Since my last marathon 2 weeks ago, I started having strange sensation affecting both 4th toes first thing in the morning only. It's not pain, not really pins and needles, goes away after a few steps, yet when I feel the toes with my fingers, they feel fine. I've been told they could be Morton's Neuroma, but I don't have pain or any other strange sensation on the ball of my toes or any other toes, I just feel it on my 4th toes.
Anyone had the same experience, what exactly is it, and what can I do to help?
I want to add hills to my training, and need some advice as to how to effectively fit that in to my weekly regime. There is a short sharp hill (~100m) that I can get to, but it's in a dodgy area, so I find it hard to fit that in during the week as I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark as of now (and for the next 6 months)!
I do parkruns every saturdays. and a long run on sundays. Would it work better if I do the hills after parkrun, or incorporate hills in my long run, or does it matter, or is there a different way of getting hills into my training? Thanks!
Wondering if anyone has any recommendation for running sports bra that dries easily and quickly? I have Nike that says 'keeps your skin dry' etc etc, mine's thoroughly soaked through by the end of a run even though my running top stays dry! Are there any that are more quick dry than others?
Hi Tom, I've tried various gels in the past, and tried Torq caffeine gels for my most recent marathon this year, and it's my personal favourite to date! Like CDUB72, I try not to use any gels during training runs, other than to test out new gels including any new flavours
Tim, that's an awesome pace and splits! Truly impressed! I went out with 'normal' shoes this morning and couldn't even walk without slip sliding away! Went straight back in, got my yaktrax on for the first time this year! A most enjoyable run in the end as I was taking my time running rather gingerly!
Angela, sorry to hear about your Raynaud's. Sarah via twitter @intrepidSarah blogged about how she deals with Raynaud's and running which may help:
