Pfitzinger and Latter's book is really good too - plans in it for 5k, 10k, 10 miles, half marathon and multiple distances, and good explanations of what sessions you do and why. I also like that they've got plans from 'low' mileage (35 ish miles a week) upwards. I can't see me ever getting beyond the low miles, but it's good to have options.
Bursitis is back, nothing else. Consultant wants to inject again as he'd rather that than surgically remove the bursa as that will cause scar tissue and potentially leave me in pain over the long term. Have agreed to wait a couple of months and review.
I'm back. Achilles is okay, saw another physio (my usual one) and she said not to panic, just do loads of stretching etc.
On the foot front, it's the bursitis continuing to play up, nothing more sinister. Got to try another cortisone injection but need to see the consultant for this as it's not something the GP would do due to the position (between my big toe and second toe), so that means waiting a bit for it.
Ran a 10k race yesterday and was delighted - did lots of mountain biking and not a lot of running during August, but clocked 44:53 on my watch. My dream time was sub 45:30 so I couldn't believe how strong I felt all things considered. There was a short sharp uphill to finish, and halfway up something came over me and I stormed past two people in front of me. Here's hoping the comeback will last this time!
