Have been quietly building up mileage and, fingers crossed, my knee woes appear to be gone. Averaged over 60 miles for the last 3 weeks including a hillyish local 10k in 36:13 which was pleasing. A month or so more of base building and then a 14 week build up to a marathon in Mablethorpe. Tis a small affair but pancake flat so hopefully conditions will be kind and I can get the sub 2:40 that I felt was on the cards at London before injury and illness struck.
Mr B - No need to apologise. It's actually made me doubly determined to get sub 2:40 in Oct. I think it's so much easier to keep to a pace when there's two people involved and both your splits were metronomic.
Incredible running all round by so many fredders at VLM.
I'll pick out Mr B for a special mention - not to congratulate, but to complain!! I work with your VLM running partner and you helped him smash my marathon time, earning him bragging rights for the foreseeable future
Saw the fizz again early this week and she dry-needled, ultra-sounded and massaged various bits of me, leaving my knee completely pain free. She advised me to go and see an osteopath as she suspect something was going with back/pelvis.
Saw an osteo today and he very quickly diagnosed a twisted pelvis, putting way too much pressure on my left hand side. He clicked and clacked away and felt great afterwards so hopefully it will the end of my troubles.
