Poacher - is it acute or chronic? I had an acute case that went away quite quickly once I addressed it (it was gait related as I adapted to new orthotics which were inserted to help with my achilles issues *insert confused emoticon*)
Speaking of injuries, my achilles won't STFU since VLM. I think I have triggered something running hard with a sprained ankle and it won't stop niggling. So I am taking several weeks to properly let the thing die down. No trail marathon with lovely views for me next month after all . I am committed to a 10K with the club on Monday but will not be racing that one.
Nice speedy miles there, KR.I reckon you just need to find a night marathon to get your sub-3.
Hope things improve Gerard. Glad you are able to see a window coming up for more training Abbers and that Bike It is now looking in good shape for Comrades.
Nice 10 milers, Ferg and Westy. How old is your daughter to be doing The Tempest at school?
madbee - nice to be back enjoying easy running I bet! I did a few speed sessions post-VLM which was probably a few sessions too many. Still, now I know ...
andrews - I think I need to take a leaf from your book and let myself recover properly from London. I am no longer young and recovery needs as much attention as training. With that in mind, I had a protein shake for breakfast using my new NutriBullet.
Another rest day here I think to give my achilles more time. I have a sports massage scheduled this morning which should help iron out any remaining creases. I may try an easy run tomorrow and then see if I have any zip in them on Thursday or Friday before we head into the bank holiday weekend and Monday's 10K.
