart from a slight ache afterwards which I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't wasn't so paranoid. Won't run tomorrow to be cautious and then try again on Friday.
Legs didn't exactly feel sprightly mind but hooping that was due to the 30 windy bike miles yesterday and then 20 again this morning.
Kelly - Do you know anything about the Queen's Jubilee 10k at the weekend? I can't seem to find much about it and I'm just deciding whether its worth doing. Seems to be 2 laps of the parkrun course as far as I can tell.
Thanks for the heads up kelly - sounds best to steer clear then!
Good to hear you are running and getting back into the swing of things. I dont think it will take you long to get back to where you were, a few painful sessions will see the times back where you like them. Must be a relief to get clarification on your foot as well? You are a masochist wanting more miles?? now wanting more chocolate or alcohol I can see your point but miles?? thats just crazy!! lol.
Marathon training has started again and I am not sure what to expect this time, I have a target in mind but will see how training goes and I think the weather is going to play a big part since it could be very hot ( start of Sept).
