good luck everyone.....went for a 4mi lunch time and felt pain on my foot again (it looks as if it is the tendon from big toe). longest run so far has been a 15mi....I am coming to the conclusion that I will miss the race and just enjoy Paris (4x nights already booked).....
hi all, have had pain on top of right foot and had to rest for 2 weeks(ice, stretching, yoga). still not 100% but hopefully will be in Paris for the race.
I booked a doctor's appointment for next week. In case I do not manage to get the cert. signed (went to GP end of Dec-2013 with Achilles problems), what would the other options be? It seems that people "fake" the cert. (which I do not intend to do).
hope everybody is on course for a nice day in Paris
I am on the same boat....After the Berlin marathon last year I developed tendonitis on the Achilles (right foot). Replace my Nike Pegasus 29 with a Ghost6 and the pain on the tendon+blisters went away overnight. However now I feel the same symptons described by you guys. For the past 2 weeks I have been resting and icing the foot. Today went for a gentle 4mi jog. Felt okay however I know that there is something wrong there.
I am reading about Metatarsalgia and it looks spot on.
Drinking to thirst - I get very thirsty later on in runs and most articles I've read recon that if you're thirsty, then you're already de-hydrated. How does this approach work?
I think this is absolutely right. I went for a 20mi during training for Berlin. Ended run really thirsty, felt sick and end up in A&E. I was told by doctor that I was de-hydrated. Best thing to happen to me. During Berlin marathon I kept hydrating all along the course: result felt really good at the end of race, no problems whatsoever (only knees let me down).
