Cabbey - been vegan for about three months, had a couple of slips while moving house and being starving with nowt vegan to eat in the house. Thinkingh ahead to the run, considering whether to suspend veganism for the week, as I think the running will be hard enough - may not be able to hold off the caramel shortbread. Also not organised enough to have food sortedin my kit bag for the overnight. Not sure yet, but wondering if the extra pressure might be a bit much - may try running with wraps to see if I can get that working.
Emma - sounds like a plan, take it easy. I find uneven ground aggravates it more.
Reading that people have their long runs in the bag is a bit scary - longest I've done is a marathon, and no real back to backs. Moving house andf constant DIY has eaten up all my time and the wonky foot has taken its toll. Saying which, I ran the Kielder Marathon with the longest I'd run before that being a half - it wasn't pretty, but I made it through...
Emma - totally not disagreeing with your physio, but thought it worth mentioning that when I bruised the bone on my foot last year (running on large sharp rocks in 3mm sole barefoot shoes and not watching my footing), the pain lasted for a couple of months before it went away, Hope you can get a quick MRI and it turns out to be OK - as a long time veggie and relatively new vegan, it still makes me laugh that I can eat some pretty unhealthy stuff should I wish. Chips are the great leveller, unless you head into raw food territory.
