ps she told me i have really flat feet like she does and said I might want to consider orthotics. However, she also said not to think about messing with such things before the marathon.
I'm getting married 8 months today woohoo!!!
on a running note.. going to the gym tonight... very cold outside! very lazy weekend after my 10 miler on friday but feel all the better for the rest!
Shades - Looks like it could stay that way for Sunday. My foot is hurting again after yesterdays race so I might not be there anyway!
LOL! @ Veryfastkowala
Khanivore - Glad you are feeling better. Massages help a lot I think, if you find the right person.
I've just got back from a pretty good 7 miler, with 10k of it at a quick (for me) pace. My achilles felt good and I felt the need to "blow the cobwebs away" after a couple of weeks of slow runs (or no runs). Splits for the 10K are below. This was on a flat route (6 and a bit times around Paignton Green, for those that know it) and I was lucky that I didn't get held up at all by cars etc. I was hoping that each mile would have been faster that the previous one, and I was really pleased with the result when I saw them.

4 07:24.1 1
5 07:15.7 1
6 07:12.8 1
7 01:38.0 0.23
Total 46:18.8 6.23
Route is here
I know this isn't strictly to plan, but I just fancied it today! I'll keep an eye on my achilles tomorrow but I'm hoping the issue is now sorted. I'm hoping to get along to club training on Wednesday, but we'll see.
NIce work Big G - is that along the beach? 46 mins for 10K - that's great .
Rattler - thanks. This was around Paignton Green. Once around Paignton Green is just slightly over 1 mile so I did that 6 and a bit times. The beach is in sight for about half of the circuit, but the run itself was on the pavement or road. It's pretty flat with an elevation gain of just 20ft according to my Garmin
Goodie got the charger for the garmin mailed up from parents. Can run properly again now Hard work gauging pace naked... Espically in the dark.
Khanivore - I have never advised you to run 15 miles with tendonitis in your hamstring. I would advise you not to run further than 4 or 5 miles at any one time and only if you are 100% pain free until your hamstring has healed and any running at slowest end of long run pace.
bootsie - those 8 months will fly by
VR - what foot injury, not your PF again?
I'm keeping an eye on the forecast, looks OK for here at the weekend but no change yet for Glos area. Will have to email votes for AGM if we don't go.
Big G - that's speedy
Slowkoala - after a very long run(or marathon) you will find that your weight increases slightly, this is after the dehydration of the run your body is unwilling to allow the body to dehydrate again so tends to hold fluid. By Wed/Thurs your weight wil be back to normal
So cold again this morning, nast NW wind and ice on the pavements/roads. Managed a gentle 6 miles with just a couple of patches where I had to slow to a walk to negotiate the ice.
VR - oh no, that doesn't sound good. Stress fractures rarely show on Xray until they start to heal but it would have shown after 2 weeks. Good time to go to A & E...chatting up the docs too. Did you get an NHS zimmer frame?
You could have hooted and waved, Smokes always does when he drives past me in the morning.
I have a slight niggle in my ankle, strapped it last night for Bodytone & Kettlecise and it's OK, has eased today
Slowkoala - glad the weight has settled back to normal.
Better to rest than run if the surface is icy,
I misunderstood and I thought you said it was ok to carry on with my plan based on the fact that the pain was not getting worse with running as long as I stretch thoroughly.
I will think about taking a longer break from running.
VR - Easiest way to find a SF is to blast it with a ultrasound. Kinda painful i hear though The less painful way is MRI imaging using the bone seeking markers for a clearer than standard MRI pic.
Speaking of hospitals was meaant to be having the remains of a tooth removed on friday but the dentist opted yesterday to send me to the hospital instead as the root is between two of the screws from when ihad my jaw surgery..... Bloody NHS dentists for you
i'm developing a bit of a niggling callus on the bottom of my right little toe. it's not causing me too much grief at the mo but it is starting to rub a bit. any ideas on how to either get rid of it or stop it getting in the way of my marathon prep?
supposed to be doing a 4 mile easy tonight but the pavements around us are currently like ice rinks. think i may leave it....
Some brave soles hitting the streets today, - nice one
I'm working from home today, which means I can probably get to run at the gym this morning if I work my schedule correctly - also means I can track emails on the BB.
I'm not a gym fan at all, sooooo boring on those treadmills , but hopefully I can do some tempo work and get 30 mins cross training on the rowing machine - and stay warm!!!
