Thank you! PB for marathon (3:09) so happy with that. I've booked in an appointment with the Podiatrist so hope to get things clarified! Planning to rest now till Saturday - silly idea running last night so soon after the marathon (what are we like!).
Thanks for your advice, shall be foam rollering tonight.
Just after some advice. I ran a marathon on sunday. Prior to this and during the marathon I have been absolutely injury free. After the marathon I felt some pain when driving home in my left knee when extending to the clutch.
I did a gentle jog last night and experienced this pain in my outer left knee at the side. I'm hoping this is just some post marathon inflammation but would welcome your thoughts.
I was prescribed custom made orthotics about a year ago and have been pain free since. However, I tend to get stiffness in my outer calfs, ITB and outer knee and having been watched running by a sports masseur, have been advised that I am on the front, outside of my feet which is obviously putting a lot of strain on these areas. I have noticed this on some post race photos, as I do tend to land on my outer foot. Having said that, I am running very well and getting faster!
My first thoughts were have the orthotics over-compensated too much and therefore altered my gait excessively, as opposed to helping me to run in a neutral position?
3 hours 9 for me. Happy with that, just lost it a bit in the final 3.
Had a bit of a stressful morning, I'd planned to park in the Football Stadium Car Park but having left Altrincham at 7.45 am, went the wrong way! By the time I got reasonably close all the roads were closed, then proceeded to get lost so abandoned my car and walked/slow jogged 2 miles to the start with 10mins to spare!
Fantastic support and organisation, I thought the water pouches were a great idea, though would have preferred a bottle. No isotonic drinks either?
