I ran 2:44:11 this year off the Hansons 60-80mpw plan, which I bought as a PDF from their site.
The Pfitzinger 70-85mpw plan from Advanced Marathoning is also a great one.
That's what I have; Osteitis Pubis, or "pubic bone stress". On my MRI my Pubis symphysis showed up as white-hot.
It's been a miserable experience which has lasted for several years. Since the London Marathon this year it's been especially bad.
I should rest for weeks, work on my core strength and gradually return to running - but don't, because I'm a tit.
Is sneezing absolute agony?
The postie has just delivered my Mizuno Wave Inspire 11s. They feel ok for size, so I think I'll try them on today's GA 7mi.
This week is a recovery week, with just some 200m reps on Thursday.
I did 49.98mi this week.
After yesterday's speedwork, my legs were feeling stiff on today's 10mi Endurance.
I also had what I think was an exertional headache after the last rep yesterday. I've never had one before..and don't want one again.
